NEW Bat Rules for 2018

 New Baseball Bat Rules for 2018

Starting in 2018, Little League International has issued new rules for baseball bats. This means that bats your child used previously may not be used in 2018. Tee Ball, AA, AAA, Minors, Majors, Intermediate and Junior Baseball divisions will use the USABat Standard. (Senior League Baseball Division will continue to be governed by the BBCOR bat standard.) 


What will be the barrel size of the new bats?

The bats approved using the USABat Standard will be made in 2 1/4- and 2 5/8- inch dimensions.

Will it matter if the new bats are composite or alloy barrel?

The USABat Standard will apply to both composite and alloy barrel bats.

Are the 2¼ inch Little League® Major Division bats going to be manufactured according to the USABat standard?

Yes. The 2 1/4 bats will be produced, however 2 5/8 barrel bats will be permitted in the Little League Baseball Major division.


Alexandria Little League will provide a few bats for each Spring team, but if you decide to purchase your own, make sure to review the new standards at usabat.com. As shown below, all new and approved bats will have the USA Baseball Stamp.
