February 15, 2018 Update to Bats

Recently, USA Baseball has provided Little League and other youth organizations with some additional guidance on how organizing bodies, like Little League International, can make it easier for local leagues, volunteers, and players to use bats within our programs. We encourage you to review their FAQs at USABat.com, as well as the information on LittleLeague.org/BatInfo.

Effective immediately (Thursday, February 15, 2018), Little League has amended Rule 1.10 for Little League Baseball for the Coach Pitch/Machine Pitch Divisions and the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division and Junior League, to reflect this guidance from USA Baseball. Read the fully updated Rule 1.10 on LittleLeague.org.

Coach Pitch/Machine Pitch

Players may use approved Tee Ball bats, including those that were produced and/or purchased prior to the implementation of the new standard that have been certified using an Approved Tee Ball Sticker via the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program (USABaseballShop.com) ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS.

Little League International encourages leagues using approved Tee Ball bats at the Coach Pitch/Machine Pitch level to only use approved tee balls in these instructional divisions to help avoid confusion as to what type of baseball should be used at any given time.

Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division and Junior League

In addition to using bats approved for Little League play based on the USABat Standard, players in these two divisions can also choose to use bats that have been approved and appropriately certified using the BBCOR standard. All bats not made of a single piece of wood shall meet the Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) performance standard, and such bats shall be so labeled with a silkscreen or other permanent certification mark. The certification mark shall be rectangular, a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color. Aluminum/alloy and composite bats shall be marked as to their material makeup being aluminum/alloy or composite. This marking shall be silkscreen or other permanent certification mark, a minimum of one-half-inch on each side, and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color.

Please note that these changes are only applicable to these levels of play within the Little League Baseball program. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at support@LittleLeague.org.

New for 2018: ASAP Plans Can Be Submitted through the Little League® Data Center

It's time to put the finishing touches on those ASAP Plans for 2018. Submitting plans before April brings cash rewards for both leagues and districts.

Leagues are encouraged to upload their League Safety Plan in a Word format so it can be edited in future years.

If leagues have completed their Facility Survey through the online submission portal in the past, your information should populate this year for you in the new system. Otherwise, complete the Survey this year for access to it in future years.

If you are submitting your ASAP information online, the Qualified Registration form is part of the process and not a separate document this year.

Last, your player and volunteer Data must be uploaded before your plan can be approved. Don't wait until March 31 to complete everything!

Important 2018 Tax Reminder

Please accept this notice as a reminder of your league's responsibility to submit a federal tax return to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Any non-profit organization that does not file the proper 990 Form with the IRS for three consecutive years automatically loses its federal tax exemption resulting in the organization's income becoming taxable and contributors being unable to report their contributions as tax deductions. This year's filing deadline is February 15, 2018.

I Focused on Performance, Not Fun

It's winter time now and snow is on the ground, but as I drive by our local Little League® field, I can envision the kids cheering from the dugouts and putting on their batting helmets to step up to the plate.

This will be my son's last year of Little League. He loved baseball from the start, and it felt like forever until he was old enough for Tee Ball. It was clear from that first year that he was naturally better than many kids his age. Read more...
