The Annual 2018 GVAA Home Run for Heroes Memorial Day Tournament will be held May 25-May 28, 2018 at Rabinowitz Fields in Voorhees 320 Kresson Road. There will be A and B divisions for ages 8 through 12, with a single division apiece for 7U, 13U, 14U and 15/16U. Town travel teams interested in registering should visit our tournament webpage here.
Teams that pay in full by March 15 will receive a $50 early bird discount. Otherwise, teams must pay the full price ($495 for 7U & 8U, $550 for all other age groups) by April 30.
This Tournament will abide by the new USA Bat Standards for 2018.
All bats will need to have a USA Stamp of Approval.
USABat Stamp of Approval
An Important Rule Change is coming in 2018 that will affect every player in our league.
Starting in January, Cal Ripken Baseball in conjunction with USA Baseball has implemented new bat rules that must be enforced at all levels in both our GVAA Rec and Travel programs.
These new bats are designed to act like wood bats and they must have a USABat Stamp of Approval to be legal for play.
The Bats you used in the 2017 season will not be allowed during our rec & travel games.
With this rule change, there is obviously a cost. These new bats will range in price just like the bats you have now.
To help our league and families transition to this new rule, GVAA will be purchasing and supplying each team in our Spring League with a USA Approved Bat.
While many of you will still opt to buy your own new bat, we wanted you to know, you don't have too.
We hope you take the time to read the new rules and the bat standards shown below. Our goal is to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Here Are the Key USABat Standard Baseball Bat Facts
TEE BALL BAT RULES:
Beginning January 1, 2018, participating National Member Organizations will adopt the USABat standard for youth baseball and tee ball bats. Unlike standard youth baseball bats, tee ball bats (lengths 26” and shorter) are not required to undergo lab testing to receive approval under the USABat Program.
However, to be approved for play within the participating National Member Organizations, tee ball bats must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying permanent text which reads:
ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS
