This bat should hold up fine for machine pitch, as it is designed for coach pitch and machine pitch. Marucci did not provide us with a maximum pitch speed, but generally 40-45 mph seems to be about the max range from what I've heard. You could try contacting Marucci directly for more information.

Marucci baseball bats continue to be used by players at all levels of the game, and for good reason. For the 2018 season, the F5 series is ready to take the nation by storm. When Marucci released the famous CAT series, they named it after hurricane categories due to the sheer strength of their AZ4X aluminum alloy. Now, Marucci has stuck with the weather references and named this model after another one of nature's most violent storms: an F5 tornado. They did so because of the F5 baseball bats ability to wreak havoc on a field. As a one-piece aluminum alloy construction, this model delivers a traditional, consistent feel with a balanced swing weight for better control through the zone. Inside of the barrel, Marucci utilizes a multi-variable wall design that creates a massive sweet spot with unprecedented durability. They have also applied their proven Ring-free barrel technology that maximizes performance at the plate while guaranteeing zero dead spots. On the other end, a custom micro-perforated soft touch grip decreases negative impact feedback and increases overall comfort. Marucci: Honor The Game!
