2018 Baseball Season - 12/22/2017
Hello CPLL Families,
We are getting closer to the 2018 Baseball Season and there are a few important items to communicate.
- New Baseball Bat Rules! Little League has changed the bat rules and previous bats will no longer be allowed to be used starting January 1st. This includes for games, practices and cages. If you have purchased a bat for your child as a holiday gift PLEASE double check it to ensure that it meets the new standards and if it does not please return it for one that does. You will not be able to use it at all. Here is a link of the FAQ regarding the new bat standards as well as the logo you should look for when buying a bat. http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo/USA-Baseball-Bat-Standard-FAQs.htm Here is the link for the actual qualified bat list: https://usabat.com/.
- The second and final document verification night will be on Tuesday, January 9th from 6-8 in the Steindorf STEAM school multi-purpose room (cafeteria). This is the school at our little league field site. If you did not attend the first one in December it is required that you attend this one so your child can be verified to play in our league this year. Every family must verify every year. Here is a link detailing approved documents for verifying residency http://www.cpllbaseball.org/organizations/263/pages/6506 . If your child is playing in CPLL based on where they go to school, rather than living within our boundaries, the school attendance form must be signed by the school principal, not someone else in the office.
- Field Clean-Up Day will be held on Saturday, January 6th from 9-12 AM. We encourage all parents and kids to come out and help get the fields ready for the season. If you have rakes, shovels, blowers or other related equipment please bring it along. If you have a particular skill and can help with other related items please let us know when you arrive or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . All of CPLL is run by volunteers and these clean up days are a great way for families to give a little back to the league. Please come on down if at all possible – even if just for an hour or two.
- Tryouts! Tryouts are only for AA, AAA and Majors divisions and will be held on two dates – January 13th and January 20th. It’s is required that you attend one of them but you so that you can be placed on a team but you do not need to attend both. Please put those dates on your calendars and we will be in touch as we get closer with specific times for each division.
We are lucky to be part of such an amazing community here in Cambrian Park and we all appreciate the trust you put in us having your kids play baseball with us. We can’t wait for the new season to start. Thank you very much and Happy Holidays.
