USABat Standards

Recently, USA Baseball has provided Little League and other youth organizations with some additional guidance on how organizing bodies, like Little League International, can make it easier for local leagues, volunteers, and players to use bats within our programs. We encourage you to review their FAQs at USABat.com, as well as the information on LittleLeague.org/BatInfo.
 
Effective immediately (Thursday, February 15, 2018), Little League has amended Rule 1.10 for Little League Baseball for the Coach Pitch/Machine Pitch Divisions and the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division and Junior League, to reflect this guidance from USA Baseball. Read the fully updated Rule 1.10 on LittleLeague.org.
 
Coach Pitch/Machine Pitch
 
Players may use approved Tee Ball bats, including those that were produced and/or purchased prior to the implementation of the new standard that have been certified using an Approved Tee Ball Sticker via the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program (USABaseballShop.com) ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS.
 
Little League International encourages leagues using approved Tee Ball bats at the Coach Pitch/Machine Pitch level to only use approved tee balls in these instructional divisions to help avoid confusion as to what type of baseball should be used at any given time.
 
Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division and Junior League
 
In addition to using bats approved for Little League play based on the USABat Standard, players in these two divisions can also choose to use bats that have been approved and appropriately certified using the BBCOR standard. All bats not made of a single piece of wood shall meet the Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) performance standard, and such bats shall be so labeled with a silkscreen or other permanent certification mark.
 
The certification mark shall be rectangular, a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color. Aluminum/alloy and composite bats shall be marked as to their material makeup being aluminum/alloy or composite. This marking shall be silkscreen or other permanent certification mark, a minimum of one-half-inch on each side, and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color.

Please consider volunteering to coach
It is never too late to start coaching; as the kids advance they need to be exposed to the leadership and confidence building aspects of coaching along with specific skills and positive role models.
 
New this year, we are planning a couple of coaching clinics.  If you are new to coaching, or an experienced coach, come listen to Jason Wasserman, Brighton High Schools Varsity Coach about what we should expect of our young players, and how to coach the skills our players need.
 
Brighton Baseball is always open to new members and the contributions of new perspectives. You may volunteer to help coach when you fill our your child's registration below. You'll also need to fill out a volunteer application to coach. Click here, print and fill it out and email it to Brian Blaustein, or mail it to

Field of Memories
“Field Of Memories”

Remembering those who were so important to Brighton Little League
 
Brighton Little League is an organization that creates great opportunities for the kids in our community.  Brighton Little League has always been led by great volunteers, sponsors, and benefactors.

The Field Of Memories site allows parents, coaches and former players to remember those who have passed, and were so important to youth baseball and softball in Brighton.
 
The leaders of Brighton Baseball encourage everyone to take a moment and read about some of the individuals who led by example and were so supportive of the kids in our community.
