Batters, on deck batters, base runners, players used as base coaches or bat boys in all age categories shall wear double ear flap helmets which give protection to the temple, ears, base of skull and top of head.
Skull caps and wraparound head gear are not to be used by any player as so defined.

Baseball bats stamped with either USABB and/or BPF 1.15 are both the same measurement of the Bat Performance Factor (trampoline effect). Given the change in the Baseball Canada’s rule in 2017 there are still baseball bats being used with the BPF 1.15 that are not stamped USABB. This allows players at this time to still use a safer approved baseball bat even though not specified “USABB”.
