Suburban League (Grades 7-9):
Wood or non-wood bats may be used by a player. An Illegal Bat is a bat that has been altered or a bat that is not approved for play because it does not meet specifications with regard to length, weight, barrel diameter, labeling or performance standard as set forth in this rule 2.02 for the Suburban League. An illegal bat must be removed. Any bat that has been altered shall be removed from play.  Penalty – See Rule – 6.06 (d)The bat may not exceed 34” in length, and the bat barrel may not exceed 2 5/8” in diameter.  All aluminum/alloy barrel bats and all composite handle (only) aluminum/alloy barrels are allowed.  Only composite barrel bats certified and marked BBCOR .50 will be allowed.   Note:  If a player chooses to play with a 2 1/4" barrel bat, our Major League rules will apply.
 
Wood barrel bats conforming to the following specifications are allowed. 
(a) The bat shall be a smooth, round stick not more than 2 5/8” in diameter at the thickest part and not more than 34 inches in length. The bat shall be one piece of solid wood.
(b) Cupped Bats. An indentation in the end of the bat up to one inch in depth is permitted and may be no wider than two inches and no less than one inch in diameter. The indentation must be free of right angles and may not contain any foreign substance.
(c) The bat handle, for not more than 18 inches from its end, may be covered or treated with any material or substance to improve the grip. Any such material or substance that extends past the 18-inch limitation shall cause the bat to be removed from the game.
NOTE: If pine tar extends past the 18-inch limitation, then the umpire, on his own initiative or if alerted by the opposing team, shall order the batter to use a different bat. The batter may use the bat later in the game only if the excess substance is removed. If no objections are raised prior to a bat’s use, then a violation of (c) above on that play does not nullify any action or play on the field and no protests of such play shall be allowed.
