Other Tournament Rules

Please Note:  Other Tournaments that your team may choose to play in may have its own set of bat rules; it would be wise to consult each organization’s rules as they all differ in some way.  You may visit each organization’s web sites that are listed on the internet or simply use the links area on the MABF web site where they are listed under the folder: Baseball - Amateur Organizations (U.S.).  For your convenience a direct link to most National Organizations rules can be found in the folder MABF Rules.
