On February 15, 2011 DeMarini announced that the 2011 CF4 passed the Little League waiver test, and has been reinstated as a legal bat for the 2011 Little League Baseball season. This is great news, as the CF4 has been one of the most popular bats for the past few years. Unfortunately, the Vendetta C6 did not pass the test. DeMarini has issued the following statement on their website:
02/15/2011: Little League Composite Barrel Moratorium Update. Thank you for your patience through this process. As of this morning, the 2011 Little League CF4 (CFL), has passed the waiver process and we have sent the results to be posted on their site.
The Little League Vendetta C6(VCL) did not. If your Little League Vendetta C6 is still within the warranty period and has not used its one time replacement we will offer a Little League CF4 (CFL) as its replacement. The original receipt would be required.
You can set up your DeMarini bat return by phone at (800)937-BATS or by filling out the DeMarini bat return authorization request.
Please keep in mind that Little League Baseball is one of many youth organizations. We recommend that you check with your specific organization for a list of legal bats.
