PONY Bat Rules

BASEBALL BAT RULES 
  • NO bats larger than two and five-eighth inch (2-5/8″) diameter are allowed at any level of play.
  • Two and five-eighth inch (2-5/8″) diameter bats that weigh minus 3 (-3) and have the "BBCOR Certified" stamp on them are legal, as long as they are designed for baseball use.
  • All bats, except for the -3 (BBCOR certified), must be USABat certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and tournament play.
  • T-ball bats are only allowed when hitting off a tee or our Shetland Blue Flame Pitching Machines, and while using a safety ball. 
  • T-ball bats must also include the following text: "Only For Use With Approved Tee Balls"
  • Coach-pitch bats are not allowed in Menifee Pony Baseball.
  • Colt and Palomino will only be allowed to use 2-5/8" -3 BBCOR certified bats.

 

Are wood bats still allowed?

Yes. Solid, one piece wood bats are approved for use under USABat with or without the USA Baseball Certification Mark.  Multi-piece and composite wood bats must feature the USA Baseball Certification Mark to be approved for play.  Bats made of multiple pieces of wood, sawdust, or including man-made materials, are considered composite wood bats.
