Thank you for being a part of our baseball family!

Registration FAQs

Is my player eligible to play with Escondido American Little League? 

>Be careful, there are 2 different Little Leagues here in Escondido. We follow official Little League International guidelines regarding eligibility. A player must live or go to school in our league’s boundaries to be eligible to play with EALL. Please enter your home or school address into the Little League Finder to see which league you are eligible for. If both addresses are outside our boundaries, you must contact the other league to register with them. You cannot play for EALL if you are within the boundaries of another league. Please check your eligibility before registering. 

How much does registration cost and what does that fee cover?
>The price of registration can be found on our Important Information page. The price of registration will cover the player’s jersey and hat. These fees also help us pay for all the gear provided to each team, pay for umpires, facilities and maintenance fees for the lights and grounds as well as keeping our snack bar running.

What Division should my player be in?
> Visit our Divisions Offered page for more information.

What is the Snack Bar Buyout or Deposit fee I see on my registration?
>
We need parent/family support to ensure that our Snack Bar can be up and running on all game days. We ask that parents volunteer their time to work one (1) shift in the snack bar. This can be scheduled at a time that works well for you. To help make sure this happens, we collect a $20 (Fall) or $40 (Spring) deposit up front and then this amount will be refunded to you in cash when you work your shift. The volunteer must be at least 13 years old.
>Some families prefer to donate this amount instead of working the shift. This is equally helpful for keeping our Snack Bar running because these donations are used to pay our teenage employees. 
>Any questions about working your snack bar shift can be directed to your Team Parent or to our Snack Bar Coordinator at [email protected]

Can I request for my player to be on the same team as a friend or sibling? Can I request a particular Coach?
>In the T-Ball and Rookies divisions, we accept teammate requests for siblings or friends and Coach/Manager requests. Please just fill in these requests on your registration form. We do our best to make these requests happen since it is our goal  to ensure that all kids and families have a great experience.
>In the Minor B division and above, we do not take player or coach requests since we will do a traditional tryout and draft to form teams. We do, however, keep siblings on the same team if the parent requests.

What other gear does my player need?
Your player will need a glove, cleats, helmet and a bat and preferably a “bat bag” to carry it all. In T-ball and Rookies, there may be an option to wait and borrow gear from the Manager for a few weeks to make sure you know what to purchase. 
> 
For practices, players should wear comfortable pants and a t-shirt. A light sweatshirt or jacket might be needed for Fall evenings. 
> 
Families will also need to purchase socks, a belt and baseball pants to match their team uniform. Please wait to purchase theses until the Team manager tells you what colors to buy.



When do I find out what team my player is on?  -and-  When do I find out when practices will be?

Fall Season

Spring Season

  • After tryouts, teams will be formed by a draft. Once teams are formed, your new Team Manager (head coach) will call or email you directly to let you know the name of the team and when practices will be. Please note: It is a very quick turnaround so you may not know your exact practice day/time until less than a week before practices start.

  • You will need to attend our HAT DAY event at Dick’s Sporting Goods. That is where you will meet your Team Manager, find out what team you are on, when practices will be, and what color the uniform will be. This also gives you a chance to shop for matching socks, belt and pants and any other gear you may need. See our Important Dates page for date, time and location.




When will the games be?
> General information regarding when games will be for your particular division can be found on our Divisions Offered Page. Specific game schedules will be given to you directly from your Team Manager/Team Parent after practices have started.
