Test question

I missed this question on the NFHS 2017 Part 1 test. I do not have this years rule book yet but it seems to me all of the statements are correct.

Regarding the taper of a softball bat, which statement is not in compliance with the current rules?
A. The taper connects the narrower handle to the wider portion of the bat.
B. The taper of a bat is defined as having a solid surface.
C. The taper shall have a conical shape since it connects the narrower handle to the wider portion of the bat.
D. All are answers are correct.

New this year, C is no longer correct. When you get your book, see Rule 1-5-2c on Page 13 and the list of 2017 Rules Changes just past the title page.

"B" -- the taper no longer has to be solid.

Basically, a bat similar to this one is now legal in NFHS.

Test question

With R1 on first, B2 bunts a ball to F5 and both R1 and B2 advance safely. The defense protests the batter before the next pitch because B2 batted with a Reebok Vector that has holes in the taper part of the bat. B2 is declared out and R1 is put back on first base. FALSE
