Please be advised of the following rule change for NSA Canada for 2013. The base lines for all divisions, levels and genders shall be 70 feet. This rule will apply to all NSA Canada nationally sanctioned events and is in effect immediately.
It has come to my attention that there is some question as to which bats are legal for play this year. Please see examples of the stamps required for this BPF 1.20 standard available on this website. All bats must display at least one of these stamps to be legal for play as well as meeting all the other requirements of Rule 3, Section 1. Please note that a player is not ejected for using an illegal bat. Rule 3, Section 1. The use of an altered bat results in an ejection of the player that uses the bat in question. Rule 1, Section 1.
A flare cone makes a bat altered. If the umpire cannot hold the bat between 2 fingers by the knob without it falling then this is a flare grip and the bat is considered altered for purposes of Rule 1, Section 1.
Thank you for your attention to these matters.

NSA Canada is committed to addressing the issue of player classification and tournament seating. We also acknowledge that if a person or
persons wants to elude the system they will. Our new online player carding system will not be perfect but it will be a strong starting
point at addressing these concerns.
NSA will continue to update and address any issues that may arise during enforcement of this new policy.
