FAQ

Which bats are allowed to be used in ESF tournaments?
 Bats used in ESF Competitions must have the current ISF logo and / or an ASA (USA Softball) logo and NOT be present on the ASA (USA Softball) non-approved bat list. Please check the list carefully: several bats have been added since 2015. Bats on that list cannot be approved. http://usa.asasoftball.com/e/build_batlist_one_page.asp
