Best USA Bat for 1st year players Boom Parent

Pros: I've never seen a USA/Little League bat help a kids swing more. The balance, pop and handle make this the perfect little league bat. The entire team is hitting with this bat now. And it's $99 to boot!

Cons: Haven't found one yet. Maybe if it came in blue and yellow?

About the Brand

Launched by Baden Sports in 2011, the Axe line of bats was hailed as a breakthrough in bat technology by players and coaches from youth leagues to the Pros. The makers of the Axe line of bats often pose the question, "What does your traditional knob do for you?" Most players don't have a good answer. Axe engineers have created a handle that is not only more comfortable and safer in terms of hand injuries, but also helps improve the hitter's swing by keeping them on an even plane. Although Axe is new to the market, they are backed by Baden Sports, Inc., an independent, family-owned company that has been making baseball products since 1979. Their passion to create a better game is unparalleled, making it no surprise that the Axe handle is set to be baseball's next big thing.
