The proposed rule changes for the 2012 ASA season have been announced.
NOTE: I made a reading error on rule 6. The first part is right, but then I said the word "attached" was changed to "taped." I should have said the word "taped" was changed to "covered." The rest of the statement is correct.
UPDATE: ASA has now published the new rules in their final form, and they have dropped the reference to BPF numbers. They have also stipulated that this change is for senior championship tournaments only:
Rule 3 Section 1A : Exception: Senior Softball bats may be used in Senior Championship Play.
Comment: Add an exception to Rule 3 Section 1 that Senior Softball bats may be used in Senior Championship Play only.
