Jerome "Hot Dog Man" hospitalized - Update
Update from Thursday (4/24) afternoon: Jerome has not been released and is going through further tests today. He is now in room 244a on the 9th floor. He thanks everyone for thinking of him, and hopes to be out soon.
We missed seeing Jerome out at Byrd fields... He wasn't feeling well and his sister, Brenda Jones, took him in for some tests. Jerome was admitted to MCV and is stable now and doing fine. He will be there throughout the weekend (until Tuesday) with more tests on Monday. He is in room 220 on the 9th floor. Flowers have been sent from the RLL community.

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
