This thing hits lazers! Jackson Player

Pros: This thing hits lazers in every direction. Great balance and pop.

Cons: Maybe a little pricey for Aluminum but performs better than the composites so is actually a bargain.

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 the 2019 VELO and after hitting a lot he complained about the knob hurting the bottom of his hand when he swung. Will the 2020 have a better taper knob compared to the 2019?
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 2018-2019 versions?
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 the 2019 and 2020 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 does this compare to the 2016 Rawlings Velo?
George
The Rawlings VELO ACP BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZV3 features an upgraded alloy material and end cap design when compared to the VELO from 2016.
Cameron
How well does the 2020 VELO rank in terms of 2020 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 the 2020 vs the 2019 model?
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.

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.
