Verification Night is Wed, Jan 16
If you can believe it, baseball season is right around the corner and we have a lot of information to get out to you about the upcoming season. So let’s get at it! Here is the first (of hopefully not too many) email to get you started.
Verification Night is mandated by Little League for two primary reasons:
- Verify the age of your child. Little League Age is determined by consulting the chart at http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/age-chart-baseball.pdf
- Verify that your child either lives or goes to school within our boundaries. Our boundary map is defined here http://www.wgll.org/organizations/1434/pages/62860.
- Verification Night will be held on Wednesday, January 16 between 6:45 PM – 8:45 PM. You do not need to be there the entire time. This is an open house drop-in. Once you have provided the necessary documents to verify age and residency, you’re free to leave.
- Pro Tip: the line is usually longest between 7 PM and 8 PM. Come a little later to save time in the line.

WHAT TO BRING
- Please refer to the verification page on our website. You can get all the details on proper forms of identification for new and returning players here http://www.wgll.org/organizations/1434/pages/62857
- Note that the requirements are different for new and returning players. New players to WGLL must bring a certified birth certificate, returning players do not.
- Documents to verify residency must be dated between February 1, 2018 and February 1, 2019.
- Please bring a check for $200 made out to WGLL to cover your volunteer hours. At the end of the season, once your team parent verifies that you have completed your 4 hr requirement, this check will be returned to you. For more information regarding our volunteer program, please consult the Volunteer menu at the top of our web site.
- Completed 2019 Little League Volunteer Background Application (ONLY required for all managers, coaches, and team parents). See this page: http://www.wgll.org/organizations/1434/pages/130434
