Montgomery Baseball Complex Shut Down! 

THIS SATURDAY OCTOBER 27! WE NEED YOUR HELP!

"...and now, the end is near..."

"...and so we face, the final curtain..."

Yes, the end of the baseball season is fast approaching, and soon it will be time to close down the McKnight Baseball Complex until next spring...and we could use a hand!  Every year we ask for volunteers to help us in tasks big and small - taking down nets, bringing is L-screens, shutting down the snack bar, etc. - and this year is no different. We can use a few ladders and folks with pick-up trucks. So please join us on the morning of Saturday, October 27, from 9:00 AM - 11:30AM.  We'll supply the coffee, donuts, a smile, and a firm handshake...if you will supply the hands.  It really doesn't take much - and many hands make light work!  We hope you will consider joining us!

Equipment Bag Return! 

Managers & Coaches: Please return all equipment bags to the McKnight Complex garage on Saturday, October 27 from 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM.  Thank you!!


 2018 USA BASEBALL BAT STANDARDS NOW AVAILABLE!

USABat Standard Baseball Bats


USA Baseball Logo

 

 

 

 

Starting in 2018, to be legal for play in Little League, Pony Baseball, Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth Baseball, AABC, AAU and Dixie Youth Baseball, your bat will need the USABat stamp on it.

 

Long story short, everyone who plays with the Montgomery Baseball League (league and tournament play) under the Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Baseball chartered organization and the other organizations mentioned above will need to buy a new bat starting in 2018. These bats will perform like wood bats. Baseballs will likely not be hit as far with these bats, BUT the larger diameter barrel on the baseball bats can and will make the baseball easier to hit for many players. See the chart below and please feel free to visit http://www.baberuthleague.org/ for more information.
