In April 2017, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Wilson Sporting Goods for allegedly falsely advertising DeMarini brand baseball bats as meeting the United States Specialty Sports Association’s (USSSA’s) standards when they actually do not and cannot be used in leagues adhering to these regulations, such as local and national leagues and tournaments. (Sheeley et al v. Wislon Sporting Goods, Co.
, Case No. 17-cv-3076, N. D. IL.)
