This site has lots of information, and if you look at Bat Policy above, you should have all of the information available that you need. Since you did not list a manufacturer, model, etc, more information would be needed, but you have all of the information now.

LeeM ... The USA/ASA bats are NOT legal for SSUSA sanctioned play ... Their bat/ball combination for testing is inconsistent with the SSUSA combination and desired results for safety compliance ... Thanks for asking ...

I'm curious 1.21 BPF and lower are allowed according to SSUSA bat policy.
Under SSUSA Approved Bats
All (BRAND NAME) slow-pitch bats stamped 1.21 or lower are approved.
I'm not sure maybe they have to be stamped with a certain logo and be stamped 1.21 or lower. Do they make a SSUSA stamped bat lower than 1.21 if they do I'm not aware of that product, does anybody know which
bats those are? I have players asking me if they can use bats that aren't 1.21 but 1.20 because they don't want to hit another HR!

Pre-2023 manufactured bats which have the BPF 1.21/1.20 designation were grandfathered in for use ... New USA/ASA bats do not have either that BPF or the NTS sticker ... So the determination remains the same: No appropriate BPF rating/sticker = Not legal for SSUSA sanctioned play ...

So the older non-senior bats ARE legal if they have a BPF rating/sticker of 1.21 or less.

Rob64 ... Generally, yes that's true ... There are a few NON-APPROVED bats listed at the bottom of the Approved Bat List dated 01/13/223 ...
