Our umpires, public address persons, concession workers, field crews, scorekeepers, and coaches are all volunteers - so treat them with respect.    Pets are not allowed but service animals are always welcomed. Smoking is not allowed on Little League properties and good sportsmanship is encouraged by coaches, players, and fans.   Please remember, Little League Baseball is a tobacco, alcohol, and drug-free program for children. All parents should learn the rules of the game and the policies of the league. They will also be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials, and spectators at every game, practice, or other sporting events. Parents must refrain from using alcohol, tobacco or drugs at Little League events.     Parents and other fans will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; or refusing to shake hands, or using profane language or gestures. Remember, no scouts are in the crowd and no one will sign with the Reds, Pirates, or Yankees at Little League games.     Come out and enjoy baseball in the company of future stars in coming years at high school, college and maybe even professional baseball, all this week at West Virginia Little League District One's Les Ghiz Tournament.
