Hello ESLL families,
We wanted to make sure everyone was aware of a rule change from Little League International this year that affects the bats that are allowed during play (both games and practices). The change requires all bats used during little league play meet the USABat standard. Because this is a new standard it means all bats manufactured in previous years will not be allowed. This includes bats approved for the 2017 season.

Please contact East Scottsdale Little League if you have any questions or would like any additional information.
East Scottsdale Little League is a youth baseball league for girls and boys to learn and play baseball. Kids in ESLL live in the areas of South Scottsdale that are covered by Kiva Elementary, Pueblo Elementary and Navajo Elementary School attendance areas which feed into Mohave Middle School and Saguaro High School. Additionally, if your child attends school in the same area they can also play in East Scottsdale. This includes the aforementioned schools and Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Noah Webster and St. Maria Goretti Kindergarten.

“He's Just a Little Boy”
He stands at the plate with his heart pounding fast. The bases are loaded, the die has been cast. Mom and Dad cannot help him, he stands all alone. A hit at this moment would send his team home. The ball meets the plate, he swings and he misses. There's a groan from the crowd, with some boos and some hisses.
A thoughtless voice cries, "Strike out the bum." Tears fill his eyes, the game's no longer fun. So open up your heart and give him a break, for it's moments like this, a man you can make. Please keep this in mind when you hear someone forget, He is just a little boy, and not a man yet.
