Home Run Derby Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation.
.

Hi my name is Hannah Gardner, student at Central High School. For my school marketing and Deca project my group and I have organized a Home Run Derby at Padden field on October 26th at 12-3 to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation. It is $10 per person so play and split into a boys and girls division. In each division the winner will receive a prize. Also we will be selling raffle tickets to raffle off a prize and have a concession stand. Each participant will have 7 outs. We would love if South Little League could participate in this event. Thank you for your consideration and hopefully your participation!

Little League places ban on composite baseball bats

The Little League International Board of Directors Executive Committee, which operates all divisions of Little League Baseball, including the Little League World Series, has issued an immediate and complete moratorium on the use of composite bats.

Composite bats, which sell for upwards of $300, first popped onto the amateur baseball scene in the early 2000s.  Made of not only aluminum, but also wrapped in woven graphite, they generate far more power and allow for faster bat speeds via better swing weight management.

Today, Little League decided that the technology was beginning to put youth at risk.  When struck well, baseballs will fly off of composite bats at much higher rates of speed than regular old aluminum models

 Information on the composite baseball bats that have received waivers for the Little League (Majors) Baseball Division and below can be found here:
http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/approvedcompbatssmall.htm

Wooden and aluminum metal/alloy bats are not subject to the moratorium. Bats that have only a metal or alloy barrel (and no other material, unless it is in the end cap of the bat), and if it meets the other standards (length, diameter, etc. for the respective division in which it is used) are not subject to the moratorium, regardless of the composition of the handle or the transition to the barrel.

A listing of licensed, non-wood/non-composite baseball bats for use in the Little League (Majors) Division and below can be found here: http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/2011ApprovedNonWoodBatList.pdf
