Once again Homer LL is looking to assemble teams to play in the District 8 fall league. This year we are looking for teams at the 9U, 11U and 14U levels.
Cost is $30 per player. This cost covers team hat, team jersey and league fees.
Teams are likely to practice once per week during the season (depends on coach and player availability). Games will be double headers (2 games) played on September 10, 17, 24 and October 1. Game times and locations are TBD.
A few reasons to play fall ball:
Your child just loves to play baseball!
Your child is moving from coach pitch (Diamond) to player pitch (Vosburgh) next season
Your child is moving up to modified (60/90) next spring
Please complete the registration form, and bring payment to Griggs Field on August 19 anytime between 8:30 and 10 AM.
Testing and evaluating of youth baseball bats has evolved into a science. So much so that the standard has also evolved to where USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the United States, is adopting a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats that will go into effect on January 1, 2018. The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat), was developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts.
Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball® will adhere to the new USABat standard. As a result all bats used in Little League starting in the 2018 season must be marked with the USA Baseball logo.
Homer Little League is sharing this information now because we know that many families may be looking to purchase new bats for the 2017 season. We want you to be aware of the new requirements beyond this season.
For those families who do NOT purchase their own bats do not worry, each team will be issued bats complying with this new standard.
