USA Baseball Bat Standard Change 2018 , Why, When, What?


March 3,2018

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, If you have yet to hear, starting January 2018, bat standards for Little League (14 and younger) will change to a more restrictive bat. The barrels on the bats can be 2 5/8—just larger than the 2 1/4 of previous years. The rule change will only affect those who play in leagues governed by Little League International, and of course, RBSA IS LITTLE LEAGUE COMPLIANT. RBSA ADHERES TO ALL LL REGULATIONS. 2018 Compliant bats will have a logo, similar to the images below.

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. To identify officially sanctioned youth bats, look for the “USA Baseball” licensing mark, located on the taper.

On Saturday, March 3 rd , RBSA is offering purchase discounts in conjunction with DICK’S Sporting Goods in Paramus, located on Route 17 North.

Todd Frazier on Little League glory, Yankees love and Frank Sinatra

Yankees Todd Frazier

By Steve Serby

July 30, 2017 | 12:48am

New Jersey native Todd Frazier, recently acquired by the Yankees in a trade with the White Sox, takes a swing at some Q&A with Post columnist Steve Serby.

Q: What are your favorite Toms River memories growing up?
A: Oooh man. … We won the national junior peewee Pop Warner championship when I was 8. I won the Punt, Pass and Kick when I was 9. When baseball comes around, it’s crazy. I remember having 2,000 people at our Little League games at 12 years old when we played against the rival Toms River … going to the high school football games which were unbelievable, to scoring 1,000 points. I remember when I scored 1,000 points, both my brothers did the same things, in basketball. Just the friendships I made, and just the love I have for that city.

Q: Why is Toms River so special?
A: I don’t know, man, it’s crazy. It’s a who-knows-who there, to be honest with you. You go to a regular grocery store, everybody’s asking about you, “You’re doing a great job,” this and that. Everybody takes pride in what they do, and especially when it comes to baseball. We run camps all the time in the offseason. We try and give back, me and my brothers, as much as we can, so we can have, hopefully a couple of more Todd Fraziers coming up (smile). It’s just a fun town. It’s a town filled with excitement every day, and sports plays a big role there,
