Please join Capitol Hill Little League (CHLL) and Mamie Johnson Little League (MJLL) on Wednesday, November 8, as we celebrate the end of a great year for Little League baseball and softball in the District of Columbia.
To mark the end of this successful year, the two neighboring Little Leagues are joining together to hold a year-end party, while at the same time raising funds to better support the development of baseball and softball programs on both sides of the Anacostia River for the year ahead.
Special guests at the event will include Mamie “Peanut” Johnson, first ever female pitcher in the Negro Leagues, DC Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton, and Representatives — and noted Congressional baseball team members — Cedric Richmond (D-LA/Pitcher) and Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN/2B). The event is co-chaired by long-time supporters and advocates of Little League, Phyllis Jane Young and John Parker.
When: Wednesday, November 8, 6:30-8:30pm
Where: Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough – 101 Constitution Ave NW, Ste 900

Beginning in January 2018 Little League International is moving to an entirely new bat standard. The only bats allowed for use in AA-Jr/Sr Little League Baseball are the new USA-Bat approved bats with the “USA Baseball” mark on it. These bats are designed to hit more like a wooden bat, which will be notably safer for players. These bats are beginning to appear in stores and online, and will have a logo that will look like the following:
This does not apply to Softball or Single A TeeBall. For TeeBall programs (CHLL Single A), the Standards allow non-USA Baseball bats 26” AND SHORTER to be used IF a NEW $2 “USA TeeBall” sticker is purchased and applied to the bat ONLY WHEN used with approved TeeBall baseballs. Bats longer than 26” will not be allowed in CHLL Single A.
If you are planning on buying a new bat for your Little Leaguer in the months ahead, please review the details on the new USA Bats for all baseball divisions from AA and up by visiting: http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo.htm
