2017 Little League Bat Regulations (don't buy a bat until you read this!)
Not all bats are legal to use in Little League in 2017, and further restrictions will be going into place in 2018.

Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
  1. AEDs at NELL are designed to be used by anyone – they provide step-by-step voice prompt instruction.
  2. They can be used on adults and children.
  3. Defibrillation within three minutes of sudden cardiac arrest increases the chances of survival to 70 percent.  Shock within one minute of collapse raises the survival rate to 90 percent.

General Bat Safety
Little League Rule 1.08: THERE IS NO ON DECK BATTER
The ONLY player permitted to swing a bat is the batter up to the plate.
Neither outside the dugouts, nor inside the fenced dugouts, should any player be swinging a bat.

Coaches, Managers and Parents:   Please assist each other in keeping an eye out.  As discussed in our safety briefing, the batting team is often focused on the field with no one to monitor the dugout behind him.   The opposing team manager is asked to stop play to politely correct any player swinging a bat in or near the dugouts.
Lack of supervision can result in this:  dontswingposter.pdf

- Wait 30 minutes before returning to play after last sign of lightning activity in your area.
