This CAT 9 drop 5 bat continues the excellence that was started by the original Marucci CAT 5 so many years back! It still features the classic one-piece, all-alloy design!
The big advancement from the CAT bats of the past to this CAT 9 is the new AZR Alloy Material. What makes the AZR alloy unique is that it goes through a 3-stage thermal treatment process. After that process is completed, Marucci is left with an aluminum material that (1) has more feel (2) has more forgiveness and (3) performs better.
That new alloy material is part of the one-piece, all-alloy design that is painted in a black colorway with red & silver graphics!
