2019 Bat Rules (PLEASE READ BEFORE TRYOUTS)

CAA Tournament & Metro Families:

It has come to my attention that there may be some confusion as to the bat requirements for this weekend's tryouts.  The purpose of this email is to eliminate any ambiguity re: which bats are allowed for tryouts as well as the 2019 season.

While all bats for use in Tournament and Metro baseball must carry the USA Stamp (see below) unless wood or BBCOR, there are nuances in the specifications depending on age.  

Each player must use an AGE APPROVED bat for the tryout in which he is competing (i.e. a player trying out for 14 Metro must use a bat that complies with the 14-U specifications).  Please see the below table for specifics:

9-U, 10-U, 11-U,
12-U, 13-U

Bats must be 2 1/4" with unlimited weight differential or bats 2 5/8" and have a -11 differential or less meaning -10, -9 etc. NOT -12, -13, etc. (i.e. 31” – 20.0 oz.).  Wood bats are also acceptable.

14-U
14/15A

Bats must be 2 5/8" with a -5 or less differential or a -3 BBCOR bat.  Wood bats are also acceptable.

15-U

Bats must be 2 5/8” with a -3 or less differential and must be a BBCOR bat.  Wood bats are also acceptable.

 

Example of USA Stamp: See attached graphic  

This information can also be found on the CAA Baseball Website under Baseball Info>2018 Bat Rules.

I apologize for not making the “age specific” requirement more clear during the parent meeting, and I recognize that there are only three days left before tryouts.  If you do not own and are unable to purchase an age specific compliant bat prior to tryouts, you will need to borrow one.  Unfortunately, no exceptions can be made as the performance of the bat changes by age group.

Thank you for your understanding and for your continued participation in CAA Baseball!!

Good luck this weekend and have a great 2019 season.
