7 & 8U COACH PITCH BATS

2011-03-24


The BAYB Board met last night and feel a clarification of the new bat ruling. Please look at picture, this is one variation of the stamp. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE FULL STORY FOR DETAILS.

For 7 & 8U bats;

IF the bat is marked COACH PITCH, it must have a 1.15 BPF rating also marked on the bat.  ALL other bats not marked COACH PITCH, but are approved Baseball Bats, are allowed.

IF  you find a bat that is NOT marked Coach Pitch.........BUY IT!
There are numerous places to find bats that will comply with this new rule in person and online.  It seems the main confusion is the markings.  Please remember that this rule is ONLY for bats that are Marked Coach Pitch.

Here's a nice website article on bats from Dick's Sporting Goods if you would like to read all information on how to purchase a bat, reasons behind the BPR rating, ect.
