Del Mar Little League volunteer social

One of the 82 DMLL teams consisting of a volunteer manager, two coaches, a sponsor and two team parents.

The annual Del Mar Little League volunteer social was held at Arterra Restaurant in the Carmel Valley Marriott on June 8. More than 100 volunteers were in attendance including team sponsors, coaches and board members. There were 82 teams this year, ranging from T-ball level to Juniors, with over 900 players and 600 volunteers.

This is Larry Jackel’s second year as DMLL board president. He expressed his gratitude to the volunteers by saying, “This has been an incredibly rewarding experience and it is such a pleasure to work the board members and numerous volunteers. I saw great changes this season that benefitted both our kids as well as the community.” Larry will become board vice president next year.

Besides the numerous team managers and coaches, there were also former athletes who volunteered their time and visited weekly games to inspire the young players. Among them was local San Diegan past minor league player Jared Eichelberger who played with the Chicago Cubs. He shared some of his winning league strategies with DMLL baseball players.

One of the great accomplishments of the DMLL this year is being honored with hosting the District 31 Majors All Star Tournament this summer. It will be the first time in over 20 years of the leagues’ 50-year history that it is held locally. It paves the way to the Little League World series held in Williamsport, Pennsylvania during late August this year.

The tournament will be held at Sage Canyon Park this summer July 2 through July 10. More than 100 volunteers will be needed during the nine-day event. Those interested can visit the website for more information.
