Little League Bat Changes

With the Holiday Season in full swing I wanted to take a moment to let you know about some important changes that will be implemented with the Little League bat standards beginning Jan 1st 2018.

When you walk around our park you see a lot of kids using expensive bats like the Easton Mako, The Mako bat is made of a two piece fully composite construction.  These are one of the bats that will have a moratorium on use come Jan1st 2018.  If your shopping around for a bat to use for the next few season you may want to research some before dropping a few hundred dollars on a bat that will only get a year of use.

Here are some links with more detailed information about the bat changes.
