Re:Less damage ????
I doubt USSSA is going to change their bat stamp testing methods though to get the batted ball speeds down. Shooting a stadium ball out of a cannon towards a bat at a speed that’s supposed to simulate the swing speed of an average C player to make sure the bat doesn’t exceed ~98-100mph (whatever the 1.20 BPF equates to) means that things are going to get crazy when you put that bat in a conference players hands. ASA tests with an 80 mph “swing”, and i imagine that very few conference players are at or below 80
