Welcome to Lewisboro Baseball and John Jay Youth Softball
New Little League Bat Rules

Hello LBA families.

As you may have already heard, Little League is changing the rules for approved baseball bats.  There is a lot of information at the Little League web site explaining the changes, which can be found at http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/baseballbatinfo.htm

There is a lot of info to digest on the website, but the key takeaways including the following: 

  • Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. As of the first day of 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented.
  • The USA Bat standard will create more of a wood-like performance in youth bats, while still allowing younger players to use light weight bats that could not be achieved with wood bats.
  • For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.

What does this mean for players in the LBA:

  • ALL players in our in town program from their first season with assisted pitch through their Majors season (12U) will need to use a bat with a  USA Baseball marketing and a 2 and 5/8” barrel maximum. 
  • ALL players that play on the big field (13U and older) must use  BBCOR bats, so no change to this rule.
  • Please note may not uniformly apply for travel games.  Some leagues are making this switch, others are not.  So it will depend on the specific rules of the tournament or league the travel team plays in.

Again, this is a national change being implemented.  Please see the web-sites we referenced above for your detailed questions.

 

Regards,

LBA Board
