This video explains how to make the most informed decision possible for your next big barrel bat!
Do you know why you or your player should swing a drop 5 senior league baseball bat? This video answers why.
Little League Baseball is the most popular youth league in the nation. Their rules and restrictions can become confusing for some players, parents, and coaches. But, no need to worry, the team at JustBats.com is here to outline and explain the ins and outs of Little League bat rules.
USSSA (The United States Specialty Sports Association) is one of the largest baseball associations in America. However, Little League has more divisions and USSSA separates their rules and restrictions by age ranges. In this video JustBats.com explains USSSA's senior league bat rules.
USSSA has different rules and regulations for each age range.
- Ages 6-13: Players in this age range can use 2 1/4", 2 5/8", or 2 3/4" barrel diameter bats with a maximum length of 34 inches. There is no restriction on the length to weight ratio, but the USSSA 1.15 BPF certification is required. Or, you can use a wood baseball bat even if it doesn't feature that stamp.
- 14U & Below: You may use either a 2 5/8" or 2 3/4" barrel diameter with a maximum allowed length of 36 inches. Your bat must feature either the USSSA 1.15 BPF certification or the BBCOR .50 certification. Or, you may use a wood bat even if it doesn't feature either stamp.
- 15U & Above: Your bat must feature the BBCOR certification with a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter and a -3 length to weight ratio. Or, you can use an adult wood baseball bat.
Since 2012, all non-wood youth big barrel (and coach pitch) baseball bats must have the permanent USSSA 1.15 BPF “thumbprint” stamp or the BBCOR certification.
