2016 SAFETY INITIATIVES IMPLEMENTED

In 2016, TVLL set out to accomplish three significant and vital safety initiatives to help better protect everyone associated with our league:

  1. Purchase Approved Volunteer Safety Pins
  2. Purchase an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to be used at the Sycamore Fields
  3. Conduct CPR and AED Training

Here are a few things you can do to further the initiatives:

  • Pick up and wear your Approved Volunteer Pins at all times on the playing field
  • Review the following about the AED:
  • The AED will be centrally located at field 5 in the score booth. That is the grass field located behind the snack shack where the major teams typically play. If the booth is not open, please use the code 2020 to access the key pad and proceed to open the booth. The device is in a yellow case and should be clearly visible and hanging in the score booth.
  • We will be placing air horns at each field in the score booth. If an emergency situation arises please use the air horn to alert folks that may be at field 5 or in close proximity to immediately locate and bring the AED to the field where the horn is being deployed. Continue using the air horn until you know someone has the AED device and is on the way. If you are at field 5 using the blow horn will obviously not be needed.
  • At the same time, someone at the location where the emergency situation is at should be sent running to field 5 to retrieve the device and someone should be calling 911 for help.
  • The AED device will have both adult and infant pads.




MOUNTAIN MIKE'S PIZZA DINE AND DONATE

OPT-OUT OF EMAILS

If you are no longer interested in receiving news and information from TVLL (e.g. moved out of area, player has aged out, player no longer wants to play), please login as a member and update your Parent/User Information by going to Parents/Users -> Parent/User Maintenance -> Update Parent/User Information and check the box next to "Email Opt-out".




RAIN HOTLINE

Call the Town of Danville to check the status of field closures: (925) 314-3484. The Town updates this line twice a day, when needed.

For the Synthetic Turf Fields located at Sycamore Park, families should always expect to arrive prior to game times as rarely are those fields ever closed due to rain, and games can still be conducted given the nature of the synthetic turf drainage. If conditions become unsafe for play to commence or continue, games will be discontinue or postponed, and such communications will come from the team managers.




Please view the information on our site. If you have any general questions, please email us at info@tvllbaseball.org
