UPDATE 4/4/12 - Little League International issues approved bat list in PDF format


In an effort to provide more reader-friendly content, Little League International has "refreshed" the Little League-Approved 2 ¼ Bat List in PDF format.

 

While no changes have been made to the content of the list, the organization of the list itself has received a facelift, which will assist in locating and identifying the various bats.

 

The "refreshed" list includes all licensed models organized by manufacturer, including those composite barrel bats that have received a waiver from the composite-barreled bat moratorium.

 

The old version of the list organized the bat models based on their composition (i.e. Alloy, Composite, Composite Handle/Alloy Barrel), while this "refreshed" version of the list not only provides you with a description of the composition of each bat's barrel and handle, but it lists the licensed bat models based on their manufacturer (i.e. Anderson, COMBAT, Demarini, Easton, etc.).

 

Earlier this year, Little League International introduced a new mobile-friendly webpage for the bat list: http://www.LittleLeague.org/BatList. The page is designed to scale to the various screen sizes available on mobile devices.

 

The webpage provides a current listing of licensed baseball bats with a 2 1/4 inch maximum diameter that are currently approved for use in the baseball divisions of Little League (Majors Division and below).

 

The combination of the mobile-friendly webpage and the "refreshed" bat list in PDF are intended to provide users with a better overall experience while searching for Little League-approved bat information, whether at home, work, or on the go with a mobile device.
