In an effort to help support local leagues throughout this adoption of the new USABat Standard for Little League Baseball®, Little League International is providing local leagues who have chartered a Tee Ball program in 2018 with 25 free USA Baseball Tee Ball Stickers that can be used in their Tee Ball programs.
As you are aware, the USA Baseball USABat Standard will officially be implemented in all Little League Baseball programs at the Junior League division and below, effective January 1, 2018. Please note that as part of the new standard, all Tee Ball bats in the Little League Baseball Tee Ball program must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying text. It is important to understand that Tee Ball bats (lengths 26” and shorter) 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 for use with approved Tee Ball baseballs approved for Little League play.
The free stickers are included here. Instructions for how to use the stickers are below. For more information on the USABat Standard, including an approved bat list, approved list of Tee Balls and additional FAQs, visit USABat.com and LittleLeague.org/BatInfo.
Please note that leagues in need may also visit LittleLeague.org/BatGrant for information about how they can apply for assistance in receiving bat kits to further help with this transition.
