What does an all conference award mean in high school softball?
Every high school is put into a conference that they play in through out the season, for example i went to canton high school and we played in the WLAA conference. At the end of the regular season (the games played before playoffs begin) all the head coaches of the schools in your conference get together and pick the best players from every school and form an "all conference team"
There is no limit to the drop; that only applies to baseball. The only requirement for a softball bat to be used in high school softball is that it must be ASA (Amateur Softball Association) approved and so marked on the bat. The current marking is the phrase ASA 2004 inside the outline of a home plate.
