LBL USABat Rule

LBL in February 2017 adopted the USA Bat rule and it will be enforced for the 2018 season.  Senior Pony and Travel, please see the end section.



There are a number of websites that have more information about the new bat standard, and if you need more direction or information, please reach out.  The league is working to acquire a bat for each team this year, in order to ease the financial burden on our families and to allow everyone time to find the right bat for their player. 
Barrel up to 2-5/8 “ allowed as long as bat is stamped:


If you have a child playing at the Jr A or Jr AA levels and your child uses a Tee Ball bat (26 inches or smaller) you will have the option to use your old bats.  The Bat must be clearly marked with the old BPF 1.15 logo and you will need to obtain a sticker from USA Baseball.  The sticker and more information about this can be found at: https://usabaseballshop.com/products/usabat-tee-ball-sticker?variant=44877922632

**Please note that Full Time Travel Teams, Senior Division Pony, and possibly Part Time Travel Teams play in tournaments and against opponents that have not converted to the USABat rule at this time.  These teams will follow the Pony, tournament and travel league rules.  Please check with the Senior Level Commissioner or Travel Directors.
