Revised Bat Restrictions

EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 1, 2017:  Updated for the 2018 Season

Coaches and Parents: 
We apologize for the confusion on this bat issue.  Obviously, it has been confusing for all Leagues, Tournaments, Affiliations, teams, players and parents.

 

The Midwest Ohio Baseball League has always supported the decisions coming out of USA Baseball as the governing body of all baseball in the USA.  It was our understanding that player safety was one of the primary reasons for the new USA bat restrictions.
And, while it is true that the USA bats will be "more wood-like", and thus, less rebounding (and thus safer from a standpoint that a ball batted with same velocity will reach a pitcher more slowly with the new USA bat rather than the current 1.15 BPF, we have discovered that USA baseball has said that "safety is not the reason for the change."

 

From the USA baseball website:
Is safety the reason for the change?
No. Youth baseball continues to be one of the safest of all sports for youth participants.

 

AS WE NOW UNDERSTAND THAT SAFETY (WHICH WE THOUGHT TO BE THE PRIMARY REASON FOR THE CHANGE) IS NOT THE REASON FOR THE CHANGE, WE HAVE MODIFIED OUR BAT RESTRICTIONS FOR 2018 AND 2019.

 

For the 2018 Midwest Ohio Baseball Season:
For 15-18u only BBCOR certified for NFHS use, wood composite which is BBCOR certified or one piece wood bats will be legal for 2012 and beyond. 

 

For 14 and Under:  There will be no changes except to allow the USA Bats in addition to those with the 1.15BPF sticker or USSSA bats.

 

The Midwest Ohio Baseball League will allow both the new USA and the 1.15 BPF bats for 2018.

 

For the 2019 Midwest Ohio Baseball Season:
For 15-18u only BBCOR certified for NFHS use, wood composite which is BBCOR certified or one piece wood bats will be legal for 2012 and beyond. 

 

For 14 and Under:  Only USA baseball stamped bats will be allowed.
These are our league rules effective for the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
 
Considerations:
  1. Some tournaments will have their own rules so check with them before you enter. 
  2. IF you are considering purchasing a bat today, which you intend to use for multiple years, please consider purchasing a USA stamped bat.
  3. Bats are not to be tampered with by rolling or otherwise altering them.  There is a complete article on the website about rolling bats.
We wish that there was total agreement among all affiliations on this issue as that would simplify all of our lives.

 

We apologize for this revision, but we believe that since there is no safety issue, there is no reason to complicate our teams, players, parents and coaches lives while increasing (potentially) there costs to play by requiring a new bat this year.

Fraudulent Raffle

We have recently become aware that someone is fraudulently selling raffle tickets for a Harley using the name of Midwest Ohio Baseball.  This is NOT a league sponsored raffle.  We are working with law enforcement to apprehend the responsible party.  If you have bought any of these tickets, or have any information please contact Wade Westfall via email at: wade8276@yahoo.com.

 

Thank you.




Rolling Bats

Coaches, Parents and Players:

 
I am appalled that we even have to address this issue.
 
However, it has come to our attention that some teams/parents may be rolling bats.  Rolling bats is a process designed to artificially "break-in" bats in the hopes of improving he spring off of the bat.  IT may or may not include shaving the bat or attaching items inside the bat to help the trampoline effect.  
 
First, this process is illegal in the Midwest Ohio Baseball League.  Any parents, coaches or teams who are caught doing this will be dealt with very severely.  The League rules revert to NFHS rules where there is not specific rules on a topic such as bat rolling.  We will now clearly update the specific rules to address this issue which has not been a problem in past years.
 
Secondly, coaches, your insurance protection may very well be compromised in the event that a rolled bat is used in an incident which causes damage to a player.  You are taking on significant personal liability if you knowingly allow a player to use an altered bat.
 
Third, rolling bats will likely void your warranty with the manufacturers.
 
Below is an article that clearly lays out the high school rules which are also the Midwest Ohio Baseball rules on this issue.

IF you are using rolled bats, stop immediately.
