Frequently Asked QuestionsUpdated Monday March 18, 2019 by Macomb Township Little League Baseball.
1) How long does the 2019 Spring Season run?
Games will begin April 22nd (weather permitting) and end by July 2nd. LLWS tournament teams (if selected) may run longer. Practices can begin once teams are drafted. Typically, Coaches will schedule 1-2 indoor batting practices and move outside as soon as the weather breaks. Note: Coach Pitch & Tee Ball start 2 weeks later (1st week of May)
2) When are practices held?
Practice fields/times are reserved by the Manager through our website and can be on any day of the week. The Manager is in charge of scheduling practices. If you are unavailable on a certain day for practice you should inform the Coach of this and they may be able to work around any conflicts.
3) What time are the games?
Weekend games can be held 10am - 8pm.
Weekday games for Tee-ball and Coach Pitch start at 6pm.
Weekday games for Intermediate and Senior start at 5:30pm and 8pm due to more innings being played in those divisions.
4) What Days are the games on?
Below is an outline of how we structure the game schedule. This information depends on how many teams we end up having and may be altered slightly.
Tee-Ball and Coach Pitch - You choose Mon/Wed/Sat, Tues/Thurs/Sat, or no preference. You will have two games a week on 2 of those 3 days.

6) When are rain outs made up?

7) Are Metal Cleats allowed?
Metal cleats can only be worn in the teenage divisions (Intermediate & Senior).
8) How do I get a refund?
The policy is refunds are given up until 3/1/19. After 3/1/19 it depends on when you are requesting the refund and how much of the registration money the league has spent. It's much easier for us to just say "no refunds after 3/1," which is the policy, but we try to work with our community when and if we can.
