Equipment - Bats

As of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard was implemented. USABat Standard bats must be used in the Little League Major Baseball Division and below. Either USABat Standard bats or BBCOR bats must be used at the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball and Junior League Baseball Divisions.   

 Visit USA Baseball for a list of Little League Baseball approved bats.  

Important Note: These changes only affect baseball divisions and do not affect any divisions of softball.

We have noticed that some manufacturers are supplying retailers with decals to affix on to bats. These are being seen on Tee Ball level bats. BE CAREFUL not to purchase a bat that has the decal affixed to the outer wrapper of a bat. Once you bring the bat home and remove the wrapper, the stamp will be discarded. There is no way to identify that a bat is legal or not. IT MUST HAVE THE STAMP ON THE BAT.
