Yes, in the past it was rubber only but as of 2011 metal spikes are allowed for 13U.
For Little League Baseball Divisions: The moratorium on composite-barreled baseball bats remains in effect. However, some composite-barreled baseball bats that have been proven in laboratory testing to meet the BPF (Bat Performance Factor) standard throughout the life of the bat, through the Accelerated Break-In (ABI) process, have received waivers.
See the Official Little League baseball website for additional information:
List of some composite bats that meet BFF standards is here: Licensed/Approved Composite 2 1/4 Bats.
