The Vexxum is no longer the little brother to the Voodoo; it’s all grown up and ready to mash! It features an X10 Alloy barrel construction that has been fine-tuned and shaped to have the thinnest barrel wall possible. A thinner barrel keeps the weight down and allows DeMarini to expand the Vexxum’s sweet spot for increased performance. The handle is made of C6 composite which uses a wide-weave pattern to create an incredible trampoline effect and absorbs vibration. The Vexxum is available in a -12 Youth model and -5 and -10 Senior League models.
Hitters looking for a BBCOR option are in for a real treat with the all new Vexxum NVS. By employing a New Velocity System (NVS) barrel design, the NVS is now the lightest swinging alloy-barreled bat in the DeMarini lineup.The NVS has all the design features of the regular Vexxum with the addition of the new NVS barrel technology. The NVS design combines power and speed together by letting geometry do the work. The incredibly lightweight barrel has an explosive sweet spot that runs the length of the barrel. This creates a barrel with a low swing weight and powerful performance.

“I hit my first, second, third and now fourth homerun as of March 24th with my Easton Rival. The picture here is of my third one. The ball actually landed in the truck that is backed up in the picture. My Easton Rival has great pop and I love the balance and feel of it. I just started working with my new drop 5 Easton Rival that I hope to start using it soon.” – MR. STAR101

The Louisville Slugger brand has been synonymous with the game of baseball since they introduced their first wood bat 129 years ago. From Babe Ruth to Derek Jeter, the Louisville Slugger logo has left its mark on the great game of baseball. This season, tradition meets innovation as Louisville Slugger unveils an updated version of their classic logo.
The new Louisville Slugger logo is first being rolled out on their newest M9 and MLB Prime models which will feature harder wood for top of the line performance. The new wood drying and processing methods result in a harder wood that will not only be higher performing, but also more durable. Here are a few of the MLB’s best players who will continue to make their own mark with the new Louisville Slugger logo.

The Voodoo has always been one of the hottest bats in DeMarini’s lineup. But this year, DeMarini kicks the power up a notch with the updated 2014 Voodoo Paradox.
The Voodoo Paradox has the familiar two-piece hybrid design, but DeMarini fine-tuned the barrel walls to be the thinnest and lightest on the market. This tweak allowed the designers to create a sweet spot bigger than anything seen on previous Voodoo models. DeMarini also uses their new Paradox composite material to design a stiffer handle than in year’s past, helping to increase the Voodoo Paradox’s response. The newly designed RCK knob rests comfortably at the base of your hand, and the new Ion V end cap is designed to eliminate barrel vibration and transfer energy back into the sweet spot.
For high school and collegiate ballplayers, DeMarini has altered the placement of their Taper Ring Technology. By placing the ring deeper in the taper, the designers were able to stay within BBCOR standards and still keep the barrel walls thin and the swing-weight low. The Voodoo Paradox is available in BBCOR, Senior League -9 and -5 and a -13 Youth.

In honor of the 2013 MLB Opening Day, we want to show you what the big leaguers will be using when they take the field. Here are a few players who are looking to continue their All-Star caliber level of play.
Most of you reading this article have fond memories of Opening Day. Everytime I think of Opening Day, there’s one image that I’m sure a lot of you share. I’m walking up the concourse in slow motion, and before me unfolds a scene out of a hollywood movie: the sights, sounds and smells of the stadium and field overload my senses. The players are warming up while the grounds crew puts the final touches on the field that looks too immaculate to be real. Experiences like this spark dreams within a lot of young players. After all, Big League dreams start on Little League fields across the world.
Opening Day is a fresh start for all 30 teams and the fans that support them. The San Francisco Giants look to defend their championship, while the other 29 teams fight to knock them off their throne. The battle for the World Series Championship begins Sunday March 31st followed by official opening day on April 1st. Here is a look at the opening day matchups:
The fastpitch season is upon us, and we want you to be as prepared as possible. Not only with the best fastpitch bats on the market, but also with helpful tips to aid you this season and beyond. With that in mind, we wanted to share a few more tips from two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Michele Smith.
The theme of Michele’s videos is quickness and speed. It’s widely accepted in the fastpitch softball and baseball communities that quick hands and a quick bat are key components in a successful hitters swing. Bat speed results in more power and the ability to hit for a higher average. Quick hands also enable you to sit back and see the pitch longer which helps you become a more patient hitter.
In this first video, Michele discusses the best way to grip your bat in order to increase your bat speed.
In the second video, Michele discusses the importance of developing a short/quick swing and shows you the ideal swing path.
