You might have received an e-mail from Little League, or you may have heard this information from your manager or other parents. USA Baseball has decertified the Easton Ghost X 30/20 2-5/8" bat. Text from Little League's e-mail is below:
"Dear Little League Parents and Volunteers,
Receiving a notice that a bat has been decertified, especially in the middle of the season, is challenging, inconvenient, and disappointing for everyone. On Thursday, May 3, USA Baseball informed Little League and other youth organizations about the decertification of the Easton Ghost X 30/20 5/8. We are committed to sharing that information with all of you as soon as we received it. According to the official notice from USA Baseball, "official compliance testing determined that the Ghost X 30/20 exceeds the performance limit set by the USABat Standard. Per the USA Baseball Youth Bat Performance Test Protocol as well as (USA Baseball's) contracts with Easton, these results constitute a non-compliant bat that must be decertified."
For any family or league that is impacted by USA Baseball's decertification of the Easton Ghost X 30/20 2-5/8, we strongly urge you to read Easton's release, which includes information about how to return your bat to receive a $500 voucher for Easton.com."
We encourage you to read the official release from Easton at this link: http://news.easton.com/…/easton-ghost-x-3020-2-58-decertifi…
Unfortunately, the Easton Ghost X 30/20 2-5/8-inch bat can no longer be utilized in Little League, or in other youth baseball leagues. Though Little League did not make this decision, we do have to enforce it. We understand this is an inconvenience, and sympathize with you. If you have any questions, please feel free to talk to your manager or a Board member.
