Bat Regulations

No new bat changes in 2019, all bat changes made in 2018 are in place for 2019.


MBL has changed the bat regulations effective for the 2018 Season for 9U-15U.  The change was made to ensure that bat design provides a more wood-like standard, providing for the long-term integrity of the game.  Click Here for the MBL website with the new Bat Regulations.  You can also click here to take you to USA Bat Youth Bat Standards Q&A.


Legion and Junior Legion will follow MSHSL Standards (-3 BBCOR).


NPYBA in general plays games governed by one of three organizations:

  • MBL (league games and some tournament)---requires new bat regulations

  • MSF (tournaments)---requires new bat regulations

  • Gopher State (tournaments)---at this point has not changed to the new bat regulations

Please contact NPYBA if you have any questions.
