2018 Bat Changes for Little League
Testing and evaluating of youth baseball bats has evolved into a science. So much so that the standard has also evolved to where USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the United States, is adopting a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats that will go into effect on January 1, 2018. The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat), was developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts.
Effective on January 1, 2018, Little League Baseball® will adhere to the new USABat standard. As a result all bats used in Little League starting in the 2018 season must be marked with the USA Baseball logo.
Homer Little League is sharing this information now because we know that many families may be looking to purchase new bats for the 2017 season. We want you to be aware of the new requirements beyond this season.
For those families who do NOT purchase their own bats do not worry, each team will be issued bats complying with this new standard.
