Actually, NSA bats are required to meet the BPF 1.20 rating. The actual speed (mph) is a 100 mph rating, not 120 mph. The same bats that are used in NSA are used in USSSA and many other leagues. The past several years, I've seen close calls for the player at the pitcher's postion in both ASA leagues and USSSA and NSA leagues. There have always been safety concerns for the pitcher in slow pitch softball no matter what league or regulations you're playing under. We always have an experienced softball player pitch for us.
