Dear Cal Ripken Baseball and Babe Ruth Baseball Membership:
USA Baseball informed youth organizations, including Babe Ruth League, Inc., that effective immediately and until further notice, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8" (or the "Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8" at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard.
USABat: Easton Ghost X 30/20 Model Number(s): YBB18GX10 30/20 (D: 2 5/8), LL18GHX 30/20 (D: 2 5/8) Length: 30" (-10) All other certified lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X USABat remain approved for play
If any of these bats are used during competition, it should be considered an illegal and non-compliant bat, and subject to league rules concerning the use of illegal or unapproved bats. Coaches and team administrators are encouraged to check their team's bats and withhold these bats from play. League administrators should share this information with their umpires.
On June 9, we will have an all league gathering to celebrate baseball, MLB, and HOYB oat Haley Smith field from 10am to 6pm. Festivities will include a parade of athletes, dedication of new flagpole round robin games for all leagues, food, fun and a modified Opening Day type ceremony.
Please block the date and come out and celebrate HOYB!
