2018 Bat Rule Change

Updated Thursday October 12, 2017 by Donnie Snyder.

On January 1st, 2018, Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth have approved the use of composite bats with a 2 5/8" barrel. They MUST have the USA stamp on them. Please see PDF file below for additional information. These bats cannot be used in Fall Rec Ball. They can be used in the Spring.  For a list of approved bats, please visit: https://usabat.com . Please note, softball has NOT changed, they just need to be marked "official softball" or "official fastpitch". For more information, visit: https://www.baberuthleague.org/bat-rules.aspx .
