Pros:  Exceptional bat! Very well balanced top to bottom with solid feel and a generous sweet spot. Feels true to a drop 5 weight. Used by my 12 year old for pre-season BP and wood bat tournaments.

Pros:  Very impressed with this bat. My son is only 7 and I was worried it would be heavy. This bat is very balanced and he has no difficulty swinging this bat. He loves this bat and it has great pop. Really surprised how well this bat performs. We will see how long it lasts. If it continues to perform I will buy another.

Cons:  Petty but cosmetic. Wish we could have gotten it engraved for him or get a natural wood color.

Pros:  Bat helped me bat .320+, and it was used by several kids on my team. I used this throughout a travel baseball season, and it didn't disappoint. It felt pretty good in my hands, every game in a 20+ game season. The black paint job looked slick out of the box.

Cons:  The bat's paint job got a little chipped over the season, but that's really it.

Pros:  Good balance, nice finish. Pretty decent pop for wood bat

Cons:  I know its a wood bat and basically can brake at any time. But man only lasted around 10 games total. Was originally bought for BP for which it served its purpose. But had to use it in a wood bat game over weekend, and first jam job bat cracked. Finish is pretty but gets dinged up quick and often. Bat only lasted 3 months total with BP and about 10 actual games, expect more for 70$. Bamboo wood purchased still going strong approaching 2 years of hard use, and was only 50$

Pros:  Being new to the whole "wood bat" leagues for the kids as they do here in New York, i saw a couple of kids use this bat so i figured that i would buy one for my son (12) and my daughter (9). The first couple of games both kids consistently hit line drives all over the field. Very nice pop (if you want to say a wood bat has pop anyway).

Cons:  After a week or so, my daughter gets up to bat and cracks the bat in half and she is only 9. Later that day, i go to my sons game and the same thing happens, he cracks his bat in half. Now, i would semi expect for him to break a bat or two, but my daughter??? Maybe it was a bat batch of wood.

Cons:  Broke after 2nd game on what seemed to be a solid hit snapped it between his hands. I believe there was a genuine defect with the particular bat as my boys are ages 10 and 11. However Justbats replaced it free of charge due to it being so new. They were extremely helpful and nice about it.

Pros:  The Marucci bats have a great solid feel when you hit the baseball. The 30" Marucci bat is better handled by the bigger/stronger 12 year olds.

Cons:  My son is a small 12 year old and the 30" bat seems to be a bit too long and heavy for him. He's sticking with the 29" Marucci for now until he grows a little bigger and stronger in the near future.

Is this Bat USSSA Legal and if so where can i find this information?

The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB does not feature a USSSA stamp, but since it is made of one piece of wood and no composite materials, it would be legal in most youth leagues.

Logan Expert

How durable is this bat?

The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB is a maple bat. These bats are less prone to flaking as is common with a maple bat compared to an ash. Unfortunately, there is no way of telling how long a wood bat can last. It can last as little as one swing or an infinite amount essentially; it all comes down to a player's ability to consistently hit the ball on the barrel. This bat does come with a 30 day warranty, which most youth players will break their wood bats within that time frame, so if/when the bat breaks one could potentially get it replaced by contacting Marucci.

My son is 10 and uses a 30/18. What would be the best size for him? Also, what is the barrel size on this?

The barrel size on the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB is 2 1/4". As for the right size to get a player that is currently using a 30/18, we would recommend getting this bat in a 28 inch model as this bat will be much heavier than his current bat (-5 length to weight ratio).

Is it this model BBCOR certified? Also, can you use it in Little League baseball?

The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: (CU26YB) will not be BBCOR certified. This model will be more similar to the youth bats that are used for play in little league. If you are using this in an all wood league, this will be legal because it incorporates the traditional maple wood material in the barrel of the bat.

My 8 year old currently uses a Louisville Slugger Maple wood that is 28 inches. He gets around on it just fine but could use some better bat speed in the game. He tried a teammate's 29 inch Marucci and said it felt lighter to swing. Is the CU26 the better model for a kid that age because of the thinner handle than the other youth models?

The thin handle on the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (CU26YB) allows for a light swing weight and a well balanced feel that can help lead to better bat speed. This can be beneficial for youth hitters who need added speed through the zone.

My son is six years old and weighs 50 lbs. Would you recommend this bat for him? If you would, in what size?

The best way to determine the correct bat size for a player is by their height and weight. However, a 6 year old is typically swinging a 27" bat. The best option would be to go with a 27" model in the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (CU26YB). The CU26YB has a -5 length to weight ratio and it can be fairly heavy for a 6 year old. The Viper Ultralight Birch Wood Youth Baseball Bat (VLLUL) in a 28" model is another option because of its lighter weight.

Would the CU26 be good for a smaller hitter (66 pounds, 4'6'') who is working on more contact and hits it pretty hard to very hard almost all the time?

The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (CU26YB) would be great for a youth hitter at that size. The barrel size and swing weight will help a contact and a power hitter's swing.

Why would we use a wooden youth bat? Just curious as I haven't seen wooden bats used by kids in 35 years. Do the wood bats perform as well as composite or aluminum?

The composite or alloy models would still offer slightly more performance in the Bat Performance Factor test than a wood bat. There are many Youth Wood Bat Tournaments held around the country, and this Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Bat (CU26YB) Youth bat would be a very high quality option for those players. Wood bats are also very popular choices for practice use, as well.

Description for Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB
The Marucci Bat Company™ takes pride in turning top quality wooden baseball bats in the same tradition and precise technique of the earliest bat companies. Every Marucci Bat™ is cut, calibrated, balanced, buffed and lacquered by hand. The Marucci Bat Company™ uses top grade Maple billets cut from selected, naturally grown trees in Pennsylvania forests. This selection process insures the highest possible grade of wood for each bat. The Marucci Bat Company™ bats are 100 percent handmade or turned in small batches from an original design, then finished and detailed by hand. Each model is made to exacting specifications maximizing balance and ease of handling. The Marucci Bat Company™ uses an Ultra Penetrating Stain that provides the best possible finish for your next Marucci Bat. Most impressive is the Bone Rubbing technique that The Marucci Bat Company™ uses. "Boning" bats began in the earliest days of baseball with players like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. These Hall-of-Famers would spend hours in their dugouts rubbing their bats with old cow femur bones. Bone Rubbing closes the wood`s pores, compressing it and making it harder. Marucci uses the same technique on their bats, rubbing before the finish is applied to seal and harden the wood. Just another example of how Marucci takes the same pride in their bats as our baseball heroes once did. Experience the excellence of a Marucci Bat. Free Shipping!
