We’ve fielded some questions about bats for the fall season.
As many of you are aware, Little League is adopting the new USA baseball bat standard beginning January 1, 2018. You can review this new policy here: http://www.littleleague.org/
What does this mean for the fall 2017 season?
Your player can still use a currently-approved Little League bat for the fall 2017 season, i.e. they can use their Little League bat from the spring 2017 season. However, come January 1, all of those bats will become illegal and will need to be replaced with a new Little League-approved bat that adheres to the new USA baseball bat standard.
If you have already purchased one of the new approved bats, your player may use this for the fall season and beyond.
