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!
If you play in Little League and want to swing a big barrel bat, listen up. Iâ€™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 youâ€™re still not sure what kind of bat you need, feel free to give our customer service team a call. Weâ€™ll be happy to help.
