New 2018 Youth Baseball Bat Standard

Bat standards are an ever-evolving way to measure bat performance and control the maximum power that these sticks are capable of producing.

The most well-known of these standards is the NCAA and NFHS BBCOR Standard that regulates high school and college bats.

The goal of this standard (and, to a lesser extent, the new Youth Baseball Bat Standard) is to help make the game safer by ensuring that batted balls do not leave the bat at deadly speeds with the potential to gravely harm the opposing pitcher or infielders.
