The current bat policy will remain in effect until further notice.
13u - 14u
NVTBL will allow both USA and USSSA approved bats for the 2022. 13U Players must swing a bat that is no lighter than a -8. 14U Players must swing a bat that is no lighter than a -5. NVTBL does recommend that 14u (8th grade) players begin the transition to BBCOR bats no later than the spring/summer of their 8th grade season.
8u - 12u
NVTBL will allow both USA and USSSA bats. We do recognize that there are teams at certain age levels who will elect to only use USA bats. Coaches may agree ahead of games to only use USA bats for their game(s). That is totally acceptable if both coaches agree prior to the game starting. The bat rules are posted on the home page of www.NVTBLBaseball.org
The Easton Ghost X 30/20 YBB18GX10 and LL18GHX 30/20 2 5/8” has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30” (-10) length of the Ghost X YBB18GX10 and LL18GHX. All other certified lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X USABat remain approved for play.
