NCAA Rule Changes for upcoming D2 baseball season

Composite Bat

The NCAA Baseball Rules Committee is proposing the elimination of composite bats from all of NCAA college baseball effective for the upcoming season.  There have been numerous reports of these bats having getting softer over time which creates a bigger trampoline effect which causes higher ball speeds coming off of the bats.  This has been especially noticeable over the past 2 years and the effect has given rise to many bats being intentionally “rolled” to create these higher bat speeds.

The following chart from Baseball America shows quite succinctly the effect on runs/game, home runs/game and ERA’s in the past 2 years of NCAA D1 baseball. 


The following stories cover the issue –

In addition to this change, the NCAA is proposing changes to the D2 baseball length of season (D2 Reduces from 56 to 50 games) and is testing with the RMAC Conference a process of rotating the Conference Championships (RMAC Tests Site Rotation).
