I don't know what the "legal" umpire answer would be, but I do know that fastpitch bats are made lighter so they can be swung quicker. It seems like you would want to use a slowpitch bat in slowpitch for the extra power you would get from the extra weight of the bat.

There is no rule against it as long as the bat is an approved bat in the league you are playing in, i.e. ASA, USSSA, ISA, NSA.

How do you choose a softball bat?

This is a tough question to answer. A softball bat is a very personal thing. It depends on how old you are, how tall you are, and how strong you are. Let me start by stating that the right softball bat is one you can swing! In fastpitch softball it is all about bat speed. The heaviest bat you can swing at FULL speed is the right bat. There are two measurements for a bat. 1) Length, 2)Weight. Weight can be anywhere from 18oz to 24oz. Length may be from 24" to 34". A 5-7 year old may use a 24" bat. While an 18 year old may use an 34" bat. There is one more measurement that you will see. The Weight-Length value. For example, a 20" bat that weights 30oz is a -10. Bats that are -10, -11, and -12 are very popular.
