CLL Glossary

Commerce Little League has been providing youth baseball leagues in our area for over 60 years.  During that time, many terms have grown to be commonly used in our league.  Following is a glossary of these terms.  We hope this will be helpful to new families joining our league!

House Teams:  These are teams that are open to all youths fitting the age/location requirements of our league.  Everyone who signs up for a house team will be placed on a team.  All of our House teams compete against each other during our regular season and playoffs.  All of our House Team games are played at Maple Glen Fields.

Travel Teams: Players need to try out to make a travel team. Travel teams play at various locations throughout the area and many play on weekend tournaments. Southwest Oakland Warriors is an example of a travel team in our area. Information about the Warriors can be found here.

District tournament: Each year, there are Little League Baseball District Tournaments held in each state.  The winners of their district go on to play other district winners in regional districts.  The winners of each region go on to play against other regional winners for an opportunity to win the State Championship.  The winners of the Michigan State Championship go on to play other state champions from other midwest states.  The winner of the Midwest Championship would then go on to play in the little league world series against other regional champions.  Players on District teams must play in House Leagues.
Commerce Cobras:  The Cobras is the Commerce Little League tournament team that has been created to compete in District tournaments.  Our Cobras teams play in 5 or 6 tournaments to help our teams prepare for districts.  Our Cobras players also play in House Teams in our league. Information about the Cobras can be found here.
Southwest Oakland Warriors:  The Warriors are a travel team.  They play in the Kensington Valley Baseball and Softball Association (KVBSA).  In addition to playing approximately 18-20 league games during the spring and summer season, their teams participate in numerous local and regional tournaments sponsored by USSSA and local youth baseball organizations.  The Warriors practice at our Maple Glen fields.  They do not participate in District Tournaments and do not have players on our House Teams. Information about the Warriors can be found here.
Southwest Oakland Baseball Organization:  Commerce Little League, Commerce Cobras, and the Southwest Oakland Warriors make up the the Southwest Oakland Baseball Organization.
