Beginning Jan 1st bat barrel sizes will change to 2 5/8". This will be for all 14 and under age groups. CalRipken is one of several baseball organizations adopting this change. For those in travel competitive leagues such as USSSA these bat standards will not apply.

Bats having the 2 5/8" barrel must have the USA stamp above the handle. If there are any questions regarding bat size go to and it aid on explaining the change in barrel size.
