Below is a complete list of youth baseball bats with the USABat stamp printed on them (last updated January 17, 2017).
All bats on this list are approved for play in leagues which require this new standard, which goes into effect January 1, 2018 for most recreation leagues in the U.S. In addition to bat name, model number, width, drop, and length range, the list also includes MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price).
The stated goal of the USAbat standard is for bats to perform at a wood-like level that will provide for the long-term integrity of the game. For details about the USAbat standard, read New USABat Standard Coming in 2018 elsewhere on this site.
Note that the USA Baseball organization has its own approved bat listing, with fewer columns of information.
The FilterJoe list will be maintained for at least a few months, and possibly much longer if people are willing to help. It will be easier to maintain if anyone who spots an inaccuracy or omission communicates that information to me in the comments below, or via this site’s contact submission form.
If you choose to communicate a correction, please include a link to the source of your information. If I can verify the correction/addition, I will attempt to have a revised version of the database up within 48 hours. Each version of the database will include the revision date as part of the title.
Whenever possible, the information below comes from manufacturer sites. However, not all models are listed on manufacture sites. For example, as of September 8, 2017, Easton’s USAbat list includes the S550 and s650 but not the S150, S250, s350, or s450. With no MSRP for these 4 bat models, I used the first price I found from an online merchant, which may be below MSRP. There may also be more sizes available for these models than what I observed.
I will add to the database any USAbat with a name and model number. This includes both currently available bats and bats for which there is some information about an upcoming release. Some bats will be temporarily out of stock at times, but I will not attempt to track whether a bat is currently in stock. A bat is marked as “available” if it has ever been in stock.
I am open to suggestions for improving formatting or information content. Feel free to leave comments below.
Here’s the list, best viewed using a desktop browser. Click the upper right corner to pop it out onto a separate tab, where you’ll be able to zoom in by hitting the “+” symbol at the bottom. If you see a blank screen below, hit the refresh button on your browser and it will appear.
Feel free to download the spreadsheet but please don’t post elsewhere on the web. I think it will be more useful for all if I keep one spreadsheet up-to-date rather than have many versions on many sites, most of which are older versions that are no longer accurate.
Again, I welcome help. Please leave comments below with any inaccuracy you find, including a link to a reputable source of information.
