Generous Gift to Homer Little League

The Cortland Community Service Club’s feathered representative made a stop by Griggs Field in Homer this week. First Prize winner of the Corn Ducky Derby, Steve Franco, donated the prize money to Homer Little League to help replace aging bullpens. Players were excited having a new mascot for the day, and are looking forward to the field improvements.

Homer LL All Star Teams

Any current head coach or assistant coach who wishes to manage an all star team this summer must submit his or her name to their division director by May 24. The Homer LL board will then vote and select team managers prior to player tryouts.

Any child, baseball age 8 and up, wishing to try out for an all star team should attend tryouts on Saturday June 2 from 9 AM to 10:30 AM. In addition to a players play throughout the entire regular season we use try outs as an additional time to evaluate each player which in turn helps each manager build the best possible all star team.

As long as we get enough players Homer LL will field all star teams at the 12U, 11U and 10U level this summer. By LL rule, players must be at least 8 years old (“baseball 8”) to try out for an all star team.

All of our All-Star teams will compete in the New York State District 8 International Tournaments. At the 12U level, the tournament is known world wide as the Little League World Series Tournament. All teams that make it to the LL World Series start off by playing in and winning their district tournament. Winning district teams advance to section tournament play, Winners of sections advance to state tournament play. Winners of states advance to regional play. And winners of regional’s advance to Williamsport, Pa for the LL World Series.

Players who make an all star team will be required to pay an additional fee to help cover the costs of uniforms and tournament entry fees. If you have any questions please feel free to email a division director or see them in person at Griggs on a game day/night.
