New Bat Rules

If you are shopping for bats to use in the 2019 season, please refer to the chart below to ensure you are purchasing a bat that can be used in GYBA.  

After January 1, 2020 USSSA bats will not be permitted for use in the GYBA. 

Starting January 1, 2018 USA Baseball implemented a new bat standard. Many of the sanctioning bodies of youth baseball including Little League, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth Baseball, Pony, and American Amateur Baseball Congress will be following this new standard.

The Greenfield Youth Baseball Association is not sanctioned by any of these leagues but we operate very closely to their rules and regulations so we have decided to implement this new standard on a gradual scale starting on January 1, 2020. For the 2020 season in the spring and the fall all players in the Rookie (5 and 6 years old), Minor (7 and 8 years old), Majors Minors (9 and 10 years old) and Majors (11 and 12 years old) must have bats approved by the new USA Baseball bat standard.
