If you would like to use a bat that is not yet tested, call to schedule an appointment, 480-644-4196.  Any bat initially passing the compression test and then found to be altered (this includes tampering with the sticker) will result in a 10 year suspension for the user and owner of the bat. The magenta stickers will no longer be acceptable for the Fall and Winter 2019/20 seasons.
