Bat Buyer Beware

Updated Saturday May 20, 2017 by LMLL.

Before any LMLL parent or player goes bat shopping for the upcoming spring season, we wanted to give everyone the heads-up about forthcoming changes regarding Little League International's standards governing bats.

As of January 1, 2018, Little League will adopt the USA Baseball Bat Standards. Once those standards take effect, some bats that currently are approved may no longer be eligible for use in Little League games.

We encourage everyone to check out the explanation on the official Little League website.

This doesn't mean you shouldn't run out with your Modell's coupon and pick up a new bat for the 2017 spring, summer or fall seasons. We just want you to be fully informed before making that investment.
