NEW - 2018 USA Baseball Bat Rules

As some of you may have heard, there will be a rule change regarding bats that the baseball players can use.  Starting this upcoming season the Chippewa Valley Baseball League "CVBL"  will be following the new USA Baseball Bat standard.  Since AYS&B takes part in the CVBL, we will be adopting the new bat rule.  Moving forward the only bats that will be allowed for use in league play will feature the USA Baseball stamp:

 

If your bat does not feature the above stamp it will not be allowed for use in league play.

Big barrel bats, up to a 2-5/8" barrel, that feature the new stamp will also be allowed.

Special note for Preps/Ponies: CVBL has adopted the new USA Bat standard for Preps/Ponies with one exception, a -3 BBCOR certified bat may be used in league play. If you are using something other than a - 3 BBCOR certified bat it must be stamped with USA Baseball Logo.  The highest minus factor for this age division is a - 8.

Below are a few resources that detail the new bat rule:
