Effective Jan. 1, 2018 - NEW* USA Baseball Bat Standard
The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat), which will apply to bats that are classified below the NCAA and NFHS level of play, will be implemented on January 1, 2018, allowing the bat manufacturers sufficient time to bring these bats to the marketplace.
USA Baseball has concluded that recent advancements in science, engineering, technology, and the materials available to fabricate non-wood bats, now allow the manufacturers to construct youth bats that can perform at a wood-like level through the entire range of lengths and weights of youth bats.
All Non Solid Wood Baseball Bats Must have the NEW USA Baseball Stamp of Approval for the 2018 High School & Collegiate Season. Private Tournament Company's and Tournament Facilities adhere to Tournament Rules.
