Please hold off on buying bats for now. The USABat stamp bats will be available starting in September 1, 2017. There are still discusses on 2 ¼ and bat sizes. Little League has decided to allow 2 5/8 barrel size bats with the USABat stamp on them as well as the 2 ¼ barrel size bats. With that said, most people has mentioned that most bat manufacturers are inclined to make more 2 5/8 barrel bat size. My understanding is that every Organization will be making adjusting to the new standard….the only organization who will not be following the change is USSA Baseball which are made of travel ball tournaments around the country.
The league will discuss the changes and standards before the winter registration….as for the summer season registration which is this week we will be okay.
