WHAT IS A BLEM? A blem is a new bat, still in the wrapper. A cosmetic blem or blemish is when there is a minor paint imperfection somewhere on the bat. There could be a paint discoloration, a paint run, a smudge, logos could be off-center, the stencil outline of the logo could be too low or too high, possible minor paint chip, etc. MOST IMPORTANTLY the integrity of the blemished softball or baseball bat has NOT been compromised. The blem bat will hit to its capacity and here's the best part, you save BIG BUCKS. Manufacturer's warranty does NOT apply.

USSSA Certified Softball Bat
USSSA has used a 1.20 BPF standard in its softball programs for 15 years. The BPF standard was developed by NYU Physics Professor Dr. Richard A. Brandt over 15 years ago. The BPF standard is based on fundamental laws of physics that allow Dr. Brandt's testing lab to measure the relative performance of bats to be used in USSSA play.
