USA Baseball has announced that the testing standards for bat performance will be changed for next year. For organizations who choose to adapt these standards, all bats will require a USA Baseball performance certification stamp beginning in January 2018. This stamp will replace the current USSSA BPF stamp.
The Lake Shore Feeder Baseball League (LSFBL) HAS REJECTED the adoption of these rules and will continue to allow the use of USSSA approved bats. The new USA Baseball bats are also approved for use in this league. As a result, all bats with either a USSSA or USA Baseball stamp ARE approved for used in the 2018 season.
A revision to the LSFBL rules will now allow big barrels (up to 2-5/8") to be used at the 9U level. Bat rules for all other age groups remain unchanged.
Glenview Youth Baseball has also rejected the adaption of the new USA Baseball bat rules for their 2018 House League seasons (spring & summer). All house league players will be allowed to use both their USSSA 1.15 BPF bats and new USA Baseball bats throughout the 2018 season. Barrel diameters restrictions will increase to 2-5/8" for the Mustang. Bronco and Pony levels. Bat barrels must not exceed 2-1/4" in diameter for the Shetland & Pinto levels.
PLEASE NOTE: Some tournaments may still require the new USA Baseball certification for bats used in their event. GYB and LSFBL bat rules may not apply to outside tournaments.
Congratulations to the Patriot 9u Red team on their LSFBL Championship Win!! From 10-seed to league champs!!

Evaluators will be independent from GYB with considerable baseball experience and knowledge. The tryouts will also be run by independent instructors working the players through the various stations.
All participating players will be required to pre-register and pay a $20 tryout fee. This helps offset the cost of facility rental and instructors. Players can register for tryouts at the link below. ALL PLAYERS WHO WISH TO TRYOUT MUST REGISTER.
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED
Award notifications that a player has made the team will be sent via email and accompanied by payment request. This $250 payment request will serve as a non-refundable deposit to secure your roster spot and will ultimately be applied toward the total cost to play. Players must accept and pay the deposit within 24 hours of receipt or their roster spot will be forfeited and awarded to the next deserving player.
Any questions can be directed to Tim Heublein (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
