Youth Baseball Bats

Youth Baseball Bats are built for younger baseball players usually between 4 and 12 years old and are approved for play under the USA Bat Standard. Youth baseball bats can be made from composite, aluminum, or a mixture of both. The best selling bats are minus 9 ounce length to weight ratio to minus 12 ounce length to weight ratio. Most USA Bat Standard approved youth baseball bat will have a 2 5/8" diameter barrel, and have the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp, along with stamps of certification for play in Little League, Pony Baseball, Babe Ruth, Dixie Youth, Cal Ripken, and Dizzy Dean.  If your league allows you take advantage of the larger 2 3/4" diameter bat barrels, please see our Youth Big Barrel Bats

Starting now, Little League and Pony Baseball will be using a new baseball bat standard called the "USA Baseball Bat Standard". The USA Bat Standard will allow for the use of big barrel baseball bats in Little League and Pony baseball. After January 1st. 2018, Little League and Pony will require bats to have the new, USA Bat stamp on the bat to be legal for play.

Youth baseball bats are toughest to select as one wrong decision can have a huge impact on your batting stance, hitting technique as well as swing speed. Simply put, you need to concentrate on the size of youth baseball bat more than anything else. Make sure that the bat you select is ideal for your height and body weight.

When you talk about the technical details, most youth bats have a drop weight between -9 and -12. The higher the number, the lighter your bat will be.

So, if a youth bat has a drop weight of -10, you can actually swing it more easily and comfortably compared to a -8 bat. When it comes to picking the right bat for your size, it is best to try several models. Once you hold the bat in your hands, check whether or not it is easy to swing and control. Remember, heavier bats are not the easiest, but they give you the ability to hit the ball with great power.
