On January 1, 2018 USA Baseball will be implementing a rule change to the bats. If you are 14 years old or younger and play Little League®, Babe Ruth & Cal Ripken, PONY, Dixie or AABC, you will need to use a new bat marked with a new USA Baseball stamp:
The bats currently on the market, which are marked with a 1.15BPF stamp, will no longer be legal for play in these leagues.
When will the new bats become available?
According to Easton, the new bats will be available on September 1, 2017. I look forward to getting my hands on the new bats to give them try. I’ll post my review as soon as they come out.
