General Info

The following is a look at how Grafton Little League is structured and how it operates.  Please feel free to contact any of our Board of Director members if you have questions.


Children that reside within the GLL Boundaries, and\or attend a school within the GLL boundaries, are eligible to play for GLL and are also eligible for GLL All Star tournament teams.  Children that do not reside within the GLL boundaries and do not attend a school within the GLL boundaries are still able to play for GLL (pending roster availability) but these children are not eligible for All Star tournament teams.


Registration for T-Ball, Baseball and Softball is done online and starts late November each year; baseball and softball registration runs until the end of January, while T-Ball and Challenger registration runs until the end of March. Visit the registration page for more information on registering.

An interest-free installment payment plan is available for the Baseball & Softball divisions when registering online. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, Grafton Little League will work with you to assure that all children that want to play Little League Baseball, Softball or T-Ball have that opportunity; we have a limited number of scholarships available.


Team Managers, along with their Assistant Coaches, will draft the Baseball and Softball teams in late February; Rookies and T-Ball teams are formed after registrations close. Team managers will contact parents to introduce themselves and inform you what team your child is on.


There is a Family Meeting in April for players & parents. At this meeting you will hear details about the GLL season; players will also meet their coaches and receive their team cap.


Team managers will set the practice schedule and the league will set the game schedule. All GLL events are uploaded into the schedule on TeamSnap. Practices are scheduled for weekday evenings and weekends. Games fall on different days of the week depending on division and Saturday games can occur in all divisions.

    • Minors, Intermediates, and Juniors practice starts in April and games run April - July.
      • Minors games are typically Mondays and Wednesdays.
      • Intermediates games are typically Tuesdays and Thursdays.
      • Juniors games may fall on different days of the week.

TeamSnap and email are the primary communication tools used by GLL.

  • Team Managers will communicate team specific information to you.
  • The GLL President and other Board members will occasionally send mass emails to the entire league for league-wide news and special events.
  • Game and practice rain out information will be communicated via TeamSnap sent to your mobile phone.
  • Email addresses for the GLL Board of Directors are posted on this website; please feel free to contact them with any questions or concerns.


Individual and team pictures will be taken in May.


It takes a large and dedicated group of passionate volunteers to deliver a successful Little League program for our players and parents. Volunteer opportunities include manager, coach, board member, concessions, field maintenance, special events, etc. Please consider volunteering your time to help GLL, it is a great way to give back to the community and it is very rewarding.


GLL has been very fortunate to have a core group of loyal sponsors that have been with us for several years; we also have new sponsors join us each year. It is through the generosity of these sponsors that we are able to continue to offer our Little League program. Please review our list of sponsors and consider using them for your needs and services when possible. If you are a business interested in sponsoring GLL, please contact a GLL Board Member.


Each year, GLL organizes a Mid-Season Celebration to take place the Saturday after school gets out. The fun-filled day's activities include games at the complex, ceremonies, team parades, divisional contests, bounce houses, a dunk tank, concessions all day, and our annual Ball Throw Contest. Prizes for the raffle are also drawn live during the day.


GLL typically will field four baseball All Star teams (8-10, 9-11, 10-12, 13-14).  The All Star teams will represent GLL in district competition held in mid-July; the 12 year olds have the opportunity to advance to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.  Players that do not live within the GLL boundaries and do not attend a school within the GLL boundaries are not eligible for All Star teams.


Each year Grafton Little League awards a $1000 college scholarship to a Grafton High School senior.  The primary criteria for evaluating applicants is:

  • Years of participation in Grafton Little League
  • Years of participation in Grafton High School Baseball or Softball
  • Years of volunteering for Grafton Little League (umpire/assistant coach/other activities)
  • Community Volunteering
