Little League Bans Composite Bats

Little League Baseball placed a moratorium on the use of composite bats effective December 30, 2010. According to Little League Baseball, the ban was a result of “broken in” composite bats exceeding a Bat Performance Factor (BPF) of 1.15.

“The maximum performance standard for non-wood bats in the divisions for 12-year-olds and below is a Bat Performance Factor (BPF) of 1.15. The research found that composite bats, while they may meet the standard when new, can exceed that standard after a break-in process” President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball Stephen D. Keener explained.

While these bans leave manufacturers, dealers, and players scrambling, there could be a light at the end of the tunnel. Much like the composite ban by the National Federation of State High School Associations, bat manufacturers can try to receive a waiver by submitting their bats for further testing. Little League has created a list of approved composite bats and will continue to update the list as more bats get tested. Please check back frequently as this list is sure to grow.
