New Bat Standard as of 2018

New Baseball Bats as of 2018

Dear Baseball Families,

We wanted to alert you to a new BASEBALL Bat standard that begins in 2018. With the holiday season 
approaching we wanted to send another reminder. We recommend you take this new standard into consideration before making any additional bat purchases.

PLEASE NOTE THIS ONLY APPLIES TO BASEBALL BATS NOT SOFTBALL BATS

Little League International has issued a memo (attached) stating that they will be instituting a new bat standard starting with the 2018 season. The new standard (USA Bat) is being adopted by virtually all youth sports organizations. The intent of the memo is to give advanced notice about the forthcoming change.

Once the 2018 season hits ALL the bats we use today will no longer be allowed. We recommend you take this new standard into consideration before making any additional bat purchases. It is estimated that bats that meet the new standard will be available for sale starting fall of 2017. Any bat you purchase today will NOT meet the new standard in 2018.

The bats we use today will be allowed next year (2017), but as of January 1, 2018 they will no longer be allowed. 

We wanted to bring your attention to this new standard well before it's adoption in 2018.

More information about the standard can be found on the Little League website at the link below.
