Equipment Swap on Opening Day!

Equipment Swap:

Every year it seems that we all have extra cleats, gloves, bats, helmets, pants, shirts, bags, etc... I am sure just like most families our children continue to grow faster than ever.  EGLL will have multiple bins available on opening day to bring all of your used equipment.  This swap will allow people within our community to take a look and see if items can be reused for their children. 

 

This swap will be held from 10:00AM - 12:30PM.  Whatever items are leftover/not claimed will be donated to children in the Dominican Republic who do not have equipment of their own to play this wonderful game.

 

Thank you again for all your support of the East Granby Little League and we look forward to seeing all of you Saturday, April 22nd at East Granby Farms for Opening Day!

EAST GRANBY LITTLE LEAGUE COMMUNITY

 

Please join us as we celebrate “EGLL Night out with the Yardgoats” on Friday, May 19, 2017.  Doors open at 6:05pm and first pitch is at 7:05pm.  EGLL will not schedule any league games on May 19, 2017, so come out and enjoy Connecticut’s newest professional baseball team take the field against the Cleveland Indians’ AA affiliate, the Akron Rubberducks.  As an added bonus, the team that sells the most tickets will have an opportunity to go into the dugout prior to the game, meet the players, and take the field with the Yardgoats for the National Anthem.  I hope to see you there! 

 

For ticket information, please contact Brandon Freeman at

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.
