Congratulations to both the Rookie Giants and Minor Braves on winning their division championship games last week!
Majors division championship game was suspended on Saturday. Game is tied 1-1, going into top 3rd inning. Re-scheduled for Monday 5/21, 6pm at DP.
On Thursday, May 3, USA Baseball informed youth organizations, including Little League, that effective immediately, 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. This applies to the 30-inch drop 10 variation of the Easton Ghost X only. Pursuant to Rule 1.10, this is now an illegal bat. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play.
All parents, coaches, and umpires must check their bats and remove these bats from play if they are in possession of these bats.
Any questions regarding returns, refunds, or warranty claims for the Easton Ghost X 30/20 should be directed to Easton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit USABat.com/Decertified-Bats for more information.
More information on how the USABat Standard impacts Little League can be found at LittleLeague.org/BatInfo.

Youth baseball bats will be undergoing some changes for the 2018 seasons. Effective January 1, 2018, USA Baseball (the governing body for Little League Baseball) will implement their new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats. The new USA Baseball bat standard, or USABat, will allow youth baseball organizations to reach their goal of wood-like bat performance in order to preserve the long-term integrity of the game, as well as instill a sense of uniformity among leagues.
Delaney Park Little League is required to adhere to the new standard. As such, the league will be providing every team in all baseball divisions (except tee ball) with two compliant “team bats” - players are NOT required to have their own bats, but if they do, they must be compliant with the new standard as well. The new bat standard is NOT applicable to any Softball divisions.
Tee Ball bats will be considered compliant to the new standard with the addition of a sticker from USA Baseball. The league has already purchased these stickers and will distribute through Spring season coaches.
Little League® International has assembled an online resource page dedicated to baseball bat information, that includes the latest bat information, current Little League Baseball rules and regulations governing bats, definition of terms, and a series of frequently asked questions, along with answers, and a linked page listing compliant bats (usabat).
DPLL recognizes that many players do want to have their own bat, and that some families use the holidays as a time to purchase new bats. Please note that many stores are currently selling last year's non-compliant models at deeply discounted prices. These non-compliant bats will NOT be allowed for play in 2018 and beyond (starting with our Spring season).
To identify officially-sanctioned youth bats, look for the “USA Baseball” licensing mark, located on the taper.
Delaney Park Little League is a volunteer run organization, and our continued success relies on it's existing and new volunteers. From managing, to coaching to running concessions - there's plenty of opportunity for everyone to help. Please consider giving your time to help make DPLL a great place to play ball.
ALL Volunteers - concession workers, managers, coaches, directors, etc. - who are in contact with a child are required to complete the registration and submit to a background check. Volunteer applications are required to be completed 1x each year per LL rules.
Managers/coaches, even if you've coached previously, are required to register as a coach to be considered for an on-field position each season.
Answers to most general questions and more detailed information about our league, divisions, and seasons can all be found on the FAQ page. Please review the information there first for quick answers. Should you still have questions, Email us and a league volunteer will reply as soon as possible. The league does not maintain a phone number.
