The Little League International Board of Directors has formally adopted USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing. As of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be in effect. 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. New regulation bats should start to appear in stores this fall.
