On January 1, 2018 many organizations will be implementing a rule change to the bats. Many organizations hosting teams 14 and under will adopt a rule stating any bat used must possess a USA Baseball stamp on it. Bats that are USABats are big barrel, 2 5/8" bats, but are made of materials that create wood-like performance. It is important to note that these organizations also do not have a drop weight limit within their organizations. USSSA youth baseball is not implementing this rule change.
The current bats, which are marked with a 1.15BPF stamp, will no longer be legal for play in those leagues.
It is important to note that De Pere Baseball is NOT part of any of these leagues and is NOT subject to the rules as outlined above.
For the 2018 season, De Pere Baseball will allow its players to use either 1.15BPF small barrel bats OR the new USABats during league play. This applies to Pee Wee, KD, Pony and 14U Babe Ruth.
If your child is a tournament player, please recognize that you may go to tournaments that only permit USABat standards for a given tournament.
