Welcome everyone to the 2018 Warminster Baseball and Softball season!
We look forward to seeing you and your family at the field. Many of you have already started practice and the rest will be starting shortly. We want to try to give you as many updates as possible and will send out more throughout the season.
Opening Day for the In-house and Travel season for baseball and softball is Saturday, April 21st at 10am. We ask that you have your children arrive at 9:40 so that we can get them into their groups. This year we will be having our presentation at the fields behind Willow Dale Elementary School at 720 N Norristown Road. Please park in the lots around Willow Dale And Log College. We can only provide disabled parking in the back of the school. Please remember there is no parking on the grass by participants/coaches.
Uniforms for the in-house baseball will be given to the coaches this week for distribution to your child. They will be given their uniform shirt and hat. You will need to provide grey pants, boy's protective cup, socks, and baseball glove for your child. The recommended gear is a heart guard, helmet, and bat.
Uniforms for the softball have already been distributed. Your softball girl will need black pants for their uniform. A infield face mask, non-metal cleats, and bat (non-composite bat for ages 8U and 10U, composite bat acceptable for 12U and 18U) are recommended. A helmet with face mask is required.
On Sunday, April 29th, we will have our Picture Day for all players. A schedule will be given to your coach a few days before the event in regards to time and meeting location. Unfortunately, the schedule cannot come out sooner due to certain teams having games/make-up games. We do apologize for this inconvenience.
This year our snack stand will be open on Saturdays at the Willow Dale/Log College fields and at special events. Our schedule of tentative events are All-Star Day, Movie Night, Friday Night Under the Lights (Werner Field), and tournaments. All parents may volunteer to work at the snack stand, click here to signup for a shift at the snack stand.
Check this site for information. We will be making changes to it in hopes to make it more user friendly. You will be able to find important information there, especially field closings. We cannot always get an email out right away but we can update the website quickly. Game cancellations, will be posted no later than one hour before the scheduled game time.
We are looking forward to a great season and we couldn't do it without you and your child/children. Thank you so much for being a part of Warminster Baseball and Softball Association.
UPDATE: USA Baseball, member organizations announce new youth bat performance testing program
Implementation of USA Bat Standard Begins on January 1, 2018.
USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the U.S., in conjunction with participating national member organizations (NMOs) announced 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.
The Cal Ripken Division of Babe Ruth League, Inc. have approved the use of the 2 5/8 inch barrel bats for local league play and tournament play beginning in January 2018 and coinciding with the new USA Bat standard.
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.
