The mystery behind BBCOR

One of the top questions potential customers ask, is are our bats BBCOR approved. Let’s find out what BBCOR is, who needs to be BBCOR certified, and if Cooperstown Bat is BBCOR certified.

In January of 2011 the NCAA put in effect the requirement for bats to be BBCOR certified for collegiate competition. Since then high schools, and men’s leagues across the Nation have followed. The BBCOR (Bat-Ball Coefficient of Restitution) test measures the speed at which the baseball exits the bat after contact. This is the heart of BBCOR. Other requirements include: A bats length-to-weight differential cannot exceed 3, and barrel diameter cannot be greater than 2.625 inches. All bats constructed with materials other then one-piece solid wood used in NCAA competition must be BBCOR certified.

Did you catch it? “All bats constructed with materials other then one-piece solid wood”. Yes, other then a solid piece of wood. Therefore, all metal and composite bats must be BBCOR certified, but the bats produced here at Cooperstown Bat do not need to be certified since they are all produced from a single piece of wood.
