Updated BC Baseball Bat Rules

12/10/2017, 6:00pm PST
By Cloverdale Baseball

Finalized 2018 BC Baseball Bat Rules

Following are the 2018 BC Baseball Bat Rules for all divisions. These are consistent with Baseball Canada’s rules (which were confirmed at their November 2017 National Meeting) and satisfy the tournaments where we send our Provincial Winner teams in the US. They also mesh  with our bat standards from last year as well, so any bats which were legal in 2017 will still be legal in 2018.

T Ball   30 inch,   2 5/8 inch max diameter,  unlimited length/weight drop – bats with greater than 2 ¼ in. barrel diameter must be marked “USABat”

9U (Tadpole)  30 inch,  2 5/8 inch max diameter, unlimited length/weight drop - bats with greater than 2 ¼ in. barrel diameter must be marked “USABat”

10U & 11U (Mosquito)  32 inch,  2 5/8 inch max diameter,  unlimited length/weight drop - bats with greater than 2 ¼ in. barrel diameter must be marked “USABat”

13U (PeeWee)  33 inch,  2 ¾ inch max diameter,  -10 max length/weight drop, marked “BPF 1.15”, or “BBCOR”  or “USABat”

15U (Bantam) A/AA   42 inch,  2 3/4 inch max diameter, -10 max length/weight drop and must be marked “BBCOR”. Starting with 2019 season a -10 max length/weight drop.

15U (Bantam) AAA 42 inch, 2 3/4 inch max diameter, -3 max length/weight drop, Wood, or Wood Composite

18U (Midget) AA 42 inch, 2 3/4 inch max diameter, -3 max length/weight drop, and marked “BBCOR”

18U (Midget) AAA 42 inch, 2 ¾ inch max diameter, Wood or Wood Composite

Wood composite and wood bats are permitted in all divisions. Wood composite bats do not include any bat that has any metallic component.

Changes in bats at the 11U and younger levels for 2018 season as a Pilot Project for review after the season.
