2018 Little League Registration and Changes

Although winter has just started, we are excited and are preparing for another season of Bainbridge Island Little League (baseball, softball, and tee ball)! Registration is currently open and runs through January 31st. We will have a late registration period from February 1st through February 15th ($50 late fee applicable). Anyone that registers after January 31st will be waitlisted and added to a team if or as registration numbers support.
There are several changes in 2018 we want to highlight:
Bat Standard Change. Little League International has adopted the USA bat standard effective January 1st, 2018. Bats not clearly marked with the USA logo will not be permitted for any practice or game. The new standard is intended to reduce the speed at which the ball comes off the bat to increase game safety. Bainbridge Island Little League will ensure each team has a limited number of new bats for each team in the event you don’t want to purchase your own.
New Uniforms. Bainbridge Island Little League will be going with new Nike uniforms in 2018 for all divisions. The MLB team affiliation has been dropped due to cost and other factors. We will be going with local team names and the cost of the uniform will be directed at the quality of the uniform instead of the MLB license.

Jamboree. In years past the launch of the Little League season has started with a Jamboree/Pancake Breakfast. This year we will be holding the usual Jamboree kickoff but the format has changed from a pancake breakfast to a pizza lunch. We anticipate handing out uniforms at this event.

Field Improvements. Field improvements are anticipated for the the start of the 2018 season and will be communicated to the Little League community at a later date.

Key Dates. Key dates related to the season can now be easily viewed online. The dates are subject to change and will be updated as applicable.
