Little League Field Review: Lincoln Glen Little League

Overall Review:

Lincoln Glen Little League has 4 fields. Their Majors field is a nice field. Their Minors field is the same size of the Majors field, but not as nice. The Farm field is a nice field for the younger kids. The T-ball field is small with no fence.

The snack shack at Lincoln Glen Little League has good food and the highest price is around $3-4. The other places where people can play is at one of the two basketball courts, which are nicely kept. There is a little kid playground and a big playground.

The park also has tennis courts which are also nicely kept and a place to workout. There is parking all around the park.

My overall rating is: 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Individual Field Reviews

Majors Field

Panoramic view of Lincoln Glen Little League Majors Field

The name of the Lincoln Glen Little League Majors field is Sam Jones Field. The Triple A teams and Majors teams play on the Majors field.

The infield is a diamond /square and is covered with grass and the outfield is a semi-circle. There is a nice scoreboard behind the left field fence.

The home team sits on the third base side and the visiting team sits on the first base side. The bullpen on the first base side is all dirt and is not tended to regularly. Behind home plate there is a maintenance shed where score keepers can sit to keep score on the score board.

Batting Cage

There is a nice batting cage/bullpen on the third base side near left field of the Majors field.

These are the batting cage rules:

I give this field 4 out 5 stars because the field is a nice field but is not always nicely kept.

Minors Field

The minors field hasn’t been dedicated to anyone so it doesn’t have a different name.

It is a full dirt infield. The dirt is red so when kids slide on the red dirt it is really hard to get out when you wash your uniform.

Just like the Majors field the infield is shaped like a diamond/square, and the outfield is shaped like a semicircle. There are some bad hops by second base. Just like the Majors field the home team sits on the third base side and the visiting team sits on the first base side.

Both bullpens are the same dirt bullpens exactly like the visitors bullpen at the Majors field. The Minors field is tended to as much as the Majors field which means that sometimes the grass is long.

I give this field a solid 4 out of 5 stars because the outfield grass, most of the time, is short and the infield is nice when it’s game time.

Snack Shack

The LGLL snack shack is a little building right next to the Majors field. Some of the foods that people get are popcorn, candy, Big League Chew, sunflower seeds, ice cream sandwiches, drumsticks, hot chocolate, and ICEES. Team parents can buy individual tickets to hand out after a game that kids can use to buy things at the snack shack.

Other Places To Play

Some other places to play are the two basketball courts, a little kid playground (for like 1-3 year old kids), a big kid playground, two tennis courts, and a small fitness area. The basketball courts and the tennis courts are really nice because the nets are in good shape. The ground on them is made of a really smooth material and won’t get really hurt if you fall on it. The big playground has tanbark on the ground and the small playground has sand on the ground.

Parking

There is a lot of parking in the around the park and in the neighborhoods near the fields .

  1. This is an extremely professional analysis. The author offers solid data, pictorial evidence, and recommendations for improvement. Thus, he appeals to players, parents, and people responsible for the fields. Very well done. FIVE STARS.

    1. Thank you for reading my blog. I hope you continue to enjoy what I write. My next blog will be about preseason hockey and the first couple of games.

  2. I say “HURRAY” to the detailed information in this write up about Lincoln Glen Little League fields and snack bar. Although I have never been there, this blog helps me to envision the space and imagine how fun it would be to visit during the hustle and bustle of the season. I definitely would grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy the game! This blog also takes me back to my own childhood when I kept score at the Pony Field at Harvey West Park in Santa Cruz. It is great to hear that the tradition of baseball remains dear to many with the smells of freshly cut grass, yummy popcorn, and the sounds of a ball snapping against the bat followed by cheering fans. Your blog entices me to visit Lincoln Glen and share in the fun! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us!

    1. Thank you for your comment. I hope you’ll come to watch a game next season. I’ll soon have some more posts that I hope you’ll like.

  3. No hot dogs at the snack shack?
    at least there’s big league chew.
    that stuff is ridiculous, modeled on chewing tobacco ..
    do any major league baseball players still chew tobacco?

    1. Thanks for the comment. There are hot dogs and burgers at the snack shack, I just didn’t add them to the post. And I believe that nobody in major league baseball still chews tobacco.

  4. The review of the Lincoln Glen fields was interesting and thorough. The pictures showed good examples so that even though I have not seen all of the fields, I understand the pros and cons of each one.
    m.w.
