Pros:  This is the most underrated Slugger. Everyone is talking about the Omaha or the Prime but this bat is awesome! My son hits the ball further than ever before and never complains about vibration with the Catalyst.

Cons:  The grip started to unravel after about three practices but we replaced with a Lizard Skin Grip and all is well.

My understanding from everything I've seen so far with this bat, that it is a senior league bat approved for kid pitch up to 12U? Just want to make sure because my son is a smaller 12u player so the drop 12 would be very beneficial for him and those bats are usually jr big barrels.

Yes, the 2017 Louisville Slugger Catalyst Senior League Baseball Bat (SLCT172) is going to a Senior League bat and should work for your 12U player. But before we can promise that the bat would be legal for play in his league we would have to know what league you son plays in. Every leagues rules are a little bit different.

Louisville Slugger is the Official Bat of Major League Baseball and the #1 name in baseball since the earliest days of the sport. In many ways, the storied 130+ year history of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat began in the talented hands of 17-year-old John A. "Bud" Hillerich.
