USSSA Baseball Bat Performance Standards


This year, GYBA will comply with USSSA Baseball Bat Performance Standards by requiring all players to use bats that have either BBCOR or USSSA 1.15 bpf stamp.  

BBCOR is only for high school type bats (drop 3).

In summary, the  Baseball bat rules for 2013 are as follows:

Pinto & mustang – 2 ¼” max
Bronco – 2 5/8” max
Pony – 2 ¾” max

2 3/4" barrel bats are LEGAL only in PONY divisions.

2 5/8" barrel bats are LEGAL in BRONCO and PONY divisions, If a 2 5/8" bat is a -3, it must be BBCOR certified. 

2 1/4" bats are LEGAL in all divisions, if they are manufactured to a Bat Performance Factor of 1.15 or less. In addition the bat must be labeled "approved for play in PONY Baseball" and stamped "BPF 1.15" and the year manufactured. Recognizing that some bats may not have the year manufactured on the bat, it still must have BPF 1.15 stamped on the bat. 

Bat material is factored into the Bat Performance Factor (BPF) testing protocol as well as the BBCOR testing protocol. Subsequently as long as the aforementioned "marks" are on the bat that is the indication they have passed the appropriate testing protocol and are approved for play in GYBA Baseball.
