Spring is in the air in North Big Horn County, which means baseball season is just around the corner. Saturday, March 23, 2013 begins an exciting time for area little leaguers. At 8:00 A.M. Minors players (8-10 yrs old) will meet for the first of two combine sessions for participants to showcase their talents for their future little league coaches. Major leaguers (11-12 yrs) and the new 50/70 league will begin their session at 10:00 A.M. Since no players will be cut or left unselected, it’s important that everyone have fun with the process and try their best.
The North Big Horn County Little League is split into divisions, T-Ball (5-6 yrs), Coach Pitch (6-8 yrs), Minors (8-10 yrs), and Majors (11-12 yrs), with a fifth, a 50/70 league being introduced this year for youths transitioning from Little League to upper divisions. The NBHLL combine will feature players that are new to either the minor or major leagues, that have not been through the draft for the league they will play in this season. So, if your child is moving from coach pitch to minors or from minors to majors, they need to attend the combine on Saturday, 3/23. On the other hand, if your son or daughter played in the minors last season and is going to play in minors again this season, he or she does not need to participate in the combine, unless he or she would like to reenter the draft for a chance at playing for a new team. The Coach Pitch and T-Ball drafts will be held at a future date.
Activities during the combine include the following:
• Warm-up Throwing with a Partner
• Stretching with League Official and Instructions
• 60' Base Running for Times
• Fielding Ground Balls (3 Grounders) & Throw to First Base
• Fielding Fly Balls (3 Fly Balls)
• Pitching (Throw 5 Pitches from Mound to Catcher)
• Batting (Receive 5 Pitches to Hit)
• Wiffle ball game (as time permits)
We look forward to meeting your child and wish you all a great season!

While most people are hunkering down in the middle of another long, Wyoming winter, local little league baseball enthusiasts are gearing up for Opening Day. Board member Jason Sumaya has indicated that coaches are still needed for the upcoming season. Individuals who are interested in volunteering are encouraged to contact Sumaya at 307-254-8255.
Sumaya has also been working to inventory equipment from last season. He has asked any former coaches, parents, or volunteers who still have equipment or who know where missing equipment may be located to please contact him with that information.

Below is the email sent out by Williamsport this morning concerning the new bat rules for 2012.
In a nutshell, the 2 ¼” bats used in LL and under remain the same, with the moratorium on composite-barreled bats still in effect. Only approved 2 ¼’composite-barreled bats can be used in these divisions.
For Junior League, any composite-barreled bat MUST meet BBCOR standards and be labeled as such. All BBCOR standard bats have a “drop” of no more than -3. Any non-composite barreled bat (metal, metal alloy or wood) can be used with no limitations on “drop” weight.
Senior and Big League, all non-wood bats MUST conform to BBCOR standards. This should not be an issue, as both the National Federation of High Schools and the NCAA, are using the same rule regarding bats.
Also, the definition of an illegal bat and the penalty have changed. The link included in the email lists both the changes and how the new rule 1.10, 2.00 – Definition of an Illegal Bat, and 6.06 (d) will be published.

The 2011 North Big Horn Little League season ended on a high note last week when the 11-12-year-old all-stars from Lovell, Cowley and Byron placed third at the West District Tournament in Lyman.
After defeating host Bridger Valley on Monday 16-10 then falling to Cody Tuesday 14-1 (as reported last week), the North Big Horn stars played for third Wednesday afternoon against Green River and won 11-6. The win ended the season for the all-stars, since the district tournament is single-elimination.
