Best USA bat Don Coach

Pros: My son tried just about every USA bat on market. We noticed a distance improvement of 30 feet gained compared to other bats. In fact this bat was so hot ournwhole League ended up buying this bat. At least 30 feet further then any other USA bat.

Cons: I little heavy for a smaller player

Should Have Bought Sooner Jonathan Evans Parent

Pros: Hot out of the wrapper. Satisfying sound, even on miss hits, foul tips wont be missed. Good weight distribution. My 8yo son was crushing line drives on all pitches, high, low, inside and out. At one point he hit 10 in a row. Never done that before. Comfortable grip and absolutely no vibration complaints in the first hundred or so hits.

Cons: I waited too long to buy it.

What is the difference between the Prime and the Select?
Clay
The 2019 Louisville Slugger Prime -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP919B10 will be a three piece all composite bat, while the 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B10 will be a three piece hybrid bat with a composite handle and alloy barrel.
Max
What is replacing last years 718? This bat or the 719? Did they have a bat like this last year?
pete
Louisville Slugger will be releasing the 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTLUBS719B10) on 10/1. This will be the model that replaced the previous 2018 Select 718 -10 USA Baseball model. This was the first year that Louisville Slugger produced a two-piece full composite design for USA Baseball.
John
Would this bat be eligible for USSSA league as well? The new bat rules of proper stamping of a 1.15 BPF or USSSA?
Steve
The 2019 Louisville Slugger Prime 919 -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP919B10 would be allowed in USSSA play. However, this bat's performance will meet a different standard than USSSA certified bats. We anticipate the USSSA version of this bat to be released the first of October by Louisville Slugger.
Daveron
How much heavier is the actual vs advertised weight on average for this bat, specifically for a 29"/19 oz?
Brian W
Unfortunately I'm not really able to provide an average as we haven't gone and weighed hundreds of models for each USA bat out there. Most USA bats weight about .5-1.5 oz heavier than the listed weight. I did weigh a 30"/20 oz model that we have here in our customer service center, and it weighed in at 21.2 oz, or +1.2 oz heavier than listed.
Kyle J.
How does the Louisville 919 Prime USA compare to the DeMarini CF Zen USA in terms of pop?
Ryan
At this time there is nothing concrete that would show significant performance comparisons between the 2019 Louisville Slugger Prime 919 -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP919B10 versus the DeMarini CF Zen USA model. Based on the design of all USA bats, with regards to barrel thickness and performance restrictions, we would venture to say that the "pop" of these two bats would be very similar.

Is the 919 Prime end loaded?
Cj
The 2019 Louisville Slugger Prime 919 -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP919B10 features a balanced swing weight. At this time LS is not making a USA -10 model with an end loaded design.
Cameron
My son is 8.5 years old, weighs 55 lbs, is 4'5". I am curious of the three Prime 919 models (-10 USSSA, -10 USA, and -12 USSSA) what would be the best bat for him and recommended size? Is there much of a difference in pop between the USSSA Model and the USA model?
Jim
The correct bat will depend on if his league requires a USA or USSSA stmap. The Louisville Slugger Prime 919 -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP919B10 would be required by Little League and some others. If he can use a USSSA, I would recommend going with one of those since it will have a better performance. For his age, I would recommend going with the -10 USSSA.
Tori
What bat drop should I use? I’m 155 lbs and 5 foot three.
Ben
If you are seeking the Louisville Slugger Prime 919 -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP919B10, per your height and weight we would recommend a 32 inch.

What is the return policy for this item?
Angie Arana
As long as the bat is unused and in the wrapping, we have a 365 day return policy on this item. Once the item has been used however, is it not eligible for a refund or exchange return.
Kyle
Is this a balanced bat or end loaded? My son will be playing 11U League ball this spring and he needs a light swing weight balanced bat. He is 4'2" and weight 65 pounds
Grant
The Louisville Slugger Prime 919 -10 USA is considered a balanced bat.
Kyle
Trying to decide between the Prime 919, Select 719 or the Ghost X Evolution USA in a 29/19. My son is 9 and currently using a 29/18 Solo 618. I’m a bit confused as to whether or not the 718 is a end loaded bat or not. I don’t want it to be too heavy for him. What’s the difference in barrel size between these 3. I know they’re all 2 5/8 but looking for overall barrel size? I know it’s a tough question but which bat would you recommend of these 3? He is 4’6 and 75 pounds. Thanks
Jay
All of these bats in the -10 size will be a balanced design and feel. In my opinion the Prime and Evolution will feel slightly more balanced however than the Select, but the select has an alloy barrel which is generally a bit more durable than the composite barrels of the Prime and Evolution. However, composite barrels generally allow the manufacturer to create a slightly larger sweet spot, so the Prime and Evolution have a slight edge there. The customer reviews are good on all 3 models, so I don't really think you can go wrong with any of the choices. I would lean towards the Select myself just due to the durability of alloy barrels, but if you want a slightly larger sweet spot, the Ghost or Prime would be the way to go.

About the Brand

In 1842, J. Frederick Hillerich emigrated with his family from Baden-Baden, Germany to the United States. Eight years before, the 1834 Book of Sports had made its debut as the nation's first publication covering baseball. But when he arrived in Baltimore, J. Frederick Hillerich would never have dreamed of the future impact his family would have on America's favorite pastime.

After a short while, the Hillerichs moved to Louisville, where J. Fred started a woodworking shop in 1856. Two of his sons, Adam and John Andrew "Bud" were born in the United States and would later join their father in his business. By 1864 "J.F. Hillerich, Job Turning" was in operation and filled orders for businesses by custom-turning everything from balusters to bedposts.

The firm thrived, and by 1875 the little woodworking shop employed about 20 people. In 1880 Bud Hillerich, who was an amateur baseball player, became an apprentice in his father's shop. Young Bud made his own baseball bats along with bats for several of his teammates.

The debate over the origins of the first bat continues to generate controversy among baseball enthusiasts, but the younger Hillerich was most certainly involved in getting his father's business involved with what would become the company's signature item. According to company legend, the first bat was turned by Bud for Pete "The Old Gladiator" Browning in 1884. Browning was a star on Louisville's professional American Association team - the Eclipse. On a spring afternoon Bud, then seventeen, witnessed Browning break his favorite bat. Bud offered to make a bat for his hero, and Browning accepted. After the young wood shop apprentice lathed a quality stick from white ash, according to the story, Browning got three hits with it in the next game.

Louisville Slugger gloves are worn by more pitchers in Major League Baseball than any other glove.

Good mid-range choice(27/-11) velo Mike Coach

Pros: My 6yr old has the 5150 27/-11 and threat 28/-12. But this is his go to Bat. Consistently hitting baseballs to the outfield. Good pop for USA bat. Other owned bats 2018 voodoo one(28/18), 2018 5150(28/18, and 2018 prodigy(27/16).

Cons: USA bat! His real go bat. Is the CAT8. But the velo gets real close!

Good bat for the middle of the road (29/18.) CY Coach

Pros: Slightly lighter than our 5150 with weight coming in at 19.6 ounces. Seems to have good pop along with good swing weight. A bunch of the kids on the team all took turns hitting with it and liked it.

Cons: Still going to get vibrations when hitting off the end cap or handle. Was hitting yesterday in 50 degree temps and it rung my sons hands pretty good a few times. I am sure the cold temps played a large part of it.

So far so good.... Will Coach

Pros: got this a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the baseball season. My son used a 27/16 last year, and bumped up to a 28/17 this year. We have hit in the cold and rain, and the bat has way more pop than the Prodigy he used the last 2 season. Excited to see what it can do on a warm day.

Cons: miss hits do sting, but that doesn't matter what bat you are using.

The velo-10 and velo -11 is the same bat right the only difference is the weight right? Because looking at the pics it looks like the 2 5/8" barrel in the drop 10 is bigger.
Coach Rich
The difference between the -10 and -11 2019 Rawlings VELO USA Baseball Bat is the length to weight ratio (the drop). Both barrels are 2 5/8" diameter.
Dani
Can you expect the same performance in the 2019 Velo -11 as the 2019 Velo -10? How do the 2019s compare, performance wise, to the 2018s?
Mike
Yes, the performance of the -10 and the 2019 Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat: US9V11 models should be very similar. The drop 10 option will potentially have the upper hand in durability as a result of having an additional ounce in the construction though. Furthermore, we have seen the performance to be very similar among the 2018 and 2019 models.
Tyler
Would you please tell me the actual weight of the 27/16? I assume it is heavier than stated. We have a really small 8u player and are looking for the lightest bat possible.
Coach
The 2019 Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat: US9V11 will weigh an estimated 2 ounces heavy. This is within the industry standard.
Daveron
My player weighs 50 lbs. He currently swings the Rawlings Tee Ball Bat (26"/15 oz). Would you recommend this bat for a 7 year old going into coach pitch?
Armando Merino
Based on your player's age, We would recommend going to the 27" length of this Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat (US9V11). As long as the 16 oz weight can be handled, I think a 27" version of this bat will be great for your player.
Ben
What does it mean by half and half construction?
herc kalos
The Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat (US9V11) is a one-piece aluminum bat but it features a composite end cap. This design helps make the bat feel incredibly balanced.
Taylor
Will the Rawlings Velo or the DeMarini Sabotage be a more forgiving bat for a 45 pound 8 year old? Which one has more weight distributed towards the handle?
Jarrod Harpole
Both this Rawlings VELO -11 USA (US9V11) and the DeMarini Sabotage -12 USA (WTDXUML) will be very well balanced, so it's hard to say which has the edge there. I would lean slightly towards the Rawlings however in my opinion. As for more forgiving, the DeMarini Sabotage will have better vibration dampening due to its two-piece design vs the one-piece design of the Rawlings, so I would give a slight edge to that bat there.
Kyle
Any bat that is 2 5/8" must have a BBCOR stamp on it for our league. I can't seem to find whether this bat has it or not?
Davis
All BBCOR bats will feature a 2 5/8" barrel diameter with a -3 length to weight ratio. This Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat: US9V11 does feature a 2 5/8" barrel diameter but it is not BBCOR stamped as it has a -11 length to weight ratio. The Rawlings VELO BBCOR model is the Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB9V3.
Cameron
Does this 2019 version have the same “ping” sound as the 2018 Velo? (My other son has the 2019 Rawlings Threat and it makes a less desirable muted sound, like a wood bat)
Kevin M
The "ping" sound displayed on this 2019 Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat (US9V11) should be the same as the "ping" sound featured on the 2018 Rawlings VELO. The reason the sound should be the same on the two bats is because both bats feature the Acoustic Alloy from Rawlings.
Ben
Want Rawlings baseball bat 30'' 2 5/8 barrel. Plays a lot travel, what bat to pick?
john barrientos
A Rawlings bat with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter would be USA certified, especially if you are seeking a 30 inch 20 ounce model. The Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat: US9V11 would be an option that would meet your specs. If you are needing a USSSA bat, then the selection becomes very limited with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.

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.
