Is this bat too small for my 11U, 4'8", 90 lb. player?
The Easton V12: BV22 Junior Big Barrel is a coach pitch bat and is not designed for kid pitch or machine pitch leagues.
I've got an 8 yr old 52" 52 lbs. Looking for a recommendation on size/weight and brand of big barrel bat for USSSA coach pitch play.
The Easton V12: BV22 Junior Big Barrel is an excellent bat, however it is a bit too short. We recommend the 2013 Easton XL3: JBB13X3 Junior Big Barrel in a 28" 18 oz.
My son plays 10u and 11u travel ball. He's 10 years old and a very stocky guy weighing 95 lbs., usually a beast up at bat. He is swinging a 29" 19oz. I am trying to find him a great bat for at low cost if possible. Which bat do you think would be better for him?
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: SL136 Senior League will be the cheapest 29" 19oz. bat on the website, but for the price it is a great bat.
My son is 52 pounds and right under 4 ft tall. He currently uses a 26/16 standard barrel Easton bat. Do you think this bat would be a good step up for him in coach pitch this year? If not which bat would you recommend? Thanks.
The Easton V12: BV22 Junior Big Barrel is a great choice for your son. Based on his height and weight we recommend using a 27" 17 oz. bat.

My child has done very well with this bat, but it's time to upgrade/update. He is now playing kid pitch. What bat would you recommend?
