Rye Little League
Snack Shack


The Rye Little League Snack Shack is a fund raising venture for the Rye Little League.  Every family with a child playing in the Major League and AAA league is asked to take two shifts running the Snack Shack, while AA and T-ball are asked to volunteer for one shift.

If a game that you were scheduled to work the Snack Shack is postponed and rescheduled, you are responsible for working the shack on the rescheduled date or finding a replacement.

Snack Shack Useful Tips

  1. It is extremely helpful for both workers to arrive at least a half hour before the game starts, since the posted Opening Procedure takes time to get things ready and the hot dogs cooked.

  2. Do not open the window until you are ready for business, since once it is open, you will have customers.

  3. It is necessary to have both the opener and closer working together from the start to finish, since it does go faster with more hands.

  4. Make sure the hot dogs are ready for the start of the game.   Some players like to grab a hot dog before the game starts, in case they haven’t had enough time to eat, as the weeknight games are at 5:15.

  5. Make sure you keep the soda fridge filled with drinks, and put the new ones in the back.  People don’t want to buy warm ones.   It helps to keep the variety organized together.  If you have a row or two of everything in there you will be covered, and it is easier to rotate warm vs. cold when you have a few rows to move things around in.   However, an example is to not put a whole shelf of lemonade in there at a time, since it isn’t the most popular seller.

  6. When it is very busy, it is helpful to have some cooked hot dogs pre-wrapped in foil and kept in the warmer, so things move along faster.

  7. When it is really busy, it is helpful to have one person “manning” the counter to keep track of who has paid and who is next – and the other person “manning” the hot dog / pizza orders. 

  8. When the outside garbage cans are full, ask someone to help empty them in the dumpster.  They are heavy.    The Rye Rec uses them during the week for their camps too.   We don't want a bunch of garbage sitting around for our games.

  9. Please make sure that the correct size bag is used for the barrels.  It is much nicer to clean up when the bag doesn’t fall inside the barrel.

  10. It is also important to remember that garbage in the dugouts need emptying.   Each team is supposed to empty the garbage and sweep up the dugouts after each game.
