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
- 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.
