Local and Ground Rules


Article I



The purpose of the Uvalde Little League (ULL) is to implant in our youth the ideals of sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and respect for leadership


The Board of Directors shall be governed by the Constitution of the League on record in Williamsport, PA.  The Uvalde Little League operating rules and bylaws shall be approved by a majority vote of the Board of Directors.  Following adoption of these rules by the Board, they may only be changed upon the concurring vote of the majority of the Board.  These rules pertain to all Uvalde Little League.

The Nominating Committee’s purpose is to ensure that there will be enough persons interested in being on the Board of Directors to fill all the possible positions.

  4. When the election portion of the annual meeting takes place, the first order of business is to determine if a quorum is present.
  5. Once quorum is established, it is proper to determine how many members are to be elected to the board. The local constitution establishes a number that should be elected but this number can be increased or decreased depending on need by a two-thirds majority of the board members present.

Article IV


All managers, coaches, and volunteers who provide regular services to ULL or have repetitive access or contact with players and teams must complete and submit an official “Little League Volunteer Application,” to the board of directors and satisfactorily complete a background check.  Refusal or failing to submit a fully completed application will result in the immediate dismissal of the individual from the league.  Volunteers can include, but not limited to:  managers, coaches, umpires, team moms, concession workers, parents who assist at practice, and Board of Directors.

All managers and coaches are responsible to help on work days, check playing conditions, and clean and rake field following their respective games.  Mangers and coaches from both teams should work together to line and mark the fields before the games and also to return equipment and bases to the storage room after games.

Minor and Major Baseball managers MUST keep track of pitch count sheets and place them in binder located in press box immediately after the game.  Pitch count sheet MUST be signed by umpire and opposing coach.

Minor and Major Baseball and Softball scorebook MUST be used and signed by umpire immediately after the game.

All managers and coaches MUST attend a coach meeting and sign code of conduct rules.

All teams will be assigned umpiring duties at some time.  Managers and coaches will be required to fulfill these duties.  Failure to fulfill duties will result in a one game suspension for the manager.


Any volunteer who is arrested for any felony offense or any offense involving moral turpitude shall report the arrest to the Board within 72 hours.  Any volunteer who is convicted, pleads guilty or no contest, or receives deferred adjudication for such an offense shall also report that event to the Board within 72 hours.  The Board will discuss such violations within 48 hours of notification.

Moral turpitude includes but is not limited to:

1.       Dishonesty, fraud, deceit, theft, misrepresentation

2.       Deliberate violence

3.       Base, bile, or depraved acts that are intended to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of the actor

5.       Acts constituting public intoxication, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol/drugs, or disorderly conduct, if any two or more acts are committed within any 12-month period

6.       Acts constituting abuse under the Texas Family Code.

Managers will be responsible for the conduct of the themselves, their coaches, team players and parents of the team members.  Manager and coaches will abide by the Coaches Code of Conduct.  It is important that managers and coaches understand the responsibility and potential they have to mold and influence child’s life, their impression of adults, the sport of baseball, and youth sports in general.  Any public display of physical or verbal abuse towards players, parents, coaches, umpires, board members, or league volunteers are grounds for disciplinary action.

An ejection from a game or league complex of player, manager, coach, volunteer, parent and/or fan due to unsportsmanlike conduct will be followed up and brought to the attention of the Board.  The meeting will consist of the board, the manager, and the person involved on a case by case bases for status review.  Upon review of the violation, the individual can have action taken against them by the Board.

Any person in violation of any of the Official Little League Rules and ULL bylaws may result in disciplinary action by the Board in accordance with those rules.  Additional penalties may be levied by the Board.  This is at the discretion of the board.  Anonymous allegations will be discarded unless they can be documented or corroborated in writing through independent means.

Action levels to be taken by the Board include but not limited to:

1.       Consultation with the league President

2.       Letter of Reprimand from the Board

3.       Suspension of volunteer from participating in games

4.       Suspension of the volunteer for remainder of the season

5.       Not favorably considered for future Little League Appointments

Article V


The actions, on or off the field, of players, managers, coaches, umpires, and league officials must be above reproach.  Any player, manager, coach, umpire, or league representative who is involved in a verbal or physical altercation, or an incident of unsportsmanlike conduct, at the game site or any other Little League activity including through online or social media, is subject to disciplinary action by the Board of Directors.

Disciplinary action for player misconduct will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the disciplinary committee.

The disciplinary committee is composed of the Baseball and Softball Player Agent and the President.

Article VI


Umpiring is one of the most important and often overlooked aspects of the Little League program.  We are lucky in ULL to have volunteer umpires and they are as much a part of Little League as any other volunteer.

Umpires MUST sign scorebooks (Baseball/Softball) and pitch count sheets (Baseball) in order for compensation.

Little League feels there is no sound reason for paying umpires or any other person volunteering.  While the Board agrees with Little League, there are situations during the season to pay a reasonable fee to the umpires.  The Board has given authority to the President and Umpire-in-Chief to determine a reasonable fee to be paid upon completion of services.  A reasonable fee may be paid for umpires when volunteer services cannot be met in the Minor, Major, and Junior/Senior Divisions.  Umpires will only be paid when they are in full uniform, use appropriate equipment, and are in the proper position to call the game; i.e. umpire responsible for balls and strikes will call from behind home plate.

The Umpire-in-Chief will make umpiring assignments for all games.  Only ULL approved managers, coaches, umpires or individuals approved by the Umpire-in-Chief will be allowed to umpire both home and bases.  Managers and coaches will adhere to the following guidelines.

1.       A qualified umpire is one who knows the rules of Little League (baseball/softball) and can conduct themselves in accordance with Little League Rules and Regulations.  Managers will be given a rule book before the season and are expected to read and study the rules.

2.       The home plate umpire is in charge of the field of play at all times.  Managers and Coaches will follow protocol for speaking with umpires.

3.       All managers must attend a Coaches Clinic.  Managers will not receive their league equipment if they have not attended a clinic.  Managers will be responsible for passing information learned to their coaches.

4.       Umpiring duties may be assigned to coaches in the following ways:

a.       T-ball/Coach Pitch:  no umpires will be needed

b.       Minor Divisions:  The managers and coaches will assist at the minor level.  One paid umpire behind the plate, and one manager/coach on the bases.

c.       Major Divisions:  The managers and coaches will assist at the major level.  One paid umpire behind the plate, and on manager/coach on the bases.

d.       Managers and coaches will assist the Umpire-in-Chief as needed, on any level.

5.       When a team is assigned umpire duty, a representative for that team must show up to assist the plate umpire.  In cases where umpire(s) do not show or failure to provide umpires, the manager of the team assigned to umpire duty will be subject to assuming the next available duties of the two participating teams of the game missed.  Intentional or multiple violations will result in game suspension of the manger for the next game.  Missed umpire duty will be recorded and used for consideration for tournament team coaches and future Little League positions.

6.       If a team wants to trade umpire duty with another team, to reassign that responsibility, the division coordinator must be notified within 24 hours prior to the game.  Failure to notify will result in the originally assigned team being held responsible for umpire duties.

7.       Exceptions will be permitted by the umpire-in-chief or the league president to appoint emergency substitutes when necessary.  This emergency appointment does not relieve the manager or coach of their responsibilities.

8.       Verification of the baseball pitch count will be confirmed by the umpires with the team’s scorekeeper in the middle of each inning, and upon the removal/change/retire of each pitcher.  This applies to the minor divisions and above.  The manager will be responsible for ensuring that the pitch count is accurate.

9.       The official scorebook keeper will be the HOME team for rulings on the field by umpires.  The official pitch count log will be kept by the VISITING team.
