DECERTIFIED BAT

Posted by Sandy Harrington at May 3, 2018 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

On Thursday, May 3, USA Baseball informed youth organizations, including Little League, that effective immediately, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8" (or the "Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8" at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30-inch drop 10 variation of the Easton Ghost X only. Pursuant to Rule 1.10, this is now an illegal bat. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play.

All parents, coaches, and umpires must check their bats and remove these bats from play if they are in possession of these bats.

Any questions regarding returns, refunds, or warranty claims for the Easton Ghost X 30/20 should be directed to Easton at ghostreturn@easton.com. Please visit USABat.com/Decertified-Bats for more information.

Posted by Sandy Harrington at Apr 10, 2018 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

A new mandatory play rule for tournament play is effective with the 2018 Little League International Tournament. The mandatory play regulation is for tournament season play only. Beginning this year, a manager's failure/refusal to insert players into the line-up as outlined in the new rule shall result in immediate ejection of the manager and removal for the remainder of the International Tournament, without replacement.

The umpire-in-chief or other individual designated by the game Tournament Director in consultation with the official scorekeeper, shall advise both team managers, at the appropriate time as outlined in the new rule, of their obligation to insert all players who have not completed their mandatory play requirement.

The full text of the updated Tournament Rule 9, which pertains to baseball and softball 8-10 year old division, 9-11 year old division, Little League, Intermediate division, and Junior League can be reviewed by clicking here.
