On Thursday, May 3, USA Baseball informed youth organizations, including Little League, that effective immediately, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8" (or the "Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8" at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30-inch drop 10 variation of the Easton Ghost X only. Pursuant to Rule 1.10, this is now an illegal bat. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play.
All parents, coaches, and umpires must check their bats and remove these bats from play if they are in possession of these bats.
Any questions regarding returns, refunds, or warranty claims for the Easton Ghost X 30/20 should be directed to Easton at
We put this out before, but we are still in need of help.
Calling all parents and adults. There is no Ed Walsh Little League without the support of the parents and adults of our players. Because of volunteers, Ed Walsh Little League Concession Stand generated over $5,000 in revenue last season and is looking to beat that total (based on current projections). Because of volunteers, Ed Walsh Little League didn't have to pay a landscaper almost $7,000 to maintain our fields and venue. Because of volunteers, each team had a Manager, Coach and sometimes even an Assistant Coach. Because of volunteers, we were able to change the lives of so many players and their families.
We're asking for everyone's help again this year. Please contact us if you're interested so we can have you complete a 2018 Little League Volunteer Form or click here to register electronically (league ID is: 2070507). Also, please check out our volunteer opportunities by clicking here.
Little League® International has assembled an online resource page dedicated to baseball bat information, that includes the latest bat information, current Little League Baseball rules and regulations governing bats, definition of terms, the moratorium on the use of composite bats, and a series of frequently asked questions, with answers and licensed bat lists.
Please note that as of January 1, 2018, the new USA Baseball Bat Standard will be implemented. Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018. For more information on the USABat standard and a complete list of bats approved through the USABat Standard, visit usabat.com.
