News and Announcements
With the holiday shopping season upon us, we want to remind all that we are in the midst of a research effort with the University of Massachusetts (Lowell) to determine whether or not a moratorium will be placed on the use of composite 2¼-inch barreled baseball bats in the Little League Majors Division and below. We have already placed a moratorium on composite bats in the Junior League Baseball, Senior League Baseball, and Big League Baseball Divisions.
We anticipate making a decision on the use of composite 2¼-inch barreled baseball bats by Jan. 1, 2011, as promised in earlier communications on this subject.
Information on the moratorium on composite bats in the Junior League Baseball, Senior League Baseball, and Big League Baseball Divisions, as well as information on specific models of composite bats that have received a waiver of that moratorium, can be found here: http://www.littleleague.org/media/newsarchive/2010/Sep-Dec/StatementFromLLCompositeBats.htm
We encourage local league officials to provide this message to parents and volunteers in the local league.

The original Toms River Little League baseball diamonds were located where the Water Street Toms River Post Office is now. In 1963 Mr. Alton Estomin (TRLL President at that time) convinced Mayor John Woods of Toms River to donate 14 acres of land off Mapletree Road. Mr. Estomin’s vision and foresight over 50 years ago to obtain the land for a little league complex and the continued dedication and hard work of the Toms River Little League coaches and volunteers over the years have led to a first class facility for our youngsters. The dedication of the Toms River Little League Complex in honor of Mr. Estomin in 2009 serves as a lasting memorial to the vision and commitment to our community and our children.
