USA Baseball Bat Standards for 2018!

Look for this logo on any new bat purchased for use in the 2018 Little League seasons. Beginning January 1, 2018 all previously approved bats for Little League play will become ineligible and all players must use the new standard bats which are stamped with the "USA Baseball" logo shown here. Watch a short video clip here as well for more information. For the remainder of the 2017 season all previously approved bats are still eligible so no need to run out and buy a new bat just yet.
