    Out With the Old, In With the New - Bats That Is

    January 1, 2018 the new bat standard goes into effect. This will not affect the Senior Division BBCOR bats or Softball bats. It affects all non-wood and laminated bats used in Majors and below, Intermediate and Junior League.

    The new bats will bear the "USA Bat" logo signifying they have been tested and approved by USA Baseball, the governing body of all youth baseball organizations. All USA youth organizations, except USSSA, have agreed to the new bat standard.

    Along with the new performance standard, starting in 2018, the bat diameter shall not exceed 2 5/8 inches for the Majors, Intermediate and Junior Baseball divisions of play.

    Bats are expected to be in stores September 1.

Looking back, though, I guess the real problem is that since he's been six, I've pushed to get him to be the baseball player his brother is. I've done all the things with Brayden that I did with Drew... regular visits to the cages, private pitching lessons, baseball camps, sharing videos of drills. Nothing worked. Baseball never seemed important to him. But, I kept pushing. Read More
