Max barrel diameter changes to 2 5/8" for all players 14 & under

USA Baseball is essentially adopting the same test for youth bats that the NCAA uses for college bats:
.530 BBCOR for Youth is equivalent to .500 BBCOR for Adult (HS/College)
Cannon speed - Youth tests at 100mph / Adult tests at 136mph

Ball – Youth uses a youth ball (Wilson A1074LL1) / Adult uses an NCAA ball (Rawlings R1 NCAA)Max barrel diameter changes to 2 5/8” for ALL players 14 & Under

Max barrel diameter changes to 2 5/8” for ALL players 14 & Under

Estimated that the new standard will reduce ball exit speed by about 10-15% compared to the 1.15bpf bats
