2019 Bat Standards
In conjunction with USA Baseball and its other participating national member organizations, PONY Baseball has adopted the new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat). Effective January 1, 2018, with the exception of -3 (BBCOR certified), all other minus factor bats (-5, -7, -9, etc.), must be YBBCOR certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league play. Minus factor bats -5, -7, -9, etc. used in 2017 will be illegal to use in 2018/2019.
All divisions (aside from coach pitch and tball) must follow the USA Bat Standards in 2019.
SIYB will still be using the 2017 bat standards for all three of its tournaments: Cinco de Mayo, Memorial Day Super Bash, and Best in the Northwest.
