MCLL Day

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017
9am - 5 pm
Ridge Road Park
21155 Frederick Road
Germantown, MD

MCLL Day is a celebration of our players and the community in which we play as a league. This is the day we recognize their play, growth, and the outstanding group of players that make up our league! Little League, which began in 1939, now has over 2.5 million children participating in all 50 states. Montgomery County Little League has almost 1,000 players this season!

Organized sports teach kids teamwork and self-esteem, and give some kids a lifelong passion. Baseball and softball, more than any other sport, allow the opportunity for even the weakest participants to be in a position to win a big game for their team. These are memories players and parents never forget!

Each team will have a certain number of representatives for the all-star games.  We ask that if any player can not attend MCLL Day that they let their Head Coach know BEFORE all-star players are chosen.  The remaining players are eligible to participate in the Player Skills Competitions. The Player Skills Competitions are meant for players that were not selected for the all-star games so that more players from each team can participate.  However this year we have a new wrinkle with our Skills Competitions that will make this a Lower County vs Upper County battle!

Skills Competition

There are three different skills competitions at each level:

  1. Home Run Derby – All participants Minors, Majors, Intermediate and Juniors will hit a live pitched ball (coaches will pitch from 1/2 distance behind an L screen); each player gets 1 minute to hit. Coach pitch will hit off a tee; players get 6 balls.
  2. Golden Arm - Player will throw 6 balls at a stationary target, accumulating points for each throw.
  3. Road Runner - Player will be timed as they run around the bases once.

This year the skills competitions will be Lower County Commissioners vs their Upper County counterpart with the Commissioner's Cup as the prize. All non-All Stars are invited and are eligible for the Skills Competition. Each division will be led by their respective commissioner (helped by coaches) and has 30 minutes in the outfield to determine a team of 12 participants in each event.  So 12 HR, 12 GA and 12 RR.  

Commissioners submit their list of 12 participants in each event.

The 12 from each division will square off head to head and win points for their division. The division with the most points after the 36 rounds wins the Commissioner's Cup!

In addition medals will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each event. The player that accumulates the most points, or fastest time, will be declared the winner. Medals will be presented at the conclusion of the Skills Competition.

All players not playing in an All-Star game are eligible for the Skills Competition. However in order to manage the HR Derby participants must be nominated by their team. Each team will send the following number of players to the competitions:

  • Coach Pitch - Lower County -  2 players per team
  • Coach Pitch - Upper County -  1 players per team
  • Minors - Lower County -  2 players per team
  • Minors - Upper County -  1 players per team
