Bat Rule Change

Updated Sunday January 29, 2017 by Brad Reichert.

Little League Families, as we prepare for the 2017 season, we wanted to make you aware of an important change in the bat rule coming to little league.  Starting January 1, 2018 (after the coming season), ALL bats not made of wood will no longer be legal for use in little league play.  Little League International has decided to adopt the new USA Baseball rules for bats.  The new USA Baseball rules require bats to perform the same as a bat made of wood.  Look for more information on this change to be coming. 

 

The Lake Fenton Little League Board wants you to be aware of this change before you purchase a bat for the 2017 season.  Any bat you have or purchase today will NOT be allowed after this coming season.  They are not currently making the bats that will be used starting in 2018.

Thanks,
