Denny Hockensmith, and Dave Grams - as they have for decades - are generously donating their time and expertise/experience to the benefit of the Leagues across the District on Little League Rules and Field Mechanics which are critical to facilitating the teaching of players and the adults, as well, the games of Baseball and Softball.  This Season they have greatly expanded the number of sessions and locations to assist the Leagues in providing convenient locations and multiple date/time options for the League Presidents, Board Members, Umpires, Managers/Coaches, Practice Assistants, and Parents.  These are great venues for discussions on the rules and the subtleties of those rules.  Consider using this as an option for meeting the Little League requirement for the training of the Managers and Coaches every three (3) years.  Consider specifically requesting/requiring your volunteer Managers/Coaches and others attend and learn.
