IMPORTANT** New Little League Bat Regulations:

For the safety of players, Little League has adopted new bat regulations.

 


IMPORTANT - Little League Bat Changes

With Fall Ball getting ready to start up, you may be considering purchasing a new bat.  If this is the case, it would be best to wait for a little bit longer.  Little League Baseball along with some other baseball organizations are adopting the USA baseball bat standard.  Starting on January 1, 2018, all bats used in Little League Baseball will need to meet the new standards and have the USA Baseball label.  Only new bats, that are supposed to start hitting stores this fall, will meet this new requirement.  Unfortunately, Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. 

The link below has a video and additional information regarding the new standards and also explains how Tee Ball bats can still be used in Tee Ball divisions, as long as they are labeled Tee Ball and you add the required USA Baseball Sticker.

Play may resume if lightning has not been seen for 30 minutes, thunder has not been heard for 30 minutes, and the Little League Weather Bug App (Spark) does NOT show lightning within a 10 mile radius within the last 30 minutes.  Remember, If you hear it, clear it!"
 
We will do our best to update the website, the weather hotline, and communicate to commissioners and coaches, but we ask everyone to monitor for the safety our players and families.
 
Games for MP8, Minors, Majors, and Pony may be delayed but we will make every effort to start games as close to their original starting time as possible.
