New Bat Regulaltions

Little League is going away from the 2 1/4 bats for the 2018 season. These new and larger barreled bats, referred to as USABats, will have a maximum standard barrel diameter of 2 5/8. The 2 1/4 barrel bats will be illegal in 2018. In other words, no more “youth” barrel bats come 2018—instead USABats with a 2 5/8 diameter. They will have no required minimum or maximum drop (like BBCOR).

Along with the change to a bigger barrel size in Little League baseball comes yet ANOTHER performance factor change. Currently the 1.15 BPF (bat performance factor) is the standard. The new standard will be similar to .50 BBCOR standards at the same time the barrels go bigger in 2018. Meaning, Little League bats will perform with less pop, hence, a harder bat and come with a different stamping the than the 1.15 current requirement.
