Damaged vs. Illegal Bats

Clarification was needed to delineate the difference between a player using a bat that is damaged versus a bat that is illegal for NFHS high school play.

By definition, a bat that is damaged (NFHS Rule 2-4-3c) is removed from the game without penalty (NFHS 7-4-2 NOTE).

An illegal bat that is non-approved or altered will continue to result in the head coach and the batter being ejected.
