KCBL 2018 Bat Regulations

KCBL is a league not Sanctioned by Pony, Little League, Babe Ruth, etc. We do however follow the NFHS Rules in combination with USSSA Standards for areas where rules can be applied to players 8u to 14u.

You do not need to run out and buy the new USA stamped bats for KCBL League play. You can continue to use your USSSA stamped bat. If you have a USA stamped bat, it will be allowed in KCBL Play. You will have to check with the tournaments you are in for bat rules.

USSSA Rule

Kane County Bronco League

Kane County Bronco League, also know as KCBL, has been in existence for almost 20 years. KCBL was started to give the Travel Teams in the area a place to play competitive games outside of in-house programs. In the past 10 years, we have grown to 175 teams from age divisions 8u-14u. Kane County is the center, but some of our teams travel from the border counties.
