 2018 USA BASEBALL BAT STANDARDS NOW AVAILABLE!

USABat Standard Baseball Bats


USA Baseball Logo

 

 

 

 

Starting in 2018, to be legal for play in Little League, Pony Baseball, Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth Baseball, AABC, AAU and Dixie Youth Baseball, your bat will need the USABat stamp on it.

 

Long story short, everyone who plays with the Montgomery Baseball League (league and tournament play) under the Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Baseball chartered organization and the other organizations mentioned above will need to buy a new bat starting in 2018. These bats will perform like wood bats. Baseballs will likely not be hit as far with these bats, BUT the larger diameter barrel on the baseball bats can and will make the baseball easier to hit for many players. See the chart below and please feel free to visit http://www.baberuthleague.org/ for more information.
