    IMPORTANT NOTICE - 2018 BAT RULE CHANGES

    USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the U.S., in conjunction with participating national member organizations has adopted a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats.

    USA Baseball has concluded that recent advancements in science, engineering, technology, and the materials available to fabricate non-wood bats, now allow the manufacturers to construct youth bats that can perform at a wood-like level through the entire range of lengths and weights of youth bats.

    The USA Baseball bat standard will allow youth baseball organizations in the United States to reach their goal of establishing a wood-like standard, a standard that will provide for the long-term integrity of the game.

    The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat) will be implemented on January 1, 2018. 

    TRAVEL BASEBALL

    MBL/MBT member associations voted on October 4, to adopt the new guidelines.  Beginning in 2018 ONLY USA Baseball regulated bats may be used.  The new USA approved bats are hitting the market now and you can find a listing of approved bats and other FAQ's by clicking here: https://usabat.com/

    HOUSE LEAGUE

    Bats will NOT need to be replaced for House League Baseball.  Last years bats can be used.
