Marucci CAT 9 Composite Pastime -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCCP910A
If you're purchasing for a young patriot, then definitely consider this Cat 9 Composite Pastime drop 10 bat!
Marucci has committed to building a high-quality composite baseball bat! It all starts with their MDX Composite barrel material that is composed of composite fibers laid in many different directions. By laying the fibers in multiple directions, Marucci is able to make the MDX composite extremely responsive.
For this two-piece bat, they attach the MDX composite barrel to the composite handle by way of the Outer Locking System (OLS) connector piece. This OLS piece creates a bigger and more pronounced connection point on this Cat 9 Composite bat, but it should allow for a stiffer feel at contact due to it locking the handle and barrel together from the outside in. As well, this connector piece will prevent most vibrations from getting down to a player's hands.
This USSSA 1.15 bat will feature a little bit of heft in the barrel which will be awesome for a batter that has started to show some power in their swing. That extra bit of end-load might be able to provide the pop needed to get baseballs flying over outfield fences.
*****This bat will not be legal for use in league or sanctioned play once rolled or shaved
