Out With the Old, In With the New - Bats That Is

January 1, 2018 the new bat standard goes into effect. This will not affect the Senior Division BBCOR bats or Softball bats. It affects all non-wood and laminated bats used in Majors and below, Intermediate and Junior League.

The new bats will bear the "USA Bat" logo signifying they have been tested and approved by USA Baseball, the governing body of all youth baseball organizations. All USA youth organizations, except USSSA, have agreed to the new bat standard.

Along with the new performance standard, starting in 2018, the bat diameter shall not exceed 2 5/8 inches for the Majors, Intermediate and Junior Baseball divisions of play.

Bats are expected to be in stores September 1.

I Pushed My Son to Play Like His Brother and Pushed Them Both Too Hard

Three years separate my sons. My oldest, Drew, graduated from the Little League® program last year. Our league doesn't have a division beyond Majors, so he's playing for a few other teams in the area. He's doing great there, just like he did during his Little League days. As a Little Leaguer®, he played up in Majors as a 9-year-old, made the All-Star team each year, and was the best player in the league his final year. Drew did not get his talents from any family gene. His success came from hard work.

My other son, Brayden, is ten. He's never shown the dedication of his older brother, but I knew he had the ability to be just as good. The problem is that he just hasn't shown the interest. Looking back, though, I guess the real problem is that since he's been six, I've pushed to get him to be the baseball player his brother is. I've done all the things with Brayden that I did with Drew... regular visits to the cages, private pitching lessons, baseball camps, sharing videos of drills. Nothing worked. Baseball never seemed important to him. But, I kept pushing. Read More
