2017 Tournament Softball Information

 

 

Tournament team softball has turned into a very rewarding experience for the girls in the BP/DS program.  Since combining leagues, we’ve not only been competitive, we’ve advanced as far as the semi-finals, one step away from vying for the state championship.
 
In order to continue competing at this level, we need as much participation as possible. We will field at least three teams, one 12U (born 2004 or later), one 10U team (born 2006 or later), one 8U team (born 2008 or later).  If we get enough girls to participate, we could also field an 11U team (born 2005 or later) and possibly an additional 10U team. 

In preparation for the season, please mark your calendars for workouts and tournament dates.

Little League Baseball NEW Bat Standard For Spring 2018

 

Please note that as of January 1, 2018, Liitle League will adopt the new USA Baseball Bat Standard

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.

All bats, currently accepted for Little League remain permissible for use through December 31, 2017. 

Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball® will adhere to the new USABat standard and all bats must be marked with the USABat label in order to be used in Little League Baseball.  

All bats previously approved for use in Little League will NOT be permitted to be used in any Little League activities, including practices or games. 

Here is a useful link to USA Baseball Bat Standard - FAQ

As we currently know, the new approved bats with USA baseball stamp will not be out until Fall 2017.

For more information about the current standard and future standard, please see http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo.htm and/or USA Baseball Bat Standard 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR SOFTBALL!

The above applies to baseball only.  In softball, the bat only needs to meet the specifications of Rule 1.10 found here
