New Bat Rule
The Green Bay East Side Baseball League (Minors and Majors) will implement the new Cal Ripken Bat Rule effective for the upcoming 2018 Spring/Summer Season.
All bats must have the USA stamp you see below on the handle to be used. There will be no exceptions to this rule. All players are covered by insurance provided by Cal Ripken and therefore we must follow their rules. BBCOR and bats that are stamped USSSA will not be allowed.
Bats should be clearly marked with the new stamp, but be sure to ask a store/website associate if you're unsure. Please click the Dick's Sporting Goods link below for coupons that include 10% off any bat purchase!
Don't forget to purchase your tickets for the annual Green Bay East Side Youth Baseball night out with the Bull Frogs. For $15 your child will receive a ticket to the game, Bull Frogs Baseball Hat, hot dog, and drink.
Reserve your tickets now by completing and returning the attached flyer to Brad Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mailing your completed order form and check to 3560 Spyglass Hill Dr Green Bay, WI 54311
All orders due by June 8th.
