Parent Volunteers

Dunbar Little League is a parent-run organization and requires all parents to volunteer so that our kids can have the best baseball experience possible.

In addition to coaches, assistant coaches and team managers who handle every practice and game, parents  will be asked to sign up for the following jobs during the season:

  • Scorekeeping 
  • Field Preparation (before and after games)
  • Safety Coordinator
  • Snack duties (T-Ball only)

More information for how to perform the duties are listed below.

Scorekeeping

Scoring baseball games is an important task as it allows officials to “play back” any game events to ensure accurate scores, batting orders, pitch counts, etc. 

Scorekeeping starts in Minor B and although scorekeepers are not expected to include as much detail as in Minor A or Majors, it’s a good time for parents to learn how to scorekeep correctly where accuracy is vital.

Please view this two part video (25 minutes total) that provides all the details on how to scorekeep properly. After two or three games, we guarantee  that it will start to become second nature to you.
