Murphey Candler Baseball Bat Rules:
MCB will have new bat rules for 2023 (spring & fall) seasons. Small barrel bats (2 1/4") with the 1.15bpf stamp are allowed in Upper Leagues (AA, AAA, Major), but not allowed in Lower Leagues (Rookie, Southern, International, Coastal). Large barrel bats (up to 2 5/8") must have the USABat stamp.
One piece wood bats are allowed. Two piece wood bats must have a USABat stamp.
On January 1, 2018, a new bat standard (USABat) was introduced and utilized by a number of organizations, including Dizzy Dean. MCB will allow the use of the bats that fall under our current rules (updated October 2022) as well as the bats that conform to the new USABat standards.
Bats Not Allowed:
Bats that have a 2 5/8" or 2 3/4" barrel and a 1.15bpf stamp will not be allowed. Small barrel bats (2 1/4") with the 1.15bpf stamp are not allowed in Rookie, Southern, International, and Coastal.
If there are any questions, please reach out to your League Director or Coach. MCB will continue to monitor both the evolution of the new USABat bats and Dizzy Dean regulations, as well as future bat requirements as needed.
The bat rules for summer tournament teams may be different.
