New Bat Rules Starting in 2018
League International is adopting the new USABaseball Bat Standard (USABat) effective Jan 1, 2018.
As we have been mentioning for over a year, new bats will be required for the Baseball and T-Ball divisions starting Jan 1, 2018 (Softball and Seniors Baseball excluded); these changes are being mandated by Little League International, not by GLL. In summary, all non-wood bats used this season are illegal starting Jan 1, 2018; additional details can be found HERE.
All bats used in the 2018 season will need to be inspected and stickered by the GLL Board prior to use; Umpires and Managers will be checking all bats for these stickers prior to all games in 2018. GLL will hold a bat inspection and sticker event that likely will coincide with the Dick's Discount Day in 2018.
We are very fortunate to have a core group of loyal sponsors that have been with us for several years; we also have new sponsors join us each year. It is through the generosity of these sponsors that we are able to continue to offer our little league program. Please review our current list of sponsors and consider using them for your needs and services when possible. If you are interested in sponsoring a team you can find details in the SPONSORSHIP section of the "Downloads" page of this website; or contact Jo Maehl by clicking HERE.
New Little League Fields Complex
We continue to make slow, but steady progress on developing our new Little League fields complex at the corner of River Bend and Lakefield Roads. Every Baseball (excluding Juniors) and Softball team will be scheduled for at least one game on these new fields in 2018. We continue to search for sponsors and contributions that can help us continue our progress, please contact Jerry Faust if you can help us out.
Please consider volunteering to help with this project; your efforts will be a legacy for our community for decades to come. Click HERE for current information.
