Buying a New Bat: What You Need to Know

Other than a baseball glove, GVLL provides all equipment needed for players; helmets, bats, and catcher equipment. Many families choose to purchase their own batting helmet and bat. If you are going to purchase a bat, read below. These requirements apply to bats used at the Major Level. GVLL will phase these requirements at the Minor A and Minor B level for the 2019 season.

Beginning in 2018, the only bats that will be allowed in Little League play are bats with the USA Baseball logo shown here. 

Bats with any kind of message about being Little League approved, but not showing the USA Baseball logo will NOT be allowed. 

Do not purchase a new bat for your player that does not include the logo.
