Little League Bat Policy
Intermediate (50/70) Division (primarily 12s and 11s, some 13s) and Juniors (primarily 14s and 13s)

RLL adheres to Little League's established policy for its 50/70 baseball and Juniors divisions.  Basically, large barrel bats are legal, provided they comply with all Little League rules (only aluminum or wood bats, or composite barrel bats that are BBCOR certified).  Small barrel bats are also legal provided they meet all Little League standards and do NOT contain composite materials in the barrel (bat head).

As stated by Little League rule 1.10:   It shall not be more than 34 inches in length; nor more than 2 5/8 inches in diameter, and if wood, not less than fifteen-sixteenths (15/16) inches in diameter (7/8 inch for bats less than 30”) at its smallest part. All composite barrel bats shall meet the Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) (-3) performance standard, and such bats shall be so labeled with a silkscreen or other permanent certification mark. The certification mark shall be rectangular, a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color.

Here's a link to Little League's 50/70 Rules and Bat Q&A:

Another important note from Little League:
Q-11: Can a bat with a 2 1/4 inch barrel be used in Junior League Baseball and Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Division?
A: Yes, but not all 2 1/4 inch bats can be used. If a bat’s barrel has no composite materials in it, it may be used in the Junior League Baseball and the Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Divisions, provided it is labeled with a BPF (bat performance factor) of 1.15 or less, and meets the standards for length, handle diameter, etc. But if the bat has composite materials in the barrel, a 2 1/4-inch barrel MAY NOT be used; only a 2 5/8-inch BBCOR bat may be used.

A COMPOSITE-barreled bat with a 2 1/4-inch barrel cannot be used in the Junior League Baseball or Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Divisions, since there are no 2 1/4-inch bats that meet BBCOR standards. If the bat to be used in the Junior League Baseball or Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Divisions has a barrel that is made of wood, or metal (alloy, aluminum, etc.), then it only needs to meet the standards for Junior League Baseball bats in Rule 1.10, and it can have a barrel that is less than 2 5/8-inch in diameter.
Basically, any bat with a composite barrel (bat head) is illegal (unless BBCOR (-3)). A bat may contain composite material in the handle so long as it's not in the barrel bat head.  When assessing whether your 2 ¼ bat is legal for 50/70 play, use this list to make sure the bat does NOT have a COMPOSITE Barrel bat head.

New Bat Standards Coming in 2018

Little League to Adopt New USA Baseball Bat Standard Starting with 2018 Season

Developed by a USA Baseball committee of scientific experts, Little League Baseball has decided to adopt the new bat standard for mandated use effective January 1, 2018. All national members of USA Baseball, including Little League, are encouraged to adopt this new standard. Little League-approved bats can be used through December 31, 2017, and our current bat regulations will be in effect until then.
