As some of you may know, starting Jan. 1, 2018, USA Baseball is mandating a new bat performance standard. This new rule (followed by Little League, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken and PONY League) will allow the use of up to 2 5/8" barrel bats with the USA Bat Stamp on the bat. This new rule goes into effect for all players 14 and under who play in those leagues mentioned.
USSSA Baseball, as of this writing, will NOT be implementing this new rule. This means that travel teams and players playing in tournaments sanctioned by USSSA Baseball can continue to use bats with the 1.15BPF stamp. Also of note is that USSSA Baseball will allow new bats with barrel diameters up to 2 3/4". provided they are stamped by USSSA Baseball.
To help our customers navigate the new rules, we will be having multiple Demo Nights to find out which new bats best fit our customers. As always, our staff will have the up to date information so you will be able to purchase a bat that both fits you best and complies with the new rules for your league. Be informed before you make your next purchase.
First Demo Night for the whole lineup of Easton, Rawlings and Axe brand bats.......October 9th, 5p - 8p
