2018 Bat Standards - Important Information
As many of you may have heard, 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 will be permitted to be used in any Little League game or practice, or other Little League function, event, or activity.
The new bats are expected to be on sale starting in September 2017 and will be stamped with the “USA Baseball” logo like the one below. Please be careful and do not purchase a bat with the “1.15 BPF” stamp, as these bats will not be permitted starting January 1, 2018. Please Note: these new bat standards to NOT apply to Fall Ball 2017.
