Buffalo Wild Wings Fundraiser!
Little League International has decertified the 30-Inch Easton Ghost X (-10) 2 5/8” (YBB18GX10 & LL18GHX). Please check to see if your child has this bat. More information: https://usabat.com/decertified-bats/.
We want to make you aware of a change in bat rules mandated by Little League International that will require you to buy new bats for play effective January 1, 2018. The bats are intended to provide a safer playing experience for our children.
All levels of Little League baseball are required to have a bat with the new 2018 USA Bat stamp on it. This is a mandate of Little League International. Every district, every city, every Little League organization is required to follow this new bat standard.
Little League International baseball bat information: www.littleleague.org/batinfo.
What does this mean for you? Every child will need to use a bat with the new stamp on it. This rule affects all age levels, from 5-12 years old. If your child will be receiving a bat before next season (such as for a Christmas gift), please make sure it has the approved bat stamp.
To help accommodate the new rule, B.A.L.L. will be supplying all teams with one team bat that has the stamp and complies with the new bat standard. The bat will be an average size for each age group.
We will send regular reminders in email and have information posted here on our website, so no one is surprised by this new rule next year. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have, or refer to the Little League International website for detailed information.
Did you know that before Max Scherzer and Chris Sale were pitchers in the MLB, they played in the Northwoods League? Keep up on the Northwoods League online or catch a live game! Some of the teams are not too far away -- St. Cloud, Duluth, Willmar and Mankato, or even Madison, LaCrosse or Eau Claire! We are the only Little League to wear their colors and they love us - so if you go, be sure to let the teams know. You might just get on the field with the big guys!
