2018 Northampton Prep & Junior Legion Tryouts

Dear Council Rock Holland Little League Community:

The below information is from Northampton Legion Baseball, to outline the upcoming Prep & Junior Prep tryouts as well as additional information regarding the 2018 program.  Please note due to the age changes made those born after 04/31/05 will not be eligible for Prep Legion this year as they are still considered as Little League age 12’s.  Feel free to contact CRHLL for more information about Little League options for 2018 if necessary.



The tryouts for Prep & Junior Legion are as follows:

Saturday 10/21
Jr. Legion 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM @ St. Leonard’s
Prep Legion 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM  @ St. Leonard’s

Sunday 10/22

Please keep in mind some important changes to the Northampton Legion Program for the 2018 season  

  1. Age cutoff date has been moved back from May 1st to Jan 1st
  2. Prep Legion is now 13-14
  3. Jr. Legion is now 15-16

For Northampton Legion purposes, for the 2018 season, a player will play at the age level he will be turning during the 2018 calendar year (see chart below). The only exception to this is the 13’s – the only players eligible to play Legion at that age are those born from 01/01/05 – 04/31/05. Those born after 04/31/05 will not be eligible for Prep Legion this year as they are still considered as Little League age 12’s

 Year of Birth

Legion Age for 2018 Season


(born between 1/1/05 and 4/31/05)







A couple of other quick notes:

  1. There can only be a max number of twelve 14’s on the Prep Legion Team and twelve 16’s on the Jr. Legion team.
  2. Legion is wood bat only – maple or ash (no bamboo or composite)
  3. All players are required to attend at least 2 of the tryouts (we recommended attending as many as possible)

New Bat Information from Dick's Sporting Goods!

As you have probably heard, 2018 is bringing changes to youth baseball bats. Effective January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball bat standard, or USABat, will allow youth baseball organizations to reach their goal of wood-like bat performance in order to preserve the long-term integrity of the game, as well as instill a sense of uniformity among leagues.
USA Baseball will institute this standard in the following national member organizations:
• American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC)
• Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Baseball]
• Dixie Boys Baseball
• Dixie Youth Baseball
• Little League Baseball
• PONY Baseball
As we are governed by Little League Baseball, then you will need to purchase a new bat for legal play in 2018. USA Baseball-approved youth bats became available for purchase September 1st at DICK’S Sporting Goods.
As a reminder, here is the link to our baseball/softball coupons for all of your baseball needs throughout the fall season:

New Bat Regulations for 2018! (updated 8/20/17)

New Bat Regulations Coming for 2018!

Before you purchase a new bat, you may want to know about the new regulations being adopted by all members of USA Baseball beginning 1/1/2018.

There are new bat rules from T-Ball up to Junior Little League.  Please check this link for more information:



When preparing to purchase bats for the Fall, and looking into the Spring, take the below into consideration based on the program(s) involved.  Remember, Fall Ball ages are generally your age for the next Spring season.  Based on that, and the below, you may want to be cautious how you spend your money.  Many sporting goods stores will be trying to sell some bats at deep discounts to move inventory as a result of some changes, so it is important you understand these changes.  It is also important to note that most players at 13 will require at least 2 bats……

1. Middle and High School
There will be no change in the bat rules for PIAA baseball (following NFHS standards).  They allow wood bats, but the most common bat is the aluminum or composite -3 BBCOR (BBCOR Baseball Bats feature a barrel that does not exceed 2 5/8 inches in diameter and at the most, a -3 length to weight ratio).  BBCOR bats are considered Adult baseball bats and carry the BBCOR .50 certification mark on their barrel or taper.... More information:

2. In-house Little League
Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball® will adhere to the new USABat standard. No bats previously approved for use in Little League Play (Junior League Baseball and below) will be permitted to be used in any Little League game or practice, or other Little League function, event, or activity.
Here is more information on the new standard: http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo/USA-Baseball-Bat-Standard-FAQs.htm

3. American Legion
American Legion is an all wood bat league requiring Ash or Maple wood bats only.
