With no snow on the ground, the start of the 2016 New Milford Parks and Recreation is right around the corner. To get things rolling along, the first meeting for managers has been announced.
The first meeting of the year will kick off for the women’s league on Monday February 1 from 6-7 p.m. at the Parks and Recreation Office on Bridge Street. The men’s meeting will take place immediately after from 7-8:30 p.m. All teams should have at least on representative to hand in the required forms (2016 Team Information Sheet and Unsigned Roster). The $150 deposit is also required at the meeting and any team that does not pay this may be subject to a late fee.
We will update following the meeting to announce what was discussed at the meeting whcih could include talk of a possible division re-alignment in the men’s league or even new umpires.
One of the most anticipated fastpitch softball bats each year comes from DeMarini. This year, the CF8, is the bat that softball players around the country want to swing. This bat, which comes in multiple sizes and weight drops will be one of the best bats you can swing this season and with a regular price of $369.99, is in line with what you would pay for any elite bat.
These bats are made with Paradox Plus+ Composite material, which created a stronger barrel, and is actually ready to go out of the wrapper. As soon as you swing this bat, you will notice the sweet spot is larger than most other fastpitch bats on the market. It has a revolutionary D-Fusion 2.0 handle that was made to redirect energy with your swing back to the barrel where you need the explosiveness.
Among the models you will be able to add to your bat bag this upcoming season include:
2016 DeMarini CF8 Insane Fastpitch End-Load DXCFI -10
2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch DXCFS -11
2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Hope DXCFH -10
2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Slapper DXCFA -10
2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch DXCFF -9
2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Balanced -10

When it comes to competitive baseball and softball at any age or level, individualism among the players is obvious. When you walk into the bench area of any local parks and recreation slowpitch league, you will see guys wearing sleeves, towels, and other accessories that help them stand out above the others. Now, DeMarini, one of the premiere bat manufacturers in the world, is allowing users the chance to stand out even more with their own custom bat.
With DeMariniCustomBats.com, which will be launching later this year, you will be able to fully customize your bat. Before, the only real way to customize your bat was with the tape you used on your handle. With the upcoming release of this feature, you will be able to customize any of the following four bats.
- 2015 Voodoo -3 BBCOR Baseball
- 2015 Voodoo -10 2 ¾ Youth Baseball
- 2015 ONE SlowPitch
- 2016 Fastpitch (Coming this Spring)
This something these sports has been waiting for decades to see happen. With countless companies offering full-dye jersey packages and other services, it was only a matter of time before customized bats came up in the discussion.
If you head over to the website, you can sign up through email to be notified when the site officially launches and also be entered for a chance to win customized bat of your own.
