Big changes for youth baseball, Academy Sports & Outdoors baseball bat trade-in

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

A new bat standard in now in place in all youth divisions this year. Many of the bats used in little league last year are no longer acceptable. All bats this year must be stamped with a new USA baseball mark.

"USA wants to preserve the long term integrity of the game," said Oil Belt Little League board member Richard Wendland. "A lot of new alloys and composite medals put a lot of pop on the ball and they basically want to keep it about the development and abilities of the kids instead of the ability of the bat"

So with all the new changes, Academy Sports & Outdoors has you covered. All you have to do is go to one of their stores and trade in your old bat for a new one and get a discount.

"If you have a bat that is not compliant with the new 2018 rule, you can trade your bat here and get a 20 percent discount," said store manager Danny Cavazos. "Make sure your bat has the USA sticker."

You can go to any Academy Sports & More locations and they will take care of you;
