NEW AGE RULE TO TAKE EFFECT FOR 2016

Little League Baseball, Inc., the organization that charters Little League baseball and softball programs worldwide, has for a third time clarified the change in the league age determination date for baseball that was approved at the congress in Minneapolis in April 2014.

Under new guidelines promulgated in late August 2015, players born in 2005 and earlier will have their league age determined under the rule that was in effect from 2006 through 2014. For these players, league age is the player’s age on April 30 of the playing year. Therefore, the oldest players eligible for Major Baseball in 2016 were born in May 2003.

Players born in 2006 and later will use August 31 as the league age determination date. For these players, league age is the player’s age on August 31 of the playing year.

NEW BAT RULE FOR LITTLE LEAGUE 

Little League has also introduced new bat rules for its baseball divisions effective with the 2018 season.

Starting in 2018, Little League will use a new standard being formulated by the U.S. Amateur Baseball Federation (USA Baseball) called USABat. This standard will closely parallel the BBCOR bat guidelines already used by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. BBCOR stands for “Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution” and it focuses on how much of a trampoline effect the barrel of a bat has on a ball. The theoretical effect is to make aluminum bats behave in a similar manner to wooden bats.

This means that many of the bats that have been in use in Little League over the last few years will no longer be allowed after the 2017 season. Parents should keep this in mind when buying bats for their children.

It should be noted that larger-barrel bats will most likely be legal in Little League; however, they must meet the USABat standard and thus will be heavier than the ultra-light bats that have been used recently and that have produced a dramatic increase in home runs, both at the local league level and in tournament play.
