Little League Baseball is following a new USA Baseball Bat Standard starting with the 2018 season.


As a member of Little League Baseball, Central Amherst Little League adheres to this standard.


This change, made in the interest of player safety, introduces baseball bats made with new materials that perform more like wood and are offered in new sizes, including the larger 2 5/8-inch barrel.


IF YOU'RE BUYING A NEW BAT FOR THE 2018 SEASON... please make sure that it has the "USA Baseball" stamp. If it has the stamp, it's good for use in any house or travel league game.
