2018 Season Changes
New Bat Rule - The league has adopted a bat rule requiring all athletes to swing the new USA bat. The majority of youth baseball organizations support and have adopted the new regulations as they believe it is best for the long-term integrity of youth baseball. The USAbat will behave like a wood bat, encouraging the ball to stay in play.
Unlike the wood-bat, the USAbat is lighter to swing and less top-heavy, allowing the athlete to put more form into the swing. The league will provide two bats per team, but if you choose to purchase a bat for your young athlete, please make sure the bat will have the USAbat stamp.
Welcoming Softball - The City of Montrose will provide softball opportunities for young ladies ages 9-10, 11-12 and 15U. The city is working closely with nearby communities to develop the league and will be able to provide coordinated games to those wanting to compete. However, due to unexpected numbers, as this is the first year implementing it, the league may have limited games. To improvise, teams may travel to Grand Junction and compete in their Tuesday and Thursday game days. It is a work in progress and we are excited to develop it.
