What makes BBCOR bats different?
Rather than measuring the ratio of the ball exit speed to pitch and bat speeds, BBCOR measures the trampoline effect of the bat. All BBCOR bats are required to be -3 or heavier”. As a result of being a standardized drop weight, the main difference with these models is their swing weights.
What is the difference between BBCOR and Usssa bats?

BBCOR bats are used at the high school and college level while USSSA bats are used at the youth level of travel baseball.

Are USSSA bats legal?
Does USSSA allow Wood Bats? Wood bats will be allowed at all levels of USSSA play. They can be a great choice for an inexpensive practice bat. However, much like the USA models, we do not recommend using a wood bat because you/your player will be at a significant disadvantage performance-wise.
Is USA or BBCOR better?
The answer is BBCOR not because they have better trampoline effect (they are in fact the same). But, BBCOR bats have much greater mass as they are required to be drop 3 while USA bats are not that heavy. Bat’s with a higher swing weight (as almost all BBCOR bats do compared to USA bats) will hit the ball father.
