Spring Equipment Exchange

Fairfax Little League Spring 2017 Equipment Exchange

Saturday, March 25, 10am to 1pm. Rain or Shine

Thaiss/Pickett Field Picnic Tables

(We'll be in the Little League Boardroom if it's raining)

 

Spring will be here in a few days and Opening Day is just two weeks away. It's time to get ready for baseball. Your son or daughter is excited to meet their teammates and try on their new uniform. You pull out their baseball stuff and discover your little ballplayer has outgrown their cleats. And, their pants are the wrong color for their team this season. Or, their tiny T-ball glove and bat just won’t cut it in ‘A' Ball. A tough start to the season before the first pitch has been thrown. We may be able to help. 

The Fairfax Little League Equipment Exchange is an opportunity for families to exchange gently-used baseball equipment and clothing - bats, gloves, cleats, pants, belts, socks, batting helmets, equipment bags, catcher's gear, etc. Bring your too-small equipment and clothing and swap it for the right size and color. There is no cost to participate in our Exchange nor do you have to leave something to take something. More than 500 families have participated in the Exchange over the past few seasons. 

We have in-person Exchanges prior to the Spring and Fall baseball season. All Fairfax Little League families and alumni are welcome to participate - we just ask when your child has outgrown an item of clothing or baseball equipment, your family "pays it forward" so another child may benefit from the Exchange. If you can’t make the March 25th Exchange or your child needs something during the season, please use the Fairfax Little League Equipment Exchange page on Facebook.

Please be sure bats comply with Little League International standards. To check, go to FairfaxLL.com and click on 'Parents FAQs.’

If you’d like to volunteer to help on March 25 or have a question about the Equipment Exchange, please email

New Bat Standards for 2018

New USABat Standard in 2018 for Little League


    Important news for parents looking to purchase baseball bats for 2017. Little League and USA baseball are implementing a new standard (USABat) for bats at the youth levels in 2018.  This standard will create wood-like performance in youth bats, which is less than the performance of current bats on the market. 

    Please know all of the current legal composite / metal / aluminum bats available this holiday season will not be legal in 2018.  Bats that are regulated by the new USABat standard will be available to purchase by September 1st, 2017.

    Through 2017, Little League will require the use of a 2 1/4 inch diameter barrel on all of their bats for youth baseball players. Starting 2018 , the new USABat standard will allow for bats with either a 2 1/4 inch or 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter (as long as they carry the new USABat stamp).  One thing to keep in mind, however, is the sweet spot will be much smaller on the new bats than the sweet spot on the current big barrel bats available on the market.

http://www.littleleague.org/media/llnewsarchive/2015/May-August/Little-League-USA-Baseball-Bat-Standard-2018.htm

    USSSA Baseball (NVTBL Travel Baseball) will not be affected by the USABat standard, so bats will still be produced with the USSSA BPF 1.15 certification. Little League will require the USABat "Stamp" certification.
