2018 Bat Rule Changes

Cal Ripken Baseball Division - All non-wood bats must have USABat Marking. Barrel Maximum 2 5/8". No BBCOR Bats are permitted in the Cal Ripken Division. For T-Ball, bats must be marked with USABat T-Ball Stamp.

Note: Solid one piece wood bats are permitted for use in all divisions and must conform to Rule 1.10. No laminated or experimental bats shall be used in a game.

Tampering or altering bats may violate certain federal and state laws and voids the USA Baseball certification, as well as all manufacturer warranties. Rolling is considered tampering and would void the bat’s certification and make it illegal for play.

New 2018 USA Baseball Bat Regulations
by posted 09/01/2017


NEW BAT REGULATIONS FOR 2018

In the Spring we advised our members about the new bat regulations starting 1/1/2018.  As of January 1, 2018 all youth baseball leagues are requiring players to use bats with the USA baseball stamp.  Below is a link from Dick's explaining the new standard in more detail.  

 

http://protips.dickssportinggoods.com/sports-and-activities/baseball/2018-usa-baseball-youth-bat-standard-change?camp=EML:DSG_PRM:08212017_08212017_USABatLaunch:Body_Video&customerkey=67622701-18&mcid=197757365&hdpid=da0c84b0-b293-4317-9cd4-0c05d584ebb6

 

This change applies to baseball only.  It does not affect softball.  

What this means for our MTBSA families is:

A. All MTBSA baseball players (not including the Connie Mack division) must use a bat with the new USA Baseball label on it.  Bats following the USABat standard are available for sale as of September 1, 2017.  To identify officially-sanctioned youth bats, look for the "USA Baseball" licensing mark, located on the taper. 

 

B. Regarding T-ball players, the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program is an initiative designed to allow for the continued use of T-ball bats that were manufactured prior to the implementation of the new USABat standard. This program will allow individuals and families to purchase approved stickers marked with the USA Baseball logo and language which reads: ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS. Stickers will be available for purchase online via USABaseballShop.com beginning September 1, 2017. 

 

The bats that were used this past year will not be allowed to be used after 1/1/2018 (with the exception of T-ball which will require the new sticker)  

This is a great time to take advantage of the 20% coupon for Dick's on September 16 to purchase a new bat (and maybe tuck it away for Santa to give).

 

There are several websites online if you want to research this more.  Below is a great link or you can Google new USA bat standard 2018.
