UPDATE - Sad News for Hot Dog Man
The RLL community was saddened to hear the news that Jerome Sander’s youngest son (Jamal Montague, 30) died tragically May 16 2015. Jerome remarked that his son was much like him. RLL’s thoughts and prayers go out to Jerome and his family.
Jerome is an institution at the fields at Byrd Park and a hard-working and caring individual at Richmond Little League. Many people have asked how they can help Jerome. Some individuals within Richmond Little League set up a GoFundMe page for non-tax deductible contributions to help Jerome with the funeral and burial cost of his son. Here is the link to the “For Jerome - Jamal Montague Memorial” fund on GoFundMe:http://www.gofundme.com/ve6ya28a2

Intermediate (50/70) Division (primarily 12s and 11s, some 13s) and Juniors (primarily 14s and 13s)
RLL adheres to Little League's policy for its 50/70 baseball and Juniors divisions. Basically, large barrel bats are legal, provided they comply with all Little League rules (only aluminum or wood bats, or composite barrel bats that are BBCOR certified). Small barrel bats are also legal provided they meet all Little League standards and do not contain composite materials in the barrel (bat head).
As stated by Little League rule 1.10: It shall not be more than 34 inches in length; nor more than 2 5/8 inches in diameter, and if wood, not less than fifteen-sixteenths (15/16) inches in diameter (7/8 inch for bats less than 30”) at its smallest part. All composite barrel bats shall meet the Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) (-3) performance standard, and such bats shall be so labeled with a silkscreen or other permanent certification mark. The certification mark shall be rectangular, a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color.
Another important note from Little League:
Q-11: Can a bat with a 2 1/4 inch barrel be used in Junior League Baseball and Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division?
A: Yes, but not all 2 1/4 inch bats can be used. If a bat’s barrel has no composite materials in it, it may be used in the Junior League Baseball and the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Divisions, provided it is labeled with a BPF (bat performance factor) of 1.15 or less, and meets the standards for length, handle diameter, etc. But if the bat has composite materials in the barrel, a 2 1/4-inch barrel MAY NOT be used; only a 2 5/8-inch BBCOR bat may be used.
Basically, any bat with a composite barrel (bat head) is illegal (unless BBCOR (-3)). A bat may contain composite material in the handle so long as it's not in the barrel bat head. When using a 2 ¼ bats use this list to review a bat and make sure it doesn’t have a composite barrel bat head. http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/2012LicensedBatList.pdf
