2018 Indoor Winter League

We are now registering teams for the upcoming indoor winter league for 2018. The season will start at the end of January/beginning of February and run through March. Please note, no medals or trophies will be awarded.  Age levels will be determined by the player’s age as of May 1, 2018.

Bat Restrictions:

  • 15, 16 year olds – Wood Bats Only (Bamboo/laminates are allowed, but not composites)
  • 13, 14 year olds – BBCOR Bats or Wood Bats (Bamboo/laminates are allowed, but not composites)
  • 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 year olds- New LL Standard Bats Only (USABat stamped) or Wood Bats (Bamboo/laminates are allowed, but not composites)

This is a change from year’s past. In an effort to give players an opportunity to get accustomed to the new bat standards for 2018, we are allowing the use of non-wood bats so long as they comply with the above restrictions.

16U League – The 16U program will use 60′-6″ ft mounds/80-90 ft bases with full lead-offs, pick-offs, and steals.  This league will  play twelve games, set up as double-headers on every other Saturday afternoon. Pitching will be limited to three innings per day per pitcher. This is our first year for 16U. We may need to move the bases to 80 ft due to limited outfield room, but will evaluate once we start. However, the mound will stay at 60′-6″ regardless.
