HOW TO ENJOY A LITTLE LEAGUE GAME 

To enjoy a Little League game at its best, bring a comfortable chair, cushion, or blanket to make the stands more comfortable, your wallet to support the concession stand, team spirit, enthusiasm, comfortable clothes, and the soft voice of encouragement for youngsters who are trying their best. Managers and coaches give hours and hours of time and also do their best-not only for the individual player but for the team as well. Umpires, too, are human. They will make mistakes on occasion, but remember they are doing their best. Don't be quick to find fault in the work of others unless or until you have walked in their shoes. It is easy to be on the outside looking in, you really don't know how much an unkind word or action can hurt a player, an adult volunteer, or the team.

Remembering at all times that these players are children and are trying to do their best, please leave any trace of obnoxious behavior or personality at home. Youth sports have been criticized for years and many of the reasons have centered on "overzealous" parents. Don't have anyone label YOU as one. If a problem arises on the field, let your manager handle it. If you find it necessary to discuss a problem with the coach, do so in private or over the phone.

PLEASE DO NOT BRING:
* Alcoholic beverages (we will ask you to leave the field area)
* Dogs (not even on a leash)
* Skateboards/bikes
* Any other item that might pose a danger to other fans or players
* Tobacco products of any kind

NO SMOKING IS ALLOWED AT OR ON LITTLE LEAGUE FIELDS
