Little League® To Adopt New USA Baseball Bat Standard Starting With 2018 Season



 

With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game.

Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved.

Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.

Parent Confessions... My Kid Didn’t Make All-Stars... I Handled It Bad



Over the years, Little League® has received stories from parents throughout the world, reflecting on their influence, their behavior and how they handled themselves during the career of their Little Leaguer®. While a vast majority of our parents and guardians are extremely positive role models, we can all learn from select stories some have chosen to tell. 

My daughter was not the best player on the team, but she was good. Solid at the plate. Nice glove in the field. Other parents talked about how she hustled and how she started all the chants – “A cheerleader in the dugout,” one parent told me. I just smiled. While she had great spirit and a positive attitude, my daughter never wanted to be a cheerleader. All she talked about was softball. She worked hard at it, all through Little League, and improved so much. I figured with all her effort, and better than average skills, she’d make the All-Star team. She didn’t. We were both crushed – me more than her. 

The list of All-Stars was posted at the concession stand before our game. While she sat in the dugout, clearly upset, I walked around and found as many managers who voted for the All-Stars as I could. Read the Full Story

Updates and Changes to Little League® Rules and Regulations for the 2016 and 2017 Regular and Tournament Season Play

Throughout the winter of 2016, Little League® International held meetings with District Administrators, Assistant District Administrators, and other volunteers at each of our nine regions throughout the world. At each of these meetings, updates and changes to Little League Rules and Regulations were discussed, and at the conclusion of the meetings, these potential new rule and regulations were amended to reflect the direct input from the attendees at these meetings.

The amended agenda was then distributed to District Administrators to vote on whether or not Little League should adopt these new rules and regulations. In total, 463 District Administrators voted on these 10 items, which were then discussed, along with implementation strategies, at the annual spring meeting of the Little League International Board of Directors.

The full voting results can be found on LittleLeague.org.

ITEMS TO BE IMPLEMENTED IMMEDIATELY FOR THE 2016 SEASON:

All Division of Baseball and Softball:

Summary:
Beginning with the 2016 tournament season, League Presidents may be eligible to be selected by local league Board of Directors as tournament team manager or coach with written approval from their respective District Administrator. In the event that a District Administrator does not approve the selection, the League President may request the District Administrator determination be reviewed by the Little League International Charter/Tournament Committee through the appropriate Regional Office.

Read the full version and voting results of the amended Regulation 1(b) and Tournament Manager and Coaches

Softball Junior, Senior, and Big League:

Summary:
This allows players within the Junior, Senior, and Big League Softball divisions to be replaced on the pitcher's plate and return to pitch, even if removed from the game, providing they meet the substitution, charged conference, and mandatory play rule(s).

Read the full version and voting results of the amended Regulation VI(c), Playing Rule 3.03, and Tournament Rule 10

 

All Divisions of Baseball and Softball:

Summary:
This change allows leagues to release their tournament teams and begin holding tryouts or practices by tournament teams starting on June 1. Teams shall not be released until the availability and eligibility of all prospective team members has been established. Previously, leagues could announce their teams on June 15 or two weeks prior to the start of their tournament. The Little League group accident insurance underwritten by an AIG member company for tournament teams will not go into effect until June 1. In the event that a tournament would start prior to June 14, a league must obtain a waiver from the Little League International Charter/Tournament Committee to announce its tournament team and begin to hold tryouts or practice prior to the new date of June 1. 

All leagues are strongly encouraged to continue to provide regular season and special game opportunities for their players after June 1.

Read the full version and voting results of the amended Tournament Team Practice 

Baseball and Softball 9/10-, 10/11-, 11/12-Year-Old Divisions:

Summary:
This change expands the tournament opportunities, making these three tournaments open to a three-year range of players, and provides leagues additional flexibility in their player selection. The new age structure will create the 8/9/10-Year-Old Division; 9/10/11-Year-Old Division; and 10/11/12-Year-Old Division.

Read the full version and voting results of the amended Tournament Player Eligibility 

ITEMS TO BE IMPLEMENTED FOR THE 2017 SEASON:

Baseball and Softball Major, Intermediate (50/70), Junior, Senior, and Big League:

Summary:
This change provides participants at these levels of play the ability to participate in two divisions, provided they qualify under age requirements, Residency/School Attendance Eligibility Requirements, programs, and divisions of play. A player may only be selected to one Tournament team, and must meet tournament eligibility requirements for that specific division.

Can you explain the new Little League Baseball® Age Determination date, and why the change was made?



Little League® International always welcomes feedback from every one of our 7,000-plus leagues. We feel that the only way to provide the best experience for Little Leaguers® and their parents is to hear from and listen to our valuable volunteers and participants in communities worldwide.

Little League conducted a very detailed participation research project. That research showed that parents, players, and volunteers want to see Little League® become, as a whole, a younger program, and give children an easier way to play Little League with their classmates. Our volunteer District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors carefully considered the results of the research, and ultimately changed the Age Determination Date for all divisions of Little League Baseball and the Little League Challenger Division® to August 31. This change will ensure that no child playing in the Little League/Major Division will turn 13 years old at any point during their final season in that division.

Can you tell me more about the new bat standard, and how it will affect my Little Leaguer®?

Click here to find the latest bat information, including the current Little League Baseball rules and regulations governing bats, definition of terms, the moratorium on the use of composite bats, and a series of frequently asked questions, with answers and licensed bat lists.
