REMINDER: New USA Bat Standard in Place for 2018 Season

Effective January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball bat standard, or USA Bat, will be implemented by most youth baseball programs across the U.S., including our chartering organization, the Cal Ripken Division of Babe Ruth Baseball. The goal of the new standard is to help preserve the long-term integrity of the game by creating wood-like bat performance while still allowing younger players to use lighter-weight bats that aren’t possible with real wood.

The new standard means that bats used in 2017 and earlier bearing the “BPF 1.15” stamp will no longer be legal in our youth league. This fall, sporting goods retailers began selling compliant bats. When shopping for a new bat, please make sure that the bat is stamped with the USA Baseball logo.

Under the new standard, youth league players will now be allowed to use compliant 2 5/8” diameter “big barrel” bats in addition to 2 1/4” diameter bats. Wooden bats will continue to be legal.

Senior league players may continue to use bats meeting the “BBCOR .50” standard or may use any bat meeting the new USA Bat standard.
