News and Announcements
We just wanted to remind everybody about the new bat standard for Little League that begins January 1st, 2018. Bats that meet the new standards are available in stores and online beginning on Sept 1st, 2017. All bats that were legal in 2017 will no longer be able to be used in 2018. If you plan on buying a new bat soon please buy one that meets the new USA Baseball Standard. The below links have more info about the new rule.
With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved. Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.

Hello Poway American Little League!
A belated but well-deserved congratulations is in order for our Umpire in Chief, Tom Naylor. In July, Tom was awarded the John Coffey Award by the Coffey Award Committee for his work on behalf of Poway American Little League and District 31 during the 2017 Spring Season.
The John W. Coffey Award was established in 1997 by Earlene Coffey. It is presented annually to honor a volunteer umpire within District 31 who; by their effort, respect and dedication, reflect the standards established by the late, former District 31 Umpire-in-Chief, John Coffey.
Tom worked tirelessly organizing our umpire assignments, training, youth umpires, and umpiring many games throughout the spring. We can’t thank him enough and are proud to have him represent our league as the John Coffey Award recipient.
From the entire PALL family,* Way to Go Tom!*
Fall Ball Registration is now open! Visit pallbaseball.org for more information
