Little League Bat Regulations

As of January 1, 2018, Little League will implement the new USA Baseball Bat Standard.  This new standard impacts baseball only.  Tee ball bats (26 inches or shorter) will not be affected at BRHLL.  For Minors, AAA and Majors Baseball, all 2017 bats and earlier are no longer legal for the 2018 Little League season.  Those bats will have a stamp that reads "USSSA bps 1.15."  For bats 27" and longer, players must swing a bat that reads "USA Baseball."  The stamp will most typically be green and well identified at stores like Dick's Sporting Goods.  The other change you will notice with the new "USA Baseball" stamped bats is that they have a larger barrel.  Previous Little League regulations limited the bat's barrel diameter to 2 1/4".  The new 2018 USA Baseball Bat Standard allows for a 2 5/8" barrel.  

We encourage you to explore the Little League website for more helpful information.  You may also visit the USA Baseball site for a comprehensive list of approved bats for Little League play.  If you have any questions, please contact the BRHLL President or VP of Baseball for help.


Little League Regulations on Helmet Modification

Our children's safety is our utmost concern, and, like the vast majority of youth organizations, Little League International requires our batters to wear helmets that meet National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) specifications and bear the NOCSAE stamp. As the popularity of helmet attachments (c-flap and similar hard-plastic extensions that attach to the ear flap) increase throughout baseball and softball, Little League International has issued regulations on whether helmet modifications are permitted in Little League play.  

Altering a helmet in any way (drilling holes, removing padding, etc.) may cause a manufacturer to void the NOCSAE certification of that helmet, making it illegal to use in Little League play. If you have altered your helmet or intend to, please contact the helmet manufacturer to determine if altering the helmet will void the NOCSAE certification. Note: face masks typically do not require drilling holes or other alterations to the helmet itself. Many manufacturers sell NOCSAE-certified helmets with a face mask already attached or with holes already included for a face mask attachment. 

Can we use helmets with c-flaps?

In order to use a helmet attachment in Little League play, the helmet manufacturer must provide a notice indicating that affixing the protector to the helmet has not voided the helmet’s NOCSAE certification. That notice must be shown to the umpire prior to the game. Little League International has issued a letter to all youth batting helmet manufacturers for clarification on whether or not adding to their helmets voids their NOCSAE certification.

If the manufacturer’s response is not listed on the Little League web site and/or if you have not received a notice, or the notice is not available, helmets with an attachment are not permitted to be used.


We encourage you to explore the Little League website for more helpful information.  This site includes a full list of manufacturer responses and guidance on whether or not their helmets are still NOCSAE-certified if an attachment has been added to the helmet.

BRHLL maintains a Lost and Found for misplaced gloves, bats, jackets and more. If you are missing something, please check the large container found outside of the 54th Street Concession Stand.  Due to our limited space, we will hold items for only a few weeks at a time.  Unclaimed items will be recycled for the Equipment Exchange Program.  Contact Christy Whaley with questions or ask a Board Member to point you to the collection of gear.
