Description for Rawlings Ash Wood Youth Baseball Bat: 242JAP
Looking for the best value on a youth wood bat? Look no further. The Rawlings 242J youth wood bat is made from strong and durable Northern White Ash. This bat features the 242 youth profile that gives it a new, thinner 7/8 inch handle and a 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter. The 242J comes with a natural, flame tempered finish to give it a classic, yet trendy look. This bat features a balanced and lightweight design, despite the non-cupped end, which actually gives the 242J a little added durability. With an approximate -7 to -9 length to weight ratio, this is one of the lighter-swinging wood bats you'll find on fields today. This bat is great for practice or games, and the benefits of using wood at an early age have been well documented. Inexpensive wood bats make great practice bats so that players can save their high dollar metal bat from unnecessary wear and tear. Team discounts are also available for this product when placing a bulk order. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro! This bat is approved for play in all major youth leagues. Free Shipping!
Customer Testimonial

Your customer service is by far one of the best on the web! Very happy would not be an accurate response - EXTREMELY HAPPY is how I would rate your customer service. Just is a professionally run website that delivers to its customers exactly what it needs to make a definitive purchase = nice photo's, complete details of the products, and customer reviews. One thing I would like to see more of is an increase in the number of customer reviews in your wood bat section. Wood bats are such a completely different bat from metal in all aspects including size and durability; more reviews would help with the decision making process.
