Expect some equipment rule changes for the upcoming 2019 softball season to reduce the risk of injury.
The changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Association’s softball rules committee were approved by the NFHS board of directors.
Some of the rule changes include permitting an eye shield to be worn attached to the face and head that is clear with no tint. Another rule permits a softball bat to have an adjustable knob provided the knob is permanently fastened by the manufacturer.
