With the Little League® International Board of Directors formally adopting USA Baseball’s new standard for bat performance testing, Little League International fully supports this program. For more than seventy-five years, Little League has used improvements in science, engineering, and technology to take the sport of baseball to higher levels. By utilizing the most current advancements available, manufacturers can now develop bats with a wood-like performance, which is important for the long-term success of the game.
Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball® has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then. That includes the moratorium prohibiting the use of all 2 ¼ inch barrel baseball bats constructed with composite material in the barrel, unless approved.
Visit LittleLeague.org for detailed information. Little League looks forward to working with USA Baseball, and will begin educating our local leagues, and the parents of our 2.1 million baseball players, preparing them for the important change coming in 2018.

Throughout the winter of 2016, Little League® International held meetings with District Administrators, Assistant District Administrators, and other volunteers at each of our nine regions throughout the world. At each of these meetings, updates and changes to Little League Rules and Regulations were discussed, and at the conclusion of the meetings, these potential new rule and regulations were amended to reflect the direct input from the attendees at these meetings.
The amended agenda was then distributed to District Administrators to vote on whether or not Little League should adopt these new rules and regulations. In total, 463 District Administrators voted on these 10 items, which were then discussed, along with implementation strategies, at the annual spring meeting of the Little League International Board of Directors.
ITEMS TO BE IMPLEMENTED FOR THE 2017 SEASON:
Baseball and Softball Major, Intermediate (50/70), Junior, Senior, and Big League:
This change provides participants at these levels of play the ability to participate in two divisions, provided they qualify under age requirements, Residency/School Attendance Eligibility Requirements, programs, and divisions of play. A player may only be selected to one Tournament team, and must meet tournament eligibility requirements for that specific division.

Little League® International always welcomes feedback from every one of our 7,000-plus leagues. We feel that the only way to provide the best experience for Little Leaguers® and their parents is to hear from and listen to our valuable volunteers and participants in communities worldwide.
Little League conducted a very detailed participation research project. That research showed that parents, players, and volunteers want to see Little League® become, as a whole, a younger program, and give children an easier way to play Little League with their classmates. Our volunteer District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors carefully considered the results of the research, and ultimately changed the Age Determination Date for all divisions of Little League Baseball and the Little League Challenger Division® to August 31. This change will ensure that no child playing in the Little League/Major Division will turn 13 years old at any point during their final season in that division.
