Welcome to your Grant County Little League Blog! We are very excited to get the 2018 season underway and we hope that you find this blog to be a helpful resource throughout the season. This blog will be updated regularly from the start of sign-ups to the end of the season so we encourage you to check it often.
Just wanted to share some exciting news... Our major division will now be 50/70 which will be more like real baseball, and will also open up the opportunity for some 13 year olds. Here is the link to determine what your child's league age would be to see if he would be eligible. http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/age-chart-baseball.pdf Also, Little League International has made a rule change and we can only use bats that are stamped Usa bats in Major and Minor divisions, all other bats are now obsolete. For more information on these bats you can go to http://littleleague.org/site3.aspx
We hope you are just as excited as we are to get this season started, look forward to seeing you soon!

Players and Coaches MUST wear their jerseys to get free admission to the game. Teams will be announced prior to the game and players will be allowed to go on the field to their positions and stand with both high school teams as the anthem is played.
