|Today, we’ll be looking at the most popular baseball bats of August from each category: BBCOR, Senior League, Youth and Junior Big Barrel.|
|The 2014 Easton Mako BBCOR is the latest and greatest addition to Easton’s lineup. The bat’s two-piece composite design features Easton’s ConneXion™ technology, giving the Mako optimized energy transfer and reduced vibration for a smooth feel on contact. Easton’s new Thermo Composite Technology (TCT) is engineered to provide top-notch players with unmatched bat speed and a massive sweet spot. While the Mako features an extended barrel like the Easton XL Series, it also features an overall balanced feel like the Easton S Series - making it perfect for both power and contact hitters.
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Senior League is also new for 2014. It is a two-piece bat with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The X10 Alloy utilized to make the barrel and C6 Composite handle combine to give the Vexxum the largest possible hitting surface. The C6 Composite material in the handle features a wider weave, giving the bat more flex and a greater trampoline effect upon contact. The Vexxum is one of the most balanced bats on the market and is ideal for players looking to improve their swing speed. This model comes in a -10 length to weight ratio, has a 2 ⅝” barrel and features the new USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp.
|Given the fact that the Little League World Series takes place in August, it is no surprise that our most popular Youth bat is the 2014 Easton Mako Youth. The Youth model of the Mako is similar to the BBCOR model in that it is a two-piece fully composite bat that features Easton’s ConneXion™ technology and Thermo Composite Technology (TCT). This bat comes in a -11 length to weight ratio and features a 2 ¼” barrel. Its low M.O.I. translates into even quicker swing speeds. It is approved for play in Little League, Babe Ruth, Dixie, Pony, AABC and features the new USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp.|
Junior Big Barrel
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Junior Big Barrel is a two-piece bat that combines an X10 Alloy barrel with a C6 Composite handle. The X10 Alloy used on the barrel is finely-tuned and shaped to create the thinnest possible walls, keeping the weight of the bat down and opening up the sweet spot. The C6 Composite handle works in unison with the alloy barrel and is specifically tailored for the single wall construction of the Vexxum. This bat comes in a -10.5 length to weight ratio, has a 2 ¾” barrel, and features the new USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp.
