INCLEMENT WEATHER NOTIFICATIONS & RAIN OUTS
ALWAYS assume your game is on unless your coach contacts you to tell you otherwise. Inclement weather announcements will be posted on our website and on our Facebook page at the earliest possible time. We always aim to make final decisions at least 90 mins prior to game time, but depending on the situation that is not always possible. The league will contact all coaches via email and/or text to notify them of any cancellations, delays, or postponements. Your coaches will then relay that information to you.

NEW BAT RULES IN 2018
With holiday shopping season fast approaching, we want the 21st Ward community to be up to speed on the new bat regulations that will be going into effect Jan 1, 2018. Cal Ripken & Babe Ruth Baseball will be adopting the new USA Bat standards. The new bats are designed to behave more like traditional wood bats. As discussed at the 11/15 General Body Meeting, as a Cal Ripken & Babe Ruth chartered league, it is our intent to adopt these new standards for our in-house program for the 2018 season for the AAA - Pony levels. If you want to see a list of the individual bats, sorted by bat manufacturer that are approved, visit www.usabat.com The key thing you are looking for is the USA bat stamp on the bat. Below are the new specifications for 2018.
