Little League Youth Big Barrel Bat Rules - JustBats.com Buying Guide

Watch to ensure your youth big barrel bat is approved for play in Little League!

Transcript

If you play in Little League and want to swing a big barrel bat, listen up. I’m going to give you the low-down on what you need to know before buying your next bat. There are three divisions in Little League that allow big barrel bats: Junior, Senior and Big League. All three allow only 2 5/8 inch barrel bats, but there are some big differences. In Junior League, which is ages 12 to 14, players are allowed to use big barrel bats that do not have a composite barrel. Composite barrel bats much have a BBCOR stamp. In Senior League, ages 13 to 16, and Big League, which is ages 15 to 18, players much use a BBCOR certified bat. This means the bat has a -3 and much have the BBCOR stamp. If you plan to use a wood bat in any of these leagues, the barrel cannot 2 5/8 inch and the handle cannot be less than 15/16 inch or 7/8 inch for bats under 30 inches. Little League does not allow bats with 2 3/4 inch barrels. Also, if your bat is heavily damaged or appears to have been altered to improve performance, it may be deemed illegal. If you’re still not sure what kind of bat you need, feel free to give our customer service team a call. We’ll be happy to help.
