2018 Fall Ball Season Information

2018 Fall Ball Season Information

 

Practice has started for our 2018 Fall Ball Season for Softball and Baseball. PSA wanted to go over a few details about the season with parents and players.

-We have made the teams as small as possible to allow all players as much playing time as possible. We need your help with this to ensure you have your player at all practices and games. If not, teams will be short players needed for the game.

-We will practice for 2 weeks, and then games will start on Monday October 1st. We will play on Mondays and Thursdays (except on week 2.) We will play on Monday and Tuesday due to the homecoming parade. Schedules are online. Each team will play 10 games (most age groups' last two games are pool play for seeding) and will finish with our End of Season Tournament on Saturday November 3rd. (There will be NO end of season tournament for 4-5 t-ball and 8U Softball) Note: 8U softball your scheudle is done you will also see on your schedule there are two days that say Softball Camp. This is a free camp we are working out your detials with your coaches. 

- There are no gate fees for any of these games EXCEPT for our End of Season Bracket Day on Saturday Nov 3rd. 

- We still have a few spots open if you know of anyone that still wants to play. If they are interested, have them call our office at 601-402-7299. 

- We are working on a plan for Fall Pictures for some of the age groups. Once we have that plan, we will let your coaches know about it.

-Our 15U Softball and our 13-15 Baseball will be traveling some to Oak Grove to play. Please represent PSA while traveling with good sportsmenship and behavior. We also expect this out of all Players, Coaches and Parents at our games in Petal as well. All season information including rules and polocies are posted online on the documents page.

We look forward to another great Fall Season. We are excited to have the largest Fall Season ever!!!!!

See everyone at the fields.

Understanding the New Bat Rules for Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth

 

USA Bat Update

The Easton Ghost X 30/20 2 5/8 has been decertified (no longer approved) by USA Baseball . This was not a decision made by PSA. Please read the following for information about a voucher through Easton if this has affected you.

Dear Cal Ripken Baseball and Babe Ruth Baseball Membership:

USA Baseball informed youth organizations, including Babe Ruth League, Inc., that effective immediately and until further notice, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8" (or the "Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8" at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard.

USABat: Easton Ghost X 30/20

Model Number(s): YBB18GX10 30/20 (D: 2 5/8), LL18GHX 30/20 (D: 2 5/8)

Length: 30" (-10)

All other certified lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X USABat remain approved for play.

For any family or league that is impacted by USA Baseball's decertification of the Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8, we strongly urge you to read Easton's release, which includes information about how to return your bat to receive a $500 voucher for Easton.com.

Again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and thank you all for your attention to this matter.

 

Sincerely,

 

Steven M. Tellefsen

President/CEO, Babe Ruth League, Inc.

New Bat Rules for Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth

There have been a lot of bat rules questions sent to us and we wanted to help clear some things up 

Image result for USABAT

Above is the Stamp you need to look for when buying a new bat

2018 Bat Rule Changes for PSA Baseball Recreational League

Cal Ripken Baseball Division - All non-wood bats must have USABat Marking. Barrel Maximum 2 5/8" Note this is the first year a 2 5/8" bat is legal in our 4-12 yr old divisions. However you can still get a 2 1/4" bat if you choose but, it must be USA Stamped. No BBCOR Bats are permitted in the Cal Ripken Division. For T-Ball, bats must be marked with USABat T-Ball Stamp. As long as the bat says T-Ball for our 4-6 yr old league it is fine, no need to get a sticker. If not marked t-ball it must be a USA Stamped bat. 

Babe Ruth 13-15 Division - All non-wood bats must have the USABat Marking or marked BBCOR .50. Bat Barrel - 2 5/8".

Babe Ruth 16-18 Division - All non-wood bats must be BBCOR .50 and no greater than -3. Bat Barrel - 2 5/8".


Note: Solid one piece wood bats are permitted for use in all divisions and must conform to Rule 1.10. No laminated or experimental bats shall be used in a game.

Bottom line is in most cases the bat you used last year is NO longer legal and you must get the new bat. This is not a league decision, almost all different brands of baseball have gone to this new rule.

SELECT BASEBALL- GSSA will not go to this rule until August 1, 2018 so your old bat, you had if you played Select Baseball, is still legal for SELECT TOURNAMENTS but, not for the League Games.

 

Please read before you buy a new bat!!!!

Implementation of USABat Standard Begins on January 1, 2018
