Little League International has put a moratorium on the use of composite bats
As applied by Little League International, the moratorium disallows the use of all baseball bats constructed with composite material in its barrel unless a specific model shows in laboratory testing that it will not exceed the standard that is printed on the bat, after the bat is broken in.
SCLL will allow only those bats that have been approved to be used during games.
If you want your child to use a composite bat you will need to have the document with you to show it has been approved for use by Little League International. Here is a list of bats that have been tested and approved. This is a work in progress so this list may change as bats are added.
Information on the composite baseball bats that have received waivers for the Little League (Majors) Baseball Division and below can be found here: http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/2013LicensedBatList.pdf
Information on the composite baseball bats that have received waivers for the Junior, Senior, and Big League Baseball Divisions of Little League can be found here: http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/approvedcompbats.htm
Licensed composite-barreled bats (2 1/4 inch barrels) that meet the Bat Peformance Factor (BPF) standard, and the Accelerated Break In (ABI) procedure, are listed below.
This list applies for the current season, and will be updated as needed.
This list is representative of licensed composite-barreled baseball bats that are permitted to be used in the Little League (Majors) Division and below, as of the latest revision date shown at the bottom of this page, when this list was last updated.
This list may have more licensed models added to it as more bats are tested, and if Little League receives the positive testing results from the manufacturer.
