USABat Standard

Aug 18, 2017 2:40:27 PM

What you need to know about the new USA Bat Standard for youth baseball

 

If your child is 14 or under, he/she might be affected by the new regulations that will take place on Jan 1, 2018. The bat standard is changing due to the belief that "a wood like performance would be more beneficial to the long-term standard and integrity of the game, and not that of a safety concern" -USA Baseball

By replacing the USSSA 1.15BPF stamps, USA Stamped bats will have a similar performance and pop to that of a wood bat.  Children 14 and under may also use 2-⅝” big barrels for the first time (with some exceptions to T-Ball).  


Better Baseball has the largest selection of newly stamped USA Certified Bats in stock.  If you would like to come and try some of these bats out and see the difference yourself, we highly recommend you do so.  We will have the best selection of both USA Bats and USSSA certified bats at both of our locations in Marietta, GA and Chamblee, GA as well as online. You can swing and try out any bats in our stores for FREE!

USSSA, and Triple Crown Sports youth baseball WILL NOT be implementing this rule change to their bat regulations. If you are 14 years old or younger and you play on a travel ball team, or are playing in a tournament governed by either USSSA, or Triple Crown Sports you can continue to use the bats marked with the 1.15BPF stamp at this time. 


The following organizations have said they will implement the USABat standard for the next season starting Jan 1, 2018. (click each link to be directed to each leagues official bat rules page)

• Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball
• Dixie Youth Baseball
• Little League Baseball
• Pony Baseball
• Dizzy Dean Baseball
• Perfect Game 


High School baseball will still use the current BBCOR certification 

Fast pitch and slow pitch softball WILL NOT be effected by these new rule changes. 

We will continue to update the public on any additional changes as the deadline of Jan 1st approaches. 
If you have any other questions about the new rule change  and how it might effect you, please give us a call and talk to one of our bat experts 404-467-4313
