*** BATS:  On January 1, 2018, USA Baseball implemented the USABat Standard for non-wood youth baseball bats. Under USABat, approved bats that feature the USA Baseball mark are performance tested and required to perform at a wood-like standard

Team representatives are asked to check your team’s bats and withhold any non USA bats from play if your team is in possession of any. League administrators are asked to share this information with your umpires. If any of these bats are attempted to be used during competition, it should be considered an illegal bat and subject to league rules regarding the use of illegal or unapproved bats.

Younger players will need helmets with a face mask over the front.

Players in Majors or higher divisions can use helmets with a C flap on the front.  These C flaps must be affixed to the helmet by the manufacturer, and not purchased separately from the helmet.
