Tinicum, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2019 -- The United States Specialty Sports Association is implementing changes, including new regulations on all softball and baseball bats, that will be effective by 2021. Bats Plus wants to make their clientele aware of these changes and will be offering any new bats under the current regulations for sale from their inventory.
As of September 1st, the USSSA moved its testing lab to a new location and partnered with NTS Chesapeake for bat validations. As an effect of this latest move and partnership, a new stamp of approval will be seen on all bats. Bats with older stamps will still be grandfathered in, but the new stamp will be a sign of things to come for newer regulations.
In June 2020, these new standards will start to be felt when bats that hit the market comply with the new regulations. The new regulations for 13u teams will be a maximum of drop 8 bats, and a maximum of drop 5 bats will be the new standard at 14u events. In July 2021, this new standard will officially be put into effect, with violators subject to automatic outs or even ejections. In short, players will need to use heavier bats, which might limit power hitters and lead to more outfield and infield plays.
These changes are going to affect how the game is played, so Bats Plus is raising awareness so players can keep their game at a high level and adjust to the new standards. With a diverse catalog of DeMarini fastpitch bats for sale, Louisville Slugger bats, Worth softball bats for sale, and more, Bats Plus wants anyone who buys from them to have the best equipment that meets all the industry's standards.
