Please review this information carefully before buying a bat

Updated Wednesday January 25, 2017 by Arroyo Grande Valley Little League.

2017 Licensed 2 1/4" Bat List

The following is a list of bats with a 2 1/4 inch maximum diameter that are currently licensed for use in the baseball divisions of Little League (Little League [Majors] Division and below). Bats with metal or wood barrels may also be used in the Junior League and Intermediate 50/70 Baseball Divisons of play.

This list includes bats currently licensed with Little League as of December 5, 2016

This list includes all licensed models organized by manufacturer, including those composite barrel bats that have received a waiver from the composite-barreled bat moratorium. Little League placed a moratorium on all composite-barreled baseball bats for these divisions, which took effect on Dec. 30, 2010. A list of those composite-barreled bats that have received a waiver of that moratorium is available at http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/licensedcompositebats.htm, which includes photos of each bat.

Little League reserves the right to add to this list or make other changes as new information arises. This list was last updated on December 5, 2016.
This is only a list of licensed bats, not a list of all possible bats that could be used. Provided the bat meets the specifications of Rule 1.10 for the division of play, and provided the bat is not subject to the moratorium, it may be used. Any bat, even those appearing on this list, must meet all the specifications of Rule 1.10 for the particular division of play, including specifications regarding length, weight, diameter, markings, etc.

If the bat you are searching for does not appear on this list, please review Rule 1.10 to determine its usability in Little League play.

* Softball models improperly marked with both 1.15BPF and 1.20BPF markings .These models meet the standard and may be used in play. For more information please see http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/bats/Softball+Mismarked+BPF+Bats.pdf .

Note: Little League does not license any bats with 2 5/8 inch barrels.
