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 PRACTICES.
FOR TRAVEL TRYOUTS, PLAYERS CAN USE BATS DEEMED LEGAL WITH THE 2017 SEASON OR THE NEW 2018 BATS.
LBA In-House bat rules and certification requirements will not change for 2018.
Refer to the MBL website for the new MBL/MBT bat rules.
For any questions, contact the travel directors.
