All bats being used in the ASA of PA District 6 Class "E" Championship will be tested before use.
Bats will be tested via Amatuer Softball Association recommended bat compression testing equipment.
The tester will be available prior to everyone's first game at the Herb Pennock Park Softball Complex in Kennett Square.
Bats will only be allowed for use in the tournament if they have BOTH the ASA Certification stamp and a Kennett Square security sticker.
Tournament Director Kevin Garris from the District 6 staff and his designate for the bat testing will not be responsible for any questions raised concerning the approval results, but will attempt to provide information about the guidelines.
ASA Governing Body recommended equipment is being utilized to improve the safety of all participants and spectators.
No non-approved bats are to be considered as altered in any way, but merely as equipment that does not meet the ASA bat standards.
Any bat failing at any part of the testing will be deemed not allowable for play in the tournament.
Teams should plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to their first game to have their bats tested.
