Little League does allow stealing home, but you won't see it a lot at this level; remember, a runner can't leave until the ball reaches the batter or home plate. The runner would be trying to steal a base at which the defense already has the ball at. However, trying to advance on passed balls and wild pitches can happen a lot.

Little League doesn't provide for the 10th. defensive position. (Leagues can opt to bat the entire lineup, not just the defensive starters.)

Regarding rule books, you get 1 of each if you register & pay their Little League Umpire Registry fee, but their web site lacks a good way for ordering books otherwise.

Welcome to the wonderful world of LL umpiring!
