Bat warping

1

Had two different players that purchased the Raptor bats individually, at different times and realized by about game 4 of the LL season that both of their bats were warped, not straight. Checked for misuse damage but did not find any. Not sure what could have caused this but odd that both bats did the exact same thing.

Effective on January 1, 2018, USA Baseball™ is mandating a new bat performance standard as well as allowing the use of 2 5/8” BIG BARRELS for all age levels. No bats previously approved for use in Little League Play (Junior League Baseball and below) will be permitted to be used in any Little League game or practice, or other Little League function, event, or activity.

Along with Little League Baseball®, the following organizations are participating (in alphabetical order): American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball, and PONY Baseball.

USA Baseball’s national member organizations believe that a wood-like performance standard will best provide for the long-term integrity of the game. The new standard will not have a drop-weight limit, so young players can use bats made with lightweight materials. And while wood is a scarce source, the new bats will be designed to perform much like wood, where its performance will be limited to the highest performing wood.



Starting on January 1, 2018, all bats must be marked with the USABat label (see above) in order to be used in Little League Baseball®. All bats marked with the BFP 1.15 will not be permitted to be used in any Little League activities, including practices or games. All new bats that bear the USABat licensing mark will be permissible for play in the leagues and tournaments of the participating youth baseball organizations.

Current league-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017.
