A faster bat offers mastery for those inside pitches and improves overall swing mechanics, so you are capable of hitting the ball hard and far into the outfield. The acoustic alloy composition makes this one of the loudest bats on the field, so you'll achieve a loud ping sound as soon as the ball makes contact. Rawlings: Finest In The Field.

This Rawlings VELO USSSA Baseball Bat (UT9V5) features a drop 5 length to weight ratio, a 2 5/8-inch barrel diameter, and the USSSA 1.15 BPF thumbprint located on the taper.

Great Bat Bat Enthusiast Coach

Pros: After a ton of research we decided to go away from Marucci which we have been a longtime supporter of their products. So far we are very pleased with the Velo. The bat has very good pop and is very balanced. With the balance swing weight it provides the hitter with good bat control and fights against the loopy swing. Comparing the Velo against the Cat7 -8 that my son was using, he liked the overall feel and could not tell he was swinging a heavier bat. I also liked the fact that this bat still has a 2-5/8” barrel. In two short years when the BBCOR transition happens I wanted to have the barrel diameter to remain consistent. He thought his Cat7 was loud when the ball was hit, but this bat is definitely louder. My son really likes his Marucci bats, but he wanted to try a new bat mainly due to the balanced swing weight and the Velo is better in regards to the balance feel than the Cat8.

Cons: no so far

Great transitional bat JW Parent

Pros: Got this bat as a transition for my son, 12u player, to the middle and high school world of -3 : BBCOR. The -5 is getting him away form the -10 models he has been using. He loves the feel and pop and the crazy loud sound of the VELO series. Hopefully games will go as well as cage time and BP. Paint finish seems very durable as well, no chips or blemishes after a few hundred cuts. Great deal at Just Bats for $120.

Cons: None so far.

Quality bat Peter Parent

Pros: Good hits, just as far as with cat7, nice colors. Feels lighter than it is when swinging. Great price value.

Cons: Grip had to be replaced with lizard skins. Original a little to slick in hands. Keep in mind my son does not wear batting gloves.

Have a question about the 2019 Rawlings VELO -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: UT9V5? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Since this has a USSSA label is it legal in high school and college? To my understanding it has to be a drop 3, not a drop 5.
This Rawlings VELO -5 (UT9V5) is not legal for high school and college play. USSSA is a certification used below the high school level. BBCOR is the standard used for high school and college play, and is found on all -3 bats.
What's the difference between this bat and the 5150 USA model? Do they have a 5150 (-5) that is USSSA approved?
The Rawlings VELO -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: UT9V5 is a one-piece alloy bat using acoustic alloy and featuring a composite end cap. The 5150 from Rawlings is also a one-piece alloy bat but features a different alloy (5150 aerospace grade) and plastic end cap. The VELO will thus be a more balanced and easier to swing compared to the 5150. As for the 5150, it is not made in a -5 USSSA model at this time.
Handle width of the UT8V5 versus UT9V5. Did rawlings make the handle a bit thicker on the UT8V5 versus the UT9V5?
Between this 2019 Rawlings VELO -5 USSSA Baseball Bat (UT9V5) and a 2018 edition, the actual width of the handle did not change. However, the the grip on this 2019 bat will be thinner than the grip on the 2018 version. Because of that change in grip thickness, the 2019 edition of the bat will feel like it has a thinner handle width than the 2018 edition of the bat.
What's the difference between this and the Rawlings 5150?
Both the Rawlings VELO -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: UT9V5 and the 5150 are one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights. The VELO will feature a composite end cap and acoustic alloy making this model more balanced and lighter swinging when compared to the 5150.

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.
