NEW USA Bat Standard 2018

Good Morning -

As (hopefully) you have heard, 2018 is bringing changes to youth baseball bats.  Effective January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball bat standard, or USA Bat, will allow youth baseball organizations to reach their goal of wood-like bat performance in order to preserve the long-term integrity of the game, as well as instill a sense of uniformity among leagues.

USA Baseball will institute this standard in the following national member organizations:

  • American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC)
  • Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Baseball]
  • Dixie Boys Baseball
  • Dixie Youth Baseball
  • Little League Baseball
  • PONY Baseball

If your youth league is governed by any of the organizations listed above, then you will need to purchase a new bat for legal play in 2018.  USA Baseball-approved youth bats will be available for purchase September 1 at DICK’S Sporting Goods.
