This just in:

Probably the most popular USABat purchased has now been decertified.
Make sure you let your league/ parents know asap!

So do they buy the bats back?
I don't have a horse in this race but if I did I would not be very happy right now.

The funny thing is that the 31/21 is still legal

I have not heard any of our kids call the Ghost X out for having unusual 'pop' in the first place either.
It is funny.

And you probably never will, at least not this early.
Composite bats take a lot of time to break in and these bats are tested to failure.

Plus it's just the 30/20 model, not any of the other length/weight variants.
Definitely a nightmare scenario for Easton.

It's horrible timing for our players too; there are several teams who primarily use this bat.

Easton's top of the line bat is usually the best seller every year and I can't imagine it being any different this year, especially when everyone had to buy a brand new one.
I would guess that the 30/20 variant is the most popular as well.

Just got an email from our Travel League and they are giving everyone a 3 day grace period so the bat can be used through Sunday and will become illegal starting Monday.
