Bat change

Dear Parents and Volunteers, 
On Thursday, May 3, USA Baseball informed youth organizations that effective immediately, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8" (or the "Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8" at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30-inch drop 10 variation of the Easton Ghost X only. Pursuant to Rule 1.10, this is now an illegal bat. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play. 
All parents, coaches, and umpires must check their bats and remove these bats from play if they are in possession of these bats.
Any questions regarding returns, refunds, or warranty claims for the Easton Ghost X 30/20 should be directed to Easton at ghostreturn@easton.com. 
Please visit USABat.com/Decertified-Bats for more information. 


 

More information on how the USABat Standard impacts Little League can be found atLittleLeague.org/BatInfo.

Little League Bat Standards

Starting in 2018 new Baseball Bat Standards will be in place. Little League International has sent out an explanation below.
 

 2018 New Baseball 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.

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