Player Development

April 24 Update:

1. In honor of Jackie Robinson day, please visit  There are some fun games, video clips, stories, crafts, and more for players of all ages.
2. Wall ball!... all you need is a wall and a ball (preferably a tennis ball!). Challenge your player to see how many they can do in a row!
3. Self-toss hitting drills.   Some of these drills require a tee, but there are also several that can be done solo.  One of the best hitting drills young players can do is simply to toss the ball up in the air and crank away!  Great for hand-eye coordination, timing, and will keep them busy gathering them up too!

Big Al:

In an effort to keep your players active and developing some skills, LGLL has partnered with for the ENTIRE league with access for parents as well.  Please follow the instructions below to sign in and utilize these great drills.
