Ipswich Little Little League Frequently asked questions: 

Q. What bats are allowed for the 2019 season?
A: On January 1, 2018 a new USA Baseball Bat Standard was implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that were approved for use for the 2017 season and earlier are not acceptable for use in any Little League game, practice, or activity starting on January 1, 2018.

Beginning in the 2018 season, non-wood and laminated bats used in Little League shall bear the USA Baseball logo signifying that the bat meets the USABat standard – USA Baseball’s Youth Bat Performance Standard. Look for this logo on approved bats:

Traditional wood bats are still approved for play and do NOT need to have the above logo. More information can be found here.

Q:  What equipment is required and what does the league provide?
A:  A glove is required for all divisions, and cleats and baseball pants are required for AAA and the Majors. The league provides hats, jerseys, helmets and bats for all levels, though players are welcome to provide their own appropriate helmet and bat. There is no league policy on color of pants - but a preference is sometimes stated by the coach.  

Q:  How are rain-outs decided?
A:  Rainouts prior to the start of a game are usually decided between the managers of the two teams playing with input from the Field Manager on conditions. If a game has already started and an umpire is present, the umpire is in charge of making that call.
