On January 1, 2018 USA Baseball will be implementing a rule change to the bats. If you are 14 years old or younger and play Little League®, Babe Ruth & Cal Ripken, PONY, Dixie or AABC, you will need to use a new bat marked with a new USA Baseball stamp:

 All players MUST have a bat that is certifield by USA Baseball (USABat).

 This standard replaces the 1.15 BPF 2 1/4 youth barrel bat. The new USAbat standard dampens the pop of bats to perform more like BBCOR. However, barrels on USAbats will be allowed a wider diameter (up from 2 1/4 to 2 5/8). The bats currently on the market, which are marked with a 1.15BPF stamp, will no longer be legal for play in these leagues.

Bats marked with the new USA Baseball stamp are available for purchase after September 1, 2017.
