From the Little League International:
Dear Little League Parents and Volunteers,
On Thursday, May 3, USA Baseball informed youth organizations, including Little League, that effective immediately, the bat identified as the Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 2 5/8" (or the "Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8" at retail) has been decertified by USA Baseball and is no longer an approved bat under the USABat Standard. This applies to the 30-inch drop 10 variation of the Easton Ghost X only. Pursuant to Rule 1.10, this is now an illegal bat. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play.
All parents, coaches, and umpires must check their bats and remove these bats from play if they are in possession of these bats.
Any questions regarding returns, refunds, or warranty claims for the Easton Ghost X 30/20 should be directed to Easton at email@example.com.
Please visit USABat.com/Decertified-Bats for more information.
