Bat Rule Changes for Boys Baseball. This will be effective this year. If you are playing 7 year baseball and up you would need to purchase a bat based on the new rules.
Old Bats for 7 & up Boys Baseball WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN LEAGUE OR GRPA PLAY. If you play Travel Ball and have a 2 5/8" bat it will not be legal for league play either UNLESS it carries THE NEW USA BASEBALL LOGO. This is a new National Rule regarding Baseball Bats.
Please pay close attention to bats that are on sale and make sure they have the correct markings on them with USA BASEBALL. Many distributors are lowering the prices on older bats in hope to move them prior to Christmas. The Old Little League or BBCOR Bats will not be legal for ages 7-12. The Older league right now will use BBCOR Rule for `14 & Up.
