New Little League Baseball Bat Standards - 2018


As of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard was implemented.

Little League-approved baseball bats that were approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity as of January 1, 2018. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.

NOTE: These changes only affect baseball divisions and don’t affect any divisions of softball.

Stafford Little League has purchased bats under the new standard for Minors, Majors, and Juniors Divisions.  Your child can use a team bat if you are unsure of which bat to purchase or do not feel comfortable committing to a new purchase.

Additionally, this new standard does not apply to Stafford Little League T-Ball or Grapefruit Divisions.
