New Bat Rules 2018
by posted 10/27/2017

Beginning in 2018, all bats used in play must meet the new rules governing approved bats.

This logo MUST appear on the handle of your bat or a green sticker version will be on the barrel of the bat. 

 

 

 

"It is the policy of Babe Ruth League, Inc. to assure the safety of all participants.  Accordingly, Babe Ruth League, Inc. reserves the right to ban any equipment, including bats, at any time, including during the season, based upon a change of existing policy and/or upon new information made available to Babe Ruth League, Inc."

A new tab, "2018 Bat Rule" has been added to our site that explains in further detail the change.  (see link below). We strongly encourage our members to read this information before making a purchase.

Please share this information with anyone who may be considering purchasing a bat or registering for our League. Christmas is not too far away and a new bat may be on a player's wish list!

2018 BAT RULE

Memorial Bench
by posted 04/25/2015

 

"This bench was inspired by, and in honor, of two amazing men:  Mark Hopkins and Kevin Mendoza .  They were dads, husbands, friends, coaches and volunteers.  They are what makes Windsor so great. Windsor is a community of families. Our community is special with amazing families with great family values. This bench represents that in appreciation of all volunteers.

So take a moment. Sit on the bench and reflect on a moment in time of what baseball meant to you and remember.

 

 

Little League baseball started by a volunteer with a dream; one man, Carl Stotz.  This man had perseverance. He went to 54 businesses asking for sponsorship before he got one that said, “yes.”  That business said “I will do it for the kids.” Carl also used $40 of his own money to start this dream which doesn’t sound like a lot of money but back in 1939, that was half his monthly income and you know there was a Mom that had to “OK” that decision.  That’s confidence.

Players, take time to thank our volunteers. The Moms and Dads that man the snack shack, the brothers that Umpire games and the Dads that coach.

I would like to thank Maryann Alexander and Board and the Town of Windsor for making this a reality.  It’s important to recognize and celebrate our volunteers because without them none of this would be possible and someday, the baseball players of today will be the volunteers of tomorrow; carrying on baseball traditions and all that it teaches us.  It also brings us together as a community." Daniel Gromm

Dante Mendozo and Ian Hopkins

The Board of Directors would like to thank all the families who made this possible with their support through our raffle last season. We would also like to thank the Town of Windsor Parks and Recreation Department for their support and assistance to ensure that this bench was ordered, received and installed in time for our Opening Day Parade.
