This is a reminder of the important bat regulation changes happening in 2018. The governing body for our traveling baseball teams, MBL/MBT, is adopting the new USA Baseball bat regulations. These bats will have the USA Baseball stamp on them. The USSSA stamped bats WILL NO LONGER BE LEGAL TO USE IN ANY MBL/MBT GAME.
LBA WILL BE REQUIRING USA BASEBALL CERTIFIED BATS STARTING WITH ALL 2018 TRAVELING TRYOUTS. PLAYERS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TRY OUT WITH BATS NOT CONFORMING TO THE 2018 BAT RULES BELOW (USA Baseball and BBCOR certifications - depending on age).
LBA In-House bat rules and certification requirements will not change for 2018.
