NFHS/College Composite Bat Ban

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) ruled to ban most composite bats for the 2010-2011 season.  Beyond next year, they will adopt the BBCOR certification that is currently used in the NCAA.  Below is a list of things you should know for the upcoming season and beyond.

College Baseball (NCAA)

2010/2011 Season

  • January 1, 2011: All bats must be BBCOR certified
  • Must meet ABI testing standards:  ABI testing simulates heavy use, and confirm the bats performance does not improve over time.


Ball-Bat Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR)

  • BBCOR measures the trampoline effect of bats, and will make aluminum bats perform like the best wood bats.
  • The trampoline effect in a bat is the transfer of energy from the pitched ball to the bat.
  • A pitched ball has a lot of energy.  When it is hit by a solid wood bat, the ball compresses and loses its energy.
  • A thin walled, hollow metal bat acts as a trampoline for the ball.  The bat absorbs the ball without the ball losing its energy.  The ball exits the bat at a much faster rate.
  • BBCOR bats are now available
