What team is my kid on? Who's the coach? When are the games?
Teams are formed and schedule dates are available for the Major division, but for all other divisions (AAA, AA, A and T-ball), schedules and coaching assignments are currently being finalized. If you have registered, you are all set! You will hear from your coach and have your team assignment soon. Why isn't this info known now? The number of teams is dependent on the number of registered players and the number of coaches needed is dependent on the number of teams. Once we know the number of teams, we can finish the schedule. Every year this all comes together about three weeks before opening day as we reach capacity. So look for this info to start coming out the week of March 26! In the mean time, think about volunteering. We are an all-volunteer organization and always could use the help, from coaching to administrative tasks, your time and commitment would be welcomed! E-mail volunteer@ParkwayLittleLeague.org for more info.

New bat standard in place for 2018
Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard has been implemented in Little League. Bats that were approved for use for the 2017 season are no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity this season. 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 and definition of terms. The key is that all bats must have a USA Baseball sticker to be approved.
Parkway Little League loses great friend & volunteer
Steve Mullen, longtime Parkway Little League coach and volunteer, passed away on Oct. 4 at the age of 49. The epitome of a family man, Steve loved baseball and guided his three sons (Cormac, Nolan and Declan) through the Parkway program. He will be greatly missed and all of our thoughts at Parkway Little League are with Steve's family at this difficult time.
Contributions in Steve’s memory may be made to the American Lung Association, 1661 Worcester Rd. #301, Framingham, MA 01701, www.lung.org.

Brayden Gero story goes viral
An amazing story of sportsmanship played out at Parkway Little League's Praught Field last season, and it went viral. Brayden Gero, a 12-year old Little Leaguer with Down Syndrome, lived out his dream, recording the final out and a save in his last Little League game. Now the video has been viewed almost a half million times and the story has been featured by major media outlets. Congratulations to everyone who made this incredible moment possible, including the A's coaches (led by manager Tim Quinn), the Phillies coaches (led by manager Ross Birch) and batter Chris Thompson.
