New Bat Standard

At the end of the season, lots of baseball bats go on sale and many families spend good money to get new bats, especially those going into Fall Ball.  I wanted to provide you with an update on new bat requirements that Little League is adopting.

Little League International is adopting the new USA Baseball bat standards starting Jan 2018.  The new bat standard will make all current Little League approved bats illegal, and they will not be eligible for use next year in the T-Ball through Juniors divisions.

Therefore if you are planning on purchasing a new bat for your child anytime soon, it is recommended that you wait until the new bats become available in September.

Below you will find links with additional information that will help and clarify the new standards and rules.
