What Baseball Bat Do I Need?

Good info on how to purchase the right bat for your player:
Too many young players use bats that are too heavy for them and end up struggling to learn how to hit properly!

Bat must be a USA Baseball approved bat:

  • Barrels up to 2-5/8" are approved for ages 14 and under

  • Bats must be stamped with the USA Baseball Mark

  • Either USABat Standard bats or BBCOR bats must be used at the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball and Junior League Baseball Divisions. At the Senior League Baseball Division, all bats must meet the BBCOR standard.

For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit

Note: Tee Ball Bats

All Tee Ball bats in the Little League Baseball® Tee Ball program must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying text. Tee Ball bats that were produced and/or purchased prior to the implementation of the new standard can be certified using an Approved Tee Ball Sticker (available September 1, 2017) via the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program for use with approved Tee Ball baseballs for Little League play.
