Encinitas Little League alumni coaches pitch in for 60th season


As another way that Encinitas Little League is celebrating its 60th anniversary season, ELL has formed the Alumni Coaches Group to lend their baseball knowledge to the next generation of coaches and players in the league. The ELL Alumni Coaches have already conducted training for new coaches and will also be present at tryouts and free player clinics put on by the league.

ELL President Robert Wade said approximately 20 past coaches are already part of the group, with more expected to join. “These alumni coaches have literally coached well over 100 seasons and thousands of ELL players between them, so it is a perfect way to use their knowledge and connect the past 60 years to the present and future of Encinitas Little League,” said Wade.

ELL plans to continue to program for future seasons beyond the 60th given the very positive reception so far. The group is open to all former ELL managers and coaches who are ready to volunteer more of their time and who no longer have a player in the league.
