Little League International will adopt new bat standards beginning on January 1, 2018 for the baseball and t-ball divisions, which means this upcoming 2017 season will be the last season for all current youth bats.
Bats that will be used after 1/1/18 are required to have the USA Baseball approval on them, and will start to arrive in stores in late Summer 2017. Therefore, any current youth baseball bat (at home, in our inventory or at the stores) can only be used for the 2017 season.
