Babe Ruth League will not have any changes to its current bat requirements for the 2017 season. However, please be advised that new bat standards and testing will be put into place beginning with the 2018 season. Inventory for the 2018 season is anticipated to be in stores as of September 1, 2017. If you are approached by any families, parents or players, we ask that you tell them to be cautious with their purchases for 2017. With the exception of BBCOR bats, no other bats will be grandfathered for the 2018 season. Please visit www.baberuthleague.org for the latest updates.
