Encino Little League - Welcome to Spring 2023! Info & Updates

We are looking forward to kicking off another great Spring season with all of our ELL families. The Encino Little League Board has been hard at work making ELL as special as possible for your children and families. We have 800 kids playing ball this season and we are looking forward to getting back in action once this rain finally stops!

Our two Snack Stands (the small one behind the Minors back stop and the main snack stand behind the Majors back stop) will be open on game days, Monday - Thursday from 4:30-7:30pm and all day on Saturday from 8am-6pm including our famous grill). We will also have our fresh fruit stand back on Game Day Saturdays around the complex, too!

Through your generous donations, you will notice that we have been able to make many upgrades to our complex for the community.

New! Baseball Community Resource Available to ELL Families this Spring: Clint McGill's Baseball Notes, Bulletproof Hitter and Bulletproof Parent  
ELL is proud to offer two new online resources for the community: Bulletproof Hitter and Bulletproof Parent.    Bulletproof Hitter is a resource for kids, parents and coaches to help players of all ages and abilities deal with the emotional challenges of baseball and to give them the tools to accept mistakes and become more confident on the field. Bulletproof Parent is tailored specifically for parents, offering advice on how to effectively talk to our kids before and after a game to help with fear, anxiety and disappointment.    Both video series are available at

New! Coach Mentor Program  
This program pairs interested coaches with veteran coaches to help them navigate the ins and outs of a season, from practice planning to game day and everything in between. If you have any questions about this new program, please email Shane Morris [email protected]

Our Executive Board Role of Treasurer will be available at the end of this season as our amazing Caryn Wernecke will be “graduating” from ELL as her son Matthew is 12 and a “Lifer” this season.
