2018 USA Baseball Decertifies Easton Ghost 30 Inch -10
USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the United States has decertified the Easton Ghost
30" -10 (model # YBB18GX10 30/20). If you own one of these bats it is no longer within the rules to use this bat in
a JAA Little League baseball game.
Easton acknowledges full responsibility for this situation, and seeks to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
If you own one of these bats, you can return it to Easton. They will provide you with a mailing label that you can
use to return the bat to them at their cost. Upon return of the bat, Easton will send you a one-time use $500 electronic
voucher that you may use on easton.com by May 31, 2019. You may use this voucher to purchase another bat, or any other
Easton products available at easton.com, with free shipping.
To return the bat and receive the voucher from Easton, please call 1-844-531-7079, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be prepared to provide your full name, address, phone number, email address and the serial number from the
bat (the 7 digit silver racetrack oval decal just above the grip).
Late summer and fall are very popular times to take advantage of season ending clearance sales on baseball bats.
Please be aware this year that beginning January 1, 2018 the new USA Baseball bat standard for youth baseball
will take effect. No baseball or tee ball bats used in 2017 will be allowed to be used past December 31, 2017.
The 2018 Baseball Bat Standard DOES NOT affect Little League Softball and Yorktown JAA Softball.
USA Baseball is the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the United States and all member
organizations of USA Baseball will be adhering to this new standard. This includes Little League Baseball
of which the Yorktown JAA is a member.
