1 bat per player. Please adhere to that as we have hundreds to test.
It is the players responsibility to provide my tester with a legal usssa bat- no 220's/etc.
Also your responsibility to keep the sticker on the bat.
The penalty for no sticker or non approved bat is- An out and bat rechecked if legal.
All failed bats can be retrieved from the office after you have been eliminated.
After 2.00 Pm you can test any bat you want for a 3.00 fee-cash- we will keep it if it fails.
It has came to my attention that there has been some sticker switching shenanigan's going on. We may do some spot checking during the day, if spot check you bat and something weird tests out, the player or the team could face elimination.We can spot check a bat at anytime a player enters the box.
All players must be online and in eligible status to be legal.
