Interesting results from a Fast Pitch Field Study conducted by Washington State's Dr. Lloyd Smith, who is in charge of our bat certification and testing processes. Information includes bats speeds from the 2013 NCAA Women’s College World Series as well as from the Men’s Fast Pitch and Modified Pitch divisions. The report also includes softball impact simulations.

Other studies planned for 2014 are bat and ball compliance testing, Identifying Tampered bats and human impact simulations.
