NEW RULES FOR LITTLE LEAGUE BATS THIS SPRING - Use this link for the 2018 rules for Little League baseball and softball bats.
Dear Little League Parents and Volunteers,
On Thursday, May 3, USA Baseball informed youth organizations, including Little League, that effective immediately, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8" (or the "Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8" at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30-inch drop 10 variation of the Easton Ghost X ONLY. Pursuant to Rule 1.10, this is now an illegal bat. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play.
All parents, coaches, and umpires must check their bats and remove these bats from play if they are in possession of these bats.
Any questions regarding returns, refunds, or warranty claims for the Easton Ghost X 30/20 should be directed to Easton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit USABat.com/Decertified-Bats for more information.
More information on how the USABat Standard impacts Little League can be found at LittleLeague.org/BatInfo.
JOHN C. TAYLOR, eighth President of Pearl River Little League, passed away on March 6, 2018. Please open this link for the memorial page.
PRLL MOURNS THE LOSS OF BOB VITALE
Bob Vitale, a key PRLL volunteer for over 25 years, passed away on Monday, January 15, after a two-year battle with cancer. The right-hand man to six PRLL presidents, Bob was also instrumental in the formation and 14-year success of the Kayser-Brady Tournament, hosted by PRLL each July.
Bob is the second huge loss to the League in four months, with George Doonan having passed last September. They are pictured together in the photo on the left, taken at the 2015 Kayser-Brady Tournament.
With overwhelming sadness, we must inform you of the passing of GEORGE DOONAN, long-time Voice of Pearl River Little League, on September 13, 2017. A truly humble gentleman who gave of himself quietly and without ever seeking credit, George served Little League youth for decades as an umpire, and then as an announcer. He will be genuinely and sorely missed. We are thankful that we had the honor of knowing him. Rest in peace, George.
SEE THE "GEORGE DOONAN" TAB ON THE TOP MENU FOR THE OBITUARY TEXT.
ADDENDUM: ON DECEMBER 6, 2017, GEORGE DOONAN WAS INDUCTED, POSTHUMOUSLY, INTO THE ROCKLAND COUNTY DISTRICT 18 VOLUNTEER UMPIRE HALL OF FAME
Due to the construction that is taking place on the property adjacent to the Anderson complex, EVERYONE must park at Verizon. The only exceptions to this will be those cars with a Handicapped parking placard and any senior citizens that will be coming to watch games (only if space permits).
SAFETY NOTE: All children must remain on the PRLL property whenever they are at the Anderson complex and cannot play on Verizon property, or near the construction site.
