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.

Snack Shack 101

Snack Shack 101
Submitted by Kristin Kustigian 

 

This is a general overview of how to operate the snack shack, for those who have not yet had the pleasure.  Your coach should have a key to open the shack, bathrooms and equipment area.



*The key for the metal window cover at Bond is above the microwave.  Just unlock, push the metal cover up, and put the locks in the shack snack above the microwave.

 

Cash Box

The cash box is located inside the bottom cabinet near the sink (in both shacks).  It should contain $40 (a mix of ones, fives and a ten) and a bunch of coins.  Please be sure to leave small bills for the next shift.


Prices

The prices for all items are listed near the windows. 


There are frozen items in the freezers: pretzels, ice cream, hotdogs and buns.

Drinks and condiments are in the refrig.  Thawed hotdogs and buns might be in refrig too.  Usually, water, soda, ice tea, gatorade.


There is a keurig for making coffee.

Microwave for making popcorn (2.15 mins), pretzels (1.15 mins), hot chocolate (8 oz cup is 1.30 mins).


There is a steamer for making hotdogs.  Fill the bottom reservoir to the line with water and turn it on.  Hot dogs go in the middle compartment, and buns go in the top.  It has a timer, so you know when they are ready.



Lightening Detection Device

There is a lightening detector device plugged in near the countertop, and it will alert you to bad weather in the area.  If the 3-8 miles light comes on, please let the coaches and ump know.  



First Aid/ AED

There is an AED, ice packs, and first aid kits if the need arises.



End of Shift

At the end of your shift:  Count the bills and leave $40 in the cash box ($15 in ones, $15 in fives, and $10 in tens).  If you don't have this combination -- just leave $40 in the smallest bills you have.   

Put the rest of the money in an envelope (found in the drawer) mark the envelope with the date, amount, and your name and seal it and put it in the drop box located on the floor (under the micro at Bond // behind the door at Center).  A board member empties the drop box and deposits the funds regularly.  


Please wait for the next shift to arrive prior to leaving.



Last Game of Day

 

Empty and clean the steamer, wipe the counters, and put away all food items.


Please return the cash box with the $40 plus coins to the bottom cabinet.  Put your envelope containing all other cash, your name, date and amount in the drop box.  


The locks for the metal window cover at Bond Rd are hanging above the microwave.


The coach should lock up the snack shack, bathrooms and equipment shed.

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.

  

Thank you.

Cemetery Commissioners

            Donna L. Neylon, Clerk

            Kristen Russell-May, Chairman

            Jason Sciarappa, Vice Chairman
