Read this before you buy a baseball bat for the 2018 season
Little League Baseball has adopted new regulations for bats -- these rules will apply to Somerville Little League starting in the 2018 season. Moving forward, all bats must meet the "USA Baseball Standard."
Below are two relevant excerpts from the Little League site:
Minor/Major Divisions: The bat shall not be more than 33 inches in length; nor more than 2⅝ inches in diameter, and if wood, not less than fifteen-sixteenths (15/16) inches in diameter (7/8 inch for bats less than 30") at its smallest part. Wood bats taped or fitted with a sleeve may not exceed sixteen (16) inches from the small end. NOTE: Solid one-piece wood barrel bats do not require a USA Baseball logo.
Tee Ball: Under the USABat standard, certified Tee Ball bats (26" and shorter) will feature the USA Baseball mark and text which reads ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS. All Tee Ball bats must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying text. 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.
Registration for the 2018 Little League season will open sometime in January or February. We will have T-ball, Farm, Minors and Majors leagues. If you have any questions or would like to be added to our email list, email Dan O'Sullivan at
