We want to make you aware of a change in bat rules mandated by Little League International that will require you to buy new bats for play effective January 1, 2018. The bats are intended to provide a safer playing experience for our children.
All levels of Little League baseball are required to have a bat with the new 2018 USA Bat stamp on it. This is a mandate of Little League International. Every district, every city, every Little League organization is required to follow this new bat standard.
Little League International baseball bat information: www.littleleague.org/batinfo.
What does this mean for you? Every child will need to use a bat with the new stamp on it. This rule affects all age levels, from 5-12 years old. If your child will be receiving a bat before next season (such as for a Christmas gift), please make sure it has the approved bat stamp.
To help accommodate the new rule, B.A.L.L. will be supplying all teams with one team bat that has the stamp and complies with the new bat standard. The bat will be an average size for each age group.
We will send regular reminders in email and have information posted here on our website, so no one is surprised by this new rule next year. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have, or refer to the Little League International website for detailed information.
Whether you've coached with us in the past or are new to B.A.L.L., we couldn't have a great season without all of our amazing volunteer coaches! If you are interested in being a part of helping our youth players grow their passion and skills for the game of baseball, WE WANT YOU!
