Safety Awareness Plan
The MCLL Safety Awareness Program Manual outlines the MCLL emergency plan, how to report an accident and more.

Bat Rules
MCLL adheres to the Little League bat rules/guidance (i.e. sizes, markings, etc.).

Concussion Fact Sheet
CDC Heads Up Concussion Guide is a good resource to quickly learn about concussion protocol.

Pitch Count Rules
The eligibility of a player to pitch in a Little League game is governed by a tiered pitch count that is tied to the number of pitches thrown in a game. The pitch count determines how many days of rest are required before said player may pitch again.

Background Checks
As part of Little League’s Child Protection Program, local leagues must conduct background checks on all volunteers who provide regular/recurring service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams.
