NSLL Approved Bat Information


Little League® International has assembled an online resource page dedicated to baseball bat information, that includes the latest bat information, current Little League Baseball® rules and regulations governing bats, and a series of frequently asked questions.

As of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard was implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that were approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity as of January 1, 2018. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit



The NSLL penalty for the use of an illegal bat is as follows;

Approved bat list will be posted at the Concession stand. NSLL will perform spot checks throughout the season in all Divisions. Coaches will ultimately be responsible for checking of bats. If a batter enters the batter’s box with an illegal bat or is discovered having used and illegal bat prior to the next player entering the batter’s box then the batter is out for illegal action.  The defensive manager may elect to take the result of the play in-lieu of the batter being called out. First violation and the offensive team will lose one adult base coach.  Second violation the manager will be ejected from the game. (and the next played game).  If a player is called out for using an illegal bat without completing the at-bat, then the at-bat does not count toward minimum playing time.
