IMPORTANT BAT INFORMATION

Before purchasing your player a new bat for the Spring 2018 season, PLEASE READ THIS INFORMATION.

Starting January 1st, 2018, Little League International will adopt the new USABat Standard.  This means that all metal baseball bats must be marked with the "USA Baseball" logo. These bats are now available for purchase as of September 1, 2017.  This new standard affects all of Foothill Farms Little League divisions, with a little exception for teeball.  Wooden bats are still OK to use.

***Any metal bats used in previous seasons in the Coach Pitch through Juniors divisions will NOT be legal to use starting in 2018.  Any metal bats purchased without the USA Baseball marking will NOT be legal to use starting in 2018.***

This new standard does not apply to teeball bats (26" or shorter).  There is a sticker program where you can purchase a USA Baseball sticker to mark your teeball bat that was purchased before the new rule.  Accompanying that sticker will be text that reads "Only For Use With Approved Tee Balls".

*When you purchase your player(s) a new bat, remember to make sure it is a 2018 model with the USA Baseball marking on it.  A trusted online store that a few of our coaches purchase their players' bats from is www.justbats.com.

Please reference the links if you have any further questions about the new bat standard.  Let us know if you have any other questions.
