FLL Field Helper Guide
Fairport Little League
Field Helper Guide

Fairport Little League is a not-for-profit organization run entirely by volunteers.  Although we hire a contractor to cut the grass and perform general maintenance, the health of our playing fields depends on the Fairport Little League participants helping out from time to time to keep the fields playable and in good shape.
 
The first rule is to do not harm.  See below the list of things to never do.  Otherwise, there are several simple things that parents and players can do to help out.  Most of these tasks take only a few minutes before or after a game or practice.  Fairport Little League makes tools available to perform these tasks, such as rakes, shovels, and field drags.  These tools can usually be found at the equipment shed located in the middle of the Lyndon Road complex (near field nos. 2 and 5).
 
Pre or Post Game/Practice General Maintenance:
 
  1. Rake in the edges.  Using a wide landscape rake, rake all loose infield dirt away from the grass edge and in toward the playing field.  Rake in all edges where the dirt meets the grass.  Never rake the dirt toward the grass edge or into the grass.
  2. Level area around all bases.  Pull the bases (except home plate) and use a rake or shovel to reduce mounding around the bases.  If the mounding is compacted, use a rake or shovel to break up the mounding, then rake smooth.  Use excess dirt to fill low spots, which are usually found:  in the area of the right-handed batter’s box; the area where players slide into second and third base; and the area where first baseman stands.  After leveling the base area, clean out the base plugs and replace the bases.
  3. Smooth the dirt.  After the dirt has been raked in from the edges, the area around the bases leveled, and any low spots filled in, you are ready to drag the field to smooth out the dirt.  The field drags are metal chain link mats, approximately 3 feet by 4 feet.  They are easiest to transport rolled up.  After dragging the field, roll up the drag on the dirt and carry it back to the equipment shed.  Never pull the drag from the dirt area into the grass area.  If a drag is not immediately available, a wide landscaping rake can be used to smooth out the infield.
  4. Check the mound.  Gently rake the mound to smooth the dirt and to fill in any low spots, which are usually found immediately in front of the rubber and wherever the pitcher’s foot lands.  After filling low spots, stomp down on those areas to compress the dirt.  Never use a rake or shovel to break up the surface of the mound or to knock down what appear to be high spots on the mound.  If a mound needs repairs that are more involved than filling typical low spots, please let your league director know about it.
All of the above tasks take two adults 5-10 minutes to perform if one person drags the field and the other person performs all other tasks.  Players can help out with adult supervision.  

 
Wet Conditions:
 
If you encounter wet conditions or puddles have formed on the field, there are ways to remove standing water, but Never rake, sweep or squeegee water from the dirt onto the grass.  Over time, doing this ruins the fields by making low spots even lower and killing the grass that gets covered in infield mix.
 
To remove standing water, you may use a large plastic shovel (located in the equipment shed) to scoop the water (water only - no dirt) and dump the water in the grass area.  You may also use the water removal sponges and mop buckets (also located in the equipment shed) to soak up water off the field.

After removing standing water, scarify the wet areas with a metal pronged rake to facilitate drying.  After raking, you may sparingly apply infield conditioner to the affected area and rake the conditioner into the dirt. Never dump a bag of conditioner into a puddle or muddy area.  Too much conditioner ruins the fields by making the dirt much too dry after the wet weather subsides.  Bags of conditioner are located on a pallet behind the FLL tractor garage (behind the scoreboard for field no. 2 - near the back of the Lyndon Road complex).

Enhancements to Our Softball Program

Fairport Little League is forming teams at all levels of our Softball program.  We have reviewed the current division formats and instituted a number of changes to improve the quality of play and provide an improved experience for all players.
 
We have identified a need for focusing on youth pitching and are conducting a weekly pitcher and catcher clinic that has had significant participation. We believe that quality pitching will provide more valuable games for all players and teams.
 
For Minors, we have instituted a number of rule changes to improve the level of play and introduce the girls to a fuller game at a younger age and help in the transition to the next level.   
 
Fairport Majors and Minors divisions will combine with Pittsford Little League to enhance our programs.  This continues the success we have had in Majors in previous years of playing with Pittsford in a light travel schedule that has provided a fun, rewarding experience. 
 
This year, Fairport Majors will be participating in a District 4 “play date weekend” at the end of May in which we send our teams to play with the other towns in a fun cross town event. This kicked off last season to great success we are excited to participate this year. Teams will be based on player/coach availability.  There is no additional cost for playing in this tournament as Fairport Little League will cover all costs.  This is a great opportunity for our girls to play against surrounding towns.
 
Both Minors and Majors will have post season tournament opportunities and extended summer play.
 
In the next few weeks we will be wrapping up registration and forming teams. We have openings remaining so please get your registrations in as we look forward to a great 2016 and beyond!
 
Thank you
