I heard next year all travel teams must have a USSSA bat. Are all USSSA bats big barrel?
Are you referring to USA bats? All USSSA bats will be either 2 5/8" or 2 3/4" barrel diameter models. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBRR will feature a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
I have a 14-year-old son playing in Babe Ruth league and he needs a USA bat. Wondering if a 32"/33", drop eight would be good for a tall 14-year-old kid?
Yes, that should work just fine. We generally recommend a -8 or a -5 for 13-14 year olds since they will have to use a BBCOR -3 model in the next year or two.
My son is 10 years old, 5'1" and 112 lbs. Right now he swings a 31 in. drop 10 bat. Do you think the drop 8 CF Zen would be too heavy?
It's difficult for us to comment on the right weight of a bat for a player, since each player can vary significantly. Typically, players at that age swing a -10 size, and the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBRR feels slightly end loaded. With that being said, the -8 may be a bit heavy for your player, but that would be a better question for his coach to answer.
What does re-tooled mean?
The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBRR was too power to standards and had to be sent back to DeMarini. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBRR is going to be the legal, less powerful bat
Is this bat end loaded?
The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBRR is a balanced bat.
My son is on a Babe Ruth All Star team and they said this bat is illegal. When I bought this I was told we can't use; spent a lot money for nothing. If you have any paperwork stating if its approved please do so.
The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBRR is not legal for use in Babe Ruth as this bat does not feature a -3 length to weight ratio (these are always BBCOR models).

Is this a BBCOR bat?

(1) I thought it had to be -5 not -8 to be legal (13U USSSA)? (1) What's shipping time?
