New Baseball Bat Rules for 2018

MAKE SURE THE BAT YOU PURCHASE HAS THE USA BASEBALL LOGO, ONE OF THE VARIATIONS SHOWN ABOVE

What you need to know:  

This applies to Baseball only, not Softball.

All bats, both composite and aluminum, purchased prior to September 1, 2017 cannot be used next season. The only bats grandfathered into the new USA Baseball rules are the tee ball bats.

Bats for purchase are now available at most outlets including Dick's Sporting Goods and C&M.


Mission Statement

Brookline Baseball & Softball exists to offer quality youth baseball and softball programs to the children of Haverford Township, Pennsylvania. Brookline offers baseball and softball programs for boys and girls ages 4-12. The league seeks to offer solid, competitive ball for all children regardless of their ability. Some of the rules governing participation are amended to create a greater sense of fairness and inclusiveness for all players without regard to their ability. Brookline Baseball & Softball strives to keep an appropriate perspective so that winning does not become the only goal. Improved play in a supportive environment is the overriding goal.


HAVERFORD COLLEGE BASEBALL CLINICS

For the 27th consecutive year, Haverford College will hold a series of baseball clinics for children ages seven to fourteen.  The college's baseball team will provide instruction on a specific skill - hitting, pitching, baserunning, infield or outfield play - in each of the six two-hour clinics.        

The first clinic is Sunday, January 28 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and the other five clinics are:  Sunday, February 4 (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.); Sunday, February 11 (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.); Sunday, February 18 (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.); Sunday, February 25 (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.); and Sunday, March 4 (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.).
