"People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball.
I'll tell you what I do, --  I stare out the window and wait for spring." -

PARENTS DON'T BUY THAT EXPENSIVE BAT - JUST YET

Think twice about buying that new expensive baseball bat.  For the 2018 season, ALL baseball bats for Little League play (Juniors and below) must have a USA BASEBALL stamp on them to be legal. Unfortunately, most bat manufacturers will not be producing these until September of 2017.

Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball will adhere to the new USA Bat standard. No bats previously approved for use in Little League Play (Junior League Baseball and below) will be permitted to be used in any Little League game or practice, or other Little League function, event, or activity.   Senior Baseball bats will continue to need BBCOR markings.  For more information please check here.

Be aware that this new bat standard affects Little League Baseball only. There are no changes to the bat standard or regulations for Little League Softball.

STEROID ABUSE AMONG KIDS



image_name2
The average age that a child begins taking dietary supplements is 10.8 years old. Few people realize that these products are unregulated – that no one is verifying that what’s on the label of the container is what is in that container. As a result, some are spiked with banned substances like anabolic steroids, stimulants, and other contaminants.

Little League parents, coaches and volunteers should be aware of the prevalence of the use of anabolic steroids and other Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs (APEDs) among today’s young athletes. The Taylor Hooton Foundation is proud to offer one of our education programs in partnership with Little League Baseball and Softball. This 30-minute eLearning course, hosted by Bob Costas, is a real eye-opener for parents and is essential for every coach that is leading young people in all age groups.
