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.
