Parents can coach, be a Team Mom/Dad, keep score, prepare fields, serve on the Board of Directors, and/or work in the Snack Bar. In order to encourage participation, we require two $60 Parent Volunteer deposit checks per player (maximum of four per family). These checks will not be deposited unless a parent does not complete their volunteer service. If a parent wishes to "buy out" of their service, they may do so for $120. Deposit and
buy-out checks will be collected on January 6, 2018 during uniform fitting and player skill evaluations. After parents complete their volunteer service, the deposit checks will not be returned but will be shredded and destroyed.

FUNDRAISERS
Frontier Baseball has no mandatory fundraisers. No selling chocolate, no cookie dough, no raffle tickets, NO SELLING. Our fundraisers come from Snack Bar revenues, our Frontier Family Fun Nights, raffles, and silent auction. Our Fun Nights consist of our league enjoying a meal at local restaurants or a Frontier Bowling Night with part of the proceeds being donated back to our league. Our families get to enjoy a good meal, have some fun, and make money for the league at the same time. Our silent auction is a team sponsored fundraiser in which player’s families solicit or provide donation items that are then bidded on during our closing ceremonies.


REFUND POLICY
A refund request made prior to the final day of skills evaluation will be granted less $5 for online transaction fees. No refunds will be granted after the completion of skills evaluation, except for an injury that would cause the player to miss more than half of the season's scheduled games.

USABat Standard Begins on January 1, 2018
by posted 10/01/2017


Beginning on January 1, 2018, all Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth Leagues will be implementing the new USABat Standard.

How does the USABat Standard affect Frontier Youth Baseball?

  1. Only baseball bats with the new USA Baseball stamp are legal for league and tournament play. 
  2. The barrel maximum is 2-5/8 instead of 2-1/4.  

For more information, please refer to the official statement below and the official bat rules.


Implementation of USABat Standard Begins on January 1, 2018.

USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the U.S., in conjunction with participating national member organizations (NMOs) announced the decision to adopt a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats.  Informed by the research of leading scientists on the USA Baseball Bat Study Committee, and supported by its NMOs, -- including the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball, Little League Baseball and PONY Baseball -- USA Baseball has concluded that recent advancements in science, engineering, technology, and the materials available to fabricate non-wood bats, now allow the manufacturers to construct youth bats that can perform at a wood-like level through the entire range of lengths and weights of youth bats.

The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat), which will apply to bats that are classified below the NCAA and NFHS level of play, will be implemented on January 1, 2018, allowing the bat manufacturers sufficient time to bring these bats to the marketplace.


The Cal Ripken Division of Babe Ruth League, Inc. have approved the use of the 2 5/8 inch barrel bats for local league play and tournament play beginning in January 2018 and coinciding with the new USA Bat standard.

Similar to the NCAA and NFHS BBCOR standard, which helped to eliminate discrepancies with different length bats and thus provide a more direct measure of bat performance, the new USA Baseball bat standard will allow youth baseball organizations in the United States to reach their goal of establishing a wood-like standard, a standard that will provide for the long-term integrity of the game.

It is important to note there will be no immediate change to youth baseball organizations’ bat rules.  All bats, currently accepted for the respective leagues, remain permissible through December 31, 2017.  Each participating national member organization will incorporate the new standard into their rules for the 2018 season and will begin, with this announcement, to inform their membership of the USABat standard.
Frequently Asked Questions about the USABat standard:


Which national member organizations are implementing this new standard?
To date, the following organizations are participating (in alphabetical order): American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball, Little League Baseball and PONY Baseball.

Why the change to a wood-like standard?
USA Baseball’s national member organizations believe that a wood-like performance standard will best provide for the long-term integrity of the game. The new standard will not have a drop-weight limit, so young players can use bats made with light-weight materials.
 

Why not just use wood bats?
Wood is a scarce resource. The new bats will be designed to perform much like wood, where its performance will be limited to the highest performing wood.
 

How is the USABat standard different from the BBCOR standard used by the NCAA and NFHS?
Both the USA Baseball and NCAA bat performance tests are based on the coefficient of restitution from a bat-ball impact. The scale of results is different, however, since they use different test balls and test speeds. The testing difference is necessary to address the various levels of play in the respective age groups.
 

Why is USA Baseball involved?  
The national member organizations asked USA Baseball as the national governing body to take the lead in this process to establish a new standard.  Many other national governing bodies set and enforce standards for the equipment in their respective sports. To that end, USA Baseball established a Bat Study Committee of leading scientists and conducted theoretical modeling, field testing and lab testing. The committee shared its findings with the national member organizations, who then endorsed the new USABat standard.
 

Who were the scientists on the USA Baseball Bat Study Committee?
Alan Nathan, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Illinois
Dan Russell, Ph.D. Professor of Acoustics at Penn State University
Glenn Fleisig, Ph.D. Research Director of American Sports Medicine Institute
 

Why wait until 2018?
The implementation date of 2018 will allow bat manufacturers sufficient time to conduct the appropriate research, design, testing, manufacturing and shipping needed to get new bats into retail outlets. This date also allows the participating national member organizations adequate time to educate their memberships of the USABat standard.
 

Is my current bat good for league play?
Yes.  Current league-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017.
 

Is safety the reason for the change?
No.  Youth baseball continues to be one of the safest of all sports for youth participants.
 

How will I know which bat to buy?
All new bats that bear the USABat licensing mark will be permissible for play in the leagues and tournaments of the participating youth baseball organizations.
 

When can I buy the new bat?
It is the intention of the bat manufacturers to make the new bats available in the fall of 2017, in sufficient time for the 2018 season.
