Gently Used Donations
If you are like our family each year we do an inventory of baseball clothing and equipment and find a garage full of items that we have outgrown and that are taking up valuable garage space.
Donate your old or unused baseball equipment to West Covina American Little League and we will facilitate your generosity to children who do not posses the resources to acquire their own. Your donation will help ease the cost burden and remove barriers to participation for these children.
We are specifically looking for:
*Please see Michelle or Christina at the Snack Bar to donate items.
Thank you to BIG 5 Sporting Goods La Puente for your support!

Testing and evaluating of youth baseball bats has evolved into a science. So much so that the standard has also evolved to where USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the United States, is adopting a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats that will go into effect on January 1, 2018. The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat), was developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts.
Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball® will adhere to the new USABat standard. No bats previously approved for use in Little League Play (Junior League Baseball and below) will be permitted to be used in any Little League game or practice, or other Little League function, event, or activity. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.
What this means for local Little Leagues, and Little League baseball players in the Tee Ball through Junior League Divisions, as well as Little League Challenger Division®, is that all current Little League-approved bats can be used during the 2017 Little League regular season and throughout tournament play, but can no longer be used starting in 2018. All of Little League’s current bat regulations will remain in effect until December 31, 2017. Be aware that this new bat standard effects Little League Baseball only. There are no changes to the bat standard or regulations for Little League Softball®.
Congratulations to our 12 year old All-Star team for taking D19. Throughout the tournament WCA went 4-0 with 3 shut-outs. We definitely tip our hats to these boys and their coaches (Tim, Carlos, & Gus).
Please come out and support out 12 year old all-stars as they continue their baseball journey at the LL Section 3 Tournament in Ontario, CA. Next game will be Saturday, July 8 @ 7:00 pm.
