Bat Requirements

*Please read before purchasing a new bat

Updated Thursday December 20, 2018 by Melony Winchester.

As you may have heard, there were new bat regulations imposed across the country for the 2018 baseball season Your Sandy Cal Ripken Board had voted to allow our players to continue to use the same bats they have used in the past for the 2018 season but the time has come that we must comply with the national standards.

For the 2019 Season, and seasons thereafter, all players participating in any Cal Ripken sanctioned activity must use bats meeting the requirements below. This includes tryouts, practices, regular season league games and tournaments and all post season play.

For Tee Ball

  • Bats must feature a USA Baseball T-Ball Stamp

For all other Cal Ripken Baseball

  • Must have USA Baseball Marking
  • Bat diameter must not be larger than 2 5/8"
  • No BBCOR Bats
