Little League Bat Standards

Anyone that has a child playing in Baseball Majors and below, if you were thinking about getting a new bat for you child that will last a couple seasons you might want to wait a year.

This coming 2017 Little League Baseball year will be the last year for the current Bat Standards. Starting in 2018 new Bat Standards will be in place. Little League International has sent out an explanation below.

Current 2017 Bat Standards

To be used in games sanctioned by Little League Baseball, a bat must meet Little League's current specifications and standards.

Little League (Major) Division and below: The baseball bat shall not be more than thirty-three (33) inches in length nor more than two and one-quarter (2 ¼) inches in diameter. Non-wood bats shall be labeled with a BPF (bat performance factor) of 1.15 or less.

Composite barrel bats are prohibited unless approved by Little League International. A list of approved composite barrel bats can be found on the Little League website, at: www.LittleLeague.org/batlist.

2018 New Bat Standard

Beginning with the 2018 Little League season, non-wood and laminated bats used in the Little League (league ages 12 and below) shall bear the USA Baseball logo signifying that the bat meets the USA Baseball Performance Standard. All BPF (bat performance factor) – 1.15 bats will be prohibited beginning with the 2018 season. Additionally, starting in 2018, the bat diameter shall not exceed 2-5/8” for these divisions of play.
