Pool Players

Pool Player Guidelines - 2024 Season

Players get injured, sick, and sometimes have conflicts that are unavoidable. We hate to cancel games! Fortunately, Little League encourages pool play which allows competitive divisions (AAA, Minors, Majors, and Juniors) to field enough players to prevent a forfeit.

This means players get additional opportunities to play for other teams where they might have friends and we avoid the disappointment of cancellations.

The lower divisions do not use pool players.

1. A pool player request is made by the manager or coach of the team directly to the Pool Player Administrator NO LESS THAN 48 HOURS before the game. Please email Narendra Rocherolle ([email protected]), the Pool Player Administrator.

2. The Pool Player Administrator will make the decision as to which player from the pool is selected to play on any given day.

3. Managers may not request specific players and should never reach out to players from other teams seeking pool players.

4. With 9 or fewer players available, Managers are required to make a Pool Player request. With 10 or more, no request should be made.

5. All requests are final.

6. Pool players are required to play 9 defensive outs and bat at least once.

7. Pool players may not pitch and must bat at the end of the batting order.

8. No more than three pool players may be requested for any one game.

9. Pool players must wear their own team’s uniforms.

10. Pool play helps MVLL run smoothly and provides a great opportunity for the player. If you are asked to be a pool player, the expectation is that you will accept.

11. Pool players may not play more innings than any rostered players present during a game.
