UPPER MORELAND LITTLE LEAGUE
USA BAT STANDARD RESOURCE SHEET
In an effort to help clarify the new USA Bat Standards being adopted by Little League International, as of January 1, 2018, Upper Moreland Little League has decided to provide a brief document to help summarize the changes and consolidate some helpful resources.
Please note that 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. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.
Read full statement from Little League International here:
Little League International’s ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ regarding the USA Baseball Bat Standard can be found here:
Read a brief statement regarding the ‘USA Bat Youth Bat Standard’ here:
Full List of USA Approved Baseball Bats can be found here:
Quick Fact List:
Baseball bats, marked with a 1.15 BPF stamp or Little League stamp, will no longer be legal for play.
Affects Baseball (T-Ball, Minor, Major, Intermediate 50/70, and Junior Leagues)
Senior League Baseball will still follow BBCOR Certification Guidelines
Does not affect softball at all
Allows both 2-1/4” and 2-5/8” barrel bats with USA Bat
Wood bats are still allowed. Multi-Piece and Composite Wood Bats must feature the USA Baseball Certification Mark to be approved.

Congratulations to Team 62, UMLL's 2017 Majors Baseball Champions!
Congrats to Team 62, managed by Dave Hartley for winning UMLL's Majors Baseball championship, 7-2 over Team 63, managed by Ryan Kelly. Both teams made a nice run through the playoffs as 3 and 4 seeds, respectfully, defeating the #2 and #1 seeds on their way to the title game. Thanks to both teams for putting forth a great performance for all the fans in attendance!
Little League Adopts USA Baseball's New Bat Standard Starting in 2018
With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game. Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. 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. Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.
Sports Concussion Awareness
UMLL is providing the following link -- http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/index.html -- to important information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website to help keep our volunteers, including Directors, coaches, umpires, and parents, informed of how to detect and respond to the signs of a concussion in our players.
The goal of the HEADS UP Concussion in Youth Sports initiative is to help ensure the health and safety of young athletes by offering information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The HEADS UP initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
Embedded within the HEADS UP to Youth Sports program is the same free concussion training program that we are requiring our league directors, managers, coaches, and umpires to complete this pre-season. As parents of our players, we encourage you to also complete the training course, as well, to ensure all parties who interact with UMLL's players are best prepared to protect our kids.
Important Information about Changes to 2016 Baseball League Determination
In 2014, Little League Baseball Inc. District Administrators initially voted to move the baseball league age determination date from April 30th to December 31st, effective with the 2018 season. That change was amended by District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors in August 2015, moving the date from December 31st to August 31st. Effective November 2015, the implementation plan was again amended, grandfathering the four-months of children born between May 1st and August 31, 2005 as 12-year-olds for the 2018 season.
Recently, the UMLL Board of Directors elected to adopt these changes to the Baseball League Age Determination effective with the upcoming 2016 season. These baseball age determination dates will apply to all levels of play at UMLL -- in-house, travel, and tournament.
Please click on the enclosed link to Little League Baseball Inc. webpage for additional information on these recent changes to the Baseball League Age Determination that will impact the upcoming Spring 2016 Baseball season and forward.
