Banned Bats List

BESR, BBCOR, composites. . .

My goodness, can't we just play ball?

Well, Mr. Umpire, you had better do your homework before you step onto the field. Below are links to information on certified and banned bats that may show up on your field.

NFHS Certified and Banned Softball Bats

NFHS Softball Rule 1-3-5 indicates that in order for a bat to be legal it must: 1) meets the ASA Bat Performance Standard, and 2) be labeled with the permanent ASA approved certification mark. If both aspects of this rule are not met, the bat does NOT meet NFHS rule specifications. In addition, all bats shall meet the other specifications in Rule 1-3-5.
