Bat Requirements

*Please read before purchasing a new bat

Updated Monday November 13, 2017 by Melony Winchester.

As you may have heard, there are new bat regulations being imposed across the country. Your Sandy Cal Ripken Board has voted to allow our players to continue to use the same bats they have used in the past for this upcoming 2018 seaon.  

But - if you are choosing to purchase a new bat for this upcoming season, it will be best to make sure your new bat has a USA stamp on it to ensure that your player will be able to use it for seasons to come.  

Here are some articles to the new regulations and will give you helpful guidance on the purchase of your player's next bat.
