If I understand the heat treatment as I have read on other sites, that would be altering
the bats through a process other than just hitting a softball. That would make the bats illegal under current SSUSA rules.

I didn't know anything about heat treated it came that way and no it's not a altered bat if it was I wouldnt use it cause I don't need to!!! I hit the ball 230 ft anywhere on the field anytime I want to!! I hit for averages 850 or better in these tournaments without any home runs!!! Haven't hit home run in 20 years!! People always need to complain about something!!! For 15 years I didn't even own a bat I can pick any bat up in dugout!! And the bats I own now and have had for Years r not even broke in cause I'm a base hitter!! This is my fourth year at senior ball I have yet to be out hit in all the tournaments I have played in!! Jesus takes care of me he would help u if u let him!! Let's hear from Brother Dave on this!!

We had this discussion last year around this time regarding Kellyís heated bat breaki-in process

https://seniorsoftball.com/?messageboard&viewby_thread=138376&message_topic_id=review&keywordsfound=Heat+treat

Dave did comment by way of stating SSUSA definition of an ďaltered ď bat.

You may interpret for yourself what that means in relation to your new bat..

To my knowledge, no one has ever been challenged at a senior tournament for prepping a bat this way. But itís Not likely that anyone has ever admitted doing it, either.

bill

When the "Heated" bat was delivered to you, did it have the original wrapper on it?

If so, how could the bat remain in it's original wrapper and the wrapper not melt or show signs of being heating?

When the guy give me the bat that I ordered he said it was heat-treated I did not know what that was it was not in a wrapper he said all it does is make it to where it breaks in faster and with me hitting the ball it still won't be broke in in 3 years if heat treating a bat is altering the bat do you think I would have put it on here if I knew come on people get a life

Cowboy Jimmy, The reason I did my post was I assumed that you did NOT know that the heat treatment might be a problem. Was not trying to cause you any problems just wanted you to know that this treatment might be considered an alteration of the bat. My opinion is that this treatment falls in the same category as rolling. JMO.

We shouldn't have to keep posting this, but here we go again ... Whether or not we will be able to differentiate between a "heat treated" vs. a "normal" bat will likely be difficult ... Apparently, some players appear to believe that it's not cheating (read: using an altered bat) if you don't get caught ... Late last year, we acquired bat testers and they are making random facility appearances at all of our Home Office administered events now ... It's probably wise, and certainly moral and ethical, to leave your altered bats at home so you don't become "that guy" who gets to read about his suspension on the front page in an upcoming issue of the Senior Softball News ...

"..Any activity, other than normal wear and tear through the process of striking a softball with the bat in the manner intended by the manufacturer, AND which serves to alter the technical specifications and performance of that bat from what it was immediately after coming off the production line, is illegal and constitutes altering that bat.." ...
