As of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard was implemented. USABat Standard bats must be used in the Little League Major Baseball Division and below. Either USABat Standard bats or BBCOR bats must be used at the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball and Junior League Baseball Divisions. At the Senior League Baseball Division, all bats must be meet the BBCOR standard. Little League-approved baseball bats that were approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity as of January 1, 2018.
Please note: OLLB has made a considerable investment towards replacing the league’s bats in accordance with the new standard and these bats will be included in all team bags issued to Managers this year. Players are NOT obligated to purchase a bat of their own. However, if they choose to do so, it must be a USA Bat approved bat.
