Former Lockport LL Coach in Regionals
by Master Admin posted 08/11/2017

Former Lockport Little League Coach Matt Eisenhower and his Ketchikan Alaska Majors team won the Alaska State Championship and were competing in the Northwest Regionals in San Bernadino CA. Even though they were eliminated it was a dream come through for Matt and his team.

Matt was instrumental in bringing Little League Baseball & Softball to Springville NY back in January of 2009 and then moved in Lockport NY the following season. Matt coached in Lockport Little League back in 2010 with his three boys Josh then age 11, Nate age 10 and Caleb age 5. Matt left Lockport to join the military as a Chaplin in Texas and is now residing in Alaska.

Visit www.littleleague.org to view a 38 second video that shows Matt talking to his pitcher after giving up back to back home runs in the Regionals. This is a great watch!

Congrats to Matt Eisenhower and his team on a great run!

2018 Bat Standards
by Master Admin posted 07/12/2017


With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. 

DURHAM, N.C. -- USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the U.S., in conjunction with participating national member organizations announced today the decision to adopt a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats. Informed by the research of leading scientists on the USA Baseball Bat Study Committee, and supported by its NMOs, -- including the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball, Little League Baseball and PONY Baseball -- USA Baseball has concluded that recent advancements in science, engineering, technology, and the materials available to fabricate non-wood bats, now allow the manufacturers to construct youth bats that can perform at a wood-like level through the entire range of lengths and weights of youth bats.

The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat), which will apply to bats that are classified below the NCAA and NFHS level of play, will be implemented on January 1, 2018, allowing the bat manufacturers sufficient time to bring these bats to the marketplace.

"USA Baseball is pleased, with the support of our participating national member organizations, to announce the USABat standard," said USA Baseball's executive director/CEO, Paul Seiler. "Beginning with the launch in 2018, we will take another step forward in making our game more uniform at the youth level and ensuring the long-term integrity of the game."

How will I know which bat to buy?
All new bats that bear the USABat licensing mark will be permissible for play in the leagues and tournaments of the participating youth baseball organizations. Below is the logo that must be displayed.
