The 2018 post-season has officially ended as the Patriot American All Star team fell short of victories during the Junior Southern California Division III Tournament in Thousand Oaks, CA. However, it was not before the team displayed much grit and strong determination during two, hard fought and exciting games against some tough opponents. The Patriot American team may have not won on the field these last two games, but they definitely succeeded in stealing our hearts during the tournament!

The first game on Sunday, July 15th was against East Fullerton and was played on the beautiful George "Sparky" Anderson Field at Cal Lutheran University. It was an awesome and unique experience for the team to play in this large stadium setting - as for their fans, it was an equally awesome and unique experience. The score volleyed back and forth and was tied 6-6 in the 4th inning. It remained that way until the bottom of the 12th inning at which time East Fullerton scored a heart-wrenching run and took the victory. The team battled throughout the game and it was a tough loss, but in true Patriot League fashion they respectfully accepted their fate of falling into the "Loser's Bracket," and bounced back quickly from the loss by going into the next game with positive attitudes.

The second game was played against Lemon Grove at Conejo Creek Ballpark on Thursday, July 19th. This game appeared to be slipping away quickly from the Patriots as Lemon Grove took an early lead. By the end of the 4th inning Lemon Grove held an 8-4 lead over the Patriots. However, the Patriots once again displayed their "never give up" spirit and started chipping away at the score by adding three runs in the bottom of the 6th. Then, in the bottom of the 7th with two outs, the Patriots excitedly pushed across the tying run taking another game into extra innings. The game remained that way until the top of the 9th inning when Lemon Grove scored a run. The Patriots were unable to score in the bottom of the inning, so the 9- 8 victory went to Lemon Grove, and eliminated the Patriot American team from the tournament.

Another congratulations goes to the team for being the D33 and Section 6 Champions, and for being such fine representatives for the Patriot League during the Southern California Division III Tournament. The team was not only respectful of all their opponents, but they also earned their respect in return. Each player displayed quality sportsmanship, worked hard, and was supportive of one another from the very beginning. The bond the players created between each other as individuals and as a team was special, and the memories they created throughout this entire experience will last them a lifetime. It was an amazing journey for the players, manager, coaches, parents, and all the fans who supported them along the way. As a league we are all exceptionally proud of the Patriot American team for their accomplishments, and for taking us along on this wonderful journey!

New Little League Bat Standards

Updated 2/16/18

Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented.  Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018.

 

Recently, USA Baseball has provided Little League and other youth organizations with some additional guidance on how organizing bodies, like Little League International, can make it easier for local leagues, volunteers, and players to use bats within our programs. We encourage you to review their FAQs at USABat.com, as well as the information on LittleLeague.org/BatInfo

 

Effective immediately (Thursday, February 15, 2018), Little League has amended Rule 1.10 for Little League Baseball for the Coach Pitch/Machine Pitch Divisions and the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division and Junior League, to reflect this guidance from USA Baseball. Read the fully updated Rule 1.10 on LittleLeague.org

  

The following is a summary of the rule update that affects our (Patriot) league, though I highly recommend you follow the links above as well, to read more: 

Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division and Junior League 

In addition to using bats approved for Little League play based on the USABat Standard, players in these two divisions can also choose to use bats that have been approved and appropriately certified using the BBCOR standard. All bats not made of a single piece of wood shall meet the Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) performance standard, and such bats shall be so labeled with a silkscreen or other permanent certification mark. The certification mark shall be rectangular, a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color. Aluminum/alloy and composite bats shall be marked as to their material makeup being aluminum/alloy or composite. This marking shall be silkscreen or other permanent certification mark, a minimum of one-half-inch on each side, and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color.
