You may have heard the recent news of a 9-year old boy in Charlestown being hit in the chest causing his heart to stop. While these incidents are fortunately very rare, this is a good opportunity to remind everyone that we do have an automatic defibrillator (AED) in the concession stand, should such an event happen at our fields.
AEDs are designed to be very easy to use as they walk you through their use step by step. Part of our coach safety meeting each year includes an overview on the use of the AED. If you’re interested in learning more about using an AED, you can find various instructional videos online. AEDs are becoming common in many public buildings, so having some familiarity with them is a good idea.
While the AED is a great resource to have on hand, the first thing to do in an emergency is call 911 to get trained professionals on site as quickly as possible.
As some of you may be looking at wish lists that include new baseball bats, we wanted to share information regarding new bat rules that will go into effect for the 2018 season. With this new rule, any bats that are currently approved for the 2017 season with a "Little League Approved" designation will not be allowed beginning in 2018. Bats conforming to the new standard are not available yet and will not be available until sometime in mid to late 2017. Please keep this in mind if you are shopping for a new bat as anything you buy now will only be good for one season. (This is a Little League and USA Baseball rule change, we are just the messenger.)
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.
Starting on January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Standard will be implemented across all Little League baseball divisions and Little League-approved bats will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity.
You are reminded that tobacco use of any kind is not allowed within 25' of any ball field, dugout, or fan seating/viewing area; anywhere between Community and Memorial Field, including the batting cages; or within 50' of the concession stand or pavilion/grill area.
Anyone smoking in the parking lots or other areas not explicitly prohibited above are asked to please clean-up after yourself and not leave cigarette butts on the ground.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated for the cleanliness of our fields and the health of our kids.
