WYBSL Spring Equipment Swap!

WYBSL Equipment Swap!

Do you have old baseball and softball equipment you want to get rid of?  Tired of buying new equipment for each baseball and softball season or looking for some spares?  Swap your child’s clean gently used gloves, helmets, bats, and cleats for equipment that is the next size!

Bring your gently used equipment to the Graniteville field and take home “new to you” equipment.  There is no charge and you do not have to donate equipment to participate.  

Dates:   Saturday, April 6th(rain or shine)
Time:     10:00 am – 12:00 pm 
Where:  Graniteville Field

What items can be donated:

  • SOFTBALL bats (metal bats only)
  • BASEBALL bats (metal bats only)
    • Only baseball bats having the official USA Baseball stamp will be accepted.
  • fielding gloves
  • cleats (plastic only)
  • batting helmets
  • rip-its (softball fielder's masks)
  • bags
  • catchers equipment (chest protectors, shin guards, gloves)

If you have a donation you would like to drop off prior to the swap, please email wybslswap@gmail.com for drop off location information.

Any equipment left at the end of the swap will be donated to Jordan’s Furniture Double Play program which donates baseball and softball equipment to inner-city youth (or held over for next season's swap). 

(Cleats should be clearly labeled with the size and tied together by the shoelaces.  Please shake off and wipe down any loose dirt.   If you are donating equipment and are able to drop off the equipment at the beginning of the swap that will be helpful to get things started.)

Thank you!

WYBSL

Official 2018 Cal Ripken / Babe Ruth Bat Rules

New Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth Bat Rules

Below is an important update regarding the upcoming Babe Ruth / Cal Ripken bat rule changes which become effective on January 1, 2018.  

 

General Information:

The full set of new bat rules can be found on the Babe Ruth Baseball website at the following link: https://baberuthleague.org/bat-rules.aspx

The rule changes as applied to WYBSL are as follows:

  • Small diamond baseball (Tee Ball - U12) - Any bats that are not stamped compliant with the USA Baseball stamp will be illegal and cannot be used in WYBSL.
  • Softball (Pre softball - 18U) - No change to approved bats. Legal bats in 2017 remain legal in 2018.
  • Big diamond baseball (U13 - 15) - Both the new USA standard and the BBCOR .50 are approved for 2018.

In addition, since some of our rec league members participate in the New England Elite Baseball League (EBL) / Minuteman, the new bat rules as applied to that league are as follows:

  • 8U-13U - Starting January 1st, 2018 all bats will need to have the USA stamp on it. BBCOR bats can be used at these levels too.
  • 14U - Divisions 1, 1A & 2 will now be a BBCOr league. (BBCOr bats do not have the USA stamp on them). All bats must have the BBCOr stamp on it, these bats are all -3.

 Further details regarding the EBL bat rule changes can be found on the EBL website at the following link: http://www.thefarmbpi.com/

 

WYBSL Bat Replacement

Since WYBSL is a chartered Babe Ruth organization it will adhere to the new bat rules.  While the large majority of our players purchase their own bats, we will discard all league baseball bats and replace them on a limited basis for each division from the Tee Ball through U12 divisions.  Additional bats may be purchased as needed during the season.  Otherwise, parents should feel free to purchase bats meeting the new rules at this time.

 

Thanks in advance for your cooperation concerning these new and important rules.
