Little League International is implementing a change in the baseball bat standards effective January 1, 2018. Little League-approved bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. This change applies to ALL divisions in WULL with the lone exception of the Senior division. For complete details on the changes please follow the link to LLI's online resource page dedicated to baseball bat information.
All bats approved for use in 2018 will carry the USA Baseball logo seen below. The logo will be located on the barrel just above the grip. Please note that the actual logo on bats may not be in red white and blue as shown below but may be a solid color that matches other markings on the bat. If you are purchasing a new bat for play in Little League in 2018 (Tadpole through Junior Division) please be sure the bat you are purchasing carries the USA Baseball logo.
