2018 Bat Regulations

2018 Little League Bat Regulations

Be cautious about spending huge money on a bat this Year. In 2018 every bat at every level and program of youth baseball will have to have the USA baseball stamp on it.  Below is the link to the official wording, but interesting to note will be 2 and 5/8 diameter bats in minor/majors and NO BBCOR bats in 50/70 and Juniors. As time gets closer, there will be further edification of these new rules.
