Is My Bat Legal?
The link will bring you to the current approved list of bats for each age group as well as a FAQ created by Little League officials (Majors Divison Little League Bat Rules).  If you are buying a composite barreled bat - unless you see the bat on the approved list for the appropriate age group, your child will NOT be allowed to use the bat in practices or games.

So how do I determine if my Major's division bat is approved?

Information on the composite baseball bats that have received waivers for the Little League (Majors) Baseball Division and below can be found here:Approve Composite Bats (This list is updated regularly, please download for latest version)

A listing of licensed, non-wood/non-composite baseball bats for use in the Little League (Majors) Division and below can be found here: Approved Non-Composite Bats (This list is updated regularly, please download for latest version)
 



The Senior division follows the bat rules handed down by MIAA Baseball Committee.  The link is to the ruling update issued by the MIAA Bat  (MIAA Bat Update for 2012) for the 2012 season.  If you are buying a composite barreled bat - unless you see the bat on the approved list for the appropriate age group, your child will NOT be allowed to use the bat in practices or games. 

So how do I determine if my Senior  division bat is approved?
A comprehensive list of approved and non-approved BBCOR non-wood bats from the NCAA Bat Certification facility at the Washington State University Sport Science Laboratory (WSUSSL) is available.  The WSUSSL website provides a user-friendly model and bat search engine.  The approved and non-approved lists can be searched specifically by bat categories including - manufacturer, model, length, and barrel class and are found at the following links:

NFHS BBCOR Certified Bats List


So how do I determine if my Junior division bat is approved? The Minuteman League follows the bat rules handed down by MIAA Baseball Committee and these rules apply to all players 14 and older.  The Junior league is only comprised of league age 13 players and are NOT subject to the MIAA rules.  If your child plays Middle School then his bad for Middle school must adhear to the MIAA Baseball Committee rules.
