PITCH, HIT & RUN COMPETITION!! SNLL will host a local Pitch, Hit and Run competition on April 27th on Trails #2  

SNLL to host PITCH, HIT & RUN competition at Trails Fields on Monday, April 27th

Summerlin North Little League will host a FREE Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run competition on Monday, April 27th from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Trails baseball fields.


Pitch, Hit & Run is the Official Skills Competition of Major League Baseball. This grassroots program is designed to provide youngsters with an opportunity to compete - free of charge - in a competition that recognizes individual excellence in core baseball/softball skills. Competitors are divided into four age divisions: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14, and have the chance to advance through four levels of competition, including Team Championships at Major League ballparks and the National Finals at the 2015 MLB All-Star Game.

The individual Pitching, Hitting and Running Champions, along with the All-Around Champion in each age group at the Local Competition will be awarded and advance to the Sectional Level of Competition. All participants must bring a copy of their birth certificate and fill out a registration form prior to the start of the competition.

You don't have to live in the Summerlin North Little League boundaries to compete in this event.

Major League Baseball PITCH, HIT & RUN provides youngsters across the country an opportunity to participate in an exciting baseball/softball skills competition. This national initiative gives boys and girls, ages 7-14, the chance to showcase their pitching, hitting and running abilities. Boys and girls compete separately at all levels of competition. PITCH, HIT & RUN is intended to encourage youth participation and emphasize the "FUN" element of baseball/softball. Since there is NO registration fee, everyone has the opportunity to participate.

Participant is tested throwing strikes to a designated "Strike Zone" target.

Participant hits a ball off a stationary tee for distance and accuracy.

Participant is timed, starting from second base, touching third and then touching home plate.

All of the events are individually scored and converted to a total point score through the use of conversion tables. Participants will compete in each of the three components of PITCH, HIT & RUN and accumulate a total score based on his/her performance.

PITCH, HIT & RUN has four levels of competition: Local, Sectional, Team Championship and National Finals.

The first level is of a LOCAL scope. Everyone must participate in a local competition in order to advance to the higher levels. Champions at the local level advance to a SECTIONAL Competition. At this level, the Sectional All-Around Champions become eligible to advance to the TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS, which are held during June in all 30 Major League Baseball markets. The culmination occurs at the NATIONAL FINALS, held at the 2015 MLB All-Star Game.

Each youngster must first participate at a local competition. The first place All-Around, Pitching, Hitting and Running Champions in each age group and gender advance to the Sectional competition. The Sectional competition is scheduled for May at the West Flamingo Park, located at 6255 W. Flamingo Road.

At the Sectional competition, the youngster must be a first place All-Around Champion in his/her age/gender group in order to qualify to advance to the Team Championship. The Sectional All-Around Champions' scores are compared with the other Sectional Champions' scores in that respective MLB team market. The top three participants in each age group and gender group advance to the Team Championship. The Sectional champion does not automatically advance to the Team Championship.

After the Team Championships, the All-Around champions in each age and gender group are ranked nationally by total score. The champions' scores from all 30 team markets are compared and the top scorers in each age group and gender nationwide advance to the National Finals at the 2015 MLB All Star Game.

In an effort to accommodate for Little Leaguers to play with their classmates, and ease the burden on parents and guardians, Little League has amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries where they attend school is located. To verify enrollment, parents will need to bring an official school document, such as a report card or school enrollment form, confirming enrollment in the school for the current academic year, dated before October 1, 2014.

"Little League is always looking for more ways to give all children the opportunity to have the best Little League experience possible," said Patrick Wilson, Little League Senior Vice President of Operations and Program Development. "This new rule will provide more flexibility for families to participate in the leagues that best fits their children."

If your child attends any of the following schools in SNLL boundaries, he/she can play in SNLL without any special waiver and will be eligible for All Star consideration:

William Lummis Elementary School
Ethel Staton Elementary School
John W. Bonner Elementary School
Richard Bryan Elementary School

Ernest Becker Middle School
Sig Rogich Middle School

Palo Verde High School

Adelson Educational Campus
L’il Scholar
The Meadows School
Shenker Academy

The Summerlin North Little League 50/70 All Star Team will battle the Carson City Little League All Stars in a best-of-three series July 12-14 in Carson City, Nevada to determine the 50/70 Division state champion.  Carson City Little League, the defending 50/70 Division state champion, defeated Sparks Centennial Little League for the District 2 Championship late last month.  Summerlin North Little League defeated Red Rock Little League for the District 4 Championship and will be SNLL's only team competing for a state title this year in Carson City.

"This is real baseball," spectators often observe when they watch 50/70 games in action.  Lead offs, pick off moves, a larger field allowing for more strategic game play... these all combine to produce an exciting, often high-scoring brand of baseball that rewards good fundamentals and powerful bats.  SNLL players range from League Age 11 to League Age 13.

The SNLL Pirates - from which the SNLL 50/70 All-Stars were selected - went 13-1-1 in regular season play, piling up 186 runs and allowing just 59.  The team hit .389 for the season and thumped 28 extra base hits.  As a team, the Pirates stole 97 bases and were caught stealing only 3 times.

The SNLL 50/70 All Stars competed in an epic nine-inning, four hour battle with the Red Rock All Star Team in the first game of the District 4 50/70 Division tournament, ultimately winning 14-13 in a game that will long be known as “The Night the Lights Went Out in Summerlin” after a dramatic power outage in extra innings temporarily halted play. The SNLL All Stars went on to pitch a combined no-hitter to defeat the Western All Stars 17-1 in the second game of the playoffs.  The team ultimately won the District 4 Championship Game 26-14 in a rematch with the Red Rock All Star Team, in a back-and-forth game that featured six lead changes and a remarkable 15-run fifth inning that broke the game wide open for SNLL.

The winner of the 50/70 Division state championship won't have any time to rest on their laurels.  Just three days after the end of the state tournament, the Little League World Series West Regional Tournament gets underway in Nogales, Arizona.  Ten teams from the western states - from as far away as Hawaii and Washington - will convene in Nogales for four pool play games, followed by a single elimination playoff.  The West Regional Champion then heads to Livermore, California for the Little League 50/70 World Series in early August.

Good luck to Reece Ashcraft, Brandon Ashe, Nick Brahms, Will Byerman, Eli Duncan, Jacob Gutierrez, Jackson Hall, Derek Krohn, Lucas Laurita, Dominik Riezler and Shane Taylor, as well as manager Russell Taylor and coaches Robert Ashcraft, David Byerman, and John Laurita.  A great group of ballplayers whose hard work and determination have made Summerlin North Little League proud!




Summerlin North Little League Red Sox win Minor Division Tournament of Champions

Congratulations to the AAA Red Sox Champions of the District Four Tournament of Champions and first-ever TOC banner for Summerlin North Little League. 

After securing both the regular season and SNLL tournament championship, the team had momentum riding on its side.  In the first game of tournament, the team drew the Lone Mountain Giants. From the start, it was a pitchers dual.  However, in the end, the Red Sox prevailed and took Game #1 4-3. 

Game #2 the Sox had their work cut out for them having to face the first-place Braves from district powerhouse Mountain Ridge.  After multiple lead changes and an exciting game, the team made some key defensive plays to end the game with an 8-7 victory.  The team would face inter-league partner the Western Mudhens in the semi-final game.

Against the Hens, Jackson Tanko took the mound, never left and completed the game.  Tanko had four strikeouts, gave up only two runs and three hits.  The offense was lead by Shea Keyes with a two hit, four RBI game.  The Red Sox cruised to a 12-2 victory while earning a spot in the championship game.

The championship was a picture perfect setting as the Red Sox faced the Western Stars.  Earlier in the season, the Stars gave the Red Sox their only loss, so it was fitting that these two teams would face each other in this game.  After the Red Sox took an early 5-0 lead, the Stars put together several strong innings to get back into the game.  The teams found themselves in a 8-8 tie.  During the top of the fourth, Red Sox pitcher Shea Keyes was struck by a ball and had to leave the game.  Thankfully, he's doing well.  In relief of his fallen teammate, Chris Frankot came in and closed out the inning with no runs.  In honor of Shea, the team put together a championship inning; scoring five to secure the championship.  The team had season high 18 hits for the game.  Andrew Ayson lead the team with two hits and four RBIs. 

The Red Sox end the season with a 25-1 record, SNLL regular / tournament winners and champions of District 4. 

Team: Andrew Ayson, Alex Minkoff, Paisley Nickelson, Brantley Lytle, Shea Keyes, Davis Whetten, Jackson Tanko, Chris Frankot, Corey Burkhead, Bryson Mariano, Jacob Hanratty, Davis Whetten.  The Manager is Joe Ayson.  Coaches are Bob Keyes, Sean Tanko, Kevin Hanratty, Josh Whetten, Ken Lytle. 

Thanks to our sponsors: the Hanratty Law Group, Turf Sporting Goods, Coach Manny Abeyta, Caroline Byerman and Summerlin North Little League for their support this season.
