Great tournament with a bit too much heat, but all the players managed themselves well. Thanks to Lennox for Hosting.

I have received some feedback regarding the bat rules for Prairie Grass League and I just wanted to clarify what is in our League Rules. In plain terms, it follows SDVFWBaseball.com website in terms of rules. All bats must have USABAT stamp. Illegal bats include USSSA bats. Bats should be removed from the game and the batter is called out if he steps into the batters box with an illegal bat.
Equipment Rules (From Prairie Grass League Rules)
From SDVFWBaseball.com Link:
Bat requirements for 12U Age Division. All bats for 12U teams must be in accordance with
USABAT Standard. The bat shall include the official stamp of the Little League Baseball
organization or state Little League approved. See this link for USABAT. Any illegal bats will be
removed from the game and the batter is out
You will need to select 2018 Season for the time being to see your game schedule. We continue to work on the ability to remove 2018 season and have everything under 2019.
