Baseball Bat Rules for 2018
by posted 11/21/2017

Baseball Bat Rules for 2018

Please note that USA Baseball has developed a new baseball bat standard in 2018.  This new standard will be adopted by most leagues nationally for ages 15U and younger, including:  Little League, Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth, Pony League, AAU, and EBL (among others).  This will affect the bat rules for ALL leagues and divisions that CCYB/S participates in, including: Spring in-town baseball; Rebels baseball; Spring and Summer Minuteman (Babe Ruth) baseball; the Jimmy Fund League; Bay State Baseball; Lou Tompkins Baseball, and the Fall Baseball League (Little League and Babe Ruth).

Starting on January 1, all baseball bats used by CCYB/S players 12U and younger must have the 2018 USA Baseball Stamp on them.  For Babe Ruth players 13U – 15U, bats must have the USA stamp *or* bats must be BBCOR (Batted Ball Coeffecient of Restitution) 0.50 bats. For Babe Ruth players 16U – 18U, only BBCOR 0.50 bats are allowed.

We will be providing a limited number of USA 2018 stamped and BBCOR bats for all CCYB/S teams in 2018 (except for Rebels teams).  Players wishing to purchase and use their own bats for 2018 should make sure their bats follow the USA Baseball or BBCOR standards.

Summary & Other Information:

  • For 12U and younger, all bats in 2018 must have the USA Baseball Stamp.
  • For 13U – 15U, bats must have the USA Baseball Stamp or are BBCOR 0.50 bats.
  • For 16U – 18U, bats must be BBCOR 0.50 bats.
  • Bats approved for Little League in 2017 or earlier are no longer legal bats.
  • Bats with 2 5/8” barrels are now legal, as long as they are USA Baseball approved or are BBCOR 0.50 bats.
  • “USSSA” stamped bats are *not* legal.

Honor an athlete, a team, or a coach!
by posted 04/25/2017

The three major phases of CC at Play’s fields renovation project at CCHS are complete and CCYB/S is better off for it!  The renovation of the softball and baseball fields, and the addition of hitting tunnels and bullpens, will benefit our players for years to come.  The addition of ADA accessible pathways to all the fields will benefit fans of all ages.  We are proud to say that CCYB/S (in partnership with the other youth sports organizations) made a contribution to help fund the project.


This summer, CC at Play will put finishing touches onto the project.  They plan to build a maintenance building, add wayfinding signage, and install landscaping at the entrances.  To fund this final phase of work, they are selling engraved bricks that will pave the area around the new flagpole in the stadium.  These bricks are a great way to honor a graduate, celebrate a team, thank a coach or teacher, or celebrate an alum.  Bricks can be purchased at www.CCatPlay.org.  Create a memory to mark your place at CC!
