2017 Charlton Little League Champions
Regular Season Champions: Incom Cubs
Manager: Rich Lucht
Playoff Champions: O'Malley's Auto Body Padres

Playoff Champions - AmComm Wireless Diamondbacks
Manager: Jared Green
Country Bank Mariners 17 - Camosse Masonry Rockies 6
AMCOMM DIAMONDBACKS ‘DO THE RIGHT THINGS’ ON WAY TO TITLE
“You do the right things, the right things will happen.” They’re the words Coach Green of the AAA Amcomm Diamondbacks told his players on Day 1 of baseball practice. And they’re the words his players lived by throughout the season as they capped off a strong playoff run with a 17-6 victory over the Camosse Masonry Brewers in the Championship game at Bond Field Wednesday night.
The game saw it all: Timely hitting. Solid pitching. Sound defense. Smart base running.
Adam LaFortune pitched three solid innings for the Champs, with Caden Green coming on strong at the end to close it out. At the plate, players up and down the D-Backs lineup dug in and delivered. Leading the charge with two hits each: Devin Rowden, Francisco Diaz and Adam Rydlak. Chipping in with singles: Caden Green, A.J. Desto, Camden Bousquet, Jo Jo Kustigian and Colin Brush.
But the victory had to be earned. Because the Brewers refused to go down without a bang. Contributing with hits for the Brewers: MacConnell, Gadbois, Mazur, Henault, Resener and Chute. With the defensive play of the game going to Andrew Henault, who robbed Camden Bousquet of an extra base hit with a diving catch in left, then smartly doubled up the runner at second.
In the end, it was baseball the way baseball should be played. Two teams, playing hard and doing all the right things.
Congratulations Champion Diamondbacks and runner-up Brewers for giving the fans a great game to watch. You should all be proud of the way you played.
Playoff Champions - Coonan Insurance Yankees

Little League has adopted new bat standards for the 2018 season. For those planning on buying a bat in the next year or so, this could have an impact on your decision. Any bats not meeting the new standard will not be allowed after the 2017 season. The new bats are not yet being produced. See the info below from Little League, and you can click on the link at the end for more information.
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.

Regarding Parking Regulations at Center Field
The Cemetery Commissioners voted unanimously at their June 3rd meeting that I should write to advise certain groups that use the municipal recreation fields that are between the Library and the Westridge Cemetery that parking within the cemetery is NOT allowed and individuals who do park there may have their vehicles ticketed or towed. This rule was made several years ago for safety reasons and the Commissioners intend to fully enforce this rule so that no one gets hurt. We request that each Charlton team that uses the field help us enforce this rule by advising all parents and those of the visiting teams.
We appreciate your assistance in this matter.
