2018 Rules and Regulation Updates

 2018 Rule Changes & Clarifications!  More information  here.

Please review the new baseball and challenger bat standards!  

A great resource for custom wooden bats is http://www.worldbaseballbats.com


Little League® to Adopt New USA Baseball Bat Standard Starting with 2018 Season

As of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018.

Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved.

For more information, including the 2017 baseball bat standard and bat lists as well as the 2018 baseball bat standard, click here.

Softball bats: The composite moratorium only applies to baseball bats with 2 1/4 inch barrels. It DOES NOT apply to any divisions of Little League Softball. Also, there is no list of approved softball bats. In softball, the bat only needs to meet the specifications of Rule 1.10 for a softball bat.

Why Kids Quit Sports - Interesting Article, Coaches and Parents!

From the author: "I believe there are five main reasons kids walk away from sports, and they all boil down to one common denominator: they cause kids to have a poor state of mind when it comes to sports.

  1. It's no longer fun
  2. They have lost ownership of the experience
  3. They don't get playing time
  4. They are afraid to make mistakes
  5. They feel disrespected
