Cal Ripken Updated Bat Standards - 2019

Please be aware that Westland Hills, under the Cal Ripken Youth Baseball Association, will be following the new bat regulations beginning January 1, 2018.

Any personal bat used at the Grasshopper, Farm, National or Adriance Division in the Boys Baseball Program must contain the "USA" approved stamp.

See this video for a short explanation.

Westland Hills will provide each team bag with the recommended bats for that level, with one bat at the 2 1/4 barrel size, and one bat at the 2 5/8 barrel size so there is no need for you to buy a personal youth bat unless you wish. 

Dick's Sporting Goods, a proud sponsor at Westland Hills, has the "USA" logo bats at a great price that you may pick one up now or  in the Spring.
