Georgia Rookie and Sandlot Tournaments

Starting in 2012, Georgia District Administrators established Special Games Tournaments in Georgia for younger players who did not meet the age requirements for Little League International Tournaments. Rookie Baseball and Softball Special Games Tournaments are for players league age 7 and 8. Sandlot Baseball and Softball Special Games Tournaments are for players league age 8 and 9. Players who participate in these Rookie and Sandlot Special Games Tournaments are also eligible to be selected for age-appropriate Little League International Tournaments.

Each Georgia district holds their own Rookie and Sandlot tournaments and then advances 2 teams in each division to participate in a Georgia Sectional Tournament: NW (districts 1, 2, 3, 4), NE (districts 6, 7, 10) and South (districts 5, 8).

The Sectional Tournament Champions advance to the Georgia State Rookie and Sandlot Special Games Tournaments held over the Father's Day weekend in Warner Robins. Warner Robins Little League hosts the preliminary games and the Championship games are played at the SE Region's Stadium, adjacent to Warner Robins Little League.

For information about the dates, schedules and rules, visit our Rookie and Sandlot pages under the Tournaments heading at the top of this page. These tournaments are completely under the supervision of Georgia District Administrators and questions concerning these tournaments should be directed to your local District Administrator and not to Region or International staff.

Parent Confession: I Shouted Down My Daughter’s Softball Chants

I am a baseball guy. I'm still involved in recreation leagues. As a kid, I played Little League Baseball. My wife played Little League Softball. Our daughter is a good ball player and could have easily played baseball. I pushed her to do so, but she decided on softball. My wife was pleased. I was disappointed.

That disappointment quickly grew at my daughter's first softball game of the season, and it had nothing to do with the play on the field or the coaching. I couldn't handle the chanting. Okay, I know every Little League team has some degree of chanting, baseball for sure, but what I heard on the softball field made me think the girls should have pom-poms, not gloves. And, the chants didn't only come from the dugout. In the field, the girls would yell things like "two outs, one to go, say two outs one to go" then they would slap their foot with their hand.

Our Children Become the Messages They Hear the Most

Picture the young baseball player stepping onto the mound in the final inning of the championship game. What is he thinking in that moment?

Think of the basketball player, standing on the free throw line needing to make two free throws to send the game into overtime. Is he thinking about making the shots, or worried about missing them?

Each of these athletes has a voice in his head, a voice telling him he is strong enough, he is calm enough, he is brave enough, you ARE enough for this moment.

Or, that voice may be saying something completely different. That he is not enough. That he is not prepared. That he chokes in big moments. Who determines what that voice is saying?

We do. Read more.....

 
Nomar Garciaparra’s Views on Specialization

Nomar Garciaparra has added his name to the list of high-profile athletes to speak out against young athletes specializing in just one sport.

The six-time All-Star who played in the majors from 1996 to 2009 says specialization is a real problem in youth sports, and now he is working with the Los Angeles Dodgers to open new training centers. They focus on developing not just strong baseball players but great overall athletes.

As someone with deep ties to baseball, Garciaparra sees over-specialization as a problem particularly in baseball, noting the increase in injuries among young players. The rise in Tommy John surgeries among athletes between 15 and 19 years old is a major red flag, for example. Read More.....
