Bats

 

 

Our league allows only USA approved single-walled aluminum (barrel) and USA approved wooden bats.

If a bat is not on the our list (below) and is not stamped with the A.S.A certification mark, it cannot - under any circumstances - be used in league play.

(Printable ASA Wood Bats List)

ANY Demarini White Steel or Demarini Raw Steel bat can be used in league play as long as it has an ASA approved stamp on it.  We weren't sure about this before, until we got the word from the ASA, the manufacturer and others. Please don't hesitate to contact Pete or myself if you have any questions.


Print and carry this list with you.  Suggestion: Highlight your own team's bats in yellow, in case they are called into question.  The time to question bats is during the game, not after the game.  Please read the following.

Legal Bats

  1. If a bat is not on this list (above) and is not stamped with the A.S.A certification mark, it cannot - under any circumstances - be used in league play.
  2. ASA Rule 7 Section 6B: When a batter enters the batter’s box with or is discovered using an altered or non-approved bat.  EFFECT: The batter is called out and ejected from the game (our league rules provide an automatic one game suspension for players who have been ejected. Suspension will begin immediately).
    Note: Section 6 B-C: If a previous batter has used the same altered or illegal bat and a pitch has been made, the current batter only.
    Penalties are assessed only if a batter uses a non-approved bat in a game situation. We strongly suggest that you keep all non-approved bats away from the backstop, benches and fence.
  3. If (in the umpire's judgment) a bat is damaged (flattened or cracked, etc.), the umpire can remove it from the game (no penalty assessed).
  4. Bats may be inspected by team captains and the umpire at any time before and during the game.  Captains should carry the league bat list with them at all times.  
  5. Illegally altered bats for the purpose of increasing performance may result in a lifetime ban.
