We have heard Little League may be bothered by the lack of ANY other youth baseball organization following their lead when they banned composite bats.
Previously, Little League had researched and adopted baseball bat standards for itself and most other youth leagues. By doing this, everyone was always in agreement of what standards needed to be put in place on bats. Moving forward, Little League may not allow other youth leagues to “piggy back” on all of their work, leaving all the other organizations to fend for themselves and decide what bat standards to enforce and not enforce.
If this happens, it may create two standards of youth baseball bats. One standard for 2 1/4″ Little League baseball bats and another for 2 1/4″ Pony, USSSA, Nations, Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth and Dixie baseball bats.
