Little League International is the governing body and has rules regarding age and residence eligibility, playing time, playing rules and safety. GLL is one of many local area Little Leagues and plays in Connecticut District 6. GLL administers youth baseball for our town and adopts local rules (where permissible) to make our league best fit our town's needs.
GLL is comprised of Board members who are elected to two year terms. The Board works throughout the year to make sure that the 350+ Granby kids have good fields, coaches, equipment, schedules, uniforms and umpires. The cost to run the league is paid almost entirely by League registration fees.
