On August 10, 2022 we were notified by the NCAA that the Stinger Missile 2 - 33" (only this size) would be decertified and banned from use in games at the collegiate level. This is only for the 33" 30oz model, all other sizes are still certified. As always, it is our mission at Stinger Sports to make baseball more affordable by creating products with top performance at reasonable prices. When creating the Missile 2, we aimed to create a bat with optimal performance and close as possible to the .500 BBCOR limit. Unfortunately, there were a few 33" bats in our production that tested barely above this limit resulting in this decision by the NCAA to decertify the 33" model. We are committed to making this right for all of our valued customers by offering a full replacement credit for qualified purchases. We assure you that we are working diligently to get this resolved and get a top performing Stinger Bat back in your hands as soon as possible.
