Softball Bats - Check Them for 1.20 BPF

Please note that the ASA Certified Easton Ghost Two-Piece Composite Fastpitch Softball Bat (model number FP18GH9, FP18GH10, FP18GH11) does not have a BPF of 1.20 marking. However, other variations of the Ghost Two-Piece Composite Fastpitch Softball Bat (model numbers FP19GHU10, FP19GHU11) do include the printed BPF of 1.20 and are approved for use in Little League.

In all Tournament levels and divisions, the penalty for use of an illegal bat [see Rule 6.06(d)], if discovered before the next player enters the batter's box following the turn at bat of the player who used an illegal bat, is:

The batter is out. The ball is dead and runners must return if they advanced on the play (NOTE: The manager of the defense may advise the plate umpire of a decision to decline this portion of the penalty and accept the play. Such election shall be made immediately at the end of the play), and;
The manager of the team will be ejected from the game, the batter who violated the rule will be ejected from the game, and the offensive team will lose one eligible adult base coach for the duration of the game.
