Use of Composite Bats

On Dec. 30, 2010, Little League International announced it had expanded its moratorium on the use of composite bats to all of its baseball divisions, including the Little League (Majors) division, effective immediately. The announcement regarding the moratorium is here: http://www.littleleague.org/media/newsarchive/2010/Sep-Dec/CompositeBatMoratium.htm

A listing of licensed baseball bats approved for use for 2011 in the Little League (Majors) Division and below can be found here: 2011 Approved Non-Wood Bat List (PDF) 


 

Parking at the fields

SBLL has been working with a neighborhood organization to improve the parking issues at the field.  The main parking issues have been: Parking within 20 feet of the intersection of 21st Ave and Larkspur, parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant, and parking where official signs prohibit it. In addition be very careful to leave room for access into private driveways.  The police have been notified to especially look for those violations and ISSUE TICKETS! Please help us to be good guests in their neighborhood and follow the parking restrictions. v
