As many of you know, Ahern Whalen has had a league in Middletown since 1950. Serving baseball players from 13 to 18 years of age for over 67 years.
I am inviting you to the annual meeting to discuss the league operation and the election of officers. This meeting is your opportunity to suggest options for training, scheduling, length of the seasons, All Stars, and the Ahern Whalen Tournament.
I am also asking for a few people who are interested in coaching and running the league to step up to the plate. I know that there are many good coaches and people whose kids have graduated from Little League that would be a great asset to Ahern Whalen.
JOIN OUR LEAGUE AND MAKE IT EVEN BETTER
DATE: SUNDAY FEBRUARY 19TH
TIME: 7:00 PM
LOCATION: AMERICAN LEGION HALL LOCATED NEXT TO PALMER FIELD
If you cannot make the meeting but would like to talk to someone about the League, please call.
In 2014, Little League District Administrators initially voted to move the age determination date from April 30 to December 31, effective with the 2018 season. That was amended by District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors in August 2015, moving the date from December 31 to August 31.
For players born on or before August 31, 2005:
The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.
For players born on or after September 1, 2005:
The new age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.

Baseball Bat Resource Page
Little League International has assembled an online resource page dedicated to baseball bat information. Click below to find the latest bat information, including the current Little League Baseball rules and regulations governing bats, definition of terms, the moratorium on the use of composite bats, and a series of frequently asked questions, with answers and licensed bat lists.
*NOTE REGARDING SOFTBALL BATS:
The composite moratorium only applies to baseball bats with 2 1/4 inch barrels. It DOES NOT apply to any divisions of Little League Softball. Also, there is no list of approved softball bats. In softball, the bat only needs to meet the specifications of Rule 1.10 (Click Here) for a softball bat.
