Wisconsin-Based Maple Bat Company, RockBats, Cheers for the New 2009 Bat Supplier Regulations Announced by Major League Baseball

Technologies that RockBats has been promoting for maple bats since 2004 are finally being realized. The independent research conducted by the USDA Forest Service has resulted in changes to the 2009 MLB Bat Supplier Regulations. Those changes include the recommendation to players that maple bats be oriented for face-grain ball contact, which is a stronger orientation for wood baseball bats. This Face-ORiented Contact is what RockBats trademarked as FORCE Technology(TM) in 2006. - December 17, 2008
