The Club supplies a couple of bats per team, but for those of you wishing to purchase personal bats please be aware of Little League bat regulations.
As of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard was implemented. USABat Standard bats must be used in the Little League Major Baseball Division and below. Either USABat Standard bats or BBCOR bats must be used at the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball and Junior League Baseball Divisions. At the Senior League Baseball Division, all bats must be meet the BBCOR standard. Little League-approved baseball bats that were approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity as of January 1, 2018. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.
BBCOR stands for Batted Ball Coefficient Of Restitution
This standard regulates how much energy is lost during the bat's contact with the baseball. The higher the number the bat registers in the test, the more trampoline effect it has.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) together with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) decided that 0.50 would be the maximum value a BBCOR bat could register, which is only slightly higher than that of a wood bat.
All BBCOR certified bats must also have a barrel diameter no greater than 2⅝", a length to weight ratio no greater than -3 and a length that does no exceed 36".
