We wanted to pass along some information regarding a change in bat requirements for Little League Baseball. You may notice that many sports retailers are heavily discounting bats anticipating this change and want to prevent parents purchasing a bat that will be unusable in the spring.
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. 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®.
Starting on January 1, 2018, all bats must be marked with the USABat label in order to be used in Little League Baseball® which are listed at the link below, question#8.
It is anticipated that bats meeting this new standard will be available in September of 2017. Please be careful when purchasing any new equipment for your son or daughter. More information can be found about bat and barrel specifications at:
