USA BAT STANDARD CHANGE FOR 2018

 
In conjunction with USA Baseball and its other participating national member organizations, PONY Baseball has adopted the new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat). Effective January 1, 2018, with the exception of -3 (BBCOR certified), all other minus factor bats (-5, -7, -9, etc.), must be USABat certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and tournament play. Minus factor bats -5, -7, -9, etc. used in 2017 will be illegal to use in 2018.
 
 

 

* EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY *


Effective immediately, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8” (or the “Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8” at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30-inch drop 10 variation of the Easton Ghost X only. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play.
