JR GHOSTS TAKES HOME THE TITLE!

 

What a terrific tournament!  The Westford Junior Ghosts came in looking for their first ever tournament championship…a lofty goal for a team all from the small town of Westford Massachusetts! They started their run on Friday night in Northborough against a scrappy GBG Hawks team.  After a slow start, the Ghosts bats burst into life putting up 12 runs in just two innings.  Starting pitcher Tyler Eliasen pitched 3 no hit innings and the Ghosts won game one 12-0.

Game two came on Saturday night against Fury Navy.  This was a terrific game under the lights at Sawyer Park.  In the end Fury Navy took it 7-5, but this wouldn’t be the last meeting for these two teams. The loss on Saturday dropped the Westford Ghosts to 1-1 and that meant they had a steep climb if they wanted to capture the championship…they would have to win 3 games in 8 hours on Sunday to do it.

First up…the SM River Rats…a tight game early but the Ghost bats caught fire again.  JJ Funaro got a complete game victory on the mound and Tournament MVP Owen Boyer went 3-3 with 6 RBI's and the Ghost won going away 10-3.

Next up, NE Hurricanes Salisbury…On just two days rest, Tyler Eliasen pitched another gem…a complete game 1 hitter with 6 strikeouts for his second win of the tourney! Jack Janowsky went 3 for 3 with 3 RBI's while Billy Chiasson, David Burke and Ben Durgin all contributed 2 hits each in the 10-1 victory.

Finally, the championship game, and how fitting, the Ghosts had to face the one team who managed to beat them, Fury Navy.  Navy advanced to the championship thanks to a walk- off win in the semi finals.  Fury jumped out to a quick 3-1 lead after 2 innings and, once again, it looked like they had the Ghosts number.  The Ghosts would not be beaten on this day though…they scored 7 runs in the next 3 innings thanks to key hits from Ryan Snow and Cooper Durgin.  Championship game MVP Billy Chiasson got the win on the mound while Nic Bonica came in for the save, which included an amazing 1-2-3 double play to seal the win!

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.
