North Anaheim Little League: News and Announcements

Monday, January 15
You signed up your Son or Daughter Whats next



If this is your child's first time playing baseball, you will need to get his/her equipment. All player's need to have a glove, a bat, cleats (non metal spikes), and protective cup (for boys, not girls). We have extra batting helmets per team, but if you want to get their own, that is ok. We recommend an equipment bag to carry all their belongings, so nothing gets lost. 

 Uniform: The league will provide each player a hat and jersey. You will need to get pants, belt, and socks. We are currently setting up the teams. Once we know how many teams/ players we have, we will let you know what color socks, belt, and pants to get. 

We recommend Big 5 on Orangethorpe in Fullerton for Uniforms, and Play it Again Sports on Yorba Linda Blvd in Fullerton for equipment.  Let us know if you having any trouble getting any of the above equipment. 

 

 Si esta es la primera vez que su hijo juega béisbol, deberá obtener su equipo. Todos los jugadores deben tener un guante, un bate,  cleats (puntas no metálicas) y una copa protectora (para niños, no para niñas). Tenemos cascos de bateo adicionales por equipo, pero si quieres obtener el suyo, está bien. Recomendamos una bolsa de equipo para llevar todas sus pertenencias, para que nada se pierda.

Uniform: La liga le proporcionará a cada jugador un gorra y una camiseta. Necesitará pantalones, cinturón y calcetines. Actualmente estamos configurando los equipos. Una vez que sepamos cuántos equipos / jugadores tenemos, le haremos saber qué color de calcetines, cinturón y pantalones debe obtener.

Recomendamos Big 5 en Orangethorpe en Fullerton para Uniformes, y Play it Again Sports en Yorba Linda Blvd en Fullerton para equipo. Háganos saber si tiene algún problema para obtener alguno de los equipos anteriores.

Little League International Issues Update Regarding Composite Bats: Moratorium Imposed Immediately
By Communications Division
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa.
December 30, 2010

Little League International has placed a moratorium on the use of composite bats in the Little League (Majors) Division and all other baseball divisions of Little League, effective immediately.

“Today’s decision of the Little League International Board of Directors Executive Committee is based on scientific research data from the University of Massachusetts (Lowell), which was contracted by Little League Baseball,” Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. “The maximum performance standard for non-wood bats in the divisions for 12-year-olds and below is a Bat Performance Factor (BPF) of 1.15. The research found that composite bats, while they may meet the standard when new, can exceed that standard after a break-in process.”

Local Little Leagues were first informed of the research last September.

“From the beginning, and throughout this process, we wanted to keep everyone informed,” Patrick W. Wilson, Vice President of Operations at Little League International, said. “Our intent was to provide local league constituents clear direction regarding composite bats. There is a process through which manufacturers can submit individual models for a possible waiver if they wish to seek it. Going forward, we will let our leagues know which ones meet the standards for the Little League Baseball (Majors) 12-and-under divisions, if any.”

On Sept. 1, Little League International placed a moratorium on composite bats in the Junior, Senior, and Big League Baseball Divisions of Little League. Subsequent to that moratorium, some composite bat models have received a waiver and may be used in those divisions. Information on the composite bats that have received waivers for the Junior, Senior, and Big League Baseball Divisions of Little League may be found here:

http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/approvedcompbats.htm

At present, no composite bats for the Little League (Majors) Division and below have received a waiver. If and when any models do receive a waiver, Little League International will inform its leagues of that decision.

The moratorium on composite bats, which now applies to all baseball divisions of Little League, does not apply to any softball divisions of Little League.

Note: The moratorium on composite bats only applies to composite-barreled bats. Bats that have only a metal/alloy in the barrel (and no other material, unless it is in the end cap of the bat) are not subject to the moratorium, regardless of the composition of the handle.
