New 2018 USA Bat Standard

posted Sep 30, 2017, 4:25 AM by Darren Petrie

As you are walking through your local Sporting Goods store you may see a bunch of bats that are marked way down and look like they are an incredible deal. "Great!",you say to yourself. "I can grab a new bat for little Johnny to use next Spring!"  Slow down and please think twice. That bat may not be legal next Spring.

Little League (along with other leagues such as Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken) is implementing the new USA Baseball Bat Standard starting 2018. This change has been a couple years in the making and one that we communicated about this past Spring. The bats at the Tee Ball level will have some exceptions so I am primarily addressing Minors (including Coach Pitch) and above.

Starting Spring 2018 season all bats must carry a USA Baseball marking.

If you wish to know more you can check out the Little League site USA BASEBALL BAT STANDARD: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS page.

South Germantown Field C Improvement Project - Phase One

posted May 2, 2017, 11:51 AM by Darren Petrie   [ updated May 2, 2017, 11:57 AM ]

If you have been up at South Germantown Field C in the past week you have probably seen some construction and wondered what is going on.  Well after over three years of planning, permitting and waiting, ground has finally been broken on Phase 1 of the South Germantown Field C improvement project.  Woo Hoo!

Phase 1 includes the installation of a scoreboard, bleachers and dugouts. Last week holes were dug 12 feet deep for the scoreboard beams.  Today the scoreboard was put into place. 

Please be wary of the construction and avoid the areas as there as safety issues and we don't want to see any unnecessary injuries.

Here are some photos of the work.
