Babe Ruth Bat Rules

Updated Thursday April 14, 2016 by Terry Eby.

We often get questions about the rules on bats and sizes.  The following is from the Babe Ruth HQ website and applies to the Prep, Alliance and American divisions:


The bat may not exceed 34" in length, and the bat barrel may not exceed 2 5/8" in diameter.  All aluminum/alloy barrel bats and all composite handle (only) aluminum/alloy barrels are allowed.  Only composite barrel bats certified and marked BBCOR .50 will be allowed.  Wood barrel bats conforming to the specifications of Official Baseball Rule 1.10 are allowed.
