It is with great sadness that we share with you the news of the passing of a longtime Woodbridge Little League family member.

Dani Young passed away after a short and unexpected illness. Dani’s sons, Sutton and Talon, both grew up in Woodbridge Little League playing their entire careers here in our league, at Woodbridge HS and both going on to play at the collegiate level.

Dani could always be seen sitting in the stands cheering on Talon and Sutton and the many others she watched grow up alongside her boys. Dani will be dearly missed by the many baseball Moms and Dads that shared the same stands with her. The entire Woodbridge community is mourning the loss of such a wonderful woman, daughter, sister and mother.

Please keep Eddie, Talon, Sutton and the entire Young family in your thoughts and prayers as they navigate these very difficult times.

There will be a memorial service at Miller Funeral Home on Friday at 4 pm. All are welcome to attend. Let’s show the Young family how much we love Dani and her family. In lieu of flowers and in true baseball spirit, the Young family is asking for all donations to be made in Dani’s name to Woodbridge Little League.

Remembering Dani Young…..

Paul Habina
President, WLL VA

Parents, before you go out and spend your hard earned money on a new bat, please read the article on changes in bat standards.

With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved. Visit LittleLeague.org for additional information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.
