Just a couple reminders as our season continues to move ahead:
1. No dogs at any of the fields (practices, games, etc.). This is a township rule and we must enforce it. We apologize for the inconvenience, but anyone with a dog seen in attendance at any of our events will be asked to leave. This restriction excludes working dogs authorized for service.
2. The only persons permitted in any dugout or on the field are those who are registered volunteers. At no time should any sibling, parent, friend, or other relative who is not a registered and rostered volunteer be entering the playing field or dugout area. Our coaches and managers will be reminding anyone who is openly violating this policy.
We understand that some of these restrictions are inconvenient or that violations of either of them may be done unintentionally and consideration will be given when an accident/mistake occurs, however we ask that you please respect these requirements as they are issued to us by the township and Little League International as conditions of our safety and liability insurance and league charter.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation - we look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events.
As of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.
The bat must be a baseball bat which meets the USA Baseball Bat standard (USABat) as adopted by Little League. It shall be a smooth, rounded stick, and made of wood or of material and color tested and proved acceptable to the USA Baseball Bat standard (USABat).
Starting on January 1, 2018, all Tee Ball bats in the Little League Baseball® Tee Ball program must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying text. Tee Ball bats that were produced and/or purchased prior to the implementation of the new standard can be certified using an Approved Tee Ball Sticker (available September 1, 2017) via the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program for use with approved Tee Ball baseballs for Little League play. Tee Ball bats for Little League Softball® Tee Ball programs must follow the Little League Softball Official Regulations, Playing Rules, and Policies.
Please visit www.littleleague.org for all rule, equipment, and other Little League Baseball information.
Note to parents: all of baseball is moving to the new bat requirements. Based on the obvious demand, many suppliers are out of stock already on several models. To ensure your child is properly equipped for the coming season, purchasing a bat early is encouraged. Additionally, proper fitting and measuring, done by independent sport shops who have trained personnel, is encouraged. Please be warned that many online retailers and resale websites (like eBay or others) have been selling counterfeit bats for premium prices. If you have any questions about the rule change on bats, please feel free to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We run on volunteer power! Planning to lend a hand or attend an upcoming meeting?
Volunteer Registration: No matter if you plan to coach, be a team parent, a booster, or serve on the board, all volunteers are required to register. Please complete online registration before actively participating in any league event as a volunteer (this is an annual requirement).
