Bat Regulation Change
New 2018 Bat Regulations

The EBA would like to make Edina families aware of changes in bat regulations for the 2018 Green/Travel season. Green teams participate in the Metro Baseball League (MBL) and Metro Baseball Tournaments (MBT) and they have finalized bat requirements for the upcoming season. They are mandating that all bats be compliant with USA Bat standards.

 

For Green/Travel players, this means:

 

10-13u: All bats must carry the new "USA Bat" stamp. All USA Bats will either be 2 1/4" or 2 5/8" in diameter. 2 3/4" bats will not be available nor will they be allowed. The largest "drop" in any bat weight is -10. Any drop weight greater (eg. -11, -12) will not one allowed. Any USSSA stamped bat used in league or tournament play in 2017 will not be valid for use in 2018 MBL/MBT play. 

 

14u: All bats must be either a drop 5 (-5) bat with a USA Bat stamp or a BBCOR bat with a drop 3 (-3). BBCOR bats do not require the USA Bat stamp.

 

15u: All bats will continue to meet the BBCOR drop 3 (-3) standard.

 

Items to be aware of:

  • A USA Bat (or BBCOR at 14/15U) will be required for 2018 Green/Travel tryouts.
  • MYAS will allow USA Bats for Gopher State qualifiers and their state tournaments. 
  • Visit https://usabat.com for FAQ and approved bat list.
