Bat Rules

Bat Rules

Coulee Region Sports League has updated the baseball bat rules to allow both USSSA (1.15 BPF) and USABat certified bats. Whichever bat your players use however should follow the USSSA or USABat regulations.

For example: If you have a 14U player, and he brings a USSSA 1.15 BPF bat, then the bat should not be more than a -5 ratio (a 32" bat can weigh no less than 27 ounces) as specified by USSSA.

The reason for this change is to allow players and families to be able to purchase whichever bat their respective team will be using for the majority of their 2018 season. Also, many local area tournaments allow both standards, while on the eastern side of Wisconsin & many parts of Minnesota (including all MBL sanctioned tournaments) use USABat standards.

To help minimize confusion, both copies of the rules are included below. Please follow these rules if purchasing a new bat.
