We suggest a 29" 17.5 oz bat in the JNX11C NXT Freak. The JNX11C is a very good choice, has a very balanced feel and very good pop.

Junior Big Barrel bats have thinner walls and are only intended to be used in coach pitch. Using the JNX11C with hardcore baseballs will question the durability.
Can the JNX11C be used for kid pitch or just coach pitch?
Junior Big Barrel bats are designed for coach pitch leagues. Please check out our "Youth Big Barrel", or "Youth" section for kid pitch bats.
