FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR FALL 2018 & BEYOND.....
Is the GHVBL allowing Big Barrel Bats in 8U - 14U?  YES - If the bat has a USABat label, it is legal, and there are several USABat stamped bats that are Big Barrel. 
Is there a specific drop requirement in the 8U - 14U divisions? NO - Again, if the Bat is USABat approved, then it may be used in 8U - 14U, no questions asked. 
Is the BBCOR standard going away? NO - the USABat standard ONLY APPLIES to 8U - 14U.  So where you are supposed to use BBCOR in 13U & 14U today - you may now use USABat which includes larger drops than -3.  BBCOR is in place and allowed in 11U+ but required for 15U and above.  FYI - ALL BBCOR bats are -3 
Is Wood legal in all divisions? YES - Wood bats are welcome in all divisions!
