Fall Ball 2016
We are unable to offer fall baseball this year, we apologize for not offering this program and will revisit to establishing the program next year with the help of additional volunteers. We currently have open board positions that would facilitate in offering more opportunities for the boys and girls of the township.
Instead, we will be organizing two "sand lot, just for fun games" if we get a big enough response. The dates and age ranges will be as follows:
Games to be played at Log & Willow Dale fields 10am to 12pm
The games will be played on the most requested 2 of these 3 dates: Oct 23, Oct 30, Nov 6
Ages 7 to 10 will play together
Ages 11 to 12 will play together
Ages 5 & 6 will play together
If your child is interested in playing, please follow the sign up link below to choose your two preferred dates and let us know how many kids and their ages.
We are thinking the 5-6 year olds could do some practice first, then a game.
There will not be any fees, the only thing we ask is to make sure everyone has fun!!! Parents are more than welcome to help out in any way. The older kids will need coaches, base coaches, dugout coaches and an umpire. Any suggestions are also welcome.
Contact Coach Kevin firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We hope to see a great turnout.

USA Baseball, member organizations announce new youth bat performance testing program
DURHAM, N.C. -- 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.
