Update - Connie Mack / Legion Program
Warminster Baseball & Softball Association will be offering a new division this year for our older boys this coming Spring. For ages 13-16 the boys will have an option to play either Legion Baseball or Connie Mack Baseball. I know the first question is what's the difference. The one major difference is that Legion Baseball uses wood bats. Both are very competitive leagues and there are multiple divisions in both leagues.
For anyone who is already familiar with the Legion program there have recently been some changes made which are highlighted below:
For Legion purposes, for the 2018 season, a player will play at the age level he will be turning during the 2018 calendar year (see chart below).
Year of Birth
Legion Age for 2018 Season

UPDATE: USA Baseball, member organizations announce new youth bat performance testing program
Implementation of USA Bat Standard Begins on January 1, 2018.
USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the U.S., in conjunction with participating national member organizations (NMOs) announced the decision to adopt a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats. Informed by the research of leading scientists on the USA Baseball Bat Study Committee, and supported by its NMOs, -- including the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball, Little League Baseball and PONY Baseball -- USA Baseball has concluded that recent advancements in science, engineering, technology, and the materials available to fabricate non-wood bats, now allow the manufacturers to construct youth bats that can perform at a wood-like level through the entire range of lengths and weights of youth bats.
The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat), which will apply to bats that are classified below the NCAA and NFHS level of play, will be implemented on January 1, 2018, allowing the bat manufacturers sufficient time to bring these bats to the marketplace.
The Cal Ripken Division of Babe Ruth League, Inc. have approved the use of the 2 5/8 inch barrel bats for local league play and tournament play beginning in January 2018 and coinciding with the new USA Bat standard.
Similar to the NCAA and NFHS BBCOR standard, which helped to eliminate discrepancies with different length bats and thus provide a more direct measure of bat performance, the new USA Baseball bat standard will allow youth baseball organizations in the United States to reach their goal of establishing a wood-like standard, a standard that will provide for the long-term integrity of the game.
