Does anyone here have any expierience or information regarding the use of
Fast Pitch bats in the Slow Pitch game? I play on a good San Francisco Slow
Pitch co-ed team, and one of our women recently bought a "bottle bat" type
fast pitch bat. She's having some success using it, and now we're
considering getting another (lighter) one for the women to use.
As far as I know, it's perfectly legal to use these bats in our league. The
only outlawed bats are multi-wall bats. The reason the women seem to dig the
fast pitch bat is:
1) that they come in lighter weights (we've got a 25 oz. bat now, and we're
considering getting a 24).
2) they're BALANCED (as opposed to the end-loaded slow pitch bats) and
3) they have a larger hitting area.
(By the way: The bat we're considering is the Louisville TPS "Air Attack"
Lisa Fernandez model 34" long, 17" barrel 24 oz weight.)
Thanks in advance,
