WMLL believes in “safety first” & is an active participant in Little League International’s “A Safety Awareness Program”.
Players, coaches, spectators & umpires are expected to be careful, to use good judgment & to adhere to the following safety rules.
Peanut ban: For the safety of players & spectators with peanut allergies WMLL does not allow peanuts anywhere at the ballpark.
Player drop offs: Please do not pull into WMLL’s main parking lot for drop-offs or pick-ups as there are many players & children in the area – instead use the designated “drop off” zone on Forward Drive just to the north of the main parking lot entrance.
Note: Any cars that park in WMLL’s parking lot without a WMLL coach’s pass or handicap sticker or plate will be ticketed.
Severe weather: When threatening weather approaches, seek appropriate shelter. Do not move under trees!
Note: When lighting is visible, games will be suspended for 30 minutes and all coaches, players, spectators and umpires are expected to take immediate shelter in the dugouts, near the concession stand, picnic porch or in private vehicles to insure their safety. If the delay continues to a total of 45 minutes, that game will be postponed & rescheduled per current rules.
Safe play: Remind your children to be careful on the playground equipment & to refrain from playing on or underneath bleachers.
Errant balls: Be on the lookout for foul & thrown balls at all times.
Facility cleanliness & safety: Help keep WMLL’s fields, grounds & facilities neat, clean & safe. Clean up after yourself & report any safety or hygiene concerns to the concession stand.
Safe warm up: Players should warm-up away from crowds & traffic patterns & must not swing bats outside playing field fences, unless they are in a batting cage or soft-toss station.
