BPF is the Bat Performance Factor of a bat. During testing, a bat is locked into a stationary position and a baseball is shot towards the barrel at a high velocity. The BPF is how fast the ball goes after it bounces off of the bat. For instance, if the ball goes 10% faster after it comes off the bat, then the BPF is 1.10. Most leagues will not allow a bat with a BPF higher than 1.20 (or 20% higher velocity after it is struck)

The "BPF" rating is stamped on the tapered part of the baseball bat, just above handle/grip. The way I understand it, if your bat doesn't have the new USSSA BPF stamp, its not legal to use in most leagues. Check your local league for clarification.
A United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) 1.15 Bat Performance Factor (BPF) is a small barrel baseball bat. The BPF standard is based on the laws of physics.
No Little League bat has a bpf of 1.2. As of Jan 2009, a LL bat cannot exceed bpf 1.15.
No. BBCOR is a certification for a baseball bat to be used on the 90-foot base field. I don't even know what BPF is.
If you want to know the answer you have to go to this website:
BPF is the Bat Performance Factor. When a bat is tested, it is fixed in a stationery position. A ball is launched at a high speed towards the barrel of the bat. When the ball bounces off of the bat, the speed is recorded to find out how much faster it goes when it comes off of the bat. That is how the BPF is calculated. If the ball comes off of the bat at the same speed, the BPF is 1.00 If the ball comes off of the bat 20% faster, the BPF is 1.20
Sports Authority, I did verify they have softball bats with 1.21 BPF.
BPF is bat performance factor or the bounciness of the bat. The higher the number the more bounce a bat has which translates to the ball coming off the bat with more speed and inertia. Sanctioning bodies limit the BPF typically to a 1.20 or less.
The -8 is a Senior League (big barrel) bat. that category has no governing rules (yet), so no one measures their BPF.
