Well it is official. Grandfathered bats are out!!

"Grandfathered" Bats no longer authorized beginning in 2008
10/6/2006



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, — The Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA), the National Governing Body of Softball in the United States, today announced that under a resolution adopted by the ASA Board of Directors, bats submitted by manufacturers that were previously allowed a 2 mph variance in the ASA’s test standards are no longer authorized for use in ASA Championship Play effective January 1, 2008.

Commonly referred to by players and coaches as “grandfathered” bats, these bats were allowed a 2 mph testing variance under the terms of an agreement the bat manufacturers and ASA negotiated in the fall of 2003. These terms will no longer be in effect on January 1, 2008 thus making these bats illegal for use in ASA Championship Play.

According to the list provided to ASA under the terms of the agreement with each manufacturer, the following bats will be placed on the non approved list on January 1, 2008

Easton

Synergy2

Miken

Freak

Louisville Slugger

SB304

SB404

Worth

XGOLD-Fastpitch

XRED-Fastpitch

XPST4

WWSCA

SBWKA

did they forget about the OG crush? Or is it not hot enough for ASA? I don't care though, cause now I'll have the one of the only legal 100 mph bats. Unless they change their minds....

The way I am reading it is that only the bats with a +2 rating on the test are the ones that are banned. So some bats under the old 100mph rating system will still be allowed.

CNT+ is already banned in ASA this list only effects SPO and SPN. Also not all bats pre 2003 are 100mph even though it is stamped on the bat...there is a complete list on the ASA site.
