2018 CF Zen (-10) 2 ¾” (WTDXCBZ-18)
Date Issued: May 5, 2018
The 2018 CF Zen (-10) 2 ¾” (WTDXCBZ-18) bat was approved in all lengths by USSSA in mid-2017 using the testing protocol existing in mid-2017. DeMarini produced and delivered the 2018 CF Zen (-10) 2 ¾” bat beginning in the Fall of 2017. In the following months, USSSA made slight, but significant changes to its testing protocol. When re-tested under the new 2018 testing protocol, certain sizes were suspended from USSSA play as of April 12th, 2018. However, now, as of May 4th, 2018, all sizes of the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen CBZ 2 ¾” (-10) have been issued a provisional suspension and are currently disallowed for USSSA play.
While we review the ruling with USSSA, we have instituted a replacement program on the 2018 CF Zen (-10) 2 ¾” (WTDXCBZ-18) bat. Details about our replacement program are available at www.demarini.com/en-us/2018-cf-zen-update.
However, there are leagues and/or tournaments that are not directly or indirectly affiliated with the USSSA that have approved the 2018 CF Zen (-10) 2 ¾” (WTDXCBZ-18) bat for league or tournament play (“Non-USSSA Leagues”).
For those Non-USSSA Leagues, Wilson wishes to provide the following indemnity for as long as this Policy remains published on this website:
Respecting any bodily injury claim caused by a baseball batted by a 2018 CF Zen (-10) 2 ¾” (WTDXCBZ-18) bat in a Non-USSSA League game occuring on or after the date listed above (an “Indemnified Claim”), Wilson Sporting Goods Co. (“Wilson”) agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend the Non-USSSA League and its officers, directors, employees and agents (each, an “Indemnified Party”; collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, expenses, judgments, awards, petitions, demands or liabilities of any type, joint or several related to such Indemnified Claim.
An Indemnified Party shall provide Wilson with timely written notice of any Indemnified Claims for which the Indemnified Party seeks indemnification from Wilson (but in any event within 30 days of the receipt of such Indemnified Claim by the Indemnified Party). The Indemnified Party seeking indemnification from Wilson shall tender the entire defense of any such Indemnified Claims to Wilson for Wilson to defend, settle, or otherwise adjudicate in Wilson’s reasonable discretion with counsel reasonably acceptable to such Indemnified Parties.
Wilson may terminate this Policy as of a future date, which date would then be indicated on this Policy as the termination date. Or, Wilson may terminate this Policy as of a future date when this Policy is removed (upon 10 days’ notice) from this website. Any termination shall not affect the indemnification rights related to any bodily injuries that occurred and that were subject to this indemnity prior to the termination date.
