If the tournament or league you play in allows wood bats, then this bat should be legal for you. You may want to check with the league or tournament commissioner just to verify if bamboo wood bats are allowed beforehand, however.

Deciding between these two bats will ultimately come down to the preference of your player. The BamBooBat Bamboo Youth Wood Baseball Bat: HYBBY has the potential to be a bit lighter overall, and features a thinner handle than the BamBooBat Bamboo Wood Youth Baseball Bat: HGBBY Brown/Black. One wouldn't necessarily better than the other in terms of performance, you would just want to go with which style you prefer (handle thickness, weight of bat).
The BamBooBat Bamboo Youth Wood Baseball Bat: HYBBY features an approximate -4 to -6 length to weigh ratio, so the weight of the bat would be 4-6 less than the length. For example, a 30" BamBooBat Bamboo Youth Wood Baseball Bat: HYBBY would weigh 24-26 ounces.
BamBooBat has established themselves as one of the most premier Bamboo wood bat manufacturers in the business. Their favorite medium, Bamboo, is actually a grass and it provides some special benefits when used in baseball bats. First, strips of Bamboo are layered and pressed together with special epoxy to form a very tough billet of "wood". That billet is then turned down into the specific turning model the bat is destined to feature. The resulting bat is one that offers unmatched durability with a tensile strength greater than steel and a lighter swing weight than Maple designs (with comparable turn models). And to prove that the YHYBB lives up to its claim, BamBooBat is backing each model with a 100 Day Manufacturer's Warranty against breakage!
The BamBooBat Bamboo Youth Wood Baseball Bat: YHYBB features an approximate -4 to -6 length to weight ratio and is approved for play in Little League Baseball and other major Youth Baseball Organizations.
