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. This rule only applies to metal or composite bats. 1-piece wood bats are not required to have the 2018 USA Bat stamp on it.
