    Banned bat list

    So we're still eight months from needing the new stamps and already there is a banned bat list.

    The following softball bats were improperly marked by an authorized USSSA Bat Manufacturer with the new USSSA mark on the taper as well as the old USSSA mark on the barrel. As such, these bats will not be legal in USSSA sanctioned play when the new USSSA mark on the taper is required for play in USSSA.
    Manufacturer Model Comments
    Easton Synergy Brian Wegman Edition Slow Pitch Softball Bat #SCN20BW
    Easton Stealth Brett Helmer Edition Slow Pitch Softball Bat #SCN17BH
    Easton Synergy Tri-Zone Slow Pitch Softball Bat #SCN18
    Easton Stealth Tri-Zone Slow Pitch Softball Bat #SCN19
    My question is, I take this to mean that all instances of these model numbers will now be illegal 1-1-13, but some have stated that only those particular bats with both stamps will be. What do you all think?

    And now USSSA has reversed itself.

    I haven't decided if I should call it from the dugout or the outfield. Apparently, both have really great views!

    Screw green, it ain't easy being blue!

    95% of all calls are covered by 5% of the rules. It's the remaining 5% that gets us into trouble, and it's by that 5% that we are measured as umpires.

    Happiness is having good catchers.
