In an effort to help our Little League families as best we can with this transition we have scheduled a USABat Demo Day for December 9th at Delaney Park from 2:00 – 4:00pm
There are many options for these new bats and the costs range from $50 - $300 so we thought it would be helpful if our players have the option to try the bats before making a purchase. Foskett Sporting Goods (our local equipment retailer) and Easton have teamed up to make this possible for us. More emails to follow on the details of this USABat Demo Day.
Youth baseball bats will be undergoing some changes for the 2018 seasons. Effective January 1, 2018, USA Baseball (the governing body for Little League Baseball) will implement their new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats. The new USA Baseball bat standard, or USABat, will allow youth baseball organizations to reach their goal of wood-like bat performance in order to preserve the long-term integrity of the game, as well as instill a sense of uniformity among leagues.
Delaney Park Little League is required to adhere to the new standard. As such, the league will be providing every team in all baseball divisions (except tee ball) with two compliant “team bats” - players are NOT required to have their own bats, but if they do, they must be compliant with the new standard as well. The new bat standard is NOT applicable to any Softball divisions.
Tee Ball bats will be considered compliant to the new standard with the addition of a sticker from USA Baseball. The league has already purchased these stickers and will distribute through Spring season coaches.
Little League® International has assembled an online resource page (found here) dedicated to baseball bat information, that includes the latest bat information, current Little League Baseball rules and regulations governing bats, definition of terms, the moratorium on the use of composite bats, and a series of frequently asked questions, along with answers, and a linked page listing compliant bats (usabat).
DPLL recognizes that many players do want to have their own bat, and that some families use the holidays as a time to purchase new bats. Please note that many stores are currently selling last year's non-compliant models at deeply discounted prices. These non-compliant bats will NOT be allowed for play in 2018 and beyond (starting with our Spring season).
To identify officially-sanctioned youth bats, look for the “USA Baseball” licensing mark, located on the taper.
With one of the biggest fall registrations we've seen in years, this season is looking to be quite exciting!
Please contact your manager or coach for information regarding game and practice schedules, uniforms, equipment, etc.
