Challenger League: Vineland Rotary

Vineland Rotary Club together with the North Vineland Little League is looking for eligible players and coaches to participate in the Challenger Division of Little League for the 2012 spring season. Established by Little League baseball in 1989, the challenger program enables physically and mentally challenged boys and girls ages 5 through 18 to enjoy the game of baseball with children the same age or ability. Games will be held at The Rotary Center, a handicapped accessible facility, located at Cunningham Park, West Avenue & Wheat Road, consists of handicapped accessible restrooms and locker rooms, a meeting room, kitchen and concession stand area, restrooms and storage space. Teams are set up according to abilities, rather than age and can include as many as 15-20 players who can participate in one of three levels: Tee-Ball, Coach-Pitch or Player-Pitch. Each player gets a chance at bat. The side is retired when the offense has batted through the roster, when a predetermined number of runs have been scored, or when three outs are recorded. Little League recommends that no score be kept during games. The Challenger players wear the same uniforms and safety equipment as other Little League players.
 
The Challenger League will be available to all mentally and physically challenged youth in Cumberland, Gloucester, Salem & Atlantic County. Player Registrations Are Free and Accepted Year-Round.

Little League Bat Information and Official Rule

October 25, 2017

Little League® International has assembled an online resource page dedicated to baseball bat information, that includes the latest bat information, current Little League Baseball rules and regulations governing bats, definition of terms, the moratorium on the use of composite bats, and a series of frequently asked questions, with answers and licensed bat lists.

Please note that 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.

 

LITTLE LEAGUE® TO ADOPT NEW USA BASEBALL BAT STANDARD STARTING WITH 2018 SEASON

With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved. Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.
