An approved bat is a bat that has been tested and is approved by ASA. ASA stands for the Amateur Softball Association. Bats that are approved will have a stamp towards the cap of the bat that looks like home plate and it will have a year in it.
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.
asa ur face hahahahahahha
Asa softball field demensions
For slow pitch softball, the mound is 50 feet from home plate for men, women, and girls. For boys under 18 it's 43 feet, and for boys under 15 it's 46 feet.
ASA and USSSA women's softball is classified as a 12 inch softball
In coed asa softball a 12 softball inch for men and an 11 inch for women softball.
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.
The miken mv1 is NOT ASA approved. If you are looking for any ASA bat I would try the miken super freak 98. Oh and try Kelly's ultimate sports. They always have good deals. Just give them a call. When you talk to them they give you a better deal then online. Thanks Nick
Fastpitch softball ASA bases are 60 feet apart.
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.
There is ASA softball which is club team in a way like AAU
There are a number of associations in softball but I will presume you are asking about ASA (amateur softball association).
asa, usfa, usssa
It is a senior bat and is to hot for asa.
Well, Probably a 12" ball.
it means angle-side-angle and is to do with constructing triangles i no i am a clever chap at 12. It may mean angle-sided-angle too but asa stands for Amateur Softball Association. ASA is a world wide softball association.
in ASA rules yes in USSSA softball rules no
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.
