Little League has joined numerous youth baseball organizations and adopted the new USA Baseball Bat Standard. Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball® will adhere to the new USABat standard. No bats previously approved for use in Little League Play (Junior League Baseball and below) will be permitted to be used in any Little League game or practice, or other Little League function, event, or activity. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.
What this means for Burrel Baseball Association, and Little League baseball players in the Tee Ball through Junior League Divisions, is that all current Little League-approved bats can no longer be used starting in 2018. All of Little League’s current bat regulations will remain in effect until December 31, 2017.
