Fastpitch Softball Bats are primarilly used for play in girls and women playing fastpitch softball. Our best selling length to weight ratio is by far minus 10 ounces. Ranging from 25 inches in length for young girls to 34 inches in length for High School and College softball bats, all of our fastpitch bats have a 2 1/4" diameter bat barrel, and are legal for play in all softball associations, including but not limited to ASA and USSSA.

There are several factors to consider when choosing the right fast-pitch bats. Most important factors include your budget, type of bat, length and weight of bat, barrel size and certification.

1.You can get fast-pitch bats for $50 up to more than $300 depending on the manufacturer and bat features. It is important that you select a bat that is right for your playing ability  AND your budget.

2.Determine what type of material you want.

Mainly there are two choices, aluminum or composite. You’ll find heated debates on which material is better and  in the end, it comes down to your personal choice and amount of money you are willing to spend. Wood bats with an ASA stamp are ok too, though are somewhat uncommon in fast-pitch.

3.Bat Diameter and Length

All fastpitch softball bats must have a 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter and be no more than 34 inches in length or heavier than 31 1/2 oz. regardless of which association you play in.

 

4. Bat certification.

Most fast-pitch bats are certified by the ASA or USSSA, two very popular fast-pitch softball-governing bodies. The majority of fast-pitch players play in ASA sanctioned leagues. 2013 ASA certification will continue to use the 2004 or 2000 certification marks. The certification is normally printed on the barrel or head of your bat.

 ASA is considered the most highly regulated association in softball, followed by USSSA. If a different association governs your league, the chances are good that if your bat bears either the ASA or USSSA certification mark, it will be legal in your league. However, it’s always a good idea to check with your league for specific rules, regulations and lists of approved and non-approved bats. Make sure your equipment is certified according to your league rules.

Above all, the best thing you can do is try out a few bats and then narrow down your options. You have your personal preferences and what seems like a perfect choice on paper, might not be the right one when you have a swing at the ball.
