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.
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.
BPF Party was created in 1988.
USSSA Pride was created in 2009.
USSSA stands for United States Specialty Sports Association. Click on the 'USSSA' link on this page to go to their website.
No Little League bat has a bpf of 1.2. As of Jan 2009, a LL bat cannot exceed bpf 1.15.
Is BPF 15 little league bat rating the same as 1.15
Sports Authority, I did verify they have softball bats with 1.21 BPF.
is it illegal to use a bpf 1.15 in the state of babe ruth
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
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)
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.
ADP or apparatus dew point is the saturation temperature (Ts) of moist air in contact with a cooling coil. ADP or Ts is related to the coil by pass factor (BPF) by the relation: BPF = (Tc - Ts)/ (To - Ts) -------(1) Where Tc = cooling coil temperature Ts = ADP To = outside air dry bulb temperature Rearranging (1) yields Ts = (Tc - To . BPF)/(1-BPF) -----(2) In an ideal (adiabatic) system BPF =0, and Ts =Tc.
