Concession Volunteer Information

In order for the Woodville Little League to continue to provide concession services, we need your help! The concession at our Woodville Ball Park is run solely by volunteers. Without YOU, we cannot run a successful concession stand!

We need your help!

Anyone can volunteer as long as they are at least 13 years old. Parents, grandparents, guardians, friends and other family members can volunteer. We would love to have you join us for one time slot or more! First time volunteers are given a quick overview of the stands offerings, pointers on food safety, instruction on money handling and then you are ready to begin. Closing the stand is quick and simple and there is always a concession committee member on site to help. Some of the available items for purchase include Pepsi products, Gatorade, water, hot dogs, hamburgers, mozzarella sticks, chips, popsicles, candy, snacks, boiled peanuts, nachos and more!

Since volunteers in the Woodville concession stand do not have to sign up as a volunteer with the county, signing up is as easy as choosing a time slot below.

We look forward to having you join us in the concession stand!

Book Keeper Information

Starting at the Minors-Machine Pitch level, teams are expected to maintain a book and keep score for all games. Team Managers will want to designate a parent to keep the team book for the season. The "Bookkeeper" should have a good understanding the league rules for the league in which they are scorekeeping. The "Bookkeeper" is not required to be registered with Little League and does note need a background check.

Pitch Counter Information

Starting at the Minor-Kid pitch level and up, teams are expected to maintain a pitch count for each game. The pitch count record is a simple tally of the number of pitches thrown in a game per player. The person keeping track of the pitches should have a basic understanding of the pitch count rules and be able to notify the Team Manager when the limit for the pitcher has been met. The "Pitch Counter" will need to keep the pitch counts for the home and away team. The pitch count records for each game will need to be signed by each Team Manager and placed in the Pitch Count log located in the concession stand. The "Pitch Counter" is not required to be registered with Little League and does note need a background check.

Team Manager App Keeper Information

Team Managers may decide to delegate a team parent to keep the book via an electronic App called Team Manager (Also known as Game Changer). This app will allow parents who are unable to attend a game to watch the game via a LIVE play by play on the App. It will also allow coaches to have immediate access to game stats in a one page format without coaches having to do any calculations.  It may be difficult for the same person to keep a paper book and also keep the book in the app, so it is recommended that this not be the same person as the "book keeper." This could be the same person as the Pitch Count keeper if the pitch count is simply noted at the end of an inning on paper - See Mike Stallings for details.

Please note, we will only post photos of children whose parents have agreed and attested during registration.
