Senior League Bats – 2004 thru 2011

All of the following Senior League big barrel bats meet the 1.15 BPF standard, even if not marked as such. Easton did not start adding the 1.15 BPF marking to the Senior League big barrel baseball bats until May 2011. Note: This does not mean these are legal in USSSA play. Only bats with the new “USSSA 1.15 BPF Finger Print” logo (stamped or laser-engraved) are legal for play in USSSA baseball.

Little League International released information December 30, 2010

By . Posted on December 30th, 2010 in Little League, Uncategorized Comments: 0

Easton’s understanding is that the news does not signal the end of all-composite bats in Little League Baseball. It simply places a moratorium on all-composite bats that cannot be shown to remain underneath the 1.15 BPF standard in lab testing.

We are in the process of resubmitting our all-composite bats for testing and waivers. As soon as we have more information on specific models, we will pass it along. Thank you for your understanding and patience in the interim.

Please note: all-aluminum bats as well as composite handle/aluminum barrel bats are not affected by this announcement.

Dear local Little League Volunteers and Friends,

The following release is being provided to you for your information and dissemination to volunteers and parents in your local league.

Little League International Issues Update Regarding Composite Bats: Moratorium Imposed Immediately

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (Dec. 30, 2010) – Little League International has placed a moratorium on the use of composite bats in the Little League (Majors) Division and all other baseball divisions of Little League, effective immediately.

“Today’s decision of the Little League International Board of Directors Executive Committee is based on scientific research data from the University of Massachusetts (Lowell), which was contracted by Little League Baseball,” Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. “The maximum performance standard for non-wood bats in the divisions for 12-year-olds and below is a Bat Performance Factor (BPF) of 1.15. The research found that composite bats, while they may meet the standard when new, can exceed that standard after a break-in process.”

Local Little Leagues were first informed of the research last September.

“From the beginning, and throughout this process, we wanted to keep everyone informed,” Patrick W. Wilson, Vice President of Operations at Little League International, said. “Our intent was to provide local league constituents clear direction regarding composite bats. There is a process through which manufacturers can submit individual models for a possible waiver if they wish to seek it. Going forward, we will let our leagues know which ones meet the standards for the Little League Baseball (Majors) 12-and-under divisions, if any.”

On Sept. 1, Little League International placed a moratorium on composite bats in the Junior, Senior, and Big League Baseball Divisions of Little League. Subsequent to that moratorium, some composite bat models have received a waiver and may be used in those divisions. Information on the composite bats that have received waivers for the Junior, Senior, and Big League Baseball Divisions of Little League may be found here:

http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/approvedcompbats.htm

At present, no composite bats for the Little League (Majors) Division and below have received a waiver. If and when any models do receive a waiver, Little League International will inform its leagues of that decision.

The moratorium on composite bats, which now applies to all baseball divisions of Little League, does not apply to any softball divisions of Little League.

Sincerely,
Little League International

Welcome to the Easton Bat Rules Forum

By . Posted on March 16th, 2010 in Uncategorized Comments: 8

Welcome to the Easton Bat Rule Forum.  This is your home base for updates about the ever-changing landscape of bat rules.

You may already know, as of 7/9/10, the NHFS announced a moratorium on composite barrel bats used in High School baseball. This ruling comes on the heels of a similar moratorium handed down by the NCAA prior to the start of the 2010 College Baseball season. And, on 12/26/10, Little League Org.  issued a moratorium under similar circumstances.  These are just a few examples of the important changes taking place in our sport.

It should be no surprise that these changes to bat usage rules in competitive baseball have generated a lot of questions and confusion across the USA. At Easton, we don’t pretend to know all the answers, as many of the details surrounding this issue are still unraveling. But, we are in this together with our loyal users and our goal is to provide you with an outlet to  get updates and answers to common questions. We will continue to update those answers over the next several months as we transition into each of the new rules.

As a leading manufacturer of Baseball and Softball equipment and as a pioneer in baseball bat technology,, Easton feels that it is important for all of us to work through these changes together. Easton is committed to you – Committed to communicate the information you need to make informed decisions about your equipment and committed to remain at the forefront of innovation in order to provide you with the best equipment possible.
