Dear parents, guardians, and players,
As we continue to go through this difficult time, we hope that everyone is well and staying safe. We want to update you on the steps we are taking within Warminster Baseball & Softball Association in regards to the upcoming seasons. We are focused on ensuring both the health and safety of all of our participants and their families and are following the precautions of the local and state officials. We have discussed options of having a summer season for the in-house Quickball and younger baseball children if time and regulations allow. The travel teams are working individually with the organization and finding venues to play at that are in the green phase. Our softball teams will begin their season in mid-August and play into the fall, the director will be reaching out to our softball families. The older Penndel and Connie Mack baseball boys will be starting their season shortly as well.
I know that a few families have reached out for refunds based on different reasons. I am asking that everyone please fill out the attached questionaire that has been sent to your registration email, even if you did send an email already, to let us know how you would like to proceed with the upcoming seasons (Summer and Fall). We thank everyone for your patience in this difficult time.

Open Board Positions - Help Wanted
The Warminster Baseball and Softball Association is looking to fill vacant positions on the board for the upcoming season, click here to view the Open Positions. WBSA is a 100% volunteer based organization and we rely on the families and Warminster community to make this a wonderful experience for our children. As you can see from the list of Open Positions and when you attend baseball and softball events, we are in desperate need of Board Members and volunteers, such as helping with fields, uniforms, sponsors, equipment, social media/communication, etc.
Please contact a current board member about how you can help the WBSA organization.
UPDATE: USA Baseball, member organizations announce new youth bat performance testing program
Implementation of USA Bat Standard Begins on January 1, 2018.
USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the U.S., in conjunction with participating national member organizations (NMOs) announced 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.
The Cal Ripken Division of Babe Ruth League, Inc. have approved the use of the 2 5/8 inch barrel bats for local league play and tournament play beginning in January 2018 and coinciding with the new USA Bat standard.
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.
