If you know Dan Glynn, you know that he is the first person to stand up and do something for someone in need. He always puts everyone else first and is truly one of the most generous people we have ever met.  As president of Killingworth Youth League, Dan has given countless hours of his life to the children of his community as well as those in surrounding towns. He was instrumental in the rebuilding of Sheldon Park, the premier, youth baseball and softball complex in the area. Even though he has no children playing for the league, he continues to help in any way that he can. While he has stepped down as president, Dan regularly asks if there is anything he can do to help. Now, Dan Glynn needs our help.  

Please help us in our effort to support Dan Glynn. There are two ways that you can donate:

 

1. Donations are being accepted through our Gofund me page by clicking here.

2. Checks payable to KYL can be mailed to :

P.O. Box 714

(Please write Dan Glynn in subject line)

2018 Bat Standards

2018 Baseball Bat Standard: What You Need to Know

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 bat standard (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 Little League’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®.
