Finalized 2018 BC Baseball Bat Rules


Jan. 10, 2018


The following are the 2018 BC Baseball Bat Rules for all divisions. These are consistent with Baseball Canada’s rules (which were confirmed at their November 2017 National Meeting) and satisfy the tournaments where we send our Provincial Winner teams in the US. They also mesh  with our bat standards from last year as well, so any bats which were legal in 2017 will still be legal in 2018.

 

- T Ball   30 inch,   2 5/8 inch max diameter,  unlimited length/weight drop - bats with greater than 2 ¼ in. barrel diameter must be marked “USABat”
