Questions and Answers for DeMarini Distance: DXDSR Senior League
Which would be a better transition bat, the DXDSR or the Easton SL14S400?
Bothe DeMarini Distance and the Easton S400 would be ideal for transitioning into a heavier bat. Both bats are well balanced design.
Is this bat a composite bat?
The DeMarini Distance: DXDSR Senior League is a one-piece aluminum design.
Is this bat USSSA approved?
The 28" and 30" DeMarini Distance: DXDSR Senior League have the new USSSA stamp, but the 29" bat does not.
Is it a baseball bat?
The DeMarini Distance: DXDSR Senior League is a Youth Big Barrel baseball bat.
My son plays Little League in one of the Little League International leagues. Is this bat legal for the 2013 season? If so, he is 5'6" and weighs 105 pounds. Would this be a good bat for him?
The 2012 DeMarini Distance: DXDSR Senior League bat will not have the new updated USSSA stamp and markings on it. I would ask a coach or league official if your bat is legal. Your boy is recommended to be swinging a 31" bat length at his size.
Can I use this bat in Spring league Babe Ruth? I'm 13 years old.
Yes. Only composite bats have to be BBCOR certified in the Babe Ruth 13-15 division. Because this is an alloy bat the DeMarini Distance will be eligible for play.
Does the bat have a seal of approval from the state?
The 2012 DeMarini Distance does have the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp on the 28 in. and 30 in. models. The 29 in. model does not have the stamp.
is your DSR11 distance USSSA rated
The Demarini Distance is approved, and features the USSSA stamp on the 28" and 30" models. The 29" model doesn't feature the stamp, so it wouldn't be legal for play in 2012. Here is the link to the DXDSR to view more features on this model. http://www.justbats.com/product/2012-demarini-distance--dxdsr-senior-league/14264/
is the 31 inch allowed for babe ruth play 15u?
Yes. It absolutely is legal in Babe Ruth play.
Pony (pinto) rules states that bats may be 2 5/8 in diameter but not stamped tee ball or coach pitch (unless using safety ball). I assume Senior league bats are allowed??? Can you please clarify before I purchase.
The DXDSR is not a coach pitch or tee ball bat and may be used in Pony League.
Yes, Senior League bats will be allowed. Senior League means big barrel bats. Some Senior League bats will have 2 3/4" barrels, please make sure to read the features before purchasing.
Why would the 29 inch not have the stamp?
For some reason at this point in time (1/23/2012) the models we received from Demarini do not have the stamp in the 29".
Does the 30/22 have the USSSA 1.15 stamp on it?
The 30" and 28" bats we have in stock are stamped, the 29"'s are not.
There is no USSSA or 1.15 bpf stamp on my son's 31/23 2012 DeMarini "Distance." Am I out of Luck?
We suggest contacting DeMarini with this issue and they may be able to send you a bat with that stamp.
I purchased a "2011 DeMarini Distance" 31/23 last fall for son. It has no USSA Stamp. Is it Legal?
Even though it doesn't have the exact USSSA stamp, it should have the 1.15BPF stamp on it. The information given to us says, if the bat has the 1.15bpf stamp it will be grandfathered in and be legal in 2012, but ALL bats will be required to have the USSSA stamp by 2013.
Just received this bat, and there is not a USSSA 1.15 stamp on it. It says in the features it has one and is legal. Is that correct and I was just sent the wrong bat? I will be returning it, just need to know if I need to look at a different bat.
Currently the stamp is only on the 28/20oz. The 29" does not have the stamp.
Where does this bat rank in the scheme of things?
Quite honestly, it is one of DeMarini's mid range bats. Since it's a -8, and it is more than likely a transitional bat. Gradually preparing for the -3 you have to swing in high school. It's a one piece all alloy, it has a good pop, and would be good for a transition.
