New for the 2019 season! Take your game to the next level with the new and improved Marucci bat lineup. The CAT8 USSSA Baseball Bat features a maximized barrel length provides a wider sweet spot thanks to its longer surface area. One of the main differences from the CAT 7 is the new and improved AZ105 Alloy, the strongest aluminum on the Marucci bat line, allows for thinner barrel walls, a higher response rate and better durability. This Marucci bat's one-piece alloy design blends year-round durability with a traditional feel, and its ring-free barrel construction eliminates dead spots while improving flex. Its precision-balanced barrel provides a lower M.O.I. and balanced feels that makes it easy for any style of hitter to enjoy their personal best results. New for the 2019 lineup is the 2nd Generation AV2 Anti-Vibration Knob that features an upgraded, harmonic dampening system for better feel and less negative vibrational feedback Marucci Sports: Honor the Game.
This Marucci CAT 8 USSSA Big Barrel Bat features a -10 length to weight ratio, a 2 3/4 inch barrel, and the USSSA 1.15 BPF certification. The sting-free comfort knob is ergonomically-molded nylon engineered for best comfort and control, complemented by a micro-perforated soft-touch grip whose extra tack makes for a no-slip hold. Every element of the CAT8 craftsmanship comes together to earn a sterling reputation: these Marucci bats provide simply the best look and feel with the most "pop" off the bat and the least vibrational feedback, making an ideal fit for any age and strength of hitter.

add_circle_outlinePros: We just recieved the -10 2019 cat 8 this week. We actually bought a lizard skin grip for it. That will not be needed to be honest right now. The grip is extra tacky and perfect for my 9 year old hitter. His team currently uses poseys and cat 7s religiously. The bat sounds like it had just the extra pop that he has wanted. Watching him swing it over and over and hit after hit it seems to be the better version of the cat 7. He claims to have less vibration compared to the 7. We are about 100-125 pitches in on it so far and not 1 dent so far. This weekend will be the true test for the upcoming tournaments. He was switching from the cat 7 to the Rawlings quatro composite. He has since dropped the quatro and has focused on hitting with this bat exclusively. Great bat and great price that doesn't dissapoint.
add_circle_outlinePros: Bought the 29/19 for my son. I also have the CAT 7 29/19, which is a great bat! The CAT 8 has a more gradual taper giving it more surface area. The CAT 8 is just a tad bit heavier feeling than the CAT 7, but you would have to really be trying to notice the difference to tell. We Love the barrel! As far as size and taper, it fits between the old green Hex bat and the CAT 7. The sweet spot is insane! Really big sweet spot. Ball speed feels about the same as the CAT 7, but with a larger sweet spot. The bat looks good and should be durable.
add_circle_outlinePros: Awesome bat!!! My son had 2018 Demarini CF-Zen and this Cat 8 has so much more pop. He had hit a home run with his buddies a Cat 7 so we bought him this Cat 8 and has just as good pop if not better than the Cat 7. Everyone on his team uses his bat.
add_circle_outlinePros: Got a 29/19 drop 10 Cat 8 alloy for the grandson. Used first day in travel ball practice. Good pop and distance right out of the wrapper. No complaints of any sting. All the kids like the look and results. Buy it!
add_circle_outlinePros: Bought a 29/19 for the grandson and he loves it. Really good pop and distance with his first few swings. We like the sound when the ball hits the bat. NO complaints of vibration after 2 weeks of practice! Worth the price. Get one!
remove_circle_outlineCons: All the kids on the team like it and want to use it.
add_circle_outlinePros: So, I am not one to spend much time on a computer, but I do feel that I owe the Dad's out there who are looking for the right bat that enhances your son's ability to reach his top performance. Well Dads, search no further....this is the bat that will take your son to the next level.
We have been Marucci loyalists for the past 3 years. We have put away the Eastons, and the Louisvilles since he started swinging his 18/28 Hex Alloy bat thru his 8U, 9U, and 10U seasons (Great Bat!). Just last weekend, we took it out to the ballpark to hit balls to see if he can put it over the outfield fence. He was line driving them, but either one hop or two hops into the fence.
Well, it was now time for a new bat to kick off the 11U season.I read the reviews on Just Bats...and ordered the 19/29 Cat 8. Ordered it and we hit the field this Saturday morning. I pitched first two pitches, both one-hop over the fence. The third - he went YARD!!!! We have officially retired his Hex Alloy.
remove_circle_outlineCons: NONE - CAT 8 ROCKS...looking forward to the fall season!!!
AFTER OUR RESARCH...THE WINNER IS
add_circle_outlinePros: For the last 3 yrs we have watched kids hit with bats and have looked at reviews and have bought and played with Combat Vigor, Rawlings Velo, and Adidas Aeroburner Alloy. My son loves all of these with the Aeroburner being the hottest...until now. The Cat 8 is a solid notch better and my sin smiles ear to ear. He is 12 and a leadoff contact hitter of thinner size with a great swing. This bat hit on the sweet spot smokes the ball. Low vibration to hands. Great bat. We bought 30/20 size. Worth the price. This is the priciest bat we have purchased but priced better than other brands.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Light color scuffs up easily but can be cleaned.
add_circle_outlinePros: Bought this Bat for my 10yr old , playing in his first travel ball season. He loves it!
** balanced feel to the bat
** no vibration on the hands
** hot out if the wrapper
**great price point
** bat looks great
add_circle_outlinePros: Previously bought the F5, which was a great bat (especially) for the price. Decided to spend a little more for the next bat and went with the CAT8. While the F5 definitely has good pop, the CAT8 seems to just a bit more. Where this has seemed to translate is in actual games where my son seems to be generating more pop on balls to the gaps. Also, from what I've seen, my son is getting less sting from this bat that the F5 when it's not squared up off the barrell. In summary, the F5 was a great bat (especially for the price), but the CAT8 seems to be worth the additional price. For what it's worth we've had nothing but great reviews for Marucci.
Unfortunately as of right now, we are only aware of the 2 3/4" version of a -10 like this 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 being manufactured by Marucci.
Which bat will have a longer or larger barrel the Marucci cat 8 -10 or the Marucci Cat 8 -8? Both in a 29 inch 2 3/4 barrel.
If you order the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 in a 29'' and a -8 in the same 29'' the barrel will be the same exact length.
When will the shorter lengths be released?
The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 was released in sizes 27 - 31 inches. We currently only have 30 and 31" available in stock. You can add your email address to our notifications for the smaller sizes and you will be notified when that size is back in stock.
When do you expect to get the 28 inch drop 10 in stock?
Typically speaking, it takes about 2-4 weeks after we run out for the manufacturers to provide us with more inventory. However, considering the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 just released that time frame may be shorter than that.
Which bat gets to the 2 3/4' diameter faster, the 2018 cat 7 (-10) or the 2019 cat 8 (-10)?
Both the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 and the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 will have very similar barrel lengths and offer extremely large sweet spots.
How does the pop compare to a high end composite bat such as the 2019 Zen?
The performance of the bat will be very equal in the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 as the 2019 CF Zen because of the USSSA BPF 1.15 Certification.
Is this bat approved for 11u baseball?
This bat has the 1.15 BPF USSSA stamp for travel baseball. It does not have the USA stamp for Little League play.
Is the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 - 10 approved for coach pitch base ball?
The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 can be used in coach pitch baseball as long as the league follows USSSA.
What is the difference in the Marucci Senior League Cat 8 and the Marucci Junior Big Barrel Cat 8?
The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 will be intended to be used in all kid pitch leagues. Any Junior Big Barrel bat is constructed to be used for coach/machine pitch baseball and should not be used at any velocity above 40mph.
I am looking at one of the new cat 8 bats for a power hitting 10u. Are there advantages to the different types of the cat 8's?
The differences between those models will be similar to the difference in their constructions. The Cat 8 Composite will be a multi-piece bat that will require a break-in period and should be the most comfortable on contact. The Cat 8 Connect is a hybrid bat utilizing an alloy barrel and composite handle. This will provide a traditional alloy feel on contact while reducing the overall vibrations felt by the hands. Lastly, the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 will be a one-piece alloy bat that will be stiffer on contact and traditionally more beneficial for a power hitter.
If I order the bat through your company and there are any defects in the bat such as bending or cracking within a year. Do I send it back through your company?
The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 comes with a 12-month manufacturer's warranty. If your bat becomes defective within a year from the date of purchase, the warranty claim would be handled through Marucci directly.
However, we are happy to provide instructions, contact information, and an UPS shipping label as an assistance to our customers.
My 9 year old plays travel and currently is using an Easton Beast -10 28in/18oz. He is 4'8 and weighs 67 pounds. I am planning on getting him a Cat 7 or Cat 8 for the 2019 season. Do you recommend that I move up to a 29 inch bat for him or stick with the 28 inch. Is there a certain guide you go by to know when to move him up to a longer bat? Thanks!
With the size specifications you listed for your player, we would suggest the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 in 29 inches. The thought process being that he will continue to get taller and stronger.
You can test out our Bat Coach, https://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/ to help determine the right length of bat for your player.
Does this bat have more pop than the DeMarini 2018 CF Zen?
Unfortunately it is impossible to compare the pop of the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 to that of the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen as this is more opinion based. The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 has shown better durability based on customer feedback compared to the CF Zen.
Whats the difference between the -10 cat 8 27â€ inch bat and the junior barrel cat 8 27"?
The difference between this 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 and the Junior Big Barrel model is that the Junior Big Barrel bat is made for use in coach and machine pitch, while this bat it to be used at kid pitch levels.
Would this bat be okay for a 7 year old in coach pitch?
The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 would be a great option for a 7 year old coach player. At his age, I would suggest the 27" 17 ounce 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810.
My 9 year old son is 72lbs and 4 ft 5" and a contact hitter. Is this a good bat for his size? length?
Yes, the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 would be an excellent option. Furthermore, given his specifications I would recommend a 29" bat.
Is this the bat for someone who play's travel on a 12U team? He's 5'5" and 115 lbs. What length would you recommend? He played last year with a 32" bat and had a 1.011 OPS.
The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 I would imagine will be one of the top bats of 2019 for travel baseball. I would recommend sticking at 32'' length based on his height, weight and success that your player has had.
My son is 4' 10" and 110 lbs. He is 12 years old and I want to get him a CAT 8 that he can use for fall ball 2018, spring and summer 2019. He has a 30" Cat 7, drop 8 now and loves it. Should I get him a drop 10 or drop 8 Cat 8; in 30 or 31 inch?
I would recommend going with the 30'' in a drop eight for the 2019 Marucci CAT 8. The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 could be a little light with your son swinging a -8 already and doing well with it.
How does this compare to the Combat Maxum? My son uses the 2018 Combat Maxum (29/18) and has used the Cat 7 (29/19) a few times. Ball seems to jump off the Cat 7 more...am I seeing this right? He will be playing 11u next spring and want to make sure he has the best bat for him. He is 4â€™7 and about 85 lbs.
The biggest difference is the material of these two bats the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX211 is a one piece composite which allows for reduced vibration. Composite bats do require a bit of a break in period and you see their performance increase.
While the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 is a one piece alloy and features a multi-variable wall design that creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are forgiving after off-centered hits. Alloy bats are ready for play right away.
You may indeed see better performance with the Cat 7 due to the added weight of a -10 versus the -11. For a player of his size specifications, we would suggest either a 29" or going up to a 30" -10 or -8 bat, depending on his strength. We recommend a player swinging the heaviest bat they can for best overall performance.
Whatsâ€™s the difference between this model and the Jr version?
The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 is constructed for higher velocities (kid pitch) compared to the Junior Big Barrel which is constructed for coach/machine pitch (max ~40mph.)
Can this bat be used for coach pitch? My son plays 8u coach pitch but will start kids pitch next year. What bat do you guys recommend?
The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 is designed for kids pitch but can certainly be used for coach pitch as well. If your son will be playing kids pitch next year then the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 would be a great bat to get now as well as to use down the road. The one-piece alloy design features a balanced swing weight feel and the AV2 knob design helps eliminate almost all of the vibration a player would feel from an off-centered hit.
