New Bat Rules Starting in 2018
Little League International has adopted the new USABaseball Bat Standard (USABat) effective Jan 1, 2018. This new bat standard covers all divisions of Little League except Softball and Seniors Baseball. These changes are being mandated by Little League International, not by GLL.
All bats used in the 2018 season will need to be inspected and stickered by GLL prior to use; Umpires and Managers will be checking bats for these stickers prior to all games in 2018. GLL will hold a bat inspection and sticker event that will coincide with the Dick's Discount Day event in 2018.
In summary, all non-wood bats used in the Baseball Rookies, Minors, Majors and Juniors divisions prior to the 2018 season are illegal starting Jan 1, 2018. Additional details can be found HERE.
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.
