All levels of baseball play are required to have a bat with the new 2018 USABat stamp. This is not an implementation through our organization, rather through the Little League International as a whole. Every district, every city, every organization is required to follow this new bat standard.
What does this mean for you as a parent? Unfortunately, this means that any bat that your child has used in the past are no longer allowed to be used. Every child will need to use a bat with the new stamp on it. This rule effects all age levels, t-ball through Majors. If your child will be receiving a bat before next season (ie. as a Christmas gift, etc.), please make sure it has the approved bat stamp before you open it!
