2018 Bat Standards
Baseball OnlyUpdated Wednesday January 10, 2018 by Fred Steigerwalt.
First, this does not apply to Softball (Baseball Only) – Lucky for Softball no standards are changing.
Starting January 1, 2018 the Bat Standards used for youth baseball will change. Full information can be found on our website at http://hilltopleague.org/site/ClientSite/article/3007070. The website also contains a link to new approved bat list https://usabat.com/
In conjunction with Ultimate Sports Academy Batting Cages (behind Starbucks at 15 S. Eagle Road) and C&M Sporting goods the league will host a Winter Demo day.
Sunday, January 28th (at Ultimate Sports Academy Batting Cages)
(Ages are based on 2018 season – so if you were a 8u last spring you will be a 9u for this demo) – this way we can set the speed of the pitching machines to be age appropriate, we will also have tee’s on hand.
- Easton, DeMarini and Louisville bats will be made available to sample.
January 28th, 2018
12:00-1:30: Ages 6-9
1:30-3:00: Ages 10-12
The league will supply bats to each team bag that are legal based on the new rules, so do not feel pressure that your child must have their own bat!
