The Easton XL3 (SL13X39) features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and would therefore not be legal in Little League. The Little League requires your bat to have a diameter of 2 1/4" and the applicable bats are listed in the 'youth' section of our website.
My son is about 52" tall and weighs about 60 pounds. I was wondering what size bat should he be using? He plays in a 10U Ripken League.
For someone the size of your son we would recommend a 28" bat, although you can go up or down 1" depending on things such as how far he likes to stand off the plate, whether he chokes up on the bat, etc. Weight is harder to recommend, as we do not know the strength of the player, although -10 and -12 are generally the most popular drops in youth bats.
