2018 USA Baseball Bat Standards

Dear WHLL Families,

 

As you probably know, Little League International as well as all others youth baseball leagues (Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth, etc) have revised their bat performance standards and new standards will be in place for the 2018 spring season.

 

The new USA Baseball approved bat will have a performance and response very close to one that a good wood bat has. This applies to baseball bats only.

 

West Hartford Little League supports these new standards as it is a major step to safer play.  When purchasing a new bat please make sure to look for the USA Baseball stamp, it will be a green label on the wrapping and will be a white stamp ON the actual bat.  

 

Due to the rule change from USA Baseball, all bats that were used in 2017 (and earlier) will no longer be valid for the 2018 season

 

This change will not be without some confusion and cost to our players. This message is intended to help our families through this transition.

 

 

1- We anticipate that this will be a hot item during the holiday season. We are working with Dick’s Sporting Goods in arranging a WHLL Appreciation weekend sometime before the Holidays.

 

2- Listed below is a link to a guide for choosing a correct bat based on the player’s age size and weight. There are additional internet sites that provide these selection guidelines.

WHLL will be purchasing some appropriately sized bats and will be placing them in the equipment boxes located at all the fields.  It will be expected that players and coaches return those WHLL marked bats to the equipment box after games and practices so that they are available to others. 

 

RECYCLING BATS

We are working on a collection process for bats that are not USA Baseball approved.  This will include collecting bats and donating them to Pitch In for Baseball, an organization in Pennsylvania that will send them to baseball programs in other countries. More details on donation locations and date to come.  

 

We will continue to advise you on bat updates as they occur.  If you have any questions please contact us at 

 

 

Sincerely,

 

WHLL Board of Directors
