Little League District 56 Challenger Division is Open for Registration!
The Challenger Division of Little League is a program for mentally and physically challenged youth, helping them to enjoy the full benefits of participating in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. More than the skills of baseball learned through the experience, the value of the Little League Challenger Division is found in the proven therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports, the strengthening of participants’ self-esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play, and the disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play. Playing with the same equipment on the same fields, Challenger Division participants have the opportunity to experience the joys of
pulling together as a team, being cheered, and earning awards for their achievements.
Volunteers are also needed to help run the League.
Please see the attached flyer for more information.

Congratulations to the Murphy Ranch AA Dodgers – 2017 TOC Champions
The Dodgers had an incredible undefeated season and undefeated record in the 2017 TOC!
As of January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball will implement the new USA Baseball Bat Standard. A “Bat Standard” is a measuring tool that is used within the bat manufacturing industry to ensure that all commercially available bats meet a certain performance level.
Little League approved baseball bats that were approved for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for the 2018 season. This new rule is mandatory for all Little League programs world-wide.
What you need to know…
Rule 1.10: The bat must be a baseball bat which meets the USA Baseball Bat standard (USABat) as adopted by Little League. It shall be a smooth, rounded stick, and made of wood or of material and color tested and proved acceptable to the USA Baseball Bat standard (USABat).
Beginning with the 2018 season, non-wood and laminated bats used in the Little League (Majors) and below, Intermediate (50-70) Division, and Junior League divisions shall bear the USA Baseball logo signifying that the bat meets the USABat – USA Baseball’s Youth Bat Performance Standard. All BPF – 1.15 bats will be prohibited beginning with the 2018 season. Additionally, starting in 2018, the bat diameter shall not exceed 2⅝ inches for these divisions of play.
