Welcome to Bel Air Youth Baseball!

Welcome to the Youth Baseball Page of the Bel Air Recreation Council! 

Organizationally, we strive to provide a safe, fun, and fundamental baseball experience for the Bel Air area community in Harford County MD.  We offer both Recreational League play and a Travel Program for all youth age groups from T Ball all the way to the 90' Diamond. We're operated by volunteers, and are actively seeking front office volunteers/board members to help achieve our goals, as well as coaches and age group commissioners.

2018 Bat Standard Update


Happy Holidays from the Bel Air Baseball family to yours!


A quick update in relation to the new USABat Standard for 2018’s baseball season.


Recreational Baseball - In Age Groups 7/8, 9/10, and 11/12, the USABat standard will not be enforced in the upcoming 2018 Season, but the new bats will be permitted if you purchased one already.


By definition of stamps you see on the bats - BPF 1.15 Bats with 2 1/4 Barrels and the USABats with 2 1/4 and 2 5/8 Barrels will all be allowed in rec baseball.


13-15 will have no change to last year, and BBCOR is still the standard


Travel Baseball - Our travel teams play in several different leagues, so your safest bet is to contact your age’s coach here -  Travel Contact Page if you have questions.


  • 8U-12U - Essentially you can’t go wrong with a USABat in Travel, however the design of these bats have slightly less “pop” than the BPF standard, and as such, if the respective league/tournament allows for BPF, you may swing the “old bats”. As a note HCTB is enforcing the USABat standard.


  • 13U-17U the standards are BPF and BBCOR, and as above, you should consult with your age group coach or travel coordinator.
