Please be advised 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.

 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.

Easton is required to release a statement regarding this decertification and post information on their website for customers who have purchased the bat. We will share the URL for decertification information on as soon as it is available.
