GLL appreciates all volunteers who grab a rake or a drag mat after a game and help maintain a field. However, improper maintenance can do more harm than good. Improper raking causes damage to our fields in the form of lips and valleys that can ruin a field very quickly.
The two most important rules to know are to ALWAYS rake base paths in the direction of the path itself, NEVER side-to-side across the path, and ALWAYS rake the mound from the bottom to the top. Raking from the top down pushes dirt into the grass and forms uneven edges around the mound. Check out this document for further details and more pictures: Maintaining base paths and mound
Show your pride in Grafton Little League by proudly wearing an Under Armour sweatshirt embroidered with our league logo. New for 2013, these sweatshirts are available in both youth and adult sizes for $58.00 (each). This price is only good on orders received by May 25, 2013. After that, the price will increase to $63.00 (each).
Details on sizes and how to order are included on the attached PDF: 2013 GLL Sweatshirt Flyer
If you ordered a sweatshirt at the Opening Day Ceremonies, they will be ready for pick-up in approximately 2 weeks.
