In conjunction with USA Baseball and its other participating national member organizations, PONY Baseball has adopted the new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat). All 2 1/4″ and 2 5/8″ barrel bats with a minus factor of (-5, -7, -9, etc.), must be USABat certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and tournament play. All 2 1/4″ and 2 5/8″ minus factor bats -5, -7, -9, etc. purchased before September 1, 2017, are illegal to use in Pony Baseball.
BBCOR certified (-3) bats may be used at any level in Pony Baseball, regardless of the USABat certification.
Tee ball bats are not required to undergo lab testing to receive approval under the USABat program. However, to be approved for play, tee ball bats must carry the USA Baseball mark accompanied by the following text: “Only For Use With Approved Tee Ball Bats.” If you already have a tee ball bat you would like to continue using, all you have to do is purchase a USA Bat sticker directly from USA Baseball and place it on your bat.
