Bat RegulationsUpdated Friday November 3, 2017 by David Stimpson.
New Baseball Bats as of 2018
Dear Baseball Families,
We wanted to alert you to a new BASEBALL Bat standard that begins in 2018. With the holiday season approaching we wanted to send another reminder. We recommend you take this new standard into consideration before making any additional bat purchases.
Once the 2018 season hits ALL the bats we use today will no longer be allowed. We recommend you take this new standard into consideration before making any additional bat purchases. It is estimated that bats that meet the new standard will be available for sale starting fall of 2017. Any bat you purchase today will NOT meet the new standard
We wanted to bring your attention to this new standard well before it's adoption in 2018.
