Team Managers: - Managers at all levels are critical to the overall success of MLL. Managers should have an extensive knowledge of Baseball/Softball and coaching experience. Managers need to have a good understanding of technical (Baseball/Softball) skills in order to run a well organized practice. They need to know the rules and how to manage a game. They must also have good communication skills with the players and parents. As important, Managers must be able to demonstrate and encourage good sportsmanship with the players, coaches, opposing managers and the umpires. Each Manager must be approved by the Board of Directors before each season.

At the Major League Baseball and Softball level, as well as Senior Softball, new coaches shall not be appointed or approved until after the completion of the draft.
