Can you confirm the 24" bat has a BPF rating of 1.20? The photos are for the 26" bat and I have not found a 24" bat that complies with Little League Bat Rule 1.10, which states that softball bats must be 1.20 BPF. All 24" bats that I have found are 1.15 BPF.

Should a bat for girls playing Coach Pitch be top heavy or balanced?
Asked by pokey on Apr 29, 2013
The Louisville Slugger TPS Catalyst Youth: FP12CY -12.5 Fastpitch bat features a balanced swing weight and is designed for players considered to be contact hitters. The balanced swing weight will allow the player to generate more bat speed than they could with a bat with an end loaded swing weight. At that age, generating bat speed would be the highest priority.
