Beginning with the 2018 season, non-wood and laminated bats used in the Little League (Majors) and below, Intermediate (50-70) Division, and Junior League divisions, shall bear the USA Baseball logo signifying that the bat meets the USABat – USA Baseball’s Youth Bat Performance Standard. All BPF 1.15 bats will be prohibited beginning with the 2018 season. Additionally, starting in 2018, the bat diameter shall not exceed 2⅝ inches for these divisions of play.
All bats in these divisions must be checked and bear the league- approved bat sticker to show they are approved for play. Only members of the League's Board of Directors can approve and sticker bats. Talk to your team's manager to determine how to get your bat approved. Penalties for the use of unapproved or unstickered bats are outlined in each division's rules. Tee ball bats are not approved for use in any non-tee ball division.
