Like a lot of other teams in a lot of other places this spring and early summer, the Coppell Cowboys-Cooper 11u baseball squad has spent a lot of time looking at rain dripping down the window.
The Texas team entered the 2015 Omaha SlumpBuster with just 20 games under its belt, far less than the 50 originally scheduled before bad weather grabbed ahold of the Dallas Metroplex and refused to let go. On Friday, at Council Bluffs Recreation Center, the Cowboys showed their resilience and pulled past the Jackson Diamond 96ers National (Mississippi), 6-1, to get their SlumpBuster off to a flying start.
CBA wants to remind you of the updated rules for bats for U7 - U14 leagues. These rules have recently been updated by the USSSA effective January 1, 2012.
Big barrel bats (2 5/8” or 2 3/4”) must have an approved USSSA BPF 1.15 2012 stamp to be allowed beginning January 1, 2012. Wood bats and Qualified BBCOR bats will also be allowed in 2012.
Beginning January 1, 2012, all small barrel bats must have either the old or the new USSSA Mark on the bat.
CBA strongly encourages parents planning to purchase a bat to only purchase one with the 2012 USSSA BPF 1.15 seal affixed to the bat. These bats are currently available in stores and online. Bats without the 2012 USSSA BSP 1.15 seal may not be eligible for use beyond this fall season.
