Bat testing January through March 2023

Dec 31, 2022

Managers, instruct your Players that they must choose their 2 favorite bats to be checked in.  This will be the policy through March, 2023.  If a Player breaks a bat during that time, they can ask the Director to check in a new one.  It is not necessary to have 5+ bats tested.  No one uses that many bats.  I played Major and Major Plus ball 45 years and I never had more than 2 bats.
