WELCOME TO LAFAYETTE LITTLE LEAGUE

Buckeye Field is a picturesque playing surface that is the pride of Lafayette Little League. However, what makes it truly special is the community it fosters. The league's volunteers - 25 board members, 50 managers, and 100 coaches - work tirelessly to teach children about integrity, resiliency, courage, determination, and teamwork.

Even the league's 700+ families contribute with volunteer jobs. Lafayette Little League is run 100% by volunteers. Umpires teach respect while overseeing games, and sponsors provide crucial financial support. The league is a community where parents and children forge new friendships while spending time together, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Lafayette Little League hopes that all families will cherish the special memories created during the baseball season and that the players of today will bring their own children back to Buckeye to play catch on the same dirt and grass where they played. The venue is not just about the game but about creating a foundation of character and values that children will need to succeed as young adults.

Major Pirates are 2023 LLL CHAMPS!!!

Both games on Saturday were highlighted by strong offense and tight defense. 

The day got started with the Majors game where the undefeated Pirates took on the Phillies. Teams showed power at the plate with Jake Mikalis of the Phillies and Patton Bittner of the Pirates hitting home runs.

In the AA game, there was just enough offense to push the A's ahead of the Padres late.  Pitchers for both teams worked out of bases loaded jams to see the championship game conclude on a strike out in the bottom of the 5th.

YANKEES ARE AAA CHAMPS!

In a tight duel on Sunday, the Yankees edged out the Nationals by a final score of 5-3 to win the LLL AAA Championships.

Congratulations to our 2023 All-Stars!

Come to Buckeye this summer during the District 4 Tournament June 28-July 9 to cheer on Lafayette's teams.

SUPPORT LAFAYETTE LITTLE LEAGUE FAMILY

Lafayette Little League sadly lost a strong supporter of its Challenger program with the recent passing of Challenger parent Diane Hong.  The mother of a current Challenger player, Diane's family has been involved with the program for several years. Diane always helped at practice with calm patience, a positive spirit, and a warm smile.  She will be greatly missed by the Challenger program and the entire Lafayette Little League Community.

Friends have established a GoFundMe account for the family's children,

President's Corner

Welcome to our 60th Season!

Lafayette Little League is proud to be celebrating its 60th season of youth baseball. Practices are scheduled to start Monday, 2/26 pending good weather and field playability.  Check status below where changed conditions are updated typically by 2PM.  
 

All teams have been formed and uniforms will arrive soon.  Contact the League if your family has not heard which team your players are on.

Managers, assistants, coaches and volunteers must register as a Coach through the Sportability link on this page AND complete a LiveScan specific to Lafayette Little League.  Having LiveScan through any other organization does not satisfy Little League’s requirements.

Coaches training will be this weekend: Instructional, Farm & Challenger 9-10:30; AA, AAA, Majors & AB 10:30-12, both at Buckeye.  We will also offer LiveScan services at the same time.  Equipment pickup is 9:30-1 at Burton Valley.

All teams have their guest games scheduled the weekend of 3/2.  Little League divisions will play at Buckey & Chaney fields on Jamboree weekend which is scheduled for March 23rd & 24th.  

We look forward to seeing everyone out on the fields soon!
