2018 Baseball Bat Rule Changes

New Cal Ripkin/Babe Ruth

Bat Rules



There is a lot of confusion and misinformation out regarding the new bat rules for 2018.  There are also a lot of baseball bat sales going on right now.  The CYB BOD advise right now is to hold tight and NOT purchase any bat at this time.  We are a chartered Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken program and fully expect that our program will be subject to the rules of those organizations.  We expect that the USA Baseball rules (the organization that oversees all amateur baseball in the US and is developing the rules for bats) will be adopted by BR/CR.


We will continue to follow developments and keep our membership informed as to what is adopted and how it impacts you and our program.


As of right now, it appears that 2017 non-wood 2 1/4 diameter marked BPF 1.15 will NOT be legal in 2018.


So please watch for announcements from CYB regarding this issue.  We'll keep you up to date with any rule changes that are implemented.
