Frequently Asked Questions
I don’t understand how the skills competitions work?
The skills competitions are held on Thursday, July 12 at South Lyon High School from 6-10pm.
There is no cost to participate. You do not have to be there at 6pm, come any time during the evening. This evening is open to all Junior League players, not just All-Stars.
We will have fastest around the bases, fastest pitch, home run derby and accuracy throwing competitions. There are prizes awarded to the top 3 finishers of each competition for each house division. There is no need to pre-register. Just show up and have fun. Full concessions will be available throughout the evening.
What time does my son/daughter play and what time should we arrive?
The full schedule of games is posted above. Please plan on arriving at least 1 hour prior to your game time. This allows for registration, photos and time for the league to honor your All-Star with announcements. This timeline is also for the Matt Douglas and Abby Dolan award winners.
What field do we play on? Which dugout?
When you register you’re player you will be provided all of this information in a packet.
This seems like a big event, who runs this?
Each year the 11u South Lyon Thunder boys travel baseball team runs the event. This is their main fundraiser for the annual 12u trip for a week long tournament in Cooperstown, NY. A full concession stand, 50/50 raffles, gift/raffle baskets, YOFresh Yogurt, face painting, balloon animals and bounce houses are all part of the fun. The face painting, balloon animals and bounce houses are free of charge!! This huge event is all volunteer based.
