CURRENT JBO BAT RULES

In September, 2017, the JBO Board of Commissioners decided to not implement a new bat standard regulation. JBO will continue to follow the official rule, listed below.


Official Rule:

All baseball bats in JBO, Inc. will be either “BBCOR”,  “BPF 1.15”, or “USABaseball” certified. Umpires are required to perform a pre-game inspection of all equipment, especially bats, to ensure proper certification. Use of an illegal/altered bat shall be considered unsportsmanlike conduct and the player and Head Coach shall be ejected from the game. Both the ejected player & coach may be subject to further disciplinary action by the District and JBO, Inc.
To identify JBO sanctioned youth bats, look for one of the following stamps on the taper of the bat.
