Triple Crown is a non-sanctioning body that will allow both the BPF 1.15 USSSA Stamped Bat and the USA Stamped Bat at our baseball events (franchise rules may vary).
13u and Younger: All bats -5 or greater must be stamped BPF 1.15. Must be a baseball bat – no restriction on weight or length as long as bat has “BPF 1.15” stamp. All -3 bats must be stamped BBCOR. Wood bats allowed.
14u: -3 weight/length ratio only. All bats must be stamped BBCOR. Wood bats allowed. Please check the tournament rules section of this event as some markets have rule variations for bats in the 14u division.
15u and Older: -3 weight/length ratio only. All bats must be stamped BBCOR. Wood bats allowed.
19u: To be considered a wood bat, a bat must be made of a single piece of wood. All other bats such as bamboo or two piece must meet the BBCOR standards and have the BBCOR stamp.
Bat rules apply to the age division you are playing in (not the age of the player or team). Penalties for illegal bats will be assessed as per the NFHS rule book.
Effective January 1, 2021: After further review and in conjunction with our internal and franchise baseball operations, Triple Crown Sports will allow the use of the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen CBZ 2 ¾” (-10) bat at all TCS baseball events.
