Licking Valley Youth Sports Association will follow the new USA Baseball bat standards that were revised in 2018 for all baseball divisions.  For more information about the new standard, please visit and make sure to check the link for a complete list of the decertified bats. 

As of 12/18/18,
the Easton Ghost X 30/20 YBB18GX10 and LL18GHX 30/20 2 5/8” has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30” (-10) length of the Ghost X YBB18GX10 and LL18GHX. All other certified lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X USABat remain approved for play.

The quick summary is that a legal bat will have the below logo stamped onto the bat between the handle and the barrel of the bat.  This does include the larger 2 5/8 inch big barrel bats.
