Softball!

We are excited to offer softball this spring! Our goal is to run two levels in 2018:

12-Under Girls Softball (for kids ages 11-12)

10-Under Girls Softball (for kids ages 8-10)

We will form teams based on age and ability levels and expect to play teams from Northern Berkshire during the spring, similar to our baseball program. The Church Street ballfield at WES has been rebuilt and will act as our first-choice softball field.

 

The Vision

Our programs have always been great for both girls and boys. We encourage every kid to start playing ball in our Grant League as early as 4 years of age, then progress to our Rookies, Minors and Majors programs. Now, girls have the opportunity to choose softball beginning at age 8, or to continue playing in our baseball leagues (Rookies, Minors, Majors).

 

Call for Support

We are recruiting supporters for our Softball program. There is a need for parents to help by coaching, or by providing organizational leadership. Most of all, we need parents to express interest in the program, so that we are better prepared to work out planning and logistics (such as the number of teams and equipment).

 

To volunteer or express your support for Softball, please contact Allen Hall ( ).

New Bat Rules for 2018

NEW BASEBALL BAT REQUIREMENTS
FOR 2018

 

USA Baseball has created a new bat standard that will be used by the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball, Little League Baseball and PONY Baseball in 2018.  This new standard requires that baseball bats be marked with the USA Baseball stamp.  This means all the non-T-Ball bats will be ineligible for local or tournament use in 2018 in Cal Ripken Baseball.  Existing T-Ball bats are required to have a USA Baseball T-Ball Stamp in 2018.

This new bat requirement is driven by the desire for consistency in bat performance and to have the aluminum and composite bats perform like wood bats.
