Description

The Marucci Bat Company™ takes pride in turning top quality wooden baseball bats in the same tradition and precise technique of the earliest bat companies. Every Marucci Bat™ is cut, calibrated, balanced, buffed and lacquered by hand. The Marucci Bat Company™ uses top grade Maple billets cut from selected, naturally grown trees in Pennsylvania forests. This selection process insures the highest possible grade of wood for each bat. The Marucci Bat Company™ bats are 100 percent handmade or turned in small batches from an original design, then finished and detailed by hand. Each model is made to exacting specifications maximizing balance and ease of handling. The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult) uses an Ultra Penetrating Stain that provides the best possible finish for your next Marucci Bat. Most impressive is the Bone Rubbing technique that The Marucci Bat Company™ uses. `Boning` bats began in the earliest days of baseball with players like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. These Hall-of-Famers would spend hours in their dugouts rubbing their bats with old cow femur bones. Bone Rubbing closes the wood`s pores, compressing it and making it harder. Marucci uses the same technique on their bats, rubbing before the finish is applied to seal and harden the wood. Just another example of how Marucci takes the same pride in their bats as our baseball heroes once did. Experience the excellence of a Marucci Bat. Free Shipping!

Pros: Just started working out with the Marucci AP5 the last 2 weeks and I am impressed. This bat surely looks the part but the performance really ices the deal. The bat has some serious pop and the balance is perfect. I really like the size of the "true" sweet spot which extends almost the whole barrel of the bat. Have done cage work only, but know I will not be disappointed when I get outside to hit

Pros: The Marucci bat is awesome. I play old man baseball and have won two World Series rings. The ball comes off this bat almost as good a aluminum. I am 11 for 12 in my last 14-at bats. I got hit once and intentionally walked the other time. Two triples and five doubles. I cannot say enough about this bat. Thanks Marucci!

Chet

Pros: Bat hits hard. My son is now fanatically attached to this bat and he hit the snot out of the ball in fall league. The "bone rubbed" thing really seems to distinguish this bat from two other maples he tried. He likes the thin handle and knob taper of the Pujols model AP5NB.

Cons: Not really a con, but if you swing 90 mph like my son does, a thin handled bat can break if you hit it off the end. (and he's lost a couple) If you are risk averse or don't need a really thin handle there are Marucci bats that have a slightly thicker handle. Great bats.

Eric

Pros: I had a huge problem with breaking bats - ash, maple, Louisville Slugger, Mizuno, etc. I was burning through bats and really needed some value out of my investments so I decided to pay a little extra and purchase a Marucci bat. I'm 6'4 260 and a power hitter. I decided to try this bat and the Chase Utley model. Both bats are excellent but for a power hitter, this bat specifically is phenomenal. Balanced, with a lot of pop, great size handle and knob, looks great, and the pros use it. They (Marucci bats) will give you greater bat life for those times when you get jammed and you have no choice but to take the pitch off the handle or you are protecting with two strikes and you foul one of the very end of the barrel. If you have a little bit of extra money to spend I highly recommend this to anyone who hits for power - it's a worthy investment.

Cons: With wood bat comes breakage. It doesn't matter what brand or type of bat, if it's wood it will break. This bat does give longer bat life than many other companies and models I've used, but because of the heavy, over-sized barrel, this bat will break after a while. Once again, it will give you good bat life for a wood bat, but don't think for the price it's unbreakable. Heavy barrel with small handle + the right impact = breakage

Tom H

Pros: Just because Pujols uses this bat doesn't mean it's good for everyone, he is a very big and strong guy, more so than most. This bat has a nice thin handle, which I like and the tapered handle has a good feel. It has decent pop, but not more than other quality wood bats.

Cons: I consider this a con, but you may not - this bat is very barrel heavy. After swinging this in a 34 and then swinging different bats in 34, the other bats just feel lighter because of their weight distribution. While I do like the thin handle feel, this bat broke on an inside curveball in my 4th game with it. Personally, I will not buy this bat again, I feel there are better bats out there for my swing. BUT, I can't speak for everyone.

The feel of it is amazing it is overall a balanced bat but its got that slight endloadness which gives it that power. The durability is absolutely amazing. The pop is almost as good as my demarini metal bat! The colors and finish of the bat is amazing. I will use nothing else but the ap5 and marucci.

Best Bat I've Ever Owned Kyle Kuhn player

Pros: This bat is no doubt the best bat I have ever used. I bought it in early February and it lasted until this afternoon, which is mid September (7 months). Overall, this is a very durable bat with outstanding pop. I used it in a all BBCOR aluminum league and got 2 other people to switch from aluminum to wood. One of them bought this very bat based on how much he loved its performance. We nicknamed it the Wooden Wonder. I highly encourage you to buy this bat. It is worth every penny.

Cons: The only thing that might be a problem to some people are it scuffs easily from balls. I liked this because it shows you it you hit the ball hard. Otherwise, this bat is flawless.

Cons: Ive gone through two of these in the matter of 2 games. First one lasted about 10 contacts(2 hits, rest fouls went 2-3 this game with a deep double and a broken bat single). This first bat broke off of my own error with taking one off the end of the bat. Still was a base hit. Second bat(which was the under warranty replacement they sent me) lasted literally the first ball thrown to me/hit and exploded like a firework. My teammates got a kick out of the fact that the place of contact on the bat was in the perfect sweet spot for a hit and the bat just flat out failed...The ball left lace marks where I had hit the ball just to confirm. I will unfortunately not be purchasing this bat again. For the cost of 140 per bat normally its just not worth the investment. I have been using the Utley and has done well thus far.

Is this bat 2 5/8 in. bat diameter?
jimbo
This will actually be about a 2 1/2 inch barrel.
Jeff
Do you think the AP5NB or the JH22 is a better bat?
Steve
That depends on your preferences as a player. Barrel size will be the same. The AP5NB has a slightly thicker handle than the JH22. The JH22 will feel slightly more end-loaded compared to the AP5NB. Both are made from the same high-quality maple wood.
Brett
Why aren't you selling the 32" model?
Jeff
We do sell the AP5NB in 32". However, we are currently out of stock as of 9/27/11. The 32" bats should be arriving in the next two weeks.
Kathy
My son is 12 years old and has been told to get a wooden bat for a tournament. Is this a good one to begin on or are there others you recommend? He is tall and strong.
paula
The AP5NB is an adult bat and might be a little heavy for a 12 year old. I would recommend the Marucci Bat Co. Maple Wood Bat: CU26YB Youth model.
Brett
Will this be high school approved for 2012 season? Do they have to have the BBCOR stamp?
sarge14
Wood bats are not required to have the BBCOR stamp. Only composite and alloy bats.
lkh
The difference in all of the Marrucci bats. Freshman baseball using BBCOR or wood. Looking for a good wood bat for my son. Not quite sure what the difference is between the different models.
igy
The AP5NB is an excellent beginning bat for wood. It has a long barrel, gradual taper for nice balance.
lkh
Is this bat very heavy or just enough?
SScaptain
This bat has a very nice balance to it.
Linda
Is this bat BBCOR certified?
Achappy
Wood bats are not required to meet BBCOR standards. This is legal for use even though it does not have the BBCOR stamp.
Brett
What size & weight does Albert Pujols use for his game bat?
katie
It's changed a bit over the years, but most recently, Albert has been using a 34 inch bat that weighs right around 32.5 ounces.
Brett
Just wanted to say love this bat. I've been hitting with it for a couple of weeks (borrowing my friends) but just wondering do these bats come in a variety of colors for ex: do you guys have one that has a black handle and pine barrel?
Eric
Unfortunately, the only colors we have are the ones that show on the website, since this is a players model most manufacturers will only use the colors that the player uses.
Sean
Is it possible to get this bat at 30 inch length?
Austin
Unfortunately, Marucci does not make this bat in a 30 inch model. Not many adult wood bats are available in a 30 inch model, but a few are: Louisville HM125BH, Rawlings 225LAP, Louisville M9C271BHC and Louisville M9C271NC.
John
Looking for a -3 and I am leaning towards this bat. However, while your site says it is approximate -3 another site tells me that it is a -2. Help me understand the two different descriptions.
Austin
With wood bats, it is harder to be exact as with metal bats, on the weights. Moisture in the wood, and the types of wood play part of disparity. With adult bats the weights are approximately a -2 to a -3.
lkh
Is the 33 inch bat 30 oz? Are these drop 3's?
justwonderin
They are approximately a drop 3.
K.B.
How heavy is this bat? Is it a standard -3?
Bryce
With wood, it isn't as exact as metal bats are with weights. Due to the moisture in the wood, the weights vary between a -2 to a -3.
LKH
Do these bats break very easily?
Lazbo
Marucci's "Bone-rubbed" process does make the bats more durable. But as with any bat, reasonable wear and tear, amount of use, some weather conditions, play a factor. But no, I don't believe it will break easily.
Linda
Ash or maple for power hitters?
the bear
Maple is a harder would, you should get a little more pop off of a maple bat.
Sean
Have a boy 5'10" 155 lbs who is currently swinging Easton -3 33 inch. What do you suggest for a Pujols wood bat replacement?
Jake
This is a great link that we have that helps pick out the perfect bat for someone; http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/
Todd
I've been told wooden bats are graded via a dye test with an "8" being perfect. In other words the dye doesn't leak to the left or right. Is this true and if it is, what grade is this Pujols bat?
Mark
With a question as specific as this you may want to contact Louisville Slugger directly at 1-800-282-2287
Sean
What is the weight in this bat?
Jona
The AP5NB has an approximate -3 length to weight ratio. Because wood has a different consistency from alloy or composite, the weight will be an approximate weight, not exact. A -3 length to weight ratio means the 31 inch will weigh approximately 28 ounces, 32 inch will weigh approximately 29 ounces, 33 inch will weigh approximately 30 ounces, etc. All you have to do to find the bat"s approximate weight is subtract 3 from the length of the bat to find its weight in ounces (i.e. 33 – 3 = 30 ounces). Because wood is a different consistency, that weight may vary by a half ounce or so.
TJ
Which bat is more balanced; This AP5 or the CU26? Also, which handle is thicker?
Tj
Both bats will have a balanced feel. The CU26 will have a thicker handle.
KG
How do I get this bat personalized with my son's name engraved on it?
billybob
We do not do personalizations here, but you can Google in your local area for woodsmiths.
Linda
What type of maple is used to make this bat?
Geno
This bat is made of premium pro maple and is high quality. This is a very nice bat.
KG
Does JustBats.com offer any lifetime warranty on any adult wooden bats?
kolby
We do not offer any lifetime warranties on wood bats
Sean
Can you get this in a bat pack or do you have to buy alone?
turtle
This one is only sold individually, at the moment.
Linda
What is the weight of this bat?
rayray
It is an approximate -3. So if your bat is a 33inch, the weight would approximately 30 ounces.
Linda
Do you think the thin .90 inch handle will make this bat easy to break if you get a pitch off the handle?
ham
This is a very durable bat and odds are this bat will break the closer the inside pitch is.
KG
Do you have 31 inch or 32 inch models available in this bat?
Ian
At this moment, we are sold out of those sizes. But, keep an eye on our website as we do have more coming.
Linda
Which Marucci bat would be suited for a contact hitter?
Liam
I would suggest looking at something like the CU26B or the JR7
Sean
Is the AP5 a good bat for a power hitter or would a CU26 be better?
george
AP5 is definitely constructed for a power hitter.
Shelbe
What Marucci bat offers a midway point between the AP5's power and the JR7's balance?
BronxBomber14
The best option between the AP5NB and the JR7 would be the Vernon Wells (VW10). This is will have the balanced feel like the JR7. It will also feature a medium barrel and have a thick handle like the AP5NB.
John
Is this bat legal for the high school 2012 season?
ScorpsKid
Yes. This bat is approved for high school play. This bat is very durable and will be similar to the bat Albert Pujols swings.
KG
Is there any weight differential between the AP5NB and the CU26B?
SHS11

Tyler
What is the barrel diameter?
Mikey
The AP5NB is approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
KB
Does this bat come with a warranty? If so, how long does it last for?
Zack
Most wood bats, including this on, are not covered under warranty. However, if it does break within 30 days of your purchase, give us a call at 1-866-321-2287 and we'll let you know what the options are.
Tyler
Does the AP5 have a week spot on the barrel like most older wood bats? Is there a particular way to hold the bat such facing the trademark a certain way?
Kavin
Trademarks are put on all wood bats in a specific spot, for a specific reason. When hitting with wood bats the first thing the player must do is make sure the label (trademark) of the bat is straight up or straight down at the moment of contact. The area to the sides of the trademark are where the grains of the wood are the hardest and strongest.
Tyler
Is the AP5 Albert Pujols bat BBCOR approved?
bt
Yes. The AP5NB is considered a BBCOR approved bat. Wood bats are not required to carry the new BBCOR certification mark but they are legal for leagues that require the use of a BBCOR bat. The only wood bats that need the BBCOR stamp are bamboo bats.
Tyler
Does it break easily?
Big guff
Although wood bats are prone to breaking, the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult is a very durable wood bat, so won't break as easily as most other wood bats.
Zach
For a power hitter is this bat or the JH22 a better option?
steve

Sean
What size is the barrel on this bat? Also, what is the largest wooden barrel allowed in high school play?
Benjamin
The barrel diameter is approximately 2 1/2 inches. 2 5/8 inches is the biggest barrel size allowed. There will not be any wood bats with barrels bigger than that.
Tyler
Is this bat warranted, and how long will this bat last?
Cj
The AP5NB does not come with a warranty. Unfortunately, wood bats do not have set lifespans.
Tyler
Does this bat have an unfinished handle or is just a clear coat? If it is clear which Marucci wood bats do you have that have unfinished handles?
H dog
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood bat has a clear coat on the handle. The Louisville Slugger Major League Baseball Player Bats Wood Bat: GI13EL Adult has a natural handle and would be a good choice.
Kara
If I swing a 32 inch aluminum bat, what size wood bat should I use?
long ball3r
We suggest you still use the same 32 inch length in a wood bat that you currently use in aluminum.
Tom
Are these bats made of rock maple or just a select grade maple?
Bossman
Rock maple is just another term of hard maple. The Marucci AP5 is made from hard maple.
Tyler
Does this bat have the manufacturers warranty?
Fergie52496
No the regular wood bats do not have a manufacturer's warranty. Some of the composite wood bats do have the manufacturer warranty, but this Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB does not.

Tom
Compare the sweet spot between CU26 and AP5, which one is larger?
ethan
The sweet spot on the Maurcci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat AP5NB is a little larger than the Chase Utley Maple Wood Bat CU26. The Pujols is end loaded, making it better suited for power hitters, whereas the Utley is more balanced for contact hitters.
Cooper
Would I be allowed to use this bat in high school? As in BBCOR certified?
jake
Yes, the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple wood bat is high school approved.
Sean
Would I be aloud to use this bat in high school for a BBCOR bat?
jake
Yes. Bats for high school must be BBCOR certified or a wood bat.
Damon
Which bat is better for a power hitter, the Marucci JB19 or the Marucci AP5NB?

Damon
How big is this barrel?
me
The Marucci AP5NB has a 2 1/2" barrel diameter.
Tom
I am a power hitter that also hits for a lot of contact, would the Albert Pujols version or the Chase Utley version be better for me?
sweetspot12
From my personal experience, they are both great bats, and you would be successful with either one.
Zach
If I customized the AP5 bat to be a -3 or a -4 would that change the weighting and/or the hitting ability of the bat?
baseball
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat cannot be customized. All wood bats will have approximate weights. The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat has an approximate -3 drop.
Kara
What is the best Marucci bat?
kham1597
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat is one of the best Marucci wood bats on the market.
Kara
Is the JB19 Marucci better than the AP5NB Marucci?
kham1597
The Marucci JB19 and AP5NB are made from the same bone rubbed maple wood so the performance will be the same. The rest is personal preference on weight distribution and handle thickness.
Tom
Do Marucci bats come with a ink dot on the handle?
Kyle
Marucci's bats do not have the ink drops on their handles.
Tyler
Does this bat or does the JB19 Marucci bat have a bigger handle and which one has a bigger barrel?

Would you prefer this bat or the Marucci Jose Bautista Maple Wood Bat: JB19 Adult bat?

johnny
Both the Marucci Albert Pujols model and the Marucci Jose Bautista model have 2 1/2" barrels. The Albert Pujols model will have a long barrel with a tapered handle, whereas the Jose Bautista model will have a gradual taper into a mid-sized barrel.
Damon
I'm a 12 year old I'm 5'9" and I guess I swing pretty hard so if I get the AP5 will I break this bat any time soon?
Nick
Maple is one of the strongest wood materials made in bats today. Even will that, there is no way to determine when a bat will brake.
Chad M.
How does this compare to the CUTCH22?
tc1426
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult and the Marucci Andrew McCutchen Maple Wood Bat: CUTCH22 are just two player model bats. They will be very similar in almost every aspect.
Noah
What is the weight of the CUTCH22 bat that is 31 inches?
dan7
All Adult Marucci wood bats, like the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult and CUTCH22 models, will have an approximate -2 to -3 length to weight ratio. In a 31" model, they will weigh approximately 29 to 28 ounces.
Mac
I'm 13 years old and I'm looking for the perfect wood bat. I like bats that feel light in my hands. I'm a contact hitter and I bat 1st or 2nd in the line up for my team. I'm a fan of the 271 turn bats. What wood bat is good for me?
Swingman
If you are looking for a balanced 271 turn model the Sam Bat Maple Wood Bat: KB1 Walker/Black Adult is going to be a great choice for you. They are very durable and high performing bats.
Noah
How many ounces is the Pujols AP5NB?
joey
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult bat has an approximate -3 length to weight ratio. To determine the approximate weight of the model you choose, subtract 3 from the length of the bat.
Mac
Are any of Marucci's bats a 271 model?
RPB24
Marucci doesn't use traditional turning model numbers since all of their custom player models differ from the standard turns.
Kevin
What Louisville Slugger model is the AP5 most similar to?
Matt
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult is difficult to compare to other brands, as they don't release their turn models. The AP5NB is relatively similar to the Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Buster Posey Maple Wood Bat: WBVM14-43CNA Adult, as both have large barrels, a slight endload and a cupped end.
Katie
What's the difference between the AP5BN and the AP5NB?
baseball guy
The only difference between the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult and AP5BN models is their color scheme. The AP5NB features a natural handle and black barrel finish while the AP5BN features the inverse of that paint scheme.
Mac
Is the Marucci Albert Pujols maple wood bat AP5NB adult meant just for power hitters, or will it also be good for contact hitters and still have a lot of pop?
Big Ry
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult is a great bat and would be good for both contact and power hitters.
John

Ari
The barrel on the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult and the JB1 Sam Bat will be almost identical.
Noah
Is Maple or Ash better for power hitters?
samE
Ash is more flexible and tends to flex rather than break. Maple has a greater surface hardness than Ash which some players believe gives them a better performance.
Damon
Is this bat very durable? Also, are they as durable as BBCOR wood bats?
drew
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult is a top of the line wood bat and will be very durable. BBCOR wood bats will be very similar in durability as well.
Noah
Do you get a warranty on bat?
Trey
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult does not come with a warranty.
Kara
Are the Custom Pro model Marucci bats the same thing as the Pro Model Marucci bats, or are they different?
Mark

Mac
How do you keep the bat clean? Like how do you get marks off of it and stuff? And also, which is better, pine tar or tape?
ThomasEdison
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult can be cleaned with soap and water. A Magic Eraser can also be used. Tape is cleaner and can be re-taped, while pine tar is on there for good. Pine tar is typically tackier, for a more secure grip.
Katie
Is this more balanced than the CUTCH22? Which is better?
jim
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: AP5NB Adult and the CUTCH22 are slightly end loaded. Both use the same quality maple wood.
Kara

mike
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat (AP5NB) has an approximate 2 1/2" barrel.
Kara
Is the handle finished or unfinished? How does it compare to the SSK Robinson Cano bat for a 5'11" 210 power hitter?
Stags22
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat (AP5NB) Adult has a finished handle. The AP5 is going to have a smaller handle as well. The SSK Robinson Cano Maple Wood Bat (RC24) Natural/Black Adult will have an unfinished handle and a slightly smaller barrel length.
Aaron
I'm an 8th grader playing baseball for my school. The bat needs to be drop 3 and BBCOR certified. Would I be able to use this bat? Does it meet those standards?
billybaseball
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat (AP5NB) is made of one solid piece of wood, so it does not have to meet BBCOR certification. Bats made of solid maple, ash, hickory, and birch are not required to be BBCOR approved.
Kara
What's the actual size of the barrel?
liz
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat (AP5NB ) has an approximate 2 1/2" barrel.
Kara
What type of bat do you think is better? Marucci's or Sam Bat?
Mark
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat: (AP5NB) and Sam Bat models both use a very high quality maple wood. They are similar in performance and durability.
Kara
Which bat is better? The Marucci AP5 or CU26 model. I don't know which to get.
nick
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat (AP5NB) features an end loaded swing weigh and a thick handel. This would be a great option for you if you are more of a power hitter. The CU26 features a more balanced swing weight and a thinner handle. The CU26 would be better if you are more of a contact or line drive hitter.
Justin R.
What is the weight of the bat?
david
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat (AP5NB) will have an approximate -3 length to weight ratio.
Bobby
I had the Marucci CU26B and I swung with it perfectly and hit good. Would I feel a big difference by buying the AP5 or the JB19? What would be the differences in the swing weight, barrel size, etc.?
tigerball
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat (AP5NB) will feel slightly end loaded compared to the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Bat (CU26B) and the Marucci Jose Bautista Maple Wood Bat (JB19). All of the barrels will be approximately 2 1/2".
Kara
I'm 6'0" and 190 lbs and more of a power hitter. Would you guys recommend the JB19, the AP5 or the CUTCH22?
Momo
This is really a personal preference. All can be used by power hitters, and are designed for hitters that are power hitters. The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat (AP5NB) is more end loaded than the others. If you prefer that weight distribution, I would go with that one.
Justin R.
The American Legion Baseball rules say on Wood Bats in the Bat Rule "The bat must be a smooth, rounded stick not more than 2¾ inches in diameter at its thickest part nor more than 42 inches in length. An indentation in the end of the bat up to 1 inch in depth is permitted (cupped bats)." Does this bat meet those requirements?
Classified
Yes, the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Bat (AP5NB) is legal for American Legion play.
Bobby
I am a contact hitter and I hit mostly line drives. Which Marucci Wood Bat would you recommend for me?
ClutchMan
The Albert Pujols Maple (AP5NB) has a slightly end loaded swing weight. For a contact hitter I would take a look at the Chase Utley (CU26B) or the Andrew McCutchen Maple (CUTCH22NC) because of their balanced swing weight.
John

cw17

Merritt
What is the barrel size of the AP5?
the man
Marucci does not publish exact measurements of its Pro Cut models like the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB). It has a slightly larger than average barrel for a wood bat so it would be close to a 2 5/8 inch diameter.
Patrick
How does the Marucci AP5NB compare to the Marucci AP5BN besides the color?
gill
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult) will be the exact same bat as the AP5BN. The only difference will be the color scheme.

The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult) is going to have a long barrel with a tapered handel giving the bat a balanced feel. The Marucci David Ortiz Maple Wood Baseball Bat (PAPI34) and the Albert Pujols bat are going to be bone rubbed with a cupped end.

I am 15 years old, weigh 140, and I'm 5'10". My wooden bat just broke, so I'm looking at the Marucci bats. I am a contact hitter. What bat do you suggest?

For your size we would recommend a 32" bat. The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult) is a great dense bat. Its long barrel and tapered handle give it a light and balanced feel.

Is the AP5 end loaded?
1st baseman
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult) is not going to be end loaded. The long barrel with tapered handle makes the bat feel lighter and more balanced.

The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB) Adult and the DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Baseball Bat (DX110) Adult both have a balanced swing weight. The Marucci Pujols bat is an approximate -3 length to weight ratio. The DeMarini Pro Maple bat has an approximate -2 to -3 length to weight ratio.

Is the AP5 similar to the Buster Posey Louisville Slugger Prime (243C) model?
Ben
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB) Adult and the Buster Posey model are fairly different. The AP5NB has an approximate 2 1/2" barrel diameter and a 29/32" handle. It also features a balanced swing weight. The Buster Posey model features a larger 2 5/8" barrel diameter with a 15/16" handle. It features an end loaded swing weight.

Jake
How come some Marucci bats in the big leagues have ink dots on them and none of the Marucci bats on the site have ink dots?
Owen
There might be differences in the wood used in the pro level Marucci bats. With our Marucci bats including the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult) the sticker/label acts as the ink dot. When hitting with the bat you will want to make sure that the label is facing up.

Patrick
Is this bat BBCOR certified or are there any other Marucci wood bats that are BBCOR?
Brady
This Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult) will not feature BBCOR certification, however, wood bats that are built from one type of wood (like this AP5) do not need to bear the BBCOR certification for use within NFHS sanctioned games. If you were playing in a contest sanctioned by NFHS, then you would most likely be allowed to use this in a game even without the BBCOR certification. (Marucci actually does not make any wood bats with the BBCOR stamp on them)

Based upon your player's height and weight, we would make a general recommendation of looking at the 33" option of this Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult). As long as you feel that you can handle the approximate drop weight of that 33" length, then that size would be my recommendation.
Ben
Which Marucci wood bat features something similar to a 243 turn model?
swrhoads
I would say that the 2016 Marucci Buster Posey Maple Wood Baseball Bat (POSEY28) is going to be the most similar to that 243 turn model.
Carter
Would you recommend this bat for a freshman in high school? He is 5'8" at 155. Does this bat meet high school regulation?
X
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat: AP5NB Adult is a very good option for a high school player that wants to use a wood bat. The fully maple design and approximate -3 length to weight ratio make it legal for play in high school. Based on the players height and weight, we suggest a 32" model.

Swinging a 32" AP5 today, but always prefer a thinner handle. What is the difference between the AP5 Pujols, Cutch22 and the Posey bat?
gspbrad
In my opinion, this Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult) will be the most balanced of the bats being considered. However, I believe the handle thickness on this AP5 and the handle thickness on the Cutch22 will be very similar (Cutch22 has more of a handle taper than the AP5 and more of an end-load when compared to the AP5). Lastly, the Posey28 will have the thinnest handle of all three bats and will feature the most end-loaded feel of all three bats.
Ben
My son is 9 years old, 4'7" tall and weighs 115 lbs. He is a great contact hitter, but I want him to have more bat speed through the zone and more power out of his swing. What bat should he get and what size?This is for Little League.
Walter j Baldt
We would recommend a 30" length for someone of his size. Unfortunately we can't recommend a weight as there are too many unknown factors for us such as strength, swing efficiency, whether they choke up or not, etc. I would not recommend an adult wood bat like this Marucci Maple Wood AP5. It will be much too heavy for him. You will want to look at one of the new 2018 USA Bat certified models that are listed here: http://www.justbats.com/products/approved%20for~usa%20bat/.

Thickest youth wood bat from Marucci that I can customize on their website?
Mason
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat: AP5NB Adult is designed for an adult player and will have more of a I13 turn model. You may want to reach out to Marucci directly with any questions regarding custom bat orders as we do not offer this on our site.
Cameron
Is this the same wood as the youth or a bigger barrel? What's the difference?
johnney baseball
The main differences between the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat: AP5NB Adult and the youth model is the barrel diameter and length to weight ratio. A youth model will have a 2 1/4" barrel diameter while the adult has a 2 1/2" barrel diameter. As well, a youth model will be -5 length to weight ratio while the adult model is a -3.
Cameron
Will it break easily?
Isaac Rath
This Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB Adult) is a well-built bat, however, if you were to take a pitch off the end of the bat -or- the handle, there is a solid chance that the bat may break. That being said, this bat does carry a short 30 day warranty from the purchase date and if the bat broke within that time-period, you would be eligible to return to Marucci for a warranty replacement bat.
Ben
Does this bat comply with the restrictions below? Just in case you are looking to buy a wood bat here are the rules for the bat in the tournament in Nashville memorial weekend.

The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat: AP5NB Adult would be approved for your tournament based on the rules that have been provided as this bat is constructed from a solid piece of maple wood.

Description

Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat: MCMBLEM Black Adult
Take your game to the next level with a Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat! These particular "BLEM" models indicate that there was a minor error in the manufacturing process of the finished bat. These blems can range anywhere from chipped paint to uneven grains. Blem models will still be structural solid, but a cosmetic or minor variance from a standard model will exist. As a result, many players and parents find great value in going the route.

Bat Benefits
The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bats will have an approximate -3 length-to-weight ratio, perfect for any high school or college-aged player. As a result of these being blemished bats, there is no guaranteed turn model at purchase. This means that the bat will certainly arrive at the length of your choosing but the knob, handle, and even barrel can arrive different than any of the others.

Pros: This bat used to be the MCMBBCULL before that bat changed its look. I am assuming that these are just the leftovers and they changed the model number. Great, great bats and such a good value for a quality Marucci wood bat.

Cons: I've had many of these and haven't been able to identify the "blem" in most of them. The latest one was just a small nick in the end of the barrel. Doesn't bother me!

Pros: Love the durability of these especially for blems. I run an adult baseball team and use this as my bat/the team bat. Always have at least one leftover at the end of the season and there will be five or more players using them. Ball jumps off the bats

Cons: Ordered blems 5 times now. Got a model I liked everytime but once. The risk of getting a model I dont like is worth the reward. If you care about the look black isnt the most exciting thing in the world

Pros: With a 13 y.o. who loves to swing wood in the cage and at practice, these bats are a great deal. As far as blemishes go, I can't find any. Bats are well balanced and high quality. Can't go wrong at this price point.

If you like gambling, this might be for you. Scott player

Pros: Shipping to me in Japan was as quick as can be expected and the box that the bats arrived in was in great condition condition. After unboxing the bats I have to say that I was very impressed, aside from the lame and cheesy "BLEM" that covers the Marucci "M". The finish was top-notch and looked beautiful. I could not see any visual defects with the bats (I got the "bat pack" ). So I was thinking, "great! I basically just got 2 Marucci bats for the price of 1!" Well, thats where the excitement stops for me...

Cons: As you cannot select the style of turn when you buy blemished bats, I was slightly disappointed when both of mine turned out what seemed to be a 110 style bat. But having only swung mostly 271 style bats I figured "eh, I'll make these work for me." First BP session: Swung the bat a good 50 or so times and while the feel of the bat was great, I feel like the distance I got off of it was worse than my 17 year old ash bat. I thought maybe I was doing something wrong and just decided to stick with it. A few more BP sessions later and I still feel like it just doesn't have the pop that it should. Well, in it's 2nd game of use I hit a ball square on the barrel. The bat absolutely exploded in my hands. It split into 3 big pieces and the biggest piece, the barrel, had several more cracks running the length of it. This was all on 1 of the 2 bats I received. The 2nd bat feels similar in pop so I'm sure its a matter of time before that one explodes as well.

Marucci Maple kelgar parent

Pros: flawless for a maple bat, impeccable finish. I picked this up for a my kid when he was 13.. year and a half later this bat has been used and abused. Did a hitting session yesterday and he hit 3 out with the Maruch, and only 1 with his 917 Prime. Ordering another in a bigger size. The bone rub makes this bat very hard, and the finish is like a piano.

Cons: None so far, its a steel for MLB quality maple. Hope the second is as good as the first.

Marucci is the only one for me Bill player

Pros: The pop on this bat is very good and the durability is great. Of course with any wooden bat it only takes one pitch hit in the wrong place and that will break the bat. I have had one for 2+ years and it is still going strong. I have 3 of them with 2 different sizes.

Cons: Just remember you can swing any bat one time and if hit in the wrong place it will break. It is wood so you have to expect that to happen.

Has major signs of wear and tear, but still has a nice feel and really decent pop. Still feels solid when making contact. very little if any "sting". For $80, its well worth it.

Cons: None, really. I guess the reason it was a BLEM bat was because my bat had some small little dents in one small spot, but the finish and everything else seemed just fine.

Is it BBCOR certified?
PR All Stars
Because the Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM) Black Adult is a one-piece wood bat, most leagues will not require it to feature a BBCOR certification mark.

How is this Marucci blem different than the "pro cuts" that cost $40 more? Aren't they all blems?
JM
During Marucci's strict Quality Control process, they separate the bats that do not meet their high standards (Culls/Blems) into different grades. Those specific grades are not shared with us, but they are based on factors such as weight of the wood billet, straightness of the grain, and cosmetic blemishes such as Tiger Striping. The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM) Black Adult bats do receive a slightly lower grade than the (MCMBBCULL) models. Because of that, the price is lower; but their integrity is not compromised.
Mac
What is the barrel size on this bat?
eli
Because the turn model can vary, the barrel diameter of the Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM) Black Adult bat that you receive can range between 2 1/2" to 2 5/8". When these bats are finished, their intended turn model is not engraved or printed on the bat. Because of that, we are unfortunately unable to guarantee specs such as barrel diameter or handle thickness.
Tyler
What is the weight drop on this bat? -2 or -3?
Webb
The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM) will be an approximate -2 to -3 length to weight ratio. They do not list an exact drop weight because the density of the wood piece the bat is fashioned from can vary which would make the weight of the final product vary slightly from bat to bat. Most wood bats only offer approximate drop weight information.
Patrick
Do you recommend this bat for in-game use?
Zach
While the Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM) would typically be more recommended for practice, it could be used in game situations as well.
Patrick
Could I use this for games?
baseball player
The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat: MCMBLEM Black Adult is best suited for cage use and for practice, but could be used in games as well if you'd like. BLEM bats were pulled from the production line for any number of reasons that did not meet their standards. These blemishes can range from Tiger Striping in the wood, uneven grain, light/heavy billets, and many other minor cosmetic flaws. Because Marucci wood is sourced from only the highest quality Pennsylvania maple timber, you're still left with a durable bat that offers reliable and consistent performance from the first swing.
Marcus
Does the model name come on the end of the bat?
baseballbeast
The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat: MCMBLEM Black Adult is a blem bat and will not feature a "name" on the end of the barrel.

The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat: MCMBLEM Black Adult is a one-piece fully maple wood bat and it is legal for BBCOR. It does not feature the BBCOR certification stamp, but it is not required to feature the certification stamp.
Jason
Is this bat end-loaded or balanced?
Chapy
The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat: MCMBLEM Black Adult is a blemished bat which means it was pulled from the production line for any number of reasons that did not meet Marucci's standards. That being said, each individual bat of this model will differ from another. Some may have an end-loaded feel while others may seem more balanced. Unfortunately BLEM bats do not have a determined swing weight.
Angelique
Can I use this bat in high school?
Cain Rivera

Jason
Is this bat for power or contact hitters?
Luke
This Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM Black Adult) could be purchased for a contact or a power hitter. With the being said, I would be cautious if you are needing to be specific about the feel that you will receive on the bat you purchase. This MCMBLEM bat can come with a balanced or end-loaded feel and there is actually no way to guarantee the exact feel you'll receive on the bat.
Ben
Hit with the emblem up or down?
Rick
We recommend hitting with the label either facing towards the sky or towards the ground. This will help increase durability with the bat.
John
