BPF 1.15 Bat Standard

7U-12U: Metal bat. All bats must have a branding, label, or stamp proving BPF 1.15. USABat, BBCOR and Wood bats are allowed.

Bat Rules apply to the age division you are playing in, not the age of the player or team.

Penalties for illegal bats will be assessed as per the NFHS rule book. 1st violation - Batter is pronounced out (if discovered before a pitch to next batter) & head coach is restricted to the dugout for the remainder of the game. 2nd violation (Same Game) - Batter is pronounced out (if discovered before a pitch to next batter) and head coach is ejected. Subsequent violations: batter is pronounced out (if discovered before a pitch to next batter) and head coach is ejected. When a batter is pronounced out for violation of bat rules, the defense may take the penalty or result of the play. The head coach penalties apply in either case.

Effective April 7, 2017, the following bats may not be used in Perfect Game events:
  • 2017 CF Zen Balanced (-8)
  • 2017 CF Zen SL 2 3/4" (-10)
  • 2017 CF Zen Zero Dark 2 3/4" (-10)
  • Custom 2017 CF Zen 2 3/4" (-10)
  • Custom 2017 CF Zen Balanced (-8)

Re-tooled models of these bats may be used in Perfect Game play. Once returned from the manufacturer, these new bats will have updated model numbers and new orange end cap and stickers indicating the corrected performance standards.

DeMarini has concluded its youth baseball bat BPF audit and determined that these bats do not consistently pass the BPF 1.15 standard.

In addition, the following bats are banned from play until further notice:

  • (Dirty South) Kamo BB KA 8 (30/22, 31/21, 32/22, 31/23, 32/24 only)
