The 10 Best ASA Softball Bats
This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in November of 2018. The Amateur Softball Association of America not only sets standards for equipment, but tests and certifies specific items in order to keep an accurate list of approved gear. We've compiled a list of bats that can be used for slow-pitch or fast-pitch without violating the guidelines set by the organization, ensuring fair play in your league while allowing you to hit for power. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. If you'd like to contribute your own research to the Wiki, please get started by reviewing this introductory video.

Though many of the selections here are newer models, new is not always better when it comes to softball. This is because the most important aspect of all these choices is that they are ASA approved. Changes in manufacturing, along with changes in guidelines, can mean that the newer version no longer works with your league. It's a good idea to check the rules before you get too used to any new equipment.
