New Bat Rule for 2018 Season

USABat Stamp of Approval

USABat Stamp of Approval

GVAA Members,

An Important Rule Change is coming in 2018 that will affect every player in our league.

Starting in January, Cal Ripken Baseball has implemented new bat rules that must be enforced at all levels in both our GVAA Rec and Travel programs. 

These new bats are called Youth BBCOR Bats. They are designed to act like wood bats and they must have a USABat Stamp of Approval to be legal for play. 

The Bats you are currently using will not be allowed during our rec & travel games.

With this rule change, there is obviously a cost. These new bats will range in price just like the bats you have now. 

To help our league and families transition to this new rule, GVAA will be purchasing and supplying each team in our Spring League with a BBCOR Bat.  

While many of you will still opt to buy your own new bat, we wanted you to know, you don't have too.  

We hope you take the time to read the new rules and the bat standards shown below. Our goal is to make the transition as smooth as possible.
 

These USABat Standard baseball bats are already on sale. Major brands like EastonDeMarini,Louisville Slugger, and Rawlings are in stores now with the USABat stamp.

Here Are the Key USABat Standard Baseball Bat Facts

  • Approved Youth BBCOR 2 5/8” barrels will be legal for all ages (14 and under) in Little League, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, PONY, Dixie, AABC, AAU.
  • The 2 5/8” big barrel lengths will be much shorter than the current 2 5/8” 1.15bpf barrels used in today’s game due to the performance regulations put in place.
  • All current youth baseball bats will continue to be legal in the above mentioned organizations through December 31st, 2017
  • 1.15bpf bats will NOT be grandfathered in for the 2018 season.
  • The goal is to make youth bats perform like a wood bat.
  • There will be no limit to how light a bat can be, which should be helpful to younger players.


Keep an eye on our website GVAABASEBALL.com and our Facebook page for the latest updates!

We are already making plans for the 2018 Season!


Sincerely,

GVAA Board of Directors
