New Bat Regulations

Don't Buy the Wrong Bat!

Updated Friday December 29, 2017 by Capitola-Soquel Little League.

Are you thinking of buying a bat as a holiday gift? Make sure you understand the new USABat regulations before you purchase a new bat.

Beginning with the 2018 season, non-wood and laminated bats must have USA Baseball logo signifying that the bat meets the USABat – USA Baseball's Youth Bat Performance Standard. No bats previously approved for use in Little League Play will be permitted to be used in any Little League game or practice.
