Bat Update for 2015

Can a bat with a 2 1/4 inch barrel be used in Junior League Baseball and Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division?

A: Yes, but not all 2 1/4 inch bats can be used. If a bat’s barrel has no composite materials in it, it may be used in the Junior League Baseball and the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Divisions, provided it is labeled with a BPF (bat performance factor) of 1.15 or less, and meets the standards for length, handle diameter, etc. But if the bat has composite materials in the barrel, a 2 1/4-inch barrel MAY NOTbe used; only a 2 5/8-inch BBCOR bat may be used.
 
Rule 1.10 – Baseball -
The bat must be a baseball bat which meets Little League specifications and standards as noted in this rule. It shall be a smooth, rounded stick and made of wood or of material and color tested and proved acceptable to Little League standards.
Little League (Majors) and below:
It shall not be more than thirty-three (33) inches in length nor more than two and one-quarter (2¼) inches in diameter. Non-wood bats shall be labeled with a BPF (bat performance factor) of 1.15 or less;
EXCEPTION: For the Little League (Majors) and below, for regular season play and Tournament, composite bats are prohibited unless approved by Little League International. View the list of approved and licensed composite bats.
Intermediate (50-70) Division and Junior League
It shall not be more than 34 inches in length; nor more than 2 5/8 inches in diameter, and if wood, not less than fifteen-sixteenths (15/16) inches in diameter (7/8 inch for bats less than 30”) at its smallest part. All composite barrel bats shall meet the Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) performance standard, and such bats shall be so labeled with a silkscreen or other permanent certification mark. The certification mark shall be rectangular, a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color.
 
Thanks

What is the WBLL Blue Crew?!?

It is the group of volunteer umpires that donate their time to umpiring the youth of West Boynton Little League. It is approximately 30 members strong and growing.

It is a group of highly-trained umpires under the direction of Michael Staie, Umpire-In-Chief.

It has a Junior Umpire Program that is second to none. WBLL Blue Crew Junior Umpires range from 11 to 16. They earn Bright Future and community service hours. They proudly wear the red T-Shirt with the WBLL Umpire emblem.

The Blue Crew hosts  umpire training clinics at various times throughout the year. They train their volunteers to be the best.

 

The Blue Crew has the knowledge of the rules of Little League and the strong backing of an excellent board of directors.

They are a proud group. They are a sharp-looking group. They are here to support Little League and Fair Play. Please check out the umpire section of Little Leagues website at www.littleleague.org for information on registering to be an official Little league umpire.

Little League® does not recommend any particular color shirt as its official umpiring shirt. However, the shirt chosen by each league, district, etc. should be uniform in make/style and color for all umpires. WBLL will utilizeDark Blue with Red and White trim for Night games and Light Blue with Blue and White trim for day games.There are many places on-line where shirts can be purchased. Honigs below has a distribution center in Fort Lauderdale if you don’t want to wait for or pay for shipping.
 
A comfortable undergarment should be worn beneath the shirt to absorb perspiration.
 
The correct colored undershirt should be worn as well. Red under shirt for the dark Blue shirt and dark Blue under shirt for the light Blue shirt.
 
Shirts should be clean and neatly pressed. The appropriate Little League® Umpire patch should be affixed to the left sleeve.
Plate shirts should normally be one size larger than the base shirt to allow a comfortable fit over the inside chest protector.
 
Little League® recommends that umpire’s wear gray pants. There are many styles and shades of gray pants, WBLL will be utilizing Heather Gray pants. They can be found at the same websites listed above for shirts. Pants should be clean and neatly pressed.
