Bats

BAT RULE CHANGE: starting in 2019, all composite bats will be banned. Single wall bats will be the only allowable bats. You may continue to use composite bats for the 2018 season only.

To make sure all coaches and players are aware of which bats are approved or banned, please reference the information below. EACH TEAM is responsible for ensuring the bats they use are allowed - if a team needs help, they can reach out to the division coordinator.

For a bat to be allowed for use it must meet the following criteria:

  • It must be ASA stamped. It can have other stamps, but the ASA stamp must be one of them.
  • It must be single walled or composite. Double and Triple walled bats are not allowed. Baseball bats are also not allowed.
  • It must not be on the banned bats list.

To find out whether a bat is ASA approved or banned, go to this site: http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Softball/Play-ASA/Certified-ASA-Equipment.aspx.

From there, choose Bats from the drop down menu and click Go. On the next page there is a section for Approved Bats where you can see all of the ASA approved bats. There is also a section of Non-Approved Bats that contains the 3 lists of banned bats.

For further info and guidance on bats, please refer to the league rules linked above.


Below are the MBSL approved bats for each team. If a question of a bat's legality arises on the field, please consult this list to help clarify the situation. If a bat is not on this list, it should not be used in a game.

(coming soon)
