CPLL News - End of Year Edition
Little League changed its bat rule last season. Here is a link of the FAQ regarding the current 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/.
Document Verification Night
The second and final Document Verification Night will be on Wed, 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
We will be at at CPLL on Saturday, January 5th 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 cleanup 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 are only for AA, AAA, and Majors divisions and will be held on two dates: January 12th and January 19th. It’s is required that you attend one of them. 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 can’t wait for the new season to start. Thank you very much and Happy Holidays.
