  4. Can I add another email address to receive emails? Yes - Please select link for instructions on how to add an additional email address. 
  5. Evaluations for the 2020 Spring Season will be held Saturday March 7th at Dexter High School. There will be no makeup date for evaluations. If your player can’t make evals they will not receive a score and will be placed randomly on a team based on need.
  6. What are evaluations? Evaluations allow the coaches to assess the players; the players are all given a score for different skills. Our coaches use these scores during the draft to create fair and equitable teams. The evaluation scores are not shared with anyone except the coaches of each division.
  7. Does my child have to attend evaluations? Players in all divisions, including tee ball, are expected to attend evaluations.
  8. What do we need to bring to evaluations? All players should bring ball glove, bat, helmet (if they have one) and wear sneakers (no cleats). Players will be running, hitting, catching and throwing; and should dress accordingly.
  9. What happens after evaluations? All players are drafted to teams the week after evaluations.  Under most circumstances, you should hear from a coach soon after the draft.
  10. What is the volunteer requirement?  Dexter Little League is a volunteer run organization and we rely on our families to help make the league successful. One of the requirements of participation in the league may be that families assist with concession stand duty. The concession stand manager schedules all baseball and softball teams for their times (during their regular game time).  It is up to the team to decide how to assign (or ask for volunteers to) staff the stand. Two adults are required to be in the stand at all times (three during Saturday games).
  11. Rainout process:  detailed rainout policy is on our website, but decisions are usually made by 4:30 pm on game  
    days. We send emails, texts, and update social media in the event of cancelled games. 
  12. What nights will we play? Traditionally, Minors & Majors Softball Divisions & Juniors Baseball Teams play 
    interleague/travel games.  Game nights and schedules are created at the district level and are not created by 
    Dexter Little Leagues.  Game nights listed below are not guaranteed for any division.
        ** Minors, Majors & Juniors Softball and Juniors Baseball travel throughout the county for away games ** 
           
    Tentative Spring 2020 Game Day Schedules

    divisions based on registration numbers and field availability ***

      
  13. What nights will practice be? Where are practices held? Practices are scheduled by the coaches and most 
    will take place on local fields (including the Metropark fields).
  14. What uniform & equipment will my child need to play?  Included in your registration fee, softball players will be provided with a jersey, pants, socks and a headband; and baseball players with a jersey, pants, hat, and socks.  This is for all divisions, for the Spring season. Players just need cleats, and a ball glove! Most players have their own bat, however, if your player doesn't have their own, they can share with their teammates.
  15. How do I know what size uniform to order for my child?  Please follow this link to the size chart
  16. My child’s actual age is different than the Little League age.  Please refer to the age determination charts on our website. 
  17. What is the difference between Seniors, Juniors, Intermediate 50/70, Majors, Minors, etc? Juniors, Majors, Minors (Machine Pitch & Player Pitch) & Tee Ball are the division names assigned to different age  groups of players. These ages are all based on the registration age
