    Team Rosters Ready!
Thank you to everyone for your patience over the past two weeks as we finalized coaches and worked to draft teams for the 2014 season. All coaches now have their rosters and will be contacting players over the next few days. The fields are still VERY wet but many teams will be starting practices this week.

FIELD CLEAN UP...Sat, April 19 & Sat April 26 from 9am-3pm
We need help at the Canterbury Field where there are several big projects to complete before the start of the season, including installation of the scoreboard, bleachers and dugouts. The Dwinal field and Southwick will also need spring clean up work, so bring your rakes, wheelbarrows and lawn tools and give us a hand - it takes more than just a couple of people to get the baseball season started :)

Fundraising Calendars
If you attended the Ice Cream Social, you should have received your calendars, if not, please contact your coach or Vicki Ewens at to make arrangements to get them. We are asking each player to try and sell 10 calendars - they are $10 each and loaded with great prizes from cash to concert tickets, gift cards to ski passes. Anyone who purchases a calendar gets a free TNLL sticker.

OPENING DAY is Saturday May 3

The annual player parade will kick-off from Union Sanborn School and makes it way down Park Street to Dwinal Field. Once we have the players lined up, we will introduce each player and coaches for all the teams, raise the flags, and have the ceremonial First Pitch of the 2014 Season. Then it's time to "PLAY BALL" - each team will have a game scheduled throughout the day.

Volunteers Needed
TNLL is an all-volunteer organization, this season we have 256 kids playing on 21 different teams at four different levels. We need everyone to help make this a great season of baseball. Coaches, assistant coaches, team parents, field maintenance, snack shack workers, board members, and game announcers are all an important part of TNLL. Please consider volunteering!






Happy New Year from Tilton Northfield Little League!
Yes, it’s cold outside now, but TNLL is gearing up for warm weather and baseball season - just 115 days ‘til Opening Day!
