2020 / 2021 Bat Rules


BAT RULE CONCERNS

COYBL will follow the current, 2019 USSSA, USA and Nations Bat rules for league play in 2020 and 2021.

Any Bats that are permitted by any of these three Nations programs are permitted in COYBL League play.

 This is done to lessen the financial impact on families.

If you go to a tournament, it is very important to check and see what bat rules they are using as they will have specific rules for that event and it may not follow what COYBL allows.

From time to time, USA, USSSA or Nations may ban a bat due to not conforming to their guidelines and COYBL will also ban those bats.

It is important to know that is you use a bat with a USA Baseball logo on it, unless it is on the USA Decertified list, it is permitted in league play.
