The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has advised the NFHS that on the basis of the performance testing by Washington State University Sports Science Laboratory, the BBCOR decertification process has been implemented for the Matte Military Green bat (see image below) with Black and Gold highlights (color) 33” model Stinger Bat Company Aluminum Missile II bat. The model number is MISL2233. The bat will be removed from the BBCOR Approved Bat list that is housed on the Washington State University Sports Science Laboratory website.
Since the Missile II no longer has the BBCOR designation, effective immediately, this bat (33″ length Stinger Bat Company Missile II aluminum bat) should be considered a non-compliant bat pursuant to NFHS Baseball Rules 1-3-2d and 7-4-1a. The manufacturer has the right to appeal this decision, WHICH IF REQUESTED WE WILL AFFORD PROMPTLY. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact B. Elliot Hopkins, NFHS Baseball Rules Editor/National Interpreter at ([email protected]) or the NFHS headquarters.
