NCAA’S BBCOR TEST DECERTIFIES 33-INCH REEBOK VECTOR-TLS BAT

(Updated 1/7/18)

Little League International has been advised that the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has provided official notice that the BBCOR decertification process has been implemented for the Reebok Vector-TLS 33-inch model bat.

Effectively immediately, this bat (Reebok Vector-TLS 33-inch length) should be considered non-compliant and subject to Junior and Senior Baseball Rules 1.10 and 6.06(d) and the USABat Standard. Note that under the new USABat Standard that took effect on January 1, 2018, BBCOR bats are no longer permitted for use in Junior League Baseball.

It should be noted that the National Federation of State High School Associations has taken similar action.
