Pros: light pop good price for composite
2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB18GX135
My son is big for his age, he is 5 yrs old, 4ft 2in and weighs 90lbs
Pros: light pop good price for composite
Pros: light strong and great pop
Cons: the whole team wants to use this bat.
Pros: The pop on this bat is great. My son has no vibration issues and he loves his new bat.
Cons: The duribility on this bat is average at best but it is a $50 bat so if I can get an offseason of work and a full season I will be pleased.
Pros: My son is big for his age, he is 5 yrs old, 4ft 2in and weighs 90lbs. Even though they suggest that you do not hit hard balls with this bat, my son does all of the time at the batting cage. He will be using this bat this coming Spring. He used the Easton Mako T-ball bat this past Spring and the Ghost during the Fall. I could not tell any difference between the two. This is a great t-ball bat but you must remember this is only t-ball. I also ordered the bat from this site.
Cons: Grip material is extremely thin.
Pros: light weight
Cons: my son doesnâ€™t even want to use this bat because of the vibration hurting his arms. It also wonâ€™t allow him to hit as far as he usually can. We will be sticking to his older bat
Pros: Super light bat my 4 year old can swing easily
Pros: none my son used it once and it cracked !
Cons: This bat breaks after one use it cracks open because its too thin .
Got a question about the 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB18GX135 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
I hear "it won't last long" or "you'll run into durability issues" when referencing the question of "can this bat be used for coach pitch/machine pitch leagues?" Are you saying it won't last an entire season? I'm fine with throwing it away after one season, but obviously need it to last for a rec league season length. The smallest bat I can find recommended for coach pitch/machine pitch is 27/17, and thats way too big for my 6 year old (both length and weight). Are there any other options?
Unfortunately it seems manufacturers just haven't made bats smaller than 27" for the USA standard very common. We wouldn't be able to definitively say how long a tee ball bat would last in coach pitch, since it is designed to hit stationary baseballs. Personally I think the new USA standard somewhat helps in this situation, as the walls of the bats under this standard will be thicker than the old USSSA standard, so that would help with durability.
I am from Venezuela, and in our league the coach pitches. My son is 5 years old, and I want a 26" or 27" bat with very good sweet spot and very good pop. We don't have any limitation in our league. I want to buy the Easton Ghost, but I read that it is only for use with the tee.
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB18GX135 is only designed to hit ball off a tee, so it would not last long in coach pitch. A coach pitch bat I would suggest would be the 2016 Easton S3 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: JBB16S310.
Can this bat withstand level 5 coach pitch balls from a manual pitching machine?
We do not recommend using any tee ball bat for anything more than hitting off a tee. Therefore, using the 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB18GX135 for machine pitch is not recommended as you will certainly run into durability issues down the line. I would recommend checking out the 2018 Easton S450 -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat: YSB18S450 if you are looking for a lightweight USA bat to use for machine pitch.
For tee ball, would the bat have better pop with a composite or aluminum barrel?
At the tee ball level, differences between composite bats like this 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat (TB18GX135) and aluminum bats are very slight. Choosing between these materials at the tee ball level is going to come down to player preference.
My 8 year old daughter plays baseball. She's only 3'9". Is this bat acceptable for Little League?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB18GX135 does feature the USA stamp but would only be good for use in tee ball leagues. A better option to use for an 8 year old would be the 2018 Easton S450 -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat: YSB18S450.
Every photo I see of this bat does not show the new "USA" stamp. Is there a USA stamp on this bat?
Yes, the 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB18GX135 does feature the USA Baseball certification stamp on the bat. It is located in white font just above the grip tape on the handle.
I wanted to buy my little boy the MAKO, but need the new USA symbol on it. Will Easton have a MAKO come out pretty soon?
For the 2018 release of bats, Easton is moving away from the MAKO name. The bat that has replaced the MAKO tee ball bat with the 1-piece, all-composite build is this Ghost X tee ball bat. Overall, if you were looking to replace a MAKO with a 2018 USA bat, this would be the best replacement.
Is there a 2 5/8 Easton bat that is comparable to this?
Sadly, there will be no 2 5/8", USA rated baseball bat that will also feature a -13.5" length-to-weight ratio like this 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat (TB18GX135).
My son is 5 years old and plays in Dixie youth 5/6 year coach pitch. They do not use a tee. My son is 3 ft 8 in and weighs 43 pounds so he is not tall enough to use a 27 inch bat yet. Is this bat legal in 5/6 coach pitch Dixie youth?
Previous Dixie rules would indicate that the 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB18GX135 would be legal for use in Dixie youth for the 5/6 year age division of coach pitch. As a precaution though, we would recommend checking with coaches and/or league officials to verify.
Grandson uses Mako Beast how does this Ghost compare. He loves his bat but its discontinued.
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB18GX135 is going to be the same bat as the Mako, just the newest version of it. It features the same design as the Mako.
Is this bat ok for Pony Shetland division? They get three pitches off pitching machine and if they don't hit they then use the tee.
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB18GX135 will be legal for use in Pony for 2018 as this bat will have the USA stamp on it. As far as using the bat to hit off the pitching machine, this bat is designed best for tee ball use only. Depending on the pitching machine speed and the balls that are being used it could serve both purposes and certainly be legal.
How can this bat be used?
This 2018 Easton Ghost X -13.5 USA Tee Ball Bat (TB18GX135) should really only be used to hit stationary balls off of a tee. I would not recommend hitting any balls that are being thrown with this bat (unless those baseballs are ones with a softer feel to them (i.e. Easton Incrediballs]).
