Bull City Little League: Welcome

Take the Liberty Mutual Play Positive Pledge for BCLL

BCLL is participating in the Liberty Mutual Play Positive pledge of good sportsmanship this winter. The winter pledge period opened on Saturday, November 15th and ends on January 15th. If BCLL is one of the top pledging organizations at the end of the pledge period, we will win a $2,500 grant for the league.

We ask that you take the pledge to promote good sportsmanship at BCLL by visiting the Play Positive website and taking the pledge on behalf of Bull City Little League. It only takes a minute.

Please also share this link (or our Facebook post) with your family and friends and help promote sportsmanship all around. We have until January 15th to get as many pledges as possible, so get to pledging!

BCLL Board of Directors for the 2015 Fiscal Year 

BCLL's annual meeting was held Thursday evening, October 16th, at the Town & Country building across from the fields.  We had a great turnout of parents who were interested in learning more about the operation of the league and in contributing their talents to maintaining and improving BCLL.  

Some existing members were elected to new positions, and several new members were elected to the Board.  We sincerely thank those persons who attended, we welcome our new Board members, and we particularly thank those individuals who have not joined the Board, but have agreed to assist the Board and to serve on Commitees to assist in the support and management of the league.

Little League Outlaws Composite bats for Spring 2011

For Majors and below, Little League International has outlawed composite barreled bats for the spring season.

This means no one playing in North Durham Little League games will be allowed to use composite bats.

Little League International MAY provide a list of composite bats which are still considered legal, but they have not done so yet.

Here is the information from Little League International:
