ATTENTION: There is a new bat standard in effect for the upcoming 2018 spring season for little league baseball. We strongly encourage all participants and parents to review the entire bat protocol on the Little League website. You can find all the details HERE. Sammamish Little League will adhere to this standard, so please be prepared.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Softball is not impacted by this policy change.
Directly from Little League International as found on the website above:
Little League International has assembled an online resource page dedicated to baseball bat information, that includes the latest bat information, current Little League Baseball rules and regulations governing bats, definition of terms, the moratorium on the use of composite bats, and a series of frequently asked questions, with answers and licensed bat lists.
Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.
