Welcome to the 2018 LSFBL Season!
The First Pitch of the 2018 LSFBL Regular Season is right around the turn! Game Schedules have been prepared and are in the process of being loaded to this web site. The first games of the season will be happening soon!
Several reminders: 1) The League’s Championship Sunday is scheduled to be held on July 22, 2018. Hold Monday, July 23 as a Rain Date. The LAST DAY of the Regular Season is July 15. 2) The League will continue to follow its current bat rules, using the 1.15 BPF standard, but will also allow the use of the new USA Baseball marked bats. Please see the 2018 Rules for more details. 3) The League will now allow the use of 2 5/8 inch barreled bats at the 9U level (10U – 14U already use this standard). 8U baseball will continue to use the 2 1/4 inch barrel standard. If you should have any questions about these or other matters, please reach out to your Community Representative.
Important Upcoming Events: The 10U through 14U Managers’ Meetings will occur on Sunday May 6 at the Deerpath Middle School in Lake Forest. 10U Team Mangers will meet from 9:00 to 10:00 AM; the 11U and 12U Managers will meet from 10:00 to 11:00 AM; and the 13U and 14U Managers will meet from 11:00 AM to Noon. It is VERY important that all team managers attend this meeting or have a substitute present. The MOST important agenda item will be to cover 2018 Rule Changes. Additionally several administrative matters will be covered, and at the conclusion of each meeting the League Game Baseballs and scorebooks will be distributed.
The 8U and 9U Managers’ Meeting will be held on Sunday May 20 at the Winnetka Community House. The exact time of these meetings will be communicated at a later date.
LET’S GET READY TO PLAY BALL!!
