Certified Bats

Approved Baseball Bats

Bat performance is measured in a controlled laboratory environment using an air cannon as described in the glossary. To measure the performance of baseball bats, the Bat-Ball Coefficient of Restitution (or BBCOR) test protocol is followed. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the National High school Federation (NHFS) use the BBCOR test to approve baseball bats.

This is achieved by special laminating under super high pressure during the manufacturing process, rock hard Hickory in the handle and Pacific Madrone in the barrel for balance. This is the bat you want to use when the game is on the line. These hardwoods add unparalleled strength, balance, and stiffness, effectively creating a bigger sweet spot (5 more hits from every 100 at bats will raise your average 50 points) with more power transmitted to the ball on contact.

Schools that have outlawed metal bats

This new standard measures bat performance and replaces the previous BESR standard. Beginning in January 2011 for NCAA  (college) play and January 2012 for NFHS (high school) play, all bats must be BBCOR.5 certified. BESR (Ball Exit Speed Ratio) is no longer considered accurate enough to determine the actual performance of differing bat models.

Instead of measuring the speed of the ball after it is batted, BBCOR.50 measures the "bounciness" of the ball and bat, or the "trampoline" effect. When a bat hits a ball, the ball actually compresses / deforms by nearly a third at high pitch velocities.

Rawlings Gear

Bat performance is specified by using the BBCOR.50, which for mathematicians is calculated using the inbound and rebound speeds of the ball:

American Legion teams moving to wood bats in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Florida.

As of 2012, American Legion Baseball will adopt the BBCOR standard to adhere to the National Federation of High School rules and NCAA rules. BESR bats will be banned and BBCOR certified bats will be incorporated with a logo to help umpires and coaches identify approved bats.

What states require wood baseball bats?

What school districts require wood baseball bats?

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The membership of the New Mexico Activities Association has voted via referenda to implement the use of wood/composite wood bats in the sport of baseball at the high school level, as a one year trial, for the 2012 baseball season.

In 2012, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) will implement new bat standards on metal bats; all metal bats must adhere to BBCOR certification. This change will result in schools/athletes having to purchase new BBCOR bats for the 2011-2012 school year.

With the affirmative vote of the NMAA membership, New Mexico high school baseball teams will only be permitted to use wood/composite wood bats for the 2012 season. BBCOR metal bats will not be allowed for NMAA sanctioned high school baseball games during 2012.

Will Legion move to wood bats? .Thursday, 28 July 2011 09:20 . .With three statewide American Legion baseball programs mandating wood bats and several others evaluating a switch, we could see a nationwide shift in the country's major youth baseball program toward traditional baseball.

Update Pennsylvania follows the lead of Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, North Dakota, New Mexico and Florida Legion programs now mandate wood bats, and several other state programs are evaluating a switch. If enough states switch to wood bats, the change could be implemented nationwide. The national Legion program has already switched to less-severe metal bat that match the new NCAA specs instituted this season, which shifted power in the game from batters to pitchers.

The debate over metal bats versus wood bats is a continuous one: metal bats cost more upfront but will last for years, while wood bats cost less and break more easily. Metal-bat advocates say they're safer than wood bats because there's no danger of a metal bat shattering. When we talk with players at the summer-collegiate level, though, most are pretty happy with the switch to wood bats: after all, the pros use wood bats.

If Legion programs mandate wood bats, one can foresee a scenario where high-school programs follow suit. And if that happens, college programs will be under more pressure to switch to wood bats. Most baseball fans have never gotten used to the ping of metal bats on the college level, where the NCAA has withstood calls to switch to wood. The politics of NCAA baseball would make such a switch difficult, thanks to the liberal spending by metal-bat vendors among coaches, programs and big events like the College World Series. But at some point the economics will be such that reliable wood bats are close to par with metal bats -- and that's when you'll see real change

In production since 1992, Baum Bats are made to BBCOR.50 Rules

2012 USSSA Baseball Bat Rules
7.01.C.A. Material. THE BAT may be made of hard wood of one piece, or laminated from sections of hard wood bonded together with adhesive in such a way that the grain directions of all the pieces are essentially parallel to the length of the bat.

The American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC) officially endorses the Baum Bat! Rule 221(e) Baum Bats

American Legion Baseball follows the bat regulations of the NCAA, it’s up to individual states to vote to switch back to wood. The following list are states and their respective league that have switched back to wood bats as far as I know today. There may be other teams that have switched independently, is so lets hear who you are, or correct me if I am wrong with any of these.

Connecticut American Legion Baseball
New York City High School Baseball (no bamboo)
North Dakota High School and American Legion Baseball
New Mexico High School Baseball
Rhode Island American Legion Baseball
Pennsylvania American Legion Baseball

South Dakota, New Mexico and NYC all require the use of wood bats at the high school level.

Some teams were “rolling” their bats to make them more flexible, or placing the bat between two nylon or hard rubber rollers and rolling it. This artificially ages the bat, and boosts its trampoline effect.

“BAT Rolling was a big problem, not just at the high school level but the collegiate level also,”

The practice of “bat rolling” is banned by both the NCAA and the FHSAA. Starting in 2012, all aluminum and composite bats must meet the BBCOR specifications.

The change will also require that all non-wood bats meet the Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) performance standard, which is the standard used by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Formerly, non-wood bats had to meet the Ball Exit Speed Ratio (BESR) standard.

The new rule also states that non-wood bats must be labeled with a rectangular certification mark “a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color.” The new standard ensures that performances by non-wood bats are more comparable to those of wood bats. It’s also expected to minimize risk, improve play and increase teaching opportunities.

BANGOR, Maine — First there was the crack of a wooden bat, then the ping of an aluminum bat.
This year, high school baseball players, coaches and fans around Maine will be introduced to what Husson University sophomore infielder Cody McInnis describes as a “whop” — the sound the ball makes when it comes in contact with bats developed in accordance with new standards designed to slow the speed of the ball upon impact and make the game safer.

Grown in America Hand
Made in the USA
American Beech Wood Bats
Why Swing Beech:
The natural wood sap fills in the microscopic fiber matrix when dried causing a denser wood than maple, ash and birch. The beech bat surface will compressed with every hit and then rebound when the bat ball contact is made . Beech bats will have more flex allowing a stronger whipping action when hitting a baseball. A denser wood will vibrate less thus providing more ball bat explosion on contact. American Beech bats made here in America are always delivered freshly made.
