Quick question......Is bat warming legal? Saw an interesting pic from a high school that was retweeted by a leading state high school baseball site pertaining to it on twitter yesterday, and I assumed this was a form of doctoring the bat. I've been wrong before though.

I don't know from a high school baseball, but it's perfectly legal in slow pitch softball. I can't imagine why it would be illegal.

Illegal. Rule 1-3-5 No artificial or intentional means shall be used to control the temperature of the bat.

There's also a Case Play 1.3.5 Situation F In between innings, the plate umpire notices that the home team is using an electric heater in its dugout to warm bats. RULING: Using any artificial means to control the temperature of a bat is illegal.

If it was the picture of three bats in an oven, I don't think they were truly being warmed.....

That was the picture I referring to.....I guess I would hope a program wouldn't seriously put that out there. Thanks though for the info on the rule.

Softball bats are very temperature picky. That's why warming them is legal. Manufacturers say keep them above 60 degrees so they don't snap. Bat rolling is legal in ASA as well last I checked which allows the bat to have peak performance for the life of he bat instead of dealing with the break in period.

I would love to see what dugout has an oven in it!!!! That should have been the first "giveaway" that someone was just having a little fun!!!


I was referring to putting the picture out there, not the oven!!!
