Youth baseball finds safety in new bats, but at a price
Organizations are being mandated to switch to bats that perform like wood, which make hit balls slower. But it's a whole new expense.


...“It’s being done for safety. It’s slowing down the ball off the bat,” said Randy MacWhinnie, the president of Westbrook Little League.

The new bat rule went into effect Jan. 1. It has been adopted by most of the national youth baseball organizations, including Little League and Cal Ripken. The rule requires all bats used in games and practices to have the USA Baseball stamp.

USA Baseball, the governing body for amateur baseball, determined that separate testing and standards were needed for younger players because of the different characteristics of the ball, the players and skill levels.

Ellsworth Little League set to begin 1st season of play

...Given Ellsworth’s status as home to one of the top leagues in Downeast Maine, getting a new charter and filling out the paperwork was easy with the help of the old board members. Since then, the league’s primary task has been moving on from the transition phase and preparing for the season ahead.

“Most of what’s been done early on has been focused on fundraising, administrative and safety stuff,” League Marketing Manager Lyndsy Clough said. “We correspond daily and have been meeting more and more frequently as the season gets closer.”

Although the name and charter for the league are new, much has stayed the same. Ellsworth Little League will draw players from the same boundaries as DEFY Little League, and the team will continue to face off against teams from Machias, Bar Harbor, Blue Hill and other areas throughout Downeast Maine.
