The CBSL will be hosting a 2018 Easton Bat DEMO Day on Feb 10th from 9am - 11am at the Turf. Come check out the new bats and hit some balls on us to see which bat feels the best. There is no obligation to buy a bat, but If you like the bat, we are hoping to place a group order with Easton by Feb 17th. To qualify for a ~25% discount the CBSL needs to place an order for a minimum of 12 bats.
Below is a brief description of the new 2018 rules:
Starting January 1st, 2018, to be legal for play in Little League, Pony, Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth, AABC, AAU, Dixie Baseball and more, your bat will need the USA Bat Stamp on it!
Key USA Bat Standard Bat Facts include:
Approved YBBCOR 2 5/8’barrels will be legal for all ages (14 & under) in ALL of the above mentioned league play
The 2 5/8’ big barrel lengths will be much shorter than the current 2 5/8’ big barrels used in today’s games due to the new performance regulations put in place
NO 1.15 bats will be grandfathered for the 2018 season
The goal is to make Youth Bats perform like “Wood Bats”.
There is NO limit as to how light a bat can be, which should prove to be helpful to younger players
Larger barrels equal more contact, more contact equals less strikeouts, less strike outs equals happier hitter AND less pitches per game for the pitcher. All “positives” from the change.
According to USA Baseball, the governing body that oversaw the research and ratification of the new USABat standard, this change is being made for the “integrity of the game”, and not for safety purposes as LL baseball already claims to be very safe. However, the bat to ball exit velocity will be significantly lower and defenders will have more of a chance to react to balls.
