THERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT CHANGES REGARDING BAT STANDARDS THAT WILL DICTATE WHAT TYPE OF BAT CAN BE USED FOR PLAYERS PARTICIPATING IN IBL BASEBALL - PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN PURCHASING NEW BATS FOR YOUR PLAYERS - THEY MUST COMPLY WITH THESE STANDARDS TO BE USED IN IBL.


In conjunction with USA Baseball and its other participating national member organizations, PONY Baseball has adopted the new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat). Effective January 1, 2018, with the exception of -3 (BBCOR certified), all other 2 1/4" and 2 5/8" barrel bats with a minus factor of (-5, -7, -9, etc.), must be USABat certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and tournament play. All 2 1/4" and 2 5/8" minus factor bats -5, -7, -9, etc. used in 2017 will be illegal to use in 2018.

Tee ball bats are not required to undergo lab testing to receive approval under the USABat program. However, to be approved for play, tee ball bats must carry the USA Baseball mark accompanied by the following text: "Only For Use With Approved Tee Ball Bats." If you already have a tee ball bat you would like to continue using, all you have to do is purchase a USA Bat sticker directly from USA Baseball and place it on your bat. You can purchase a USA Bat sticker, click here. Tee ball bats manufactured after the new rule was adopted will already include the USABat Baseball mark. 


The new USABat certified bats bearing the USABat licensing mark are expected to be offered in retail stores September 1, 2017.
