Attention Juniors Baseball Players, Coaches & Parents

Hello Junior Baseball Players, Coaches and Parents.

With the season starting tomorrow we wanted to pass along this bat regulation material. All material and information can be found at www.littleleague.org. In Junior league you may use the new USA standard bats. However, you may also use the old BBCOR standard bats as well. Please see the note below from Little League for Intermediate and Junior Baseball Divisions.

NOTE 2: Also, permitted for the Intermediate (50-70) Division and Junior League Division are bats meeting the BBCOR performance standard, and so labeled with a silkscreen or other permanent certification mark. The certification mark shall be rectangular, a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color. Aluminum/alloy and composite bats shall be marked as to their material makeup being aluminum/alloy or composite. This marking shall be silkscreen or other permanent certification mark, a minimum of one-half-inch on each side, and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color.

Hope this helps, and have a great season.

Important: Decertified Easton Bat

Easton Ghost Decertified Bat
On Thursday, May 3, USA Baseball informed youth organizations, including Little League, that effective immediately, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8" (or the "Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8" at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30-inch drop 10 variation of the Easton Ghost X only. Pursuant to Rule 1.10, this is now an illegal bat. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play.

All parents, coaches, and umpires must check their bats and remove these bats from play if they are in possession of these bats.

Any questions regarding returns, refunds, or warranty claims for the Easton Ghost X 30/20 should be directed to Easton at ghostreturn@easton.com.

Please visit USABat.com/Decertified-Bats for more information.

More information on how the USABat Standard impacts Little League can be found at LittleLeague.org/BatInfo.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you all for your attention to this matter.
