Spring Season Postponed Due to Covid 19

Please be patient as we wait and see the outcome of this most recent turn of events. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to attempt to save the season. Please continue to check back here and our facebook page for updates. Thank You for understanding!

 

Update March 30, 2020:  Due to the mandate by the state governor for stay-in-place order, the National state of emergency, and a Liberty Borough Council local level decree, we are prohibited from congregating as a group. As part of this the ball fields in Liberty and Lincoln Boroughs are closed to organized sports until the stay in place order by the governor is lifted and it is deemed safe to be in groups. As far as the season is concerned, we are in discussions and planning with leagues and other athletic associations based on the outcome of the Covid 19 situation. Thank You for your understanding and please continue to check here for updates.

"New Baseball Bat Requirement for 2018"

East Suburban baseball league "ESBL" which LBAA participates in has adopted the Little League bat stamp requirement for 2018. This new rule requires that bats used in game play have the new "USA Baseball" stamp printed on the bat. Bats not having this stamp are not permitted for use in game play. For Pony and Colt age, players are permitted to use BBCOR bats approved for high school use.


Attention: Please Read!

Any PERSON having contact with players is now REQUIRED by STATE LAW to have completed; 1) State police criminal history background check. 2) Child abuse background check. 3) The keep kids safe disclosure form printed and completed. The cost of these are free. The three forms are required for managers, assistant coaches, score keepers, team moms, and anyone that's involved with field and dugout activities and must be readily available for inspection upon request during all LBAA activities. To complete these clearances please go to ASA website and follow web-links at www.paasa.org and use volunteer applications. For more information on clearances and laws please go to www.keepkidssafe.pa.gov/ or use our link.  If you plan to be involved in some capacity with your child's team, please complete the three requirements and submitt two copies of each to LBAA to have on file. For softball additional steps are needed with MYGSL, please contact LBAA board member or team manager for additional instructions. Currently our link for clearances to PA state police website is having difficulties. LBAA will accept clearances from other organizations provided they are current through October 2018 and all three steps are complete. Please read disclosure form to make sure you meet the requirements you are signing for. At Liberty Borough Athletic Association child safety is very important to us.
