New 2018 Bat Standards

As some of you may be looking at wish lists that include new baseball bats, we wanted to share information regarding new bat rules that will go into effect for the 2018 season.  With this new rule, any bats that are currently approved for the 2017 season with a "Little League Approved" designation will not be allowed beginning in 2018.  Bats conforming to the new standard are not available yet and will not be available until sometime in 2017.  Please keep this in mind if you are shopping for a new bat as anything you buy now will only be good for one season.  (This is a Little League and USA Baseball rule change, we are just the messenger.)

The following information is from Little League's website:

Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018.

Starting on January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Standard will be implemented across all Little League baseball divisions and Little League-approved bats will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity.

Age Determination Change - IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Age Determination Change:

Little League International voted to roll back the age cut off from April 30 to AUGUST 31, beginning fully with the 2018 season.  (This is an amendment to the previous plan to change the age determination date to December 31.)  The rule affects all players with May thru August birthdays in the year 2006 and after.  Players born in 2005 and earlier can complete their Little League career using April 30 as their age determination date.  Click here for the latest update from Little League, including age charts.

To allow for a smooth transition, MLL allowed affected players to choose to use the new August 31 age determination date for the 2016 season or remain with the previous April 30th determination date.  For the 2016 season, players with birthdays from May 1 thru August 31 in the years 2006 and later were able to opt to “play down” one year at their parents' discretion.  That means an 8 year old with a May thru August, 2008 birthday could have elected to play down to the Instructional level under the new rules rather than play in Farm/AA.  Given the mandatory nature of the rule change for the 2018 season, MLL will fully adopt August 31 as the age determination date for all players born in 2006 and later beginning with the 2017 season.

The age dates are updated on the registration page and the chart below lists the affected ages.  If you have any questions or are uncertain about your child playing up, please contact the league president (Gary McNaughton) or the player agent (Andrew Porter) at or , respectively.

 

Thank you,

MLL Board of Directors
