USA bat rules will not be mandatory for MSBL games in 2021 and we will follow the same USSSA bat rules from 2020.
This is done to lessen the financial impact on families.
Please note that USSSA Baseball Tournaments and Gameday USA have decided not to follow the new USA bat rules for 2020 as well.
If you have a new USA approved bat, you can use it in League play for MSBL.
For a bat to be legal it must be permanently marked “1.15 BPF” “BBCOR” “USA” or be a wood bat. There are NO barrel restrictions
The 13U division bats must be stamped either 1.15 BPF, USSSA or USA Baseball and must be no lighter than a drop -8 length-to-weight ratio. Alternatively, “BBCOR” and/or wood bats may be used.
The 14U division will be the only division that must use a -5 or -3 bat.
