The new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat), which will apply to Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball,will be implemented on January 1, 2018, allowing the bat manufacturers sufficient time to bring these bats to the marketplace.
It is important to note there will be no change for Fall 2017 to youth baseball organizations’ bat rules. All bats, currently accepted for the respective leagues, remain permissible through December 31, 2017. Check out the link below for more information on the new bat standards.
