My son is starting middle school baseball. I'm confused about which bats are legal. Can they use BBCOR bats or USSSA 1.15 BPF certified bats?
The 2014 Easton S500 (SL14S500 Senior League) would come with the USSSA 1.15 BPF certification. As far as middle school is concerned, rules are different all over the country. It is best to check with a coach or league director. The BBCOR bats are more restrictive and lower performing than the USSSA 1.15 BPF bats. You will not have an issue using a BBCOR bat in your league due to the more restrictive guidelines, but they are significantly heavier than the USSSA models. If you can use them, I would highly suggest a USSSA certified bat over a BBCOR for a middle school athlete.
