RIP Dale Eubanks

It is with sadness to report that Dale Eubanks passed earlier this month. Dale was a decades-long supporter of our league. He happily sponsored a team dating back to the 1960s. The yellow and green uniforms of Eubanks Florist were proudly worn by many TCLL players over several decades.

At Twin Cities Little League, we do not forget friends like Dale. May he rest in peace

2021 Virtual Player Evaluations

In recognition of the pandemic and with player safety the priority, we are launching a new protocol for player evaluation. For league ages 8 and above, parents need to submit a video of their player doing specific skills. The league needs these videos so we can determine which division a player should be eligible for, based on safety and level of play, and create balanced teams for competitive divisions without in-person evaluations.

Optional Video Evaluation Sign-ups

To help with this season's video evaluations,  members of the TCLL BOD will be hosting two sessions this week to help shoot and submit videos. Sessions will be held Thursday the 14th and Saturday the 16th. This is not required and you have the option of shooting your video on your own.
