2017 EGLL District Teams and Schedules

East Granby Little League is proud to announce our 2017 District Tournament Baseball/Softball Teams! 

We have a total of 3 Baseball teams and 3 softball teams competing in the District Tournament.  For those unfamiliar with the District Tournament, towards the middle of every summer, a national little league baseball tournament begins which culminates in a World Series, known as the Little League World Series.  This tournament starts off locally for every little league and as you continue to win, you progress until a few teams eventually reach the World Series.  Every year, East Granby enters several teams into this tournament.  Please come out and support our East Granby boys and girls as they compete for a chance to go to the World Series.

Summer Baseball Registration is now Open!

With the Spring season winding down, it is getting close to the start of Summer Baseball.  Registration for Summer Ball is now open!  EGLL will be fielding teams at the AA, AAA and Majors levels for baseball this season.

  

Final team placement will be based on a number of factors including age, which level the player played during the spring season, and skill level as determined by discussions with current coaches and player assessment as necessary. Players are guaranteed to play in the division in which they played during the spring with some possibility of moving up depending on numbers and player skill. 

 

EGLL reserves the right to adjust players among levels, as appropriate, during the first week of the season.

 

Summer Ball objectives and play are consistent with EGLL Spring Objectives, and provides all players the opportunity to expand their skills and enjoyment of the game.

 

Games are played Mondays through Thursday, with approximately two games a week, and 1-2 practices per week. They are scheduled over a six week period from the end of June to the first week in August. Rosters are built with the expectations that players will miss some games due to summer vacations and other commitments.  Each player will be provided with a team jersey and hat.

 

To register, please go to the EGLL Home Page, and visit the "2017 Registration" tab on the left column.

 

Any parent interested in coaching Summer Baseball should please contact Andrew Pisati (VP of Baseball) at .

 

Thank you,

EGLL Board of Directors

LITTLE LEAGUE BATS - CHANGES ON THE WAY (2018)

New 2018 Baseball Bat Standard

With the holidays upon us, are you thinking about purchasing a new baseball bat for your player?

While it makes a great gift, you may want to keep in mind that the bats that are currently available have a limited remaining lifespan in youth baseball, as they will become 'non-compliant' in about a year.

College baseball was first to make the change, then the high school level followed suit (2011). Now, there is a new wood-like performance standard for bats coming to youth baseball. This is not a change being enacted by East Granby Little League, but rather a new nationwide standard for youth baseball.  Little League International (along with AAU, Pony, Cal Ripken, Dixie, etc) will be implementing USA Baseball's new bat standard as of January 1, 2018 and thus, beginning in 2018, all bats used in Little League will need to have a "USABat" stamp on it. There are currently no bats on the market that carry that stamp.

Bottom Line:

1) Everyone in Little League baseball who has his/her own bat will need a new one beginning in 2018.

2) Baseball bats that meet the new requirement will go on sale beginning in the Fall of 2017.

 

New Youth Baseball Bat Standard (2018)

Key Facts

  • All current youth baseball bats will continue to be 'legal' in Little League through December 31, 2017

  • Baseball 1.15 BPF bats (current youth bats) will not be grandfathered in for the 2018 season

  • Wooden youth bats will be not be affected by the change in 2018

  • The goal of USA Baseball (youth baseball's governing body) is to make youth bats perform like wood.

  • There will be no limit to how light the new bats bat can be (there will be no drop weight limit), which should prove helpful for some younger players. Baseballs likely won't be hit quite as far off the new bats, but the larger diameter barrels should be helpful for players in terms of making contact.

  • New, approved YBBCOR 2 5/8" barrels will be 'legal' in Little League (among other organizations) beginning in 2018

  • USA Baseball has said the change is not being made for safety reasons, but rather for the integrity of the game.

  • TRAVEL PLAYERS: Many travel teams fall under USSSA, which is a separate entity from USA Baseball (which governs Little League). USSSA is not affected by the change to the USABat Standard and USSSA has no current plans to make a change. However, any travel player who also plays Little League Baseball would, beginning in 2018, need to make sure he/she uses a bat that meets the USABat Standard when playing in Little League.

  • SOFTBALL PLAYERS: The 2018 change currently affects baseball bats only. Little League Softball bats are governed by a separate standard.

2018 AGE DETERMINATION

2018 AGE DETERMINATION

Can you explain the new Little League Baseball® Age Determination date, and why the change was made? 

Little League® International always welcomes feedback from every one of our 7,000-plus leagues. We feel that the only way to provide the best experience for Little Leaguers® and their parents is to hear from and listen to our valuable volunteers and participants in communities worldwide. 

Little League conducted a very detailed participation research project. That research showed that parents, players, and volunteers want to see Little League® become, as a whole, a younger program, and give children an easier way to play Little League with their classmates. Our volunteer District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors carefully considered the results of the research, and ultimately changed the Age Determination Date for all divisions of Little League Baseball and the Little League Challenger Division® to August 31. This change will ensure that no child playing in the Little League/Major Division will turn 13 years old at any point during their final season in that division.

2018 BAT STANDARDS

2018 BAT STANDARDS

Can you tell me more about the new bat standard, and how it will affect my Little Leaguer®? 

Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball adopted the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. These new standards utilize the most current advancements available, so that manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. 

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. So, for the upcoming 2016 season and the 2017 season, there won’t be any change. You will still see the Little League name on bats being used for play. Beginning January 1, 2018, however, all bats must meet USA Baseball’s standards, and you won’t see Little League branding on permitted bats. The new bats are anticipated to be on sale starting in September 2017.
