A REMINDER REGARDING M.A.B.A.'s POLICY ON LIGHTNING SAFETY:

Whenever thunderstorms are in the area of any game or event, M.A.B.A. policy is to immediately GET THE PLAYERS, COACHES and FANS off the field and to safety.That means under cover, not running around a parking lot or anywhere near the field.We urge the use of an emergency weather app such as Weatherbug which has an alert setting indicating lightning in the area. Safety comes first at all times -- Have an enjoyable season but please use common sense on the field. No victory is worth jeopardizing the safety of any players or fans. 

 

Bat Update August 18, 2017 

The Board of Directors of the Mid-Atlantic Baseball Association have reviewed the new guidelines made by USA Baseball for age groups 13 and below for the spring 2018 season. The USA Baseball Press Release can be viewed at http://www/aabc.us/page/show/2282307-the-future-of-bats.

In an effort to obtain as much information as possible to evaluate the changes,we contacted representatives from several bat manufacturers as well as the leadership from many of the organizations that are adopting the new restrictions.

The purpose of the new guidelines is to standardize the performance of all bats in the younger age groups, much like the BBCOR standards that were instilled a few years ago in the older age groups. The new guidelines will make most bats in circulation today ineligible for play in any league or tournament that adopts the new standards beginning with the 2018 spring season.

Because these new guidelines are in no way related to safety issues, and because of the cost of many of these bats, M.A.B.A. will not adopt the new guidelines until the 2019 spring season. That way, bats that have already been purchased can be utilized for the upcoming 2018 season and parents will have an extra year to purchase a new bat within the new standards. To be clear, if this were a safety issue, M.A.B.A. would make the change immediately but given that it is not related to safety, we see no reason to eliminate the bats that are already in use requiring the purchase of new bats at this time.

All M.A.B.A. teams should note that many outside tournaments will require the new bats for participation in 2018. The bat restrictions should be considered when choosing which outside tournaments a team desires to participate in.

This action parallels many other national organizations including USSSA and Ripken Baseball.  We understand that these are very expensive bats and are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We never like to make rule or policy changes during the season but the safety of our players is, and will always be, our first priority and these bats have been determined (by DiMarini) to be dangerous.
