When you say 'back' do you mean that ASA has extended the grandfathering of the Freak and other 100 mph bats? Or do you mean that Miken is manufacturing it again? or both?

I am not aware the Freak is back. The following is posted on the ASA web site today. However, that was written in 2006.
"Grandfathered" Bats no longer authorized beginning
in 2008
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, — The Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA), the National
Governing Body of Softball in the United States, today announced that under a resolution
adopted by the ASA Board of Directors, bats submitted by manufacturers that were previously
allowed a 2 mph variance in the ASA’s test standards are no longer authorized for use in ASA
Championship Play effective January 1, 2008.
Commonly referred to by players and coaches as “grandfathered” bats, these bats were
allowed a 2 mph testing variance under the terms of an agreement the bat manufacturers and
ASA negotiated in the fall of 2003. These terms will no longer be in effect on January 1, 2008
thus making these bats illegal for use in ASA Championship Play.
According to the list provided to ASA under the terms of the agreement with each
manufacturer, the following bats will be placed on the non approved list on January 1, 2008
