Summer Sandlot
by posted 04/20/2018


To all DLL families with players in Rookie through Juniors/Seniors:  Registration for Summer Sandlot Baseball (SSB) is currently open until May 1. These Summer Sandlot Ball Groups run from early July to mid-August, and are run by coaches from DLL's 2018 Spring Rookie through Juniors divisions. As summer coaches are limited, the number of teams available is also limited, so interested players need to register early to guarantee a spot on a team.  Player eligibility for DLL's SSB sessions will be based on the player's division of play during the 2018 Spring season.  Players will be assigned to a team by the player agent and announced prior to the first session.

We have the registration open for a limited time as we need to get our field allocations to the county by May this year to guarantee our usual fields for the summer program.  Because of our tight deadline, late registrations may not be considered for spots on a team.

Important Information about Summer Sandlot this year:

What is Summer Sandlot?  SSB is a chance to play baseball 2x a week during weeknights at the level you were playing in the Spring to be competitive but have a relaxed atmosphere, and letting the players just play.

Who Can Play?  Players from a Spring Rookie through Seniors team can register for the SAME division.  Note: This program is not for new players to the game, it is expected that players from the Spring are capable of playing under their Spring rules with a moderate amount of coaching from the adult coach.  You must sign up for the same division played in Spring.  e.g: Rookie Players may NOT register for Single A, etc.   You can move up to the next division in Fall Baseball.  Summer is to get the players in the same divisions playing competitively with their friends in a summer setting.  NOTE: League age 12 Majors players should sign up for the Seniors Sandlot program.  This is the only exception.

Will There Be Teams?  Yes, We have altered the format of the team structure in the past.  This summer, players will be put onto regular teams with a few adult "coaches" to supervise the same players throughout the summer.  Player Agents will create teams like they do in Fall Season to create the teams

What if I go on Vacation?  No worries, we understand that most kids miss several games in the summer, and the players per team is increased to account for this.  At the cost of the summer session, it is still worth to sign up even if you miss several of the games.  Just let your coaches know when you will not be there.

Will there be umpires?  No.  SSB relies on parent-coach involvement to have someone calling balls/strikes from behind the pitcher and outs in the field.  Games will still follow all DLL safety rules and coaches will be instructed on these rules prior to the season. Players with helmets usually help out as base-coaches for their team-mates and gets them more involved in the actual game-play when they are not the batter/base-runner.

Can I coach?  Yes, please.  Register as a manager for the Summer Program so DLL can run the appropriate background checks and select managers for the teams.  We would like as many volunteers as possible to help out because of vacation schedules.  Training is not provided, but the players on these teams should know how to play at this point.  Coaches are there to keep the game moving and monitor the safety of the players.

How much is it?   Registration fee of $50 per player covers insurance, county field fees, and tee-shirt.  No refunds after payment are made. 

When is it?   Play is expected to begin the week of July 9.  If your player misses some sessions due to other activities/plans, you can still register them and have them participate in the remaining sessions.   Games usually start at 6:30 on weeknights.

  • Rookie:  Games are Monday and Wednesday at Farmwell Fields 1 and 2
  • Single A: Games are scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays at Farmwell Fields 1 and 2
  • AA:  Games are Monday and Wednesday at Crittenden Fields 1 and 2
  • AAA/Majors: Games are scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays at Crittenden Fields 1 and 2
  • Seniors:  Games are Tuesdays and Thursdays at a field TBD.  May include inter-league play with other summer programs

Lost and Found
by posted 03/01/2014

Since DLL is run by volunteers, we do not have a central office.  If you need to check for a lost item, or if you need to return a found item, please stop by the Crittenden concession stand.  

The Crittenden concession stand is usually open on weeknights whenever two or more games are being played at Crittenden.  It is also usually open on Saturdays from at least 10:30am until roughly 2pm whenever two or more games are being played at Crittenden.  The concession stand is closed on Sundays.  Please understand that the concession stand schedule is subject to change based on the DLL schedule, volunteer availability (to run the concession stand), and field/weather conditions.

Help Ensure Receipt of Emails from DLL
by posted 01/02/2013

Many email programs will block email that fits the criteria that they define as Spam or Junk email. While this can sometimes be helpful, mail that you might be expecting from DLL or our online service provider could get accidentally blocked by your email program's spam filters.

If you were expecting an email from DLL prior to whitelisting us, and did not receive it in your Inbox, you may want to check your Junk, Spam and/or Bulk mail folders to see if it was delivered there by your spam filter.

To prevent this from happening, you will need to put DLL on your safe list of addresses to guarantee that you receive our emails. Some email programs refer to this as "whitelisting" or a "safe or trusted sender list." If you cannot find this option in your email program, or do not know how to add us to your list, please review your email program's help documents for more information.

Some programs require just the domain name to be placed in the Address Book. In that case, you would need to add: leagueathletics.com and dulleslittleleague.org.

If you need to add addresses, please try the following:

The asterisk at the beginning allows any address from DLL to be placed in your whitelist. If this does not work, the most frequently used individual addresses are:
