Babe Ruth Bat Rules

Updated Monday April 2, 2018 by Terry Eby.

We often get questions about the rules on bats and sizes.  The following is from the Babe Ruth HQ website and applies to the Prep, Alliance and American divisions:

New Bats for New Rules!

Babe Ruth Leagues have changed their bat rules beginning January 2018.

Babe Ruth 13-15 Division - All non-wood bats must have the USABat Marking or marked BBCOR .50. Bat Barrel - 2 5/8".

Babe Ruth 16-18 Division - All non-wood bats must be BBCOR .50 and no greater than -3. Bat Barrel - 2 5/8".

Note: Solid one piece wood bats are permitted for use in all divisions and must conform to Rule 1.10. No laminated or experimental bats shall be used in a game.
