2015 GYBA 10U N60 Program Changes

In an effort to evolve with the changing needs of our community and continue to provide a quality baseball experience for our players at all skill levels, GYBA will be making some enhancements to our 10U N60 program.  To accommodate the needs of families who desire a full travel and "travel-like" experience, in the face of shrinking numbers in those who want and are able to compete in either of these more competitive environments, GYBA will be eliminating the current N60 approach and be integrating the 10U N60 "travel-like" experience into our 10U Travel program.  

 
During in-house evaluations, we will choose 8 players, who wish to receive the N60 "travel like" experience, to fill 4 "part-time" positions on the 10U Coyote team.  These 8 "part-time" Coyote players will rotate into the four open positions on the team and play about 10-12 games throughout the Coyote season in Mikes Memorial League.  Because these players will be playing the same number of games N60 has played in the past, these 8 players will also be allowed to play in-house.  
 
In addition, any of the eight will have the ability to be chosen to accompany the team to their season ending premiere tournament in Wisconsin Dell's.  
 
The $200 fee to participate in the new N60 "travel like" experience will include uniform, league fees, and insurance.  Cost to participate in the Wisconsin Dells tournament will be incremental.  
 
For those who wish more information on the program/cost and to register for evaluation for the 8 N60 positions, please contact John Marson ( ) or Frank Nardomarino ( ).

USSSA Baseball Bat Performance Standards

 

This year, GYBA will comply with USSSA Baseball Bat Performance Standards by requiring all players to use bats that have either BBCOR or USSSA 1.15 bpf stamp.  

BBCOR is only for high school type bats (drop 3).



In summary, the  Baseball bat rules for 2013 are as follows:

Pinto & mustang – 2 ¼” max
Bronco – 2 5/8” max
Pony – 2 ¾” max

2 3/4" barrel bats are LEGAL only in PONY divisions.

2 5/8" barrel bats are LEGAL in BRONCO and PONY divisions, If a 2 5/8" bat is a -3, it must be BBCOR certified. 

2 1/4" bats are LEGAL in all divisions, if they are manufactured to a Bat Performance Factor of 1.15 or less. In addition the bat must be labeled "approved for play in PONY Baseball" and stamped "BPF 1.15" and the year manufactured. Recognizing that some bats may not have the year manufactured on the bat, it still must have BPF 1.15 stamped on the bat. 

Bat material is factored into the Bat Performance Factor (BPF) testing protocol as well as the BBCOR testing protocol. Subsequently as long as the aforementioned "marks" are on the bat that is the indication they have passed the appropriate testing protocol and are approved for play in GYBA Baseball.
