Are you thinking of buying a new bat for your Little League player this holiday season? Be sure it is the new USAbat standard (NOT the old Little League Approved standard) which takes effect on January 1st, 2018! Look for the "USA Baseball" stamp on your bat before buying.

Did you know we have a feature on our website that may be of interest to all Laconia Little League members. You can use the dropdown beside the Cell-phone area of your personal account, Registration / Edit My Account member areas to specify your cell phone carrier. After you make this selection, all broadcast email messages, including schedule change notices and GAME CANCELLATIONS sent from the website will also be sent to your cell phone as text messages. So now if they cancel the game while you're on the road, you'll know about it right away, instead of waiting until you get near a computer or wait for a call from your Coach or Manager.
In order to make this happen, your will have to choose your cell phone carrier through either online registration or the Edit My Account feature. ALL GAME CANCELLATIONS OR CHANGES, any position-specific e-mails (Board Member, Coach, etc) and any League-wide E-mails will be sent as a text message to your Cell Phone. Choosing a carrier turns text messaging on for the corresponding cell phone number and you need to do nothing else!
*If you pay per text message, please be aware your service provider could charge for each Text Message you receive. You can cancel the service at anytime simply by removing your cell phone carrier from beside your cell phone.
