There is still some confusion on the new bat rules for Baseball.
Below is a much simplified version of the rules which we found helpful: note in our league we do not use approved Tball baseballs for minors/majors divisions so the option listed below is not available.
Stores such as Dick's, Target, Walmart, etc.. offer bats as low as in the $20 range, but The League will provide at least one "Team Bat" to share if you choose not to purchase.
There is also another Dicks 3 Day event (20% discount) this coming Friday-Sunday and Dicks does offer a wide selection.
Please also note that if your child intends to play baseball into Middle school on a Modified Team and/or into High School the ONLY bat standard allowed is BBCOR which is a drop 3 (-3) and a pretty big jump up in weight for most.
Thank You and please reach out if you have any questions or need further guidance.
Tee Ball Bats
Starting on January 1, 2018, all Tee Ball bats in the Little League Baseball® Tee Ball program must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying text. Tee Ball bats that were produced and/or purchased prior to the implementation of the new standard can be certified using an Approved Tee Ball Sticker (available September 1, 2017) via the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program for use with approved Tee Ball baseballs for Little League play. Tee Ball bats for Little League Softball® Tee Ball programs must follow the Little League Softball Official Regulations, Playing Rules, and Policies.

At Roberto's Kids, their global reach and leadership bridges the gap between different cultures through baseball. Their organization partners with communities as they develop and nurture social responsibility.
They achieve that through the collection and distribution of new and gently worn baseball equipment. They work with baseball leagues, charitable organizations, individuals and retailers in the United States, Canada and Latin American countries and AIAA is one of them.
We have already sent one shipment over 200 lbs.! We will be preparing a donation of gently used baseball & softball equipment in the near future. If you are looking to purge some of your child's equipment or uniforms to make room in your house please email Dave Calarco at:
This is a great opportunity to give back to the baseball community.
They have sent us a thank you letter for our first shipment. You may see that letter by clicking here.
If you want more information about this organization click here to be brought to their page.
Please make sure you read all these and follow for 2015.
