As you prepare for the upcoming season here are a few reminders which the CIAC Baseball Committee would like to call to your attention:
Bats: The bat rule adopted January 1, 2012 remains in effect. Currently, there are three (3) non- wood baseball bats that the NFHS has decertified for use in high school competition. This short list is subject to change. Additional non-wood baseball bats could possibly be added to this list and you can check periodically at: http://www.nfhs.org/content.aspx?id=8394 The decertified bats as of this date are the following: Marucci Cat 52 33″ non-wood baseball bat (Decertification notice date: February 21, 2012) Reebok Vector TLS 32″ non-wood baseball bat (Decertification notice date: March 26, 2012) Reebok Vector TLS 33″ non-wood baseball bat (Decertification notice date: March 26, 2012) These bats should be considered non-compliant and subject to NFHS Baseball Rules 4-1-3b and7-4-1a.
