Can this bat be used in 5/6 year old single A coach pitch Dixie Youth baseball?
You probably could use this for coach pitch since is has the USA stamp of approval on it, we would not recommend using it as it is designed to hit stationary balls. Hitting pitched balls will result in a high chance of durability concerns. I would also check with your coach or league commissioner for clarification on the bat rules.
My son is 7 years old and is playing coach pitch baseball. he has a 27 inch, -10, 2 1/4" inch barrel bat that he's using but he's not able to swing it quick enough for consistent contact, should I go with this bat? The coaches under hand pitch to the kids.
You could go with this bat, but you run a higher risk of durability issues. Tee ball bats are designed to hit stationary baseballs, so any velocity behind it (even underhand) can cause durability issues faster than normal.
Can this bat be used in Cal Ripken 6U t-ball leagues in 2018?
Yes, it has the USA Baseball certification stamp so it will be legal for Cal Ripken 2018.
Can you use this Quatro Tee Ball bat in machine pitch? I've heard it will dent with real baseball out of a machine.
The 2018 Rawlings Quatro -11 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB8Q11 is designed to only hit balls off a tee, so hitting pitched balls at any speed would damage the bat rather quickly.
How much over listed weight is this one?
The 2018 Rawlings Quatro -11 USA Tee Ball Bat: TB8Q11 weighs about half an ounce heavier than the listed weight.
I have a very small 6 year old that is going into coach pitch. I need a bat no longer than 26 inches. Will this work?
If your player has to use a bat with the new USABat certification, then there unfortunately will not be any bats at the 26" length specifically meant for use in coach pitch. All USABats at the 26" length will be tee ball bats like this 2018 Rawlings Quatro -11 USA Tee Ball Bat (TB8Q11). If you wanted a bat meant for coach pitch specifically, you will have to look to a bat with 27" length. If you wanted to use this bat for coach pitch, you could certainly do so. However, if the balls being used were harder and were being thrown overhand by the coach, there would be a decent risk of the tee ball bat cracking.
