Note: TB/CP levels – Current bats labeled for use with TeeBalls can still be used however there must be a USA Baseball sticker placed on the bat. See the link above for details on how to acquire one of the stickers. If the bat does not say for use with TeeBalls, then the bat is illegal regardless of having a sticker or not.. It must be replaced with a new conforming bat. Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
