Big Barrel Bat Ruling

At the November 2014 meeting, the LYBA board voted not to use big barrel bats for the 2015 year.
During the 2014 World Series, the National Dixie Youth Board voted to legalize 2 5/8″ bats (big barrel) in all divisions of play of Dixie Youth baseball. There is a local league option that restricts the use of the 2 5/8″ bat. The North Carolina Dixie Youth State Board has adopted this option and the 2 5/8″ bat will NOT be allowed in district and state tournament play in AA, AAA, and Major tournaments.
