Decertified Bat List (Baseball)

Bat Tampering is Cheating


The USABat decertification process has been implemented on the following bat(s):

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. At the time of this decertification notice, all other lengths and drops of the Easton Ghost X bat remain approved for play.


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 our contracts with Easton, these results constitute a non-compliant bat that must be decertified.

Team representatives are asked to check their teams’ bats and withhold these bats from play if their teams are in possession of these bats. League administrators are asked to share this information with their umpires. If a player attempts to use an Easton Ghost X YBB18GX10 30/20 during competition, it should be considered an illegal bat and subject to league rules regarding the use of illegal or unapproved bats.

More information on this decertification can be found on USA Baseball’s website at
