Joe, Kevin and Anthony of your District ASA staff (and the 847 other ASA people Joe has on his staff) are just trying to make things safer and also give your games just one less thing to argue about. The fighting about who has this and who has that is getting crazy. This will make a nice Sunday Softball experience.
Will the testing stop it completely?, no. will it help?, it does. The last 4 years at the ASA states, the bats that do not pass the test had decreased dramatically. They have 3 straight Mondays set up to test. Kevin lives in West Chester, so it's out of his way also.
And this all is for just peace of mind, especially for knuckleheads like you who pitch. They stated there is no penalty if one fails, nobody gets punished, just can't use the bat in this particular league. Some places actually take your bat for further testing and inspection and then impose penalties. Here, there is yes its good, put the sticker on, or no, doesn't meet the standard, no sticker for you.
Just trying to make you look at it from another point of view. Wish you the best this year- Steve
