An ASA Certification Mark
must appear on ASA Softball Bats
The ASA (Amateur Softball Association of America) regulates softball bats and softballs used in ASA Championship Play. An ASA certification mark must appear on any bat made since the year 2000.
A softball bat must meet certain requirements before a certification mark can appear on a bat. The bats are tested in an approved testing facility. Wooden softball bats do not need to be certified.
ASA softball bats are based on batted ball speed (BBS). This is the speed of the ball coming of a bat. The standard places a maximum limit on how fast a ball can come of a bat.
ASA is a volunteer, not-for-profit organization based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It was founded in 1933 and has about 3 million members.
