The bat rules keep changing and many players aren’t sure which bats are legal to use.  Rather than blowing $200-$300 on an illegal bat, below is a list of the best performing ASA legal bats.

The best legal bats currently on the market have escaped the new standards and have been “grandfathered” onto the The ASA Legal Softball Bat List even though they exceed the new 98 MPH standard.  What this means is that generally, all of the new, super expensive bats will not perform as well as the previous models they replaced.  The top legal bats perform at a 100 MPH standard which will usually not be matched by the newer models.

For better or for worse, the best of the "grandfathered" bats were made illegal in ASA competition as of January 2008.  While some of these bats can still be found on eBay for hundreds of dollars above their original price, their limited legal shelf life makes them prohibitively expensive.  Unless you already own the original 100 MPH Miken Freak, buying one new on eBay for upwards of $500 is silly unless you have a crazy amount of disposable income.      

Below are bats available which will (and do) conform to the ASA bat list and will be continue to be legal for the foreseeable future.  I have swung each of these bats and feel that all have merit and deserve recommendation.
