I see this bat does not have the ASA stamp. Does this mean it does not meet their safety standards?
You're correct in that this 2014 Easton B1.0 Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SP14B1) will not feature an ASA performance certification mark. Typically, neither ASA or USSSA leagues will allow bats only certified for the other organization to be used (ie an ASA league typically won't let you use a bat only certified for USSSA and not ASA).

The 2014 Easton B1.0 Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SP14B1) would be perfect. The swing weight will be very balanced and have a light weight feel. At your size, I would get the 26 oz. model to keep your bat speeds very high.
