Unfortunately, the 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 is USSSA certified and it is not legal for play in Little League.

So is there an advantage to using a Junior Big Barrel bat over a Senior League Bat?
There is no true performance or durability advantage to getting this 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (WTLSLO518J10) over a Senior League Bat. From what I typically see, getting a Junior Big Barrel Bat and using it in kid pitch baseball usually creates a disadvantage for durability. I do not usually see the thinner barrel walls in Junior Big Barrel bats offering much if any performance advantage over the Senior League bats.
Is there a break in period for this bat?
The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 will be hot out of the wrapper. No need for break in.
What is the real difference between this Junior Big barrel model and the Senior League model, since both offer the 26 inch length?
This 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (WTLSLO518J10) will be intended for use with Coach Pitch and Machine Pitch Leagues. Unfortunately, the Junior Big Barrel bats have barrels that are designed in a way that doesn't allow them to be very durable when facing pitching speeds that are above 40 mph. The Senior League bats are meant to face those higher speeds being faced in kid pitch baseball.
