Non-Linear Bat Compression Thresholds

A non-linear bat is a bat whose structure deviates from the traditional single wall, multi wall and/or layered composite designs.

The bats' performance will consistently and repeatedly produce BCT results softer than the existing threshold and have not produced a BBS over 98.
