New Bat Standards for 2018

Metro Baseball League has recently voted to adopt the new USA bat standards beginning in 2018. Starting next year our travel baseball players will only be allowed to use USA Baseball regulated bats. These bats have just begun to hit the market. As has been typical of the past, the association will supply our travel teams with a limited number of bats for use during the season. The association will purchase team bats this offseason for use next season. If you are interested in purchasing a bat for your son please first visit the USA Baseball's website and review the list of approved bats. A link to USA Baseball's approved youth bat list is provided below:
