New Bat Rules Starting for 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 Baseball Rookies, Minors, Majors and Juniors divisions will need to be inspected and stickered by GLL prior to use in 2018; umpires and Managers will be checking bats for these stickers prior to games. If you missed getting your bat checked and stickered at the Dick's Discount Day event, we will be inspecting and stickering bats at the Family Meetings and during the Opening Day ceremonies at the concessions stand.
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. Update: Little League International amended their rules Feb 15 for the Baseball Juniors division, they are now allowing BBCOR certified bats.
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.
