Decertified Bats

Effective immediately, the bats depicted below have been decertified by USA Baseball and are no longer approved for play in leagues that have adopted the USABat Standard, including but not limited to the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Babe Ruth & Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth & Dixie Boys Baseball, Little League Baseball, NABF Baseball, and PONY Baseball.

On January 1, 2018, USA Baseball implemented the USABat Standard for non-wood youth baseball bats. Under USABat, approved bats that feature the USA Baseball mark are performance tested and required to perform at a wood-like standard. The bats listed below have been compliance tested and ruled non-compliant under the USABat Standard.

Team representatives are asked to check your team’s bats and withhold these bats from play if your team is in possession of any. League administrators are asked to share this information with your umpires. If any of these bats are attempted to be used during competition, it should be considered an illegal bat and subject to league rules regarding the use of illegal or unapproved bats.

 Sanction Reminder:

We would like to take this time to revisit/remind all parks that intend to apply for sanction about an important (sometimes misinterpreted) requirement. In order for a park to be eligible to sanction with Dizzy Dean Baseball/Softball, a draft MUST be utilized. ALL players in an age group MUST be available for selection by ALL coaches.  Select teams or teams kept together from previous years IS NOT allowed.
