2018 Approved Bats

As of January 1, 2018, the USABat Standard, developed by USA Baseball, is now in effect.  

The new USABat Standard is the product of a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts.  Little League Baseball has joined most youth baseball organizations in adopting this standard to regulate the baseball bats permitted for use.  BPF 1.15 Performance Factor bats may no longer be used as the new USABat standard models are now the only acceptable bats permitted to be used (all divisions).

The new bats approved through the USABat standard are available now, and can be purchased a Dick's Sporting Goods.  For more information on the USABat Standard, including an approved bat list, visit USAbat.com.
