Bye Bye Mako!! Warning to Parents About Buying New Bats!

Warning for New Bats!

Hi NMVLL Families,

We want to put out an informational message about upcoming changes to approved bats for the 2018 season. Little League International has changed the standard and most if not all bats used today will be illegal for next year's season (they can still be used this season). If your child's bat has the 1.15 stamp on it, it will not be able to be used next year. The new standard will be 1.00 as LL wants to make the bats closer to the performance of wood.

We mention this because we wanted everyone to know before they went out and bought their child that new $350 Mako. They will only be able to use it for one season. Our recommendation is to wait until next year before purchasing new bats.
