MBL and MBT, which run the leagues that all Burnsville Traveling Baseball teams play in, have announced bat rules for the 2016 season, and no changes have been made from last year.
Bats with a barrel size of 2 1/4" can have an unlimited weight differential, and bats with a barrel size between 2 1/2" and the max of 2 3/4" must have a -10 differential or less (i.e. 30” length and 20.0 oz. weight).
In the 10- to 14-year-old age group, big-barrel bats must have the NEW USSSA-Approved 1.15 BPF stamp, Babe Ruth-Approved 1.15 BPF stamp or BBCOR stamp on the taper.
For small-barrel bats (2 1/4"), 10- to 13-year-olds can use all of the above stamps and can also use bats that have the old USSSA-Approved 1.15 mark, or it can have any 1.15 stamp on the bat.
15-year-olds must use a BBCOR bat (Batted Ball Coefficient or Restitution).
