2018 Bat Information


There has been a lot of talk about the new bat rules rolling into 2018.

If you're wondering about the bat you purchased last year and is it still legal to be used in 2018, the short answer is no.

Now, Tee-ball players, you're in luck. It looks like they've made an exception for you.

"Tee Ball bats that were produced and/or purchased prior to the implementation of the new standard can be certified using an Approved Tee Ball Sticker via the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program (USABaseballShop.com) beginning September 1, 2017."

More information can be found here: Tee Ball Sticker Program

Official Little League Bat Rules

**BBCOR stands for “Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution.” This standard regulates how much energy is lost during the bat’s contact with the baseball.

Wood Bats

If you are using a solid one-piece wood barrel bat and the barrel diameter does not exceed 2 5/8 inches. Your bat is acceptable (without pine tar or other adhesive substance on it).
Are you interested in purchasing a wood bat? Prairie Sticks is a Red Deer based company who will deliver one right to your door.

IMPORTANT: Centennial Little League has provided wood bats to the coaches for the players to use. If you or your player brings their own wooden bat, Centennial Little League is neither responsible or liable for any occurrence causing the player bat to be unusable for play prior, during or after Centennial Events not limited to games or practices. Instead, Centennial Little League recommends that all players utilize the bats we have provided.
