Practice occurs usually twice per week and move to once per week during the season once games start. Practice schedules vary from team to team based on the requirements of the manager.


PALL provides a jersey, hat, socks, and a belt. Parents must provide pants, cup and baseball cleats.


Parents must provide ball glove and USA bat.


Teams usually consist of 12-14 players, a volunteer manager, two volunteer coaches, and a volunteer team parent. Other parents are encouraged to help at practices.

Teams are selected via a draft in early March after a player skills assessment clinic is conducted in February.


To have fun learning the basic fundamentals and game strategy of baseball.


PALL is an all volunteer organization. We need everyone’s help! Parents are expected to serve one shift of concession stand duty during the season.



Q: Do you keep score, and are there umpires?
A: Yes. Every manager maintains a scorebook. League standings are kept to determine a regular season winner and to determine playoff games. There is a home plate umpire and each manager from the previous game umpires at first and third.

Q: What size field do they play on and where is the field?
A: All games are played on a regulation Little League field with a grass infield and grass outfield. Bases are 60’ apart and the pitcher mound is 46’ from home plate.

Q: Can I have my child play on a team with their friends?
A: Not unless they are drafted on to that team. In this age group, player’s skills are evaluated in a skills assessment clinic. Then a draft is held. Selection order in the draft is based on the where the team finished in the previous season.

Q: Can I manage or coach a team?
A: Yes, if positions are available. Prospective managers must complete an application. If you would like to serve as a coach please note that on your child’s spring registration form. All managers and coaches must be approved by the Princess Anne Little League Board of Directors.

Q: How much will my child get to play?
A: To be fair to all players, our rules require that each child play in at least half of each game and start at least half of the games.

Q: What are the volunteer requirements?
A: PALL is an all volunteer organization so there are many ways to volunteer. Help is always needed with registration, team parenting, assisting with picture and opening day activities, helping with post-season tournaments, and working in the concession stand to name just a few of the many ways to help support PALL.

Q: Why a draft? Sounds pretty serious.
A: A draft is the best way to evenly spread the various skill level of players throughout the league. PALL holds a player skills assessment clinic. Each child is required to swing a bat and run to first base, field a ground ball and catch a fly ball. The player’s skills are assessed and the manager then decides what child he would like to draft in the various rounds of the draft.

Q: What is the difference between the Major League and the Minor League?
A: The Minor League serves the same purpose here at PALL as it does in Professional baseball. It provides a venue for the player that is still refining his baseball playing skills and may not quite be ready for the next level of play.
