EASTON VOLUNTARILY REMOVES BATS

The Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA)/USA Softball, in working with Easton Baseball/Softball Inc. (Easton), recently announced that Easton is voluntarily removing the following softball bat models from the ASA/USA list of certified bats: SCN1, SCN11BH, SCN1B, SCN2B, SCN3, SCN4B, SCN5, SCN5B, SCN6B, SCN7, SCN7B, SCN8, SCN8B, SCN9, SCX14, SCX14B, SCX24B, and SCX3.

The NFHS Softball Rules Book specifically states that the bat must contain the 2000 or 2004 ASA certification mark and NOT be on the ASA non-approved bat list.  Therefore, these bats are no longer permitted in NFHS contests.  NFHS Rule 1-5-1d is listed below for your convenience.

Rule 1-5-1d
The ball shall:
d.     Meet the 2004 ASA Bat Performance Standard, bear either the 2000 or 2004 certification mark and not be listed on the ASA non-approved bat list as found on http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Softball.aspx. Bat barrels made entirely of wood are permitted and need not bear an ASA mark, but shall not exceed 2ΒΌ inches in diameter.

Thank you for your efforts in this matter.
