new USA bat standard for WBYB divisions

 

USA Bat Standards – for Fall Baseball and 2019 Spring season

WBYB will be moving to the “USA Baseball” youth bat standard starting in fall for three of our divisions, and continuing in Spring 2019 for four of our baseball divisions.  

Given trends in bat manufacturing/supply as well as our fall baseball partners in Glen Ellyn and Lombard and our spring Bronco/Pony division league (GDPBA) already adopting the USA standard, WBYB believes the timing of this move is appropriate and in the best interests of our league and families. 

In the upcoming weeks, WBYB’s rules will be updated to reflect the USA Baseball bat standard.   The biggest change will be that bats can now be up to 2 5/8” in barrel diameter.

The new bat standards will be applied to the in-house baseball divisions listed below.   Each team will be provided two team bats that are USA-stamped.

Fall 2018:

  • 3rd/4th grade division
  • 5th/6th grade division
  • 7th/8th grade division

Spring 2019:

  • Pinto Jr. division
  • Mustang division

  • Bronco division

  • Pony division

For T-Ball and Stallion divisions, players will still be able to use the former bat standard or opt to use a USA stamped bat.   This move does not impact softball in any manner.
