Due to decreased participation the AAA level will be consolidating down to seven teams from eight to ensure sufficient players for games.
To minimize disruption the players previously on the Advantage Scaffolding team are placed on new teams.
The team previously named West End Chiro will now go forward with the Advantage Scaffolding team name. If your son moved you will receive both an email from your coach and the Kid Pitch Player Agent Troy Rickord.

To our Little League families and players,
The SLPLL board met on Sunday evening to discuss the latest developments to the 2020 season. The Covid-19 pandemic continues, but as part of the Stay Safe Plan the governor has allowed youth sports to restart practices in small groups following social distancing guidelines. Below are the links to the CDC plan and the announcement by the MN Department of Health. In addition, the city has begun to allow the permitting and usage of fields.
As part of permitting, the city required the league to create and submit a Back to Baseball Plan. We have completed this process and received approval from the city to begin the season. Please see the SLPLL website for our Back to Baseball Plan.
KID PITCH (ages 9-12)
The board has decided to begin the kid-pitch season for players 9-12 years old. The plan is for Majors players to begin practicing on Monday, 6/15. Each team will be split into two groups during their practice time. Currently the governor has not approved game play but we are hopeful that there can be games starting 7/7. The season will conclude with an end of season tournament in mid-August if game play is approved.
Before we begin, we need to determine who is interested in playing, based on the known risks, so that we can finalize teams. If you choose not to play, a refund of your registration fee will be provided. Please complete the following survey by 12am on Wednesday, June 10. Click HERE for the survey.
After a week of observing Majors practices, if all goes well, we will begin practices for AAA and AA in late June.
Prior to attending practice, each player and coach will be required to complete a Covid-19 waiver.
MACHINE PITCH (ages 5-8)
The board voted unanimously to cancel and refund registration fees for the 2020 spring/summer season for machine-pitch ages 5-8 yrs. It was a painful decision, but for ages 5-8 it would be extremely difficult to follow social distancing guidelines. If we see improvements or changes in the Covid-19 pandemic we plan on hosting a fall baseball season.
Machine-pitch levels do not need to complete the survey listed above. You will receive a refund of your registration fees.
We need to work with Sports Engine to process the refunds for all machine-pitch players as well as any kid-pitch players that are requesting a cancellation. Please be patient. We hope to have these complete by 7/1.
Here are the CDC guidelines for the return of youth sports. Please review. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/youth-sports.html
MN Health Department:
Registration is closed for kid pitch (9-12) and machine pitch (5-8) levels. If you questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org Or check out FAQ page here.
After discussions with our board members and in line with Little League International recommendations, we are canceling player evaluations on March 14-15 and March 21.
Player evaluations are just one element of creating our teams for the 2020 season. Coach feedback from the end of the previous season is often more reflective of a player's ability, and we are confident we can build balanced regular season teams based on that information. All registered players will be placed on teams, including players who are new to the league and may not have 2019 end-of-season feedback.
We will collect volunteer deposit checks at a later date when distributing uniforms.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this rapidly changing situation. We will continue to follow the guidelines set by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Minnesota Department of Public Health, Hennepin County, and St. Louis Park Public Schools.
Please watch for further updates over the next few weeks.
