A note to all baseball families that will be playing with LHBSA in 2018.
As some of you might have heard, there are new baseball bat standards in place for the 2018 season. This new standard replicates wood bat performance with the goal of standardization across all levels of play. This is not a rule unique to Long Hill, rather something enacted by all major youth baseball associations including little league and Cal Ripken.
All current bats (other than wood) in use will not be eligible in the 2018 travel or rec seasons. All bats for next year will have to have a "USA Baseball" certification stamped on the bat. Do not buy used bats as they will most likely not have this stamp of certification. New bats from the manufacturers were made available on 9/1/2017. Make sure that the USA BAT logo is stamped on any bat you purchase.

President's Message on behalf of the Board of Directors
Welcome to the home of Long Hill Baseball and Softball Association (LHBSA). Long Hill Baseball & Softball is a non-profit organization established to provide youth baseball and softball programs for players within Long Hill Township. Our league is 100% driven by volunteer families and generously supported by our local township government and business sponsors.
The mission of our board of directors is to ensure every child within our community has the opportunity to play baseball and softball in a fun and safe environment that promotes the values of community, working hard, teamwork, respect and sportsmanship. In addition to these core values, having our players learn how to compete is important but above anything else it truly is “how you play the game”.
Our programs start at the Pre-K level and run up until our players move onto their high-school years. To support our players varying skill levels we offer a recreation league in the spring and travel leagues in the spring, summer and fall. Our board continually stays up-to-date on what our neighboring towns, the high school and other development programs are doing to ensure we provide the appropriate resources, training and development to support all of our players and coaches regardless of their level of play. Lastly, we encourage our players to be well rounded and participate in other sports/activities that will help them build the foundation and teach them the skills they will need to be successful in whatever they choose to do in life.
Our board welcomes all feedback, suggestions and comments to help us provide the best experience for our players. We are proud parents like you and want the best for our children, your children and our township. We love the game and look forward to seeing you at the ballpark!
