Upcoming Bat Changes for 2018
Warning for New Bats! Information about upcoming changes to approved bats for the 2018 season. Little League International has recently changed its bat standards, and most, if not all, bats used today will not be permitted starting next year. If your player's bat has the 1.15 stamp, it will not be able allowed for use next use as the new standard will be 1.00. The change is driven by Little League’s desire to make the performance of all metal bats similar to wood to protect the long-term integrity of the game. We are bring this to your attention now so that you may plan ahead for next year and avoid buying a $350 bat that will not be permitted in 2018.
