Is rolling a softball bat illegal?
Is It Illegal? Bat rolling is not illegal. As a matter of fact, all composite bats must be rolled in testing before they are deemed legal for play. Bat rolling is most prevalent amongst the slowpitch softball community, but in some occasions, fastpitch softball players also take to bat rolling.
Does heat rolling a bat really work?
Heat Rolling We have done extensive testing rolling bats after heating them and found that it actually is counterproductive to breaking in the bat. The heat temporarily stretches out the bat’s fibers so that when you roll it you are not accomplishing any break in.
Are shaved and rolled bats legal?
Bats that are broken, altered or that deface the ball are illegal. Materials inside the bat or treatments/devices used to alter the bat specifications and/or enhance performance (e.g., shaving, rolling or artificially warming the bat barrel) are prohibited and render the bat illegal.
Is the Easton ghost softball bat illegal?
This Easton Ghost bat is NOT legal in USSSA but is legal in High School. It does not have the USSSA thumbprint but does have the ASA Certification.
What is better 2 piece or 1 piece bats?
For this reason, one–piece bats are preferred by stronger players with above average bat speed such as a power hitter. Two-piece bats provide more flex at contact with the ball. Two-piece bats are the most used type of bat, and will provide the BEST performance.
How do you tell if a bat is rolled or shaved?
The most obvious way to tell if a bat has been shaved is to open the top end cap and look inside. This is because a bat will be shaved along the inside wall of the barrel and the only way to tell if this has happened is to look on the inside of the bat.
What does rolling a softball bat do?
Mostly used in Slow Pitch softball, bat rolling is a process used to enhance pop and distance to a bat. Essentially, by rolling a bat a player is expediting the break-in time and the time it takes a bat to become “hot” (usually more than 500 hits from the bat).
Do composite bats lose their pop?
Keep in mind that composite bats do require a break-in period. Unfortunately, most bats do lose their pop in time with enough use. All bats have a limited life.
Why are white bats being banned?
As of Jan 1st, 2020 the NCAA is no longer allowing white bats in College Baseball. This is a safety concern that will allow pitchers to pick up the ball earlier off the bat —assuming its coming right back at him. This white bat ban is NOT FOR HIGH SCHOOL (NFHS) or any other Sanctions, ONLY NCAA.
Will a rolled bat pass a compression test?
Bats rolled to this top spec will not pass any compression testing. A compression tester is a device with a gauge on it. The bat is placed in the tester to determine the current break in state.
Why are some bats illegal?
While the performance of such a bat may go way up for a while, the durability is greatly compromised. If the original bat had the ASA certification stamp (indicating batted-ball speed below 98-mph), the modified bat now well exceeds the ASA performance limit and is now illegal.
Can you shave an AXE bat?
Bat shaving is the illegal process by which a composite bat has the inside of its barrel cored out to become more flexible and have better performance. The practice is uncommon and considered dangerous. Our data indicates that those who shave their bats think it more prevalent than it actually is.
Which Bbcor bat has the biggest sweet spot?
Not your average one-piece bat, the Easton Maxum Ultra is changing baseball bats in 2021. The all-composite design gives this bat some of the best pop of all BBCOR bats in 2021. With a slightly end-loaded feel and the biggest barrel on the market, this bat has a huge sweet spot and a great swing.
