Very light bat Bill Parent

Pros: Lots of pop for a very light bat.

Cons: My son has used the rawlings velo BBCOR for last 3 years, middle school and HS, and it is his favorite bat by far. We demo'd the 2020 and he didn't like the ultra light feel, compared to last years model, so I bought him a couple of older Velos from justbats while still available. That being said, if your son is new to using BBCOR this bat has a lot of pop for a very light bat and is a great first BBCOR. It will make the transition to BBCOR much easier. Also say if your son is swinging a 33, he would be able to swing a 34 Velo APC no problem. Some HS kids like that.

ROCKET BALLS!! Kyle Coach

Pros: I have bought 4 2020 model bats this year of different brands for my son. This being bat number 4..... after 10 mins with this bat, i don't see him using anything else! He is a 13 majors player and the ball screams off this bat! Its noticeably HOT!! The other 2020 bats we bought are good... this bat is GREAT. Balance is perfect, swings super light and sounds awesome. Haven't used in game yet but if the cage is any indication.... should be a great year for him. We are buying 2 more of them! If I could give it 8 stars.... I would!

Cons: Not a fan of the grip... but that is an easy fix!

BBCOR Velo Dave Parent

Pros: Good bat. Rawlings has become our favorite brand because of the quality, performance, and durability of the bats.

Cons: Had to go up to drop 3 BBCOR for high school earlier than physically ready and the bat weight came in at almost a drop 2 making the transition even harder.

Velo BBCOR has pop Brady Player

Pros: Nice pop Light swinging bat Barrel ridges for backspin Comes in a half size at 32.5” Sounds good Slightly larger barrel than USABat and USSSA bats. Knob is a good size. Some are too small. Great color way

Cons: Bat tape not the best. An easy fix though. Recommend buying it with new bat wrap from Just Bats. Let them put it on.

Decent bat way to high of a price Justin Tanner Player

Pros: It hits well when hit on the tiny sweet spot

Cons: If you miss the sweet spot by half in inch your whole body will pay for it the vibration control is horrible I didn’t use the bat all summer because of it.

Have a question about the 2020 Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

CAT 8 vs Solo vs VELO? What are the similarities and differences and which bat is better for different types of players?
Logan Kraus
The Marucci CAT 8, LS Solo and the Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 are all one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights. All three options are excellent bats to use, regardless if the hitter is a contact or power type. Both the VELO and Solo will have composite end caps giving them a slight edge in balanced swing weight feel over the CAT 8. The CAT 8 though features an AV2 knob which gives this bat better vibration control.
Cameron
My son has last year's VELO and after hitting a lot he complained about the knob hurting the bottom of his hand when he swung. Will this bat have a better taper knob compared to last year's model?
Q
When comparing the knob taper and construction of the new Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 to the previous year's model one will not see a difference. One can always create their own taper by using athletic tape to thicken the handle near the knob.
Cameron
Is this bat suggested for hitters with power? And how is the pop of this bat compared to other models like the past versions of this bat?
jack c
The Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3, with its balanced swing weight, is a good bat to use for both contact and power hitters alike. As for how this bat compares to previous VELO models, we have not heard anything to date but would imagine this bat will be one that BBCOR players will gravitate towards.
Cameron
With the 2" end cap, if the ball is hit off the end cap within those 2 inches, how does that affect the hit compared to hitting it more on the barrel?
Jeff
Rawlings has engineered the Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBZV3) that a ball that connects with the 2" end-cap should not break the bat. That being said, you will want to try and avoid hitting the ball off the last 2" of the bat as hits on the barrel will go much further.
Ben
What is the difference between last year's bat and ths Rawlings Velo?
Stu
The Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 features a new end cap as well as an improved alloy barrel design when compared to the previous year's model.
Cameron
How well does this VELO rank in terms of the new bats for collegiate baseball players?
Deron Gabriel
The performance and durability of the Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 is living up to previous year's models. This is one of the lightest swinging BBCOR bats with extreme balanced. These attributes greatly benefit a wide range of players.
Daveron
How much larger is the sweet spot on this bat vs last year's bat?
Ron Beimel
It would be hard to quantify the difference in sweet spot size on the Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 versus previous year's models. With that being said, the VELO is an excellent option for someone that prefers a one-piece alloy bat with an extremely balanced swing weight feel.
Cameron
How does this bat compare to the Easton Alpha 360 and the Victus Vandal? Which bat has a higher grade alloy?
Big Rob
The Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBZV3) and the Victus Vandal BBCOR Baseball Bat (VCBV) will be balanced swing weight compared to the 2020 Easton Alpha 360 -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB20AL) which will have and end-loaded swing weight. Based on the price the Rawlings VELO and Victus Vandal value their alloy about the same.
Patrick
What is the differences of the VELO ACP and Prime in overall performance and also in vibration?
tom wagner
While both the Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 and the LS Prime BBCOR bats are balanced models, the design and feel of the bats will be considerably different. The VELO ACP is a one-piece alloy bat with a composite end cap. This bat will be stiff on contact, which will help with exit velo, but will sting the hands when the ball is not squared up. Since it has an alloy barrel, it will dent overtime but alloy bats tend to hold up and perform better in colder weather compared to a composite barrel bat, like the LS Prime. The LS Prime features a two-piece fully composite design. This bat is likely to feel more balanced than the VELO and offers better vibration control. The flex a two-piece bat offers helps the reduction of vibration from a miss-hit but also can detract from exit velo. When these bats break, the composite barrel will show signs of splitting.
Cameron
How does this compare to last year's Rawlings Quatro Pro BBCOR bat?
Matt
While both bats are balanced models, the Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 is a one-piece alloy while the Quatro Pro is a two-piece composite. The VELO will not offer much in terms of vibration control but the one-piece design should allow for slightly better exit velo.
Cameron
Compared to last year's Velo, does this Velo have a bigger sweet spot? And are the differences between the two noticeable by the batter?
Valdemar Gómez
The Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 will have a pOp 2.0 Technology Creates A Large Sweet Spot And Improved Feel which will be more noticeable to the hitter using the bat.
Jack
What is the differences in the 2020 VELO 33" and the 2020 VELO 33.5" bats? I have noticed a price difference between the bats.
Ray
The only difference between the Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 33 and 33.5 is the 1/2 inch in length. The difference in price is based on the different price point we get each size from Rawlings. Since 33.5 is not as commonly used, we get a lower price on them.
Cameron
I’ve hit with both the 2019 Voodoo balanced and VELO and was wondering what you 2020 model you would recommend to get? If this helps with the decision, I am a 3 hitter who uses all parts of the field and drives it out of the park with both bats.
Preston
The Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 would be an excellent BBCOR bat to consider. Its balanced, one-piece alloy design makes it a great bat for both contact and power hitters alike. Generally speaking, a one-piece bat will offer the highest exit velo at an average of 3-4 MPH better than a two-piece bat.
Cameron
I'm 5'4, about 100 pounds, and going into 7th grade. I'm hitting about 200 ft. consistently with my - 8 USA bat and I am wondering if this bat should be the next step up.
Hunter
The 2020 Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 would be a good bat to transition with as it is well balanced. It will also be a high performing bat.
Tori
Do I need to be cautious in any certain temperatures with the composite end cap on this bat?
James
No, one does not need to worry about the weather pertaining to the usage of the Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 and its composite end cap.

About the Brand

Rawlings is a major manufacturer of competitive team sports equipment and apparel for baseball, basketball, and football, as well as licensed MLB, NFL, and NCAA retail products. Rawlings is a major supplier to professional, collegiate, interscholastic and amateur organizations worldwide, including the Official Baseball Supplier to Major League Baseball.

The first real innovation in glove making occurred in 1912 when Rawlings Sporting Goods Company introduced the "Sure Catch" glove, which was "endorsed by leading players all over the country." The Sure Catch was a one-piece glove with sewn-in finger channels and looked better suited for a duck's foot than a man's hand. Catchers' mitts used at the time were large and bulky with a single leather thong passing for a web.

In 1920, Bill Doak, a journeyman pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, approached Rawlings with an idea for improving the baseball glove from a mere protective device to a genuine aid in fielding. The "Bill Doak" model was so revolutionary that it stayed in Rawlings' line until 1953. Its key feature was a multi-thong web laced into the first finger and thumb, which created for the first time in baseball's young life, a natural pocket.

In 1925, Rawlings unveiled a three-fingered fielder's glove, and ten years later improved the Bill Doak model with a two-piece leather web. At the same time, the "T" web became a rage for first basemen's mitts. The pocket underwent a pronounced change in 1941 when the Trapper Mitt, also known as the Claw, appeared. The "Deep Well" pocket was so unique that Rawlings quickly patented it. The design was improved in 1950 by adding a leather piece across the top. Another significant creation occurred in 1948 with the three-fingered Playmaker. A five-fingered fielder's model, with all fingers laced together, provided greater pocket control.

The six-fingered Trap-Eze evolved in the 1960's. In more recent years, Rawlings produced the Fastback design, which gives a glove a snugger fit, greater extension, and overall control. The Holdster is a slot through which a finger can be extended for additional protection from impacts on the pocket. Then, there is the Edge-U-Cated Heel with its extended U-shaped lacing and the Pro H Web and much-copied Basket Web.

Some of Rawlings more recent glove innovations also include the unique Spin-Stopper design which reduces ball spin when the ball hits the glove, and the Cantilever glove design feature that provides a cushioned area between the hand and the glove's palm area. In all, Rawlings has produced and patented more functionally innovative glove features and designs than that of any other glove manufacturer. The result is that the modern baseball glove is much larger, more comfortable, better padded and made to last far longer than its ancestors. It is not uncommon to see today's Major League players wearing the same Rawlings' glove they wore during their college playing days. In fact, Rawlings is the #1 glove in the major leagues. Rawlings maintains about 65 models of baseball and softball mitts and gloves in its line. The prototypes of virtually all of them have been field tested by professionals before entering a sporting goods dealer's inventory.
