New Bat Regulations for the 2018 Season

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 The new standard has roughly 20% less “pop”.  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.
