Thanks to everyone for making the 2017 Opening Weekend a huge success. Even though the weather wasn’t the best, all events were able to take place. Thanks to all the Board members and Committee Leads for all your hard work. Without you volunteering your time and skills, this event does not happen. A special thanks goes out to Paul Wagner (Base Knox), the Optimist Group and the volunteers for making this event special to all the participants.
As you are out shopping for new equipment remember per Cal Ripken big barrel bats are NOT allowed. Bats need to be 2 1/4 and not longer then 33 inches. BPF cannot be greater then 1.15.
There will be no changes this year to the bat rules we have been playing under. All bats must be 2 ¼ inch in diameter and be stamped with the 1.15BPF stamp to be legal.
The Green Bay Eastside Baseball Leagues (Minors and Majors Divisions) will adopt the new bat standard. These bats will be stamped with a stamp. These bats will not be available until late 2017. Our intent is to allow both the old and new bats for the 2018 Summer baseball season to allow families to ease into the new rules.
It is important to understand that these rules are for the Green Bay Eastside Baseball League and do not necessarily apply to tournaments if you child participates in any travel baseball.
2018 Guideline (Source: Easton Bat Company):
The bats currently on the market, which are marked with a 1.15BPF stamp, will no longer be legal for play in these leagues.
All current model Easton bats marked with the 1.15BPF stamp will be allowed in USSSA play for all events extending beyond January 1, 2018.
Additionally, beginning on January 1, 2018, under the new USA Baseball rule, all players 14 and under (not including Tee-Ball) will be able to use approved USA Baseball 2-5/8" barrels in Little League, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, PONY, Dixie, AABC, and AAU youth baseball.
All games for Monday, May 1st are cancelled due to poor field conditions.
