What is the weight -8 or 23 oz?
The 2018 Easton S450 -8 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S4508 features a -8 length to weight ratio. This means that is 30 inches in length will have a listed weight of 22 ounces. This bat will have a true weight of 1.6 ounces heavier than listed weight.
My boy used a 30" Easton Flying Tiger Aluminum Bat last year. This year, with the new little league rules, we need to get a new bat. He is 5 ft 4 inches tall, weighs 135 lbs, and will be 11 at the end of March. According to the size chart, he should be in a 32 inch bat, but that seems like too much stick for him. Looking for a solid recommendation on size for him.
I would probably recommend a 31" length of bat if 32" feels like a lot. The size charts and recommendations are mostly meant to get people in the ballpark of what size they should use, and should not be take as exact guidelines, as they are always other factors besides height and weight that play into what length someone should use. Other examples are how far they stand from the plate, if they ever choke up, strength, swing efficiency, etc.
I have a 12 year old that only weighs 81 lbs and is right at 5â€™ tall. I am trying to see if the 30â€ 22 oz would be the way to go with him.
For a player of your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Easton S450 -8 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S4508 in a 30/22 model assuming you feel he can handle the weight of the bat. This would be predicated more on the current bat he is using from a weight standpoint and how well he is handling it.
I have this bat in a 28"/20 oz. I have two 9 year olds. One weighs 93 lbs and the other 75 lbs, both 54 inches tall. Is this a good bat for them?
At the 28"/20 oz size, your model of this 2018 Easton S450 -8 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18S4508) might be a little short for both players. For the lighter weight player, our bat coach recommends a 29" bat. For the heavier player, we recommend a 30" bat. If you wanted a bat that will work for the two of them, you might look to a bat in the 30"/20 oz weight. The bat might be a little longer for your lighter-weight son, but I think that size of bat would present the best option to satisfy both players' needs.
Is this bat legal for little league 2018?
Yes, this bat carries the USA Baseball stamp that will be required for 2018 Little League.
Do you think this bat will be too heavy for an 8 year old? He is a big kid, about 4' and 75 pounds and can hit good.
The 2018 Easton S450 -8 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S4508 is better designed for a player between 12-13 years of age. For an 8 year old player, we would recommend looking more at a -10 length to weight ratio bat or possibly lighter if need be. Some options would include: 2018 Easton S250 -10 USA Youth Baseball Bat: YSB18S250, 2018 Easton S350 -11 USA Youth Baseball Bat: YSB18S350 and the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10.
