Babe Ruth League, Inc. – All Divisions – If any bat in Cal Ripken Baseball, Babe Ruth Baseball or Babe Ruth Softball cannot be clearly identified for its make and model to determine the barrel composition, then the bat should be removed from the game. For more information, visit: http://www.baberuthleague.org/bat-rules.aspx  

 

Penalty:

- If the illegal bat is discovered prior to a batter completing his "at bat", the bat is simply removed from play and the "at bat" continues.

- A player who uses an illegal bat or non-conforming barrel dimension and hits a fair ball will be ruled out. No advancement on the bases will be allowed, and any out during the play shall stand. This is an appeal play. The "at bat" will be considered legal once a pitch is thrown to the next batter.
