Baseball Bats for the 2018 Season

Baseball Bats for the 2018 Season (and tryouts)

Starting in the 2018 season many youth baseball organizations are changing their bat standards.  The change will align bat standards with that of USA Baseball (the governing body of amateur baseball in the United States).  These changes will affect MISB in some capacities.

At tryouts:  MISB requires all players to try out with last year's bat.  MISB believes that having consistency in bats at tryouts is important to the process.

During the season:  MISB players will be required to get a new bat.  For starters, your child will need an approved bat for the Little League season.  They'll also need an approved bat for any tournament that plays Little League rules.

We recognize this is an inconvenience and an expense for many of you.  This is a mandate though and it will be enforced next season. Please let us know if you have any questions.
