Scotts Major League Baseball® PITCH HIT & RUN™ is intended to give youngsters across the country an opportunity to participate in an exciting baseball/softball skills competition. This national initiative gives boys and girls, ages 7- 14, the chance to showcase their pitching, hitting, and running abilities. There are two separate divisions, baseball and softball. The baseball and softball age groups are 7/8 year olds, 9/10 year olds, 11/12 year olds, and 13/14 years old. Age for this competition is determined as of July 17, 2017. For more information, please visit the competition's web site at https://www.pitchhitrun.com/
Scotts Major League Baseball® PITCH HIT & RUN™ tests three of the most fundamental aspects of baseball/softball - pitching, hitting, and running. A brief summary of each competition is as follows:
PITCH: Participant is tested throwing strikes to a designated "Strike Zone" target. Any method of throwing is permitted.
HIT: Participant hits a ball off a batting tee for distance and accuracy.
RUN: Participant is timed, starting from second base, touching third then touching home plate.
All of the events are individually scored and converted to a total point score through the use of conversion tables. Participants will compete in each of the three components of Scotts Major League Baseball® PITCH HIT & RUN™ and accumulate a total score based on his/her performance.

BASEBALL PITCHING RULES / DAYS REST
Call Up Player Rules
Call up player policy of the Seaford Little League
If you are short a player for a game you need to call up a player from the lower division.
The purposes of calling players up are to AVOID forfeits. Calling players up for a strategic advantage is strictly prohibited! Directors should be emailed when a call up player is used. Coaches should attempt to call up different players each time they need a replacement player. DO NOT call the same player up every time. The Seaford Little League would like to see as many players as possible getting the opportunity to play up. Finally, call up players should be alternated into different positions every inning. We do not want to see a call up player as an example playing the shortstop position for 6 innings.
Any violations of these rules can lead to a forfeit and/or a manager/coach suspension

Important- New Baseball bats will be needed for the 2018 Little League 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.
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), Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), 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.
There will be no immediate change to youth baseball organizations' bat rules. All bats, currently accepted for the respective leagues, remain permissible through December 31, 2017. Each participating national member organization will incorporate the new standard into their rules for the 2018 season and will begin, with this announcement, to inform their membership of the USABat standard.

Coaches must maintain a positive behavior before, during, and after any Seaford Little League function.

Unsportsmanlike conduct is considered detrimental to the best interest of our league

If a spectator(s) are involved, they will be asked to leave the park immediately by any member of the Seaford Little League Board of Directors which is in attendance. If an individual refuses to leave, the game will be stopped and the local law enforcement will be called.
