Have a question about the 2019 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

I am going into my senior year and I'm looking at which Rawlings bat I should purchase. (1) I am wondering what the difference was between the 2018 Rawlings 5150 and the 2019 Rawlings 5150. (2) Also, what Rawlings bat would you recommend between the Velo and the 5150? And why?
(1) The 2018 and 2019 Rawlings 5150s will differ in their cosmetics and that the 2019 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB953) features the new Hyper-Lite Speed Cap for a lighter feel and faster swing speed. (2) For many years now, the VELO bats have rated very well at JustBats and for some of the years, many considered the VELO, the best BBCOR bat out there. Because of that high regard, I might suggest the VELO over the 5150. However, I think the 5150 bats are awesome and if you want one, it would be a great purchase.
Does this bat feel like a Louisville Omaha 517 model?
Christian Coipel
The 2019 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953 would have a similar feel to a LS Omaha 517. Both of these bats are one-piece alloy models with balanced swing weight designs.
What are all the differences between the 5150 model and the VELO model? Also, what model would you recommend for a mid sized freshman in high school?
The differences between the 2019 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953 and the 2019 Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB9V3 is the 5150 will have a balanced swing weight, 5150 Alloy and will have a straight wall barrel design. For a high school freshman I would recommend the 2019 Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB9V3 because of the ultra balanced swing weight compared to the 5150, which is more end weighted than the VELO.
What is the barrel size? My son is saying something has to be 2 5/8, not sure what that means.
Brook Bonomo
The Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953 will feature a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. Per BBCOR standards, all bats will feature a -3 length to weight ratio with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
What’s the difference between the 5150 and the VELO?
The Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953 will feature a plastic end cap and the 5150 aerospace alloy while the VELO has a composite end cap and acoustic alloy; the VELO is essentially better balanced than the 5150.
My son needs a BBCOR for next season. He is 12 yrs old, 5'1" tall and 105 lbs. He currently uses a 2018 Rawlings 5150, 30", -5. He is contact hitter, not a power hitter and will need a balance bat. I'm looking between the Rawlings 5150, Louisville Slugger Solo and the Marucci Cat 7. These bats seem pretty similar to each other. Do you recommend one over the other and why?
All three of the bats you mentioned are one-piece, aluminum/alloy designs, so the feel will be roughly the same between all three bats. In my opinion, it mostly comes down to personal preference on which bat you choose, because the performance should be very similar for all three. If you want a little more vibration dampening, I might lean slightly towards the Marucci Cat 7 as it features their AV2 knob to try and help with that, but if you don't struggle with vibration at all, I would choose whichever model you think looks the best. The Rawlings 5150 also has the loudest ping, which some people do like.
Is there a 2019 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953 in a 33" 30 OZ?
At the time of this posting, we are sold out of the Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953 in the 33" option. We currently do have this size available in the Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853.
Any major difference between 2019 5150 and the new 2020 5150? Still same swing weight feel?
The only significant change is that Rawlings attempted to improve the barrel design to maximize the sweet spot size. The swing weight and feel should be practically identical.
How would you compare the 2019 5150 vs the Cat 6 Gen 2? Swing weight and sweet spot? Etc
These two bats should be very similar in terms of overall feel and performance. They are both one-piece, all aluminum/alloy models that offer a very good swing speed and balance.
Is there a 30 day trial period for the 2019 Rawlings 5150?
No, there is not a trial period for the 2019 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953.
Do you have the Rawlings 5150 BBCOR, BB953 in a 34''?
Unfortunatley, we will not have the 34'' Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953.
Which bat would feel more balanced? The 2019 Rawlings 5150 or the Red Marucci Cat 6 Gen 2? Do they have same sweet spot size?
Both the Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953 and the Marucci CAT 6 Gen 2 are one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights. It would be more personal opinion regarding the balance feel and sweet spot size. If you were to poll 10 different hitters you would get different responses to each topic/category.
Which bat you think better for a 6 ft 180 lbs sophomore with good bat speed that hit for contact and power? The 2019 5150 or 2019 DeMarini Voodoo balance? Also, will older 2016 Z-Core HMX compare well to these new bats?
When searching for the right BBCOR bat, there is not going to be one bat that is better or worse equipped/designed for a contact or power hitter. BBCOR bats are, in essence, a slightly higher performing wood bat. The correct one to get is more based on personal preference. Things to consider would be swing weight feel, one-piece or two-piece, alloy or composite barrel. The Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB953 would work well for those that prefer a one-piece alloy design with a slightly "heavier" balanced swing weight feel. These bats will offer slightly higher exit velo due to the one-piece design whereas the DeMarini Voodoo, and its two-piece construction, will offer better vibration reduction when the ball is not hit correctly. As for the Easton Z-CORE, this bat would compare favorably to that of the Rawlings 5150 in construction and 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.
