2016 RULE CHANGES NOT IN RULEBOOKS

During regional meetings this past winter throughout the world, District Administrators, Assistant District Administrators, and other volunteers, discussed modifications to regulations and playing rules for Little League Baseball and Softball.

The voting resulted in approval two non-tournament items and four tournament items. The Little League International Board of Directors, decided to implement five of these changes immediately for the 2016 season. Because these changes occurred after the printing of the 2016 rulebooks, they do not appear in the current rulebooks. Leagues need to insure that all relevent personnel receive copies of these changes. Here are links to the new rule chnages:

DISTRICT 1 RAIN-OUT POLICY

Weather is variable in Anchorage from hour to hour and from location to location.  We can and do play baseball/softball in the rain in Alaska.  Most fields drain well and unless there is standing water on the field that cannot be abated, the games will proceed.   A decision will not be made to cancel or postpone a game due to rain until game time. The  Home Plate Umpire will make that decision.  Please make sure your teams show up ready to play.

An exception will be made for games involving teams traveling to or from the Mat-Su Valley or the Kenai Peninsula.  Those games may be cancelled in advance of traveling.  Please check with the host league before traveling.

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.
