USA Softball Certified Equipment

USA Softball periodically and randomly tests samples of bat models bearing the USA Softball approved certification mark to verify compliance with USA Softball bat performance standards. Below are links for press releases announcing results of compliance testing as well as FAQ's regarding bat models withdrawn from USA Softball Championship play until further notice. The Non-Approved Bats with USA Softball Certification Marks link above contains the most up-to-date listing of bat models withdrawn from USA Softball Championship play. Models placed on that list will be allowed for use in USA Softball Championship play if they bear the USA Softball recertification mark (shown in the link below).
