For those of you thinking of purchasing bats for this season, Little League has changed the rules for which bats can be used. Here's a statement from Little League. Please follow the links below for more information.
Baseball Reminder: USABat Standard Goes Into Effect January 1
Effective January 1, 2018, non-wood and laminated baseball bats used in the Little League Baseball (Majors) and below, Intermediate (50/70) Division, and Junior League divisions, as well as the Little League Challenger Division, shall bear the USA Baseball logo signifying that the bat meets the USABat - USA Baseball’s Youth Bat Performance Standard. All BPF – 1.15 bats will be prohibited beginning with the 2018 season. Additionally, starting in 2018, the bat diameter shall not exceed 2-5/8 inches for these divisions of play. To help with the change, USA Baseball has launched a new website (USABat.com) that provides a detailed list of approved bats under the new standard, as well as some additional FAQs. Any additional questions regarding the USABat Standard can be sent to
Did you ever think that you could be a great umpire? Do you want to make a difference in your child’s Little League experience, but don’t have time to coach? Well here’s your chance. Umpiring is a way to get on back on a Little League field and lead the kids of the Redwood City Little League through fast, fun, fair, and safe Little League games. We’re looking for adults and youths 10-18* to help umpire in our Minors, Major, and Big Field Divisions. It’s a challenge, lots of fun and it’s a great way to participate in Little League even if you only have a few hours to offer.
*To umpire at age 10-12, you must be currently playing in RWCLL Majors.
How do I get started? First, sign up by completing our interest form by Clicking Here. We will then send you a invite you to one of our umpire training sessions. You’ll be trained by experienced RWCLL umpires on the rules and field mechanics. You’ll sign up for games with our scheduler to umpire games that fit your schedule, usually with a partner. All RWCLL umpires are issued an umpire shirt, a hat, a ball/ strike indicator and a Little League Rule Book.
Youth Umpiring-A First Job We look at our youth umpire program with pride as as we have trained a number of former players to develop leadership skills on the baseball field. As a youth umpire, you will earn $20 - $35 per game or if you want to earn community service hours in lieu of pay we can do that as well. For many kids, this is their first paid job. Also, just ask a dad or mom who has umpired with their son or daughter. Umping games together can be a rewarding, enriching shared experience that you will talk about for years.
