Central Connecticut State University vs. Fairleigh Dickinson University

Central Connecticut Softball Field
On Sunday, April 30, Central Connecticut State Softball would like to invite you and your Little Leaguers to attend the “Little League Softball Day.” The doubleheader will be held at the home field of the Blue Devils of Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, at 1:00 PM, when the Blue Devils take on their Northeast Conference rivals, the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights.
In order to promote Little League Softball, as well as the college softball experience, Little League® Baseball and Softball has worked with various colleges and universities resulting in these institutions providing a “Little League Softball Day” at the collegiate level. It is on this day that young athletes of all ages will get to experience the game of softball at its finest. They will have the complete game-day experience, from the warm up to the game-ending play.
A “Little League Softball Day” is designed to share what the opportunity of participating in Little League Softball can potentially lead to, while also providing a generous amount of exposure to the participating colleges and universities. This event also assists in establishing an on-going relationship between the local collegiate programs and their surrounding Little Leagues.
The Little League players, parents and chaperones may attend the game at no charge. Little League players should wear their uniform shirt with the Official Little League patch sewn onto the left shoulder of their uniform shirt in order to be identified. If possible, please email me with your estimated attendance figures.
National Anthem buddies
After the second game, the Little League players will have an opportunity to talk and meet with the Blue Devils. Little Leaguers can ask the college players questions directly and receive autographs.
On behalf of Little League Baseball and Softball, I urge you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Starting on January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Standard will be implemented across all Little League baseball divisions and Little League‐approved bats will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity. More details, as they become available, will be provided below.
Testing and evaluating of youth baseball bats has evolved into a science. So much so that the standard has also evolved to where USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the United States, is adopting a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats that will go into effect on January 1, 2018. The new USA Baseball batstandard (USABat), was developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts.
Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball® will adhere to the new USABat standard. No bats previously approved for use in Little League Play (Junior League Baseball and below) will be permitted to be used in any Little League game or practice, or other Little League function, event, or activity.
What this means for local Little Leagues, and Little League baseball players in the Tee Ball through Junior League Divisions, as well as Little League Challenger Division®, is that all current Little League-approved bats can be used during the 2017 Little League regular season and throughout tournament play, but can no longer be used starting in 2018. All of LittleLeague’s current bat regulations will remain in effect until December 31, 2017. Be aware that this new bat standard effects Little League Baseball only. There are no changes to the bat standard or regulations for Little League Softball®.
