13U Bat Standard Changes


13U Bat Standard Changes

Starting January 1, 2020, our 13U division will have a new bat limit. A maximum of drop 8 (-8) will be the new bat restriction for the 13U age group. This will only apply to 13u events and teams playing in 13U events. See USSSA rule below.

Effective January 1st 2020, all 13U events and all teams in 13u events must use a maximum drop 8 (-8) bat with the official USSSA 1.15 BPF Mark permanently stamped. All 14u events and all teams in the 14u event must use a maximum drop 5 (-5) bat with the official USSSA 1.15 BPF Mark Permanently stamped.

Rule 7.01.C Penalty: (First Offense) –If the Umpire discovers that a bat does not conform to USSSA Rule 7.01.C until a time during or after which the bat has been used in play, it shall not be grounds for declaring the batter out and/or ejection from the game. If the Umpire discovers that a bat has been used to put a ball in play and before the next legal pitch, the defensive team shall have the choice of the result of play or the batter being called out and all runners returning to the base occupied at the time of the pitch. (Second Offense)–If a team is found in violation of this rule a second time, then the manager shall be ejected in addition to the First Offense penalty.
