With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game.
eveloped by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved. Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information.
Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.
Welcome to Luckie Waller Little League’s new website. We have partnered with Sport Ngin, an innovative sports technology company, to develop a website that will be more user friendly for our families and administrators so that we can continue to provide a quality baseball program for our kids.
Communication with the league will be easier than ever allowing our community to stay tuned to the latest updates. Online payments and registrations will be more secure.
For our managers, they will have access to their own team page making constant contact with their team easy for game and practice reminders-eliminating the need for the team parent or manager to create a separate site of their own . Pitch count tracking and standings will be easy to read and locate.
All these new tools will allow the adult members of our league to cut down on administrative time and enjoy more time out playing with the kids. There’s even an app that you can try out with Apple and Android (look for Sports Ngin) so that you can stay up to date no matter where your busy life takes you! Welcome back, let’s play ball!
