Investing in a New Baseball Bat?

Before you make that purchase, please remember...

The USA Baseball youth baseball bat standard goes into effect January 1, 2018.  Current Little League-approved baseball bats can be used through December 31, 2017 and current baseball bat regulations are in effect until then.  This includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 1/4" barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved.

Bats branded with the USABat standard are anticipated to be available in retail stores beginning in September 2017.

Message from the taxman....

Did you know any non-profit organization that does not file Form 990 for three consecutive years automatically loses its federal tax exemption status?  Did you know any local league enrolled under the Little League Federal Group Tax Exemption and 501(c)(3) status must provide Little League in Williamsport a copy of your league's annual financial report? Go to LittleLeague.org/Accounting for more info.
