Wood bat rule change; We are changing the the rule regarding bat restrictions for all of our wood bat events.  The rule will be stated on the website as; Wood bat only. Bats must be composed of a single piece of wood with the exception of the composite wood bats attached on the bat restriction page of the tournament rules. The easiest explanation of this change is that we are going to allow Baum Bats and Rawlings Composite wood bats.  All other bats must be composed of a single piece of wood.  The list may be updated further in the future.

 We are also going to change what the ruling is on using an illegal bat.  If a batter steps in the box with an illegal bat and the umpire sees the illegal equipment, that player will be called out.  If the player uses an illegal bat, was not seen by the umpire, and the other team protests; the result of the play will be an out. 

Thank you for your commitment and dedication. Umpiring at any level is about a commitment to growth in every game you work. Please make a commitment to becoming the best umpire you can possibly be, every time you walk on a field. Remember every game is important to the participant's. Please be professional in all aspects your job. Lets have a great 2016!Thanks Again!
