    BCMBA Board vote and rule change effective May 7, 2019

    • To invoke Article XX, as set out in the 2019 BCMBA Association Rule Book, and set aside Rule 19.04, which states “10U & 11U (Mosquito) 32 inch, 2 5/8 inch max diameter, unlimited length/weight drop - bats with greater than 2 ¼ in. barrel diameter must be marked “USABB” and amend wording to “10U & 11U (Mosquito) 32 inch, 2 5/8 inch max diameter, unlimited length/weight drop - bats with greater than 2 ¼ in. barrel diameter must be marked “USABB” or stamped with “BPF 1.15 (Bat Performance Factor)”

     

    • Reasoning:

    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”.
