To answer some confusion: The proposed metal bat division will be held on Tuesday or Thursday nights. Yes, you or your teams can play in both wood bat and metal bat leagues. Doubleheaders can be arranged for Southern Humboldt or Crescent City teams. USSSA sanctioned bats with sticker are the legal metal bats. Seniors over 50 are allowed Mikan Ultra's. We will be using Dudley Thunder 44 core balls with .375 Compression tentatively. Home Run rule will most likely be 1 per inning or 5 per game and then equalizer. I will let managers decide the best fit.
Metal Bat Teams so far! Tentative of course. Meeting May 22nd at Arcata Community center.
1. Lets Play Ball!
4. Snow Leopards
6. Bear River
8. Batting Cages
9. Solo Sports
10. Les Schwab

Their back! Driving across the Samoa Bridge I noticed a flock of Egrets in the Monterey Cypress trees on Indian Island. Summer must be around the corner! Every year they show back up to nest. There is some concern about how much longer that they can use the island, as the trees are not native and were planted in the 1860's. They might be closing in on their life span.
