Composite bats

From Little League

November 29, 2010

Dear Little League Parents and Volunteers,

With the holiday shopping season upon us, we want to remind all that we are in the midst of a research effort with the University of Massachusetts (Lowell) to determine whether or not a moratorium will be placed on the use of composite 2¼-inch barreled baseball bats in the Little League Majors Division and below. We have already placed a moratorium on composite bats in the Junior League Baseball, Senior League Baseball, and Big League Baseball Divisions.

We anticipate making a decision on the use of composite 2¼-inch barreled baseball bats by Jan. 1, 2011, as promised in earlier communications on this subject.

Information on the moratorium on composite bats in the Junior League Baseball, Senior League Baseball, and Big League Baseball Divisions, as well as information on specific models of composite bats that have received a waiver of that moratorium, can be found here:

We encourage local league officials to provide this message to parents and volunteers in the local league.

How to drive through the ball.

This is one of the better explanations I've seen on how to drive through the ball. I've always taken baby steps with my teaching. Kid who arm swings, teach how to swivel the hips. Long swing, hands inside the ball as your hips rotate.  Knowing full well that they really need long term training with proper technique. 

Here is a video that explains how to rotate, when to, and why.

Safety First

From Little League corporate today I received this email...  Talk about a huge blow to the manufacturers.  Willing to bet there are some huge blowout sales coming up!!

"September 1, 2010
TO: Local Little League Presidents, District Administrators, and Regional Field Staff
FROM: Patrick W. Wilson, Vice President of Operations, Little League International
RE: Moratorium on Composite Bats in the Junior League, Senior League, and Big League Divisions of Baseball
A moratorium on the use of composite bats in the Junior, Senior, and Big League Baseball Divisions of Little League was enacted on Aug. 27, 2010, by the Little League International Board of Directors, effective immediately. The moratorium shall be in effect until further notice by Little League International.
The moratorium covers all games and practices only in the three divisions referenced above. It closely follows a similar moratorium approved in July 2010 by the National Federation of High School Associations (NFHS), based on a recommendation from its Baseball Rules Committee. The NFHS Board enacted a rule to prohibit the use of composite bats until they can produce consistent compliance with the standards through the life of the bat
Waivers of the moratorium may be considered by Little League International in certain circumstances. For 2011, a manufacturer may apply for a waiver of the moratorium for a particular model of composite bat if all of the requirements for a waiver, as established by Little League International, are satisfied. Composite bats that are certified by an approved independent testing laboratory as meeting the current Ball Exit Speed Ratio (BESR), and the Accelerated Break-In (ABI) procedure, will be eligible for the waiver in 2011. Little League International will provide a list of bat models, if any, that receive waivers of the moratorium.
Not covered under the Little League moratorium are wood bats, metal bats, or bats that have composite materials in the handle only. A composite bat is one that has a metal shell, but a woven composite of fibers on the inside of the barrel portion of the bat.
Currently, the moratorium on composite bats does not apply to the Little League Baseball (Majors) Division and below, nor does it apply to any division of softball. Little League International, in consultation with independent experts, anticipates being able to provide local league constituents clear direction regarding composite bats in the Little League Baseball (Majors) 12-and-under divisions, prior to the start of the 2011 season.

Vice President of Operations"

Speed isn't everything.

At the Major Little League level, through the MLB.  Keeping the batter off guard is as important as blowing it past them.  Case in point, I direct you to the RGJ blog today.

"Former Nevada standout Joe Inglett has been playing professional baseball for a decade but likely accomplished a first on Tuesday: the utility man tossed a scoreless inning in the Brewers' 12-4 loss to the Reds.

With Milwuakee's bullpen taxed and starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo getting knocked around early, Brewers coach Ken Macha turned to Inglett to pitch the ninth inning, and he delivered.

Inglett maxed out at 56 mph and his average pitch was 54 mph, but he still recorded a 1-2-3 inning, retiring Brandon Phillips, Orlando Cabrera and Joey Votto (two of whom have been All-Stars). The pitches registered as knuckeballs on the scoreboard because of the speed but Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy said they were just slow fastballs.

"I put down 'fastball' but they weren't fast," Lucroy told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "He was just flipping them in there. That's tough (for the hitter), coming in so slow. It's different seeing 50 (mph) and 90 (mph)."

"One, two, three. That's all I can say," Gallardo told of Inglett's effort. "I was pretty impressed. For him to go in there and get three outs, he made it seem easy."

In 64 games, Inglett is hitting .267 with 10 runs scores and 10 extra-base hits in 90 at-bats. "

The game or the experience?

What do 9-10 year olds remember? The game, the experience or both?

Last night was my son's championship game for the District 1 Renegades. Washoe LL vs. Sparks Centennial. A hard fought game between the teams with good pitching and hitting. Close game until the 5th inning when one team pulled away.

Then the mayhem.

Top of 6th, one out, runner on 1st from a nice base hit and the sprinklers come on. That's fine. Funny things like that happen in little league. So after about 10 minutes, granted it is 11:05PM and these are 9-10 yr olds, with both teams in the dugouts, and a packed stands, the lights turn off!

Still a funny event, just chaotic with zero visibility and siblings at a large park and no communication from the officials or umpires.

After 10 minutes of darkness, instead of getting everyone's attention and letting us know what was happening, the umpires walked over to the dugout and said something to the coaches letting them know they had won. The kids are going crazy, the parents/fans are scrambling to figure out what to do, the other team wasn't notified, no hand shaking or congratulations.

So instead of a ceremony of any sort, everyone is scrambling to find their equipment and meet under the street light next to the snack bar. Not exactly the winning experience.

So my question is, what will the kids take away from the experience? The game, the winning, or the chaos?

Rod Carew's hitting tips.

Rod Carew has a new product and website called the GAPHitter.

IMO, kind of a weak product but anything that gets kids swinging the bat with a moving target and I'm all for it.

But, Rod Carew is posting hitting tips on the site.

Here is the 10 important keys to hitting:

The Art & Science of Hitting by Rod Carew

Editor's Note:
Rod Carew was voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1991. He won seven American League batting titles and retired with 3,053 career hits. One of baseball's most sought-after hitting instructors, Carew has seen players such as Jim Edmonds, Garrett Anderson, Troy Glaus, Darin Erstad and Torii Hunter blossom under his watchful eye.
Rod’s useful hitting tips on becoming a great hitter will appear regularly 
In the 43 years since I debuted in Major League Baseball, I've watched thousands of great and not-so-great hitters. I've seen what works and what doesn't, and I've sought to understand the fundamentals of success and failure. I've spent thousands of hours experimenting, watching video tape and refining my own hitting techniques. In the end, I've developed a few basic beliefs, and 10 important keys to good hitting.

Do not fear the baseball. The greatest asset any hitter can have is to be fearless at the plate. You can't be afraid of being hit by the ball if you want to be a good hitter.

Stay within yourself. Know who you are as a hitter, your strengths and weaknesses, and play within your ability.

Use your hands. Become an “aggressive hands” hitter. This allows you to wait longer on the pitch and react to changes in pitch direction, both horizontally and vertically in the strike zone.

Be confident at the plate. Know what you want to do when you get up to home plate. Combine purpose and discipline. Control the confrontation, do what you want to do, not what the pitcher wants you to do.

Stay flexible. You can't be static in the batter's box. You must be able to keep your stance and outlook flexible enough to react to different pitches and situations.

Practice makes perfect. Work hard to hone your skills, to fine-tune fundamentals. Be willing to pay the price of success, to put in the time necessary to complete against those athletes who pride themselves on having a strong work ethic. Because Coach John Wooden says, “perfect practice makes perfect,” I like to teach on a training aid called The Game and Practice (GAP) Hitter.

Hit the ball where it's pitched. Learn to utilize the entire field, foul line to foul line. Learn to hit the ball pitched down the middle through the middle, to pull the inside pitch, to slap the outside pitch the other way.

Be aggressive. Swing to make solid contact, to hit through the baseball, remembering not to become so aggressive you begin swinging at bad pitches and start pulling the ball.

Develop a one-component swing. Strive to swing in one fluid motion, with all of your body parts functioning together. Avoid the step-turn-swing approach to hitting.

Stay in shape. Work year-round to get – and keep - your body in shape, to draw the most out of your physical abilities."

Long Toss programs

There are many long toss programs available.

I'm a big proponent of long toss for arm development and this video from Yaeger Sports emphasizes the important part of being loose and flexible.  Note:  It is a rapid progression in the video and should never be attempted by someone just starting out.

Put the ball in play.

This is an update from CBS Sportsline.

"Braves 2B Martin Prado is now 11 for 19 (.579) over his last four games. Prado went 3 for 5 on Wednesday against the Rays and has three three-hit games in his last four contests. He had two hits in the other one. Prado has four three-hit games in his last six. He's batting .338 on the year. Prado increased his NL hits lead to 95. "First of all, you've got to be patient," Prado said. "Just hit it somewhere. No secret."

I spent the whole year telling my team "When you put the ball in play, good things happen."  I don't care what level you are playing at, that saying applies.  "Just hit it somewhere. No secret."

Great give back to the community.

From the area in Northern California from which I came..

"In 2000 Leonhardt founded Leonhardt Vineyards a grower and producer of red wines in Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County, California ( In 2009 in their first try their wine won a Gold Medal at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. Leonhardt Vineyards provides a minimum of 25% of it's profits to charitable causes. They founded in 2009 Wine Country Old Fashioned Baseball League with 8 teams in Sonoma County and 4 team teams in Napa County ( 50% of the gate and concession profits from each game goes towards supporting local charitable causes. The league is working to secure 10% celebrity owners for each team to help bring attention to the charitable causes. Leonhardt Vineyards announced spring of 2010 a sponsorship relationship with the San Francisco Giants Baseball Club which includes two large panel advertisement boards behind home plate at the team's AT&T Park. Both the vineyard and the baseball league has booked a full page advertisement in the June issue of Wine Spectator."

50%!!!! of the gate goes towards a local charitable cause!! Wow. Play baseball, or watch as a fan, and help the local communities.. Incredible concept.

Endless summer?

Your season is either winding down or over already.  When it's over, does your bat and ball go into the garage only to be picked up next year?

What happened to endless summers and pickup games at the park?  Whiffle ball tournaments until it got hot then the river or pool followed by a home run derby into the darkness?  Over the line with your best bud and little brother?  Lefties having to go opposite field because the other guys were tired of switching for you?  Stirkeout with a tennis ball on the LL field when you were in Babe Ruth?

In this age of kid safety, endless training, one sport dedication and tournament teams, are our kids missing the most important things?  Like being a kid for the summer?

If this doesn't bring a tear to your eye.. You have no emotions..

Where is the Passion..

This is a guest post from a grade school buddy of mine Ron Lingron.    Ron was all passion and spitfire from age 5-..  still is at 40.  Especially on the field.  Still the only kid who knew I was going to pull a liner to Right Center every time I got up because that was my only swing...  Here's a copy of his post from Facebook..

Thanks Ron.. I've got a feeling that this is universal for our age of ex players..

"I grew up on the river. There it is. Forestville, CA. 30+ years before I got married and moved far far away to......Windsor. I played Little League there from the ages of 7 years until I was 15. I went to Forestville again last night, and the El Molino Little League fields where I cut my teeth playing the game. I drove out there and the first thing I noticed was there was no game and plenty of parking on the bottom portion of the park. This was unusual and kind of shook me up a little because I remember when there used to be five days worth of games during the week and more on Saturdays. Also, there were people out there who didn't live there when I did. Fair enough, as this was 25 years ago. I get it. Things change. What I didn't expect was I also saw people who were all too comfortable playing the PC game at the Little League field. NO COACHING ZONES. Pitch counts. Warnings? What happened to the Forestville Little League I knew? You know, the one with a full 6 teams per league that actually played baseball on weeknights with passionate parents, who were passionate enough to bring their kids from freaking TIMBER COVE to play on a Tuesday night. The Little League that actually played baseball opening day instead of doing a fundraiser? The one with teams like the Reds, A's, Indians, Dodgers and Tigers? I saw the River Cats play the Storm yesterday and had to shake my head as all of this started to add up. I actually told my wife I'd rather my 4 year old never play Little League and let's just get him a racecar and we'll race instead. This coming from a lifelong baseball fan who also was pretty damn good at the game to the point of having his picture on the wall at El Molino High School. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? 

I gotta admit, playing Little League to me was a rite of passage. One year, I was in orange, the next, when I turned 13, I was in blue. The teammates changed and you realized nothing was forever. You grew as a kid and made some new arch enemies on the team that was your rival, even if you slept over at their house later that evening. Every year, you'd have practices leading up to the greatest day of the season, OPENING DAY. When it got close to opening day, your coach would bring THE BOX to practice, and everyone would see THE BOX throughout practice. You were distracted by THE BOX and it may have caused you to lose concentration on the fielding drill because your eyes were transfixed on THE BOX. For those transgressions, you might have had to do pushups or running drills. I know "everyone on the line" were words you'd never be able to enjoy when said consecutively. Why was THE BOX so important? It held the Holy Grail of baseball, your crisp new uniform. You'd work out during class in school (sorry teachers, the digestive system of a salamander just wasn't as important) the returning players would probably get their old numbers from the year before, and the numbers rarely went over 16, so you'd have it narrowed down to a few precious numbers that you'd like to get, kind of like a pseudo NFL draft but with baseball jerseys. Upon the end of practice, THE BOX would make it's appearance and the 12 year old version of trading at the Stock Market would commence. There were elbows thrown, barters made, might even have been a bribe or two to other players to get that precious number 7, which was vacated by the kid who wore it last year who moved out of town. Once in your hands, you were now ready to attack the world. Upon the arrival of opening day, you'd also break out the new cleats, the new hat (which was also the only official place to keep track of your team's record throughout the year), check it in the mirror a few times before you left for the opening ceremonies and then prayed you'd make it through the day to your game with it still clean, which inevitably it never was. The entire schedule was known to everyone and you'd stop to watch games to see the ace pitchers face each other, and when it got out of hand, head over as a group to get a soda from the snackbar or head to the playground for a game of hot box. This was Utopia.

Nowadays, that opening day adrenalin kick has transformed into a money grab with no games being played. The Opening Day Carnival is now a yearly occurence. The first game of the season is played on a weekday? WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?? Does Major League Baseball stop to say "It's Opening Day! There will be no games played!" Hell no. They play ball. This particular trip to Forestville saddened me to see no games being played on the bottom field and the Storm playing the River Cats on the top field, with signs that said NO COACHING ZONE on the fences. What happened to the guy yelling over the fence in Left Field? He's been replaced with that sign. The parent giving signs from the stands? Nope, now he's holding a pitch counter. What happened to the US vs. THEM? Last night a coach from the other team was giving the other coach advice on how to help a kid mid-at bat. WHAT HAPPENED TO LITTLE LEAGUE? I used to have a baseball card of Rickey Henderson in my back pocket. Nowadays, it's an addition to the "uniform" and most likely would be considered a health hazard. I don't get it. Our coach recommended beer and marshmallows before, during and after games. An obvious joke, but in yesterday vs. today's Little League dichotomy (thank you El Mo High), chances are a kid would tell their parents and instead of laughing, a parent would tell the League Board of Directors and that coach would be removed for telling a joke. What would today's Little League say about our batting tee which was a car rim with a pipe welded to it with a radiator hose holding the ball? Is this safe? Will someone sue us? Forget the fact we all were near passing out and throwing up at a practice as we experienced our first taste of Copenhagen at 12 years old. I'd like to think that's why I DON'T chew now. Hell, it's a wonder I graduated with the negative influence Little League had on me. Looking back, it was the greatest time of childhood, those summers in Forestville followed by swimming in the Glover's pool afterwards/going to Lemos's house after a game and seeing all the guys at J's Amusements afterwards.

Last night, I watched for four innings and couldn't do it anymore. It was baseball, yes. But a controlled, vacuum sealed, skeleton of baseball. I saw one "coach" who I'd recommend continue. The rest were there in uniform only. It's basically a two hour daycare, except with more restrictions. What about little brother in and around the stands running around throwing apples and climbing on trees? Nope. This tree was braced to prevent climbing, presumably to save the tree or prevent the tree from running away.

I just don't understand where my El Molino Little League went. Maybe the ones who are still there didn't see it coming and rolled with the punches so to speak. Maybe they just don't know any different. Even scarier, but maybe they don't care.

To the ones who were there and then left and came back, it's downright depressing."
