DeMarini CF4 Passes Little League Waiver Test

Friday, February 18th, 2011

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.

Little League Bans Composite Bats

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

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.
