New 2018 Little League Bat Standards

DID YOU KNOW:  Little League baseball bat standards are changing...

Beginning January 1, 2018 Little League will implement the new USA Baseball Bat Standard.  

All players in will be affected by this change!  Bats used and approved for the 2017 season, will NOT be acceptable for use in the 2018 season.

Bats for 2018 must have the USA Baseball stamp to be acceptable for use! 

SYC is planning for this change and is purchasing bats that meet the new requirement.  Each spring 2018 team will have at least one league-provided bat for player use.

If you are planning to purchase a new bat, please ensure it has the USA Baseball stamp!
