USA Baseball's USABat Standard in Effect for 2018 Season: Little League Baseball® has adopted the USABat baseball bat standard that will take effect on January 1, 2018. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, but will not be permitted for any Little League practices or games beginning January 1, 2018, and the 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. The new bats are permitted for use during the 2017 Fall Ball season.

*NOTE REGARDING SOFTBALL BATS*
The composite moratorium only applies to baseball bats with 2 1/4 inch barrels. It DOES NOT apply to any divisions of Little League Softball. Also, there is no list of approved softball bats. In softball, the bat only needs to meet the specifications of Rule 1.10.
