Babe Ruth Bat Rules: 12U Youth Baseball - Buying Guide

Video Transcript

Babe Ruth Baseball’s 12 and under division is called the Cal Ripken division. Many people think they play in a league called Cal Ripken, so it’s important to note that it is just a division of Babe Ruth. Now for the rules. And they’re actually pretty easy to follow. First, your bat will need to have a 2 ¼ inch barrel diameter. If it’s an alloy or composite bat, it needs to be marked with a BPF 1.15 stamp. Doesn’t matter whether it’s the old one or the new one. If your bat is made of wood, and it has a 2 ¼ inch barrel, you should be good to go! And that’s it! If you have any other questions, our customer service team is here 24/7 to answer them for you. Just remember, from click to hit at!

Watch to ensure your youth bat is approved for play in Babe Ruth's 12U Cal Ripken Division!
