While it is not a requirement for players to participate in the ULLL, we know that many parents purchase a bat for their child to use in practices and games. For that reason we want to let you know that Little League International (which includes Upper Loudoun Little League) has adopted the USA Baseball Bat Standard for the bats that are used in Little League-related activities.

Most recently purchased bats — stamped with the “USA Baseball” marking — should meet this standard, but you should review the USA Bat website to be sure. If your bat does not meet this standard, it cannot be used in Little League games or practices.

Therefore, if you are planning on purchasing a bat, please go to USA Bat for more info.
