Baseball Bat Standards


Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit

Little League® International has assembled an online resource page dedicated to baseball bat information, that includes the latest bat information, current Little League Baseball rules and regulations governing bats, definition of terms, the moratorium on the use of composite bats, and a series of frequently asked questions, with answers and licensed bat lists.

Dunbar Little League will provide approved bats for game use in 2018. Should you wish to purchase your own bat for practice please ensure it has the USA Baseball Bat logo on it (see logos above). If unsure when purchasing your bat make sure to ask the sales representative if in doubt. Local suppliers advise that these bats will be available this Fall.
