All the coaches, all the umps and all the folks who work the concession stand at the little league fields in Penfield have submitted to a background check.
It’s standard policy for little leagues across the state.
“To make sure they don’t show up on any sex offender registry or any other negative situation to make sure the kids are protected,” said Ken Liesegang, Little League district administrator.
“I would never feel comfortable letting my kids go out there and interact without knowing about their safety,” said Penfield parent Susan Berg.
The SUNY Youth Sports Institute says more and more youth sports organizations are following little league’s lead.
