Louisville Slugger TPS Catalyst Youth: FP12CY -11.5 Fastpitch
Average Customer Review
Great look solid bat, nice grip.
Bought this bat for my 9 year old daughter, but after taking a few swings it seemed 1-2 oz. heavier. The weight is more on the end than the sweet spot. Our league switched to USSSA from NSA and I was trying to find a replacement bat for the Eastern Reflex that she loved. I ended up returning the bat.
I was a little worried about purchasing this bat as there was little information and reviews I could find on it. I was interested in the bat due to the light weight and balance of the bat for my 8u player. Once recieved I looked it over really good seemed to be made with good quality. Had my daughter try it out during batting practice notice her swing speed had increased and a more natural swing of the bat was taking place. The bat had good pop on it nothing outrageous but for the price of the bat you can go wrong the bat is perfect for the smaller sized girls who need bat lenght but not the heavy weight.

My daughter is 12 years old, but small for her age. Would this bat be a good fit for her? She is 5' tall and weighs around 90 pounds, but she does play a lot of softball in the spring and summer, will the bat hold up?
The -11.5 should be perfect for your daughter It will be lighter for her so she can get the bat around faster. The durability with this bat has not been a problem so it should hold up for her just fine.
My 12 y.o. daughter uses the Catalyst FP12C2 (31") as her "good" bat (and loves it). I need a similar length & weight & feel (& much cheaper) practice bat for use with pitching machines -- would this be a reasonable bat to consider for that purpose?
The Louisville Slugger TPS Catalyst Youth: FP12CY -11.5 Fastpitch bat would be a decent choice. The biggest difference is that the FP12CY is going to be a youth model and it is also an alloy design versus the composite design of the FP12C2. With that being said, you are only paying $29.99 for a practice bat and you are saving the life span of her game bat.
Is this a composite?
No, the Louisville Slugger TPS Catalyst Youth: FP12CY -11.5 Fastpitch bat is a one-piece alloy design. The TPS Catalyst is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF.
In 1842, J. Frederick Hillerich emigrated with his family from Baden-Baden, Germany to the United States. Eight years before, the 1834 Book of Sports had made its debut as the nation's first publication covering baseball. But when he arrived in Baltimore, J. Frederick Hillerich would never have dreamed of the future impact his family would have on America's favorite pastime. Here's a short video promo from Louisville Slugger. After a short while, the Hillerichs moved to Louisville, where J. Fred started a woodworking shop in 1856. Two of his sons, Adam and John Andrew "Bud" were bo.... read more
