Little League Bat Moratorium - In place after 2017 season.
Little League has adopted new bat standards for the 2018 season. For those planning on buying a bat in the next year or so, this could have an impact on your decision. Any bats not meeting the new standard will not be allowed after the 2017 season. The new bats are not yet being produced. See the info below from Little League, and you can click on the link at the end for more information.
With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved. Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.

Please, No Cemetery Parking @ Center Field
Regarding Parking Regulations at Center Field
The Cemetery Commissioners voted unanimously at their June 3rd meeting that I should write to advise certain groups that use the municipal recreation fields that are between the Library and the Westridge Cemetery that parking within the cemetery is NOT allowed and individuals who do park there may have their vehicles ticketed or towed. This rule was made several years ago for safety reasons and the Commissioners intend to fully enforce this rule so that no one gets hurt. We request that each Charlton team that uses the field help us enforce this rule by advising all parents and those of the visiting teams.
We appreciate your assistance in this matter.
Donna L. Neylon, Clerk
Kristen Russell-May, Chairman
