Baseball Rules

Bat Rules

Brookline Baseball requires the use of specific, approved bats for the safety of all players.

New Baseball Bat Rules for 2018

MAKE SURE THE BAT YOU PURCHASE HAS THE USA BASEBALL LOGO, ONE OF THE VARIATIONS SHOWN ABOVE

What you need to know:  

This applies to Baseball only, not Softball.

All bats, both composite and aluminum, purchased prior to September 1, 2017 cannot be used next season. The only bats grandfathered into the new USA Baseball rules are the tee ball bats.

Bats for purchase are now available at most outlets including Dick's Sporting Goods and C&M.
