Really. Well, live and learn. Guess I can break out the old Freak '98 in the closet.

Is that an ASA only rule in regards to bats made prior to 2000? I don't do ASA, just NFHS and USSSA. NFHS rule 1-5-1d states:

"The bat shall meet the 2004 ASA Bat Performance Standard, bear either the 2000 or 2004 certification mark, and not be listed on the ASA non-approved bat list."

I don't see an exception for bats made prior to 2000 in the NFHS rulebook.
