NEW BAT RULES:

The Groton-Dunstable Youth Baseball League is a Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Program.  Like all other programs, we must adhere to the rules set nationally for equipment.  This year, USA Baseball (the governing authority for bats), has revised the material and manufacturing rules for the bats used in our league.  THIS MEANS THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE TO REPLACE YOUR PLAYER'S BAT PRIOR TO THE 2019 SEASON.  Why?  Over the last decade, bat manufacturers were allowed a fairly wide selection of materials and manufacturing practices.  This resulted in the marketing of the so-called "trampoline" bats.  These bats imparted additional energy to a hit baseball raising safety concerns.  In 2018, USA Baseball started limiting the materials manufacturers can use, as well as dictating the overall weight of the bats.  Please see the table below for what is now required.  Any bat used in our league MUST HAVE THE MARKINGS SHOWN under the 2018 column.
