Not sure if this thread belongs here or in the back room but I coach baseball for my son's school and in several other leagues around town (but so far not above 12U) and was just informed that this year our school 7th and 8th grade teams are required to use BBCOR bats.
I know they have recently pushed it down as far as high school but this seems a little much - not only are most of these kids (those who don't play travel ball) moving up to the big field for the first time but now they've got to move to BBCOR too (including buying new bats)?
Is this happening elsewhere?
