Memorial Day Schedule Update

As of 12:30 PM May 27th, the schedules have been updated on the website for today and tomorrow.  Assuming the rain stops like they say it should, we're going to be ready to play this evening by 6 PM.  

 


Memorial Day Snack Bar Sign Up

For all the teams playing this weekend in the Memorial Day Tournament, below is the link to sign up for the required three hour shift during the tournament.  The three hour shift is per child and not per family, which is different from how the recreation season works.

Team Picture Ordering Miscommunication

I apologize for the below.  The night of the picture nights I mistakenly told several families that the team picture was 'free' to anyone who showed up and had their picture taken.  Turns out I misunderstood the instructions from the photo company in that you could order only the team picture if present.  The company has sent over the below instructions to order a team picture on line and the fee will remain the same as if it was ordered that night.  I will also put these instructions on the website.

Again, I apologize for the confusion that I caused because of misunderstanding the instructions.

Rich

they can go to our website:
Go to center box on right that says 
“To pay for photos after photo day” and type in code:
“LATE ORDER”
Fill in the appropriate order information.  (Please ensure that you put the league name, division and team)
Then scroll down to Package # 10 “TEAM PHOTO”
Add Item to cart
Then check out using any major credit card.
The team photo will be mailed to customers home.

What's Going On At NEBS

Fundraiser
Due to the lost week of baseball and softball this, we are extending the Cookie Dough and Cheesecake fundraiser until Wednesday May 23rd.  Please hand in your order forms WITH payment to your team manager or drop them off at the snack bar.  We are still aiming to have the orders back to everyone between June 9th and June 16th.

Make-up Games
The coordinators and VPs are working on rescheduling the week's worth of rainouts this weekend.  We anticipate having most of that worked out by the end of this weekend and posted to the website.

Email delay
The league has also notified out software provider that we are experiencing a delay when sending out these email blasts to those with yahoo.com email addresses.  We are not sure if there is a solution to this as it might have to do with a filter at Yahoo concerning distribution lists coming from a gmail.com address.

Baseball Clinics by Full Count
Full Count will be on complex to conduct clinics for baseball on Monday evening.  Cost is $10 per player and you can sign up using the below link.  The clinics will be run in two one hour sessions.  6:30-7:30 pm will be for T-ball, Farm and Rookies.  7:30 pm - 8:30 pm will be for Minor and Majors baseball.  Please arrive 15 minutes early for check in and payment.  If you sign your child up and cannot make it, please email Rich Petagna at rich@northed.com so that we can open the spot up to another player.

Bat Decertification - Easton Ghost X 30/20

As of Thursday, May 3, 2018, the Easton Ghost X 30/20 USABat has been decertified.

Effective immediately and until further notice, the bats below have been decertified by USA Baseball and are no longer approved for play in leagues that have adopted the USABat standard, including but not limited to American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Babe Ruth & Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth & Dixie Boys Baseball, Little League Baseball, NABF Baseball, and PONY Baseball.

USABat: Easton Ghost X 30/20
Model Number(s): YBB18GX10 30/20 (D: 2 5/8), LL18GHX 30/20 (D: 2 5/8)
Length: 30" (-10)

If any of these bats are used during competition, it should be considered an illegal and non-compliant bat, and subject to league rules concerning the use of illegal or unapproved bats. Coaches and team administrators are encouraged to check their team's bats and withhold these bats from play. League administrators should share this information with their umpires.

A full list of approved bats can be found at USABat.com. A list of decertified bats can be found at USABat.com/Decertified-Bats.

Customer Information: Any questions regarding returns, refunds or warranty claims for the Easton Ghost X 30/20 should be directed to Easton via email at ghostreturn@easton.com or at 1-844-531-7079.

Any questions regarding this decertification may be directed to USA Baseball at USABat@USABaseball.com.

2018 Baseball Bat Rule Change

We will be following these new standards next year which we have been discussing at the meetings and in our communications for the several months.  The new standards effectively make any bat used in the Rookie, Minors and Majors BASEBALL divisions (ages 7-12) for the 2017 season ILLEGAL for 2018.  Below is the information from USA Baseball regarding the reason for the change.  Please ensure that any bat purchased meets the new standard.

USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the U.S., in conjunction with participating national member organizations announced today the decision to adopt a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats. Informed by the research of leading scientists on the USA Baseball Bat Study Committee, and supported by its NMOs, -- including the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball, Little League Baseball and PONY Baseball -- USA Baseball has concluded that recent advancements in science, engineering, technology, and the materials available to fabricate non-wood bats, now allow the manufacturers to construct youth bats that can perform at a wood-like level through the entire range of lengths and weights of youth bats.

The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat), which will apply to bats that are classified below the NCAA and NFHS level of play, will be implemented on January 1, 2018, allowing the bat manufacturers sufficient time to bring these bats to the marketplace.

"USA Baseball is pleased, with the support of our participating national member organizations, to announce the USABat standard," said USA Baseball's executive director/CEO, Paul Seiler. "Beginning with the launch in 2018, we will take another step forward in making our game more uniform at the youth level and ensuring the long-term integrity of the game."

Similar to the NCAA and NFHS BBCOR standard, which helped to eliminate discrepancies with different length bats and thus provide a more direct measure of bat performance, the new USA Baseball bat standard will allow youth baseball organizations in the United States to reach their goal of establishing a wood-like standard, a standard that will provide for the long-term integrity of the game.

You can view further information at www.usabaseball.com.
