There is no limit to the drop; that only applies to baseball. The only requirement for a softball bat to be used in high school softball is that it must be ASA (Amateur Softball Association) approved and so marked on the bat. The current marking is the phrase ASA 2004 inside the outline of a home plate.
Softball bats are designed to hit softballs. Hitting a baseball with a softball bat may damage the bat. Either hit a softball or get a baseball bat if you do not want to risk damaging your bat.
Go with the Easton Salvo or The Demarini J2 Flyswatter. Awsome Bats.
You would need a softball bat in combat if there is no other weapon available. A softball bat is useful in combat because of the length of the bat and the hardness of the bat.
Air. A softball bat is an empty cylinder.
to hit a softball.
I guess they are more heavier than softball bats
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.
In the U.S. and possibly other countries, any the ASA (Amateur Softball Association) approve are legal. The bat would say ASA approved somewhere on it. This applies to women's and girl's travel teams and school teams.
completely! a softball is less hard than a baseball but a baseball bat will not harm the softball in any way
its the weight of the bat the heavier the bat the further the ball will go the same in fast pitch softball
A softball bat with a barrel over 2 an 1/4 inches in diameter, used by leagues with younger softball players
The maximum speed in which a softball can come off the bat at in mph. (The bat's composition or structure is designed to limit the speed of the ball off the bat to 120mph)
You may be wondering what the difference is among a slowpitch softball bat, a fastpitch softball bat and a regular baseball bat. The difference is in the technology of designing the bat. The length, weight and barrel diameter, among other features, are the main differences. Manufacturers have determined the size and weight that are optimal for hitting a slowpitch softball versus fastpitch, and have designed them accordingly.softballpickles .com
No, the 120 is what makes in only USSSA ISA NSA approved. You can almost always find the same model bat you are looking for. In this case the new Jeff Hall Worth Mayhem Reload, in the the 98 form. ASA only accepts 98's or lower.
The softball bat and the baseball bat weigh diffrent. The adult slow pitch for a softball bat is from 26oz to 30oz while a adults baseball is from 28oz to 31oz. And the length range is diffrent to the softball one is from 33" to 34" the baseball one is 31" to 34".
With a bat
In baseball, the ball is smaller and harder. You use a smaller sized bat than you do in softball. In softball, the ball is softer and bigger. The bat you use is bigger than the type of bat you use in baseball.
When selecting a softball bat a few things need to be considered; age, height, and weight of the person who will be using the bat, type of material the bat is made from, the grip, the drop; length-to-weight ratio, and if a youth bat or adult bat is needed. Easton has many choices in beginner's softball bats including youth and adult bats.
It's a softball bat.
it depends on your bat. if it is, it says BBCOR APPROVED on the barrel
There is no such thing as a 31 length 21 oz. -8 softball bat. The -8 stands for the difference in the length and weight of the bat. Meaning..31 minus 21 will never equal 8
yes there is a difference because a major league baseball bat is wood and a girls are metal. also i minor leagues girls say softball and boys say baseball. once my friend was using a baseball bat and was hitting better. in softball you can not use a baseball bat! ---- never use a baseball bat in softball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is no average size for a softball bat. The lengths can run from 24 to 34 inches depending on the height or ages of the players.
