EMASS POLICY REGARDING BATS

As was recently posted, the EMASS Board has banned the Anarchy Awakening Bat from use in all EMASS Divisions. It is felt that the bat, though ASA approved, could be a safety concern.

In order to formulate a safe and sensible bat policy going forward, the EMASS Board is now in the process of gathering information and analyzing the many proposals that have been offered. Until this process is concluded, it is recommended that players not purchase new bats for use in EMASS.
