BATS: A reminder that although we are wood-bat leagues, we banned maple bats in 2009 because there had been too many instances of portions of broken maple bats flying out onto the field. Bamboo bats are still not permitted. Three makes of composite bats are currently approved by Minor League Baseball for the short-season A and rookie leagues, and therefore, are approved for use in our leagues: Baum, Hoosier (3 piece) and DeMarini models D 110, D 243 and D 271. While DeMarini composites are part maple, we are assuming that they will have the same "bat life" as the Baum, and more importantly, if and when they break, they will not put pitchers or corner infielders in jeopardy.
Do not buy the ROCB or the Wilson 1030, the college baseballs. Those balls have been deadened in a failed attempt to compensate for high-teach metal bats and will not be permitted in our leagues. Also Babe Ruth & High School baseballs are not permitted. Approved baseballs include (note numbers): Wilson A1010 Pro, Diamond D1-Pro DS, AD Starr 600 (Pro Series) and Champro CML-100.
We’ve tried to stay away from tourneys because leagues often end up with the tail wagging the dog, i.e., tailoring the league schedule so that one or two teams can go to a tourney. We still won’t do that, but to keep our insurance through NABF, we will have to send at least one team to a regional.
