IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT EASTON SOFTBALL BATS
Sun 31 Jan 2016
The American Amateur Softball Association (ASA) has recently published the following announcement on its website:
"ASA/USA Softball, the National Governing Body for softball in the United States, in working with Easton Baseball/Softball Inc (Easton), announced today that Easton is voluntarily removing the following softball bat models from the ASA/USA list of certified bats:
Organisations that currently use ASA’s bat performance standards such as the NCAA, NFHS, NAIA and NJCAA may restrict such bats from play in 2016 and beyond."
All of these bats have now turned up on the ASA's latest non-approved bats list, which can be downloaded here: http://usa.asasoftball.com/e/build_batlist_one_page.asp.
Since the British and European Softball Federations do not allow bats from this list to be used in competition, anyone thinking of buying one should probably think again.
BASU is in contact with the ASA and we will provide more information as soon as we can.

They have been added to the non approved list.
Does the link pull up the complete banned bats list? The text suggests it does but the list in the link is shorter than I expected! Ta
