Baum Bat Composite Wood Baseball Bat: AAA Pro Adult
greatest bat my son ever used
Put 3000+ swings in an 80 batting cage
Pros: Best composite wood bat around. It hits like wood. This bat is filled with a foam like substance and even when I hit it off the handle or the end it never broke. Bought my first one in 2003 and used it until I got a new one in 2008. Still use my old one for BP and the new one in games.
Pros: feels light, well ballanced using wilson 1001 balls and they just jump off this bat, can use in a batting cage at 80+ with no sting, best bat I ever bought
Pros: best wood bat i ever had, the ball jumps off this bat. it will pretty much never break
Pros: Best Wood Bat around to hit and train with it is won't break. Very Good Pop and very little or no sting when hit off the handle.
Cons: no cons at all
Pros: My very first wood bat and I could not be happier. The weight displacement is excellent and the ball explodes off the bat. Also love the knobby handle. Was concerned about buying such an expensive wood bat but after researching a little bit I found you weren't going to find a better bat out there w/that kind of guarantee as well.
Cons: Needs lots of pine tar.
Pros: Simply AMAZING!!! This bat is used by over half our team and accounts for all of our home runs so far this year. Must have for wood bat leagues.
Cons: Price, but well worth it
Pros: im 15 and i play in a wooden bat league. it is the best possible bat to buy i think on the market for wooden bats
Cons: none, too good
Pros: My team bought 4 of them and all have lasted through a year of BP. I had to buy one myself. Awesome Pop! Ive gotten fisted, jammed, and hit off the end. Will not Break! Worth the money.
Cons: Kind Slippery. But nothing Pine Tar and tape cant fix,
Pros: Best composite wood bat around. Too good.
Pros: The best composite bat I've ever hit with. It has lots of pop and the ball jumps off the bat
Pros: greatest bat my son ever used. you could see the ball jump jump off the bat and i put on a easton grip and my son loves it.
Pros: Has the exact feel of a wood bat. Extremely durable.
Cons: Graphics and lettering are sometimes missing/messed up.
Pros: Don't let the price scare you. This bat is worth every penny! This bat has so much pop I have hit homeruns getting jammed and hitting it off the end of the bat with the baum bat when normal wood bats wood have broke.
Pros: Large barrel, good pop, the warranty, how it looks,
Pros: Great Bat! Bought it about a year ago for a practice bat because the team I play for uses wood year round and we have to hit in the cages with wood and every bat i used broke. This one has fisted balls repeatedly and off the end and it has not broken in any way and hits great! Good Pop also.
Pros: Great balance, lots of pop
Pros: great balance a ton of pop super durable no sting if hit farther in on the barrel or handle hugh sweet spot i cant wait till fall wood games start
Cons: may need to choke up on the faster pitchers
Pros: great bat...best wood composite out there by far...light and very durable
Cons: none what so ever
Pros: nice pop great balance for a wood bat
Cons: doesnt have any markings
Pros: Indestructible great training bat that can be used for games as well. Good balance and feel.
Cons: Slick handle so wear gloves.
Pros: My daughter bought me this bat, and it was the best feeling bat I have used in a long while. My teammates didnt like the small knob at first but it quickly became the most popular bat we had. We averaged 1.4 homeruns per game since getting it. It repeatedly paid for itself. I have 7 minor league players who love it and will be buying one for themselves for next year in Low A and Rookie ball.
Cons: It can be broken in the handle if a batter has weak hands, but Baum Bat will replace it as advertized. Amazing for a smaller company.
Pros: Long lasting, great pop. I use the 33" 30oz and it feels perfectly weighted. Hit two HRs in a row in my last game. Both off the first pitch. 3 RBI for the first and a Grand Slam for the second! If you're in a wood bat league don't go past Baum. Yes they are a little more expensive but they are worth their weight in gold. Long lasting and the just get better and better the more you use them.
Cons: Only con is that the handle is very slippery. I use batting gloves plus pine tar.
Pros: Did not miss a beat going from BESR to this bat for summer league! Great bat!!
Cons: NOT REALLY ANY
Pros: Bat seems unbreakable and has great pop for wood. Has a good feel and weight is evenly distributed throughout the bat.
Cons: Bat will chip along the cap and my handle has a piece of wood that wasn't sanded all the way down on the handle
Pros: Great bat!! Rather use this bat than my new composte.
Pros: Looks,feels,and sounds just like a wood bat. I bought this for my 14YO first wood bat league after breaking a couple of Louivilles. He loves the balance and says it feels lighter than his alloy -3 bat. He's getting consistant hits every game with it. My son really likes the bat and it gets a lot of attention at practices.
Cons: A bit pricy, and I know this is cosmetic. But I would have expected the finish to be a bit nicer looking for $200+.
Pros: very good bat... great pop and is impossible to break.... recommend this to everybody who hits with wood bats..
Pros: very good quality. great shipment time. very good company to work with.
Cons: bat seems kind of top heavy. but custimized with batters tape and was fine after that
Pros: amazing pop. Best money i've ever spent.
Pros: Use this bat for practice and games. very reliable and when they say it doesnt break. Trust me it doesnt. The bat has a ton of power and great feel
Pros: Good balance.....wonderful bat...is the best bat I've bought
Pros: used one in rookie ball, works great
Cons: lower price, lol!
Pros: The first time I swung this bat it felt great. 1st at bat hit a screaming line drive up the middle (almost took the pitcher's hat off!) and ever since then I made it a priority to own one for myself although it is expensive. It's a big plus that I don't have to worry about it breaking. - Well Balanced - Great Pop - Durability
Cons: - Expensive - Boring look - Only one design
Pros: Great balance. It had better balance than my now BBCOR Exogrid2!!!
Pros: has a great feel for a wood bat. was scared to get it at first espically for my first bbcor but it was definatly worth the money
Cons: need griptape for it, no big deal
Pros: If you want a durable product look no further. Hands down the best composite wood bat on the market. Many players say they don't like hitting with wood composite because the ball doesn't come off of the bat like a real wood bat. NOT the case with this bat. Very true wood bat feel.
Cons: If taken care of no problems. If mistreated foam can chip from end cap area and handle knob.
Pros: Perfectly weighted, feels light, and the ball flys off. The bat is worth the money, and I will never again by a composite wood that isn't a baum bat.
Cons: price is the single con.
Pros: Love this bat, Felt good to hit with. But it does break .
Cons: The Baum Factory only has a 6 month return/repair policy . My bat started to split and then broke in half two days after the 6 month mark. They said sorry . So keep the date of of purchase handy in case you need to return or repair within the 6 month date of purchase. Don't know if I will go with another Baum or not.
Pros: great pop just amazing inside on the hands and outside of the plate no matter whereyou hit it on the bat it goes far
Cons: heavy, hard to get the sweet spot on target
Pros: the ball flies off the bat and it is very well balanced
Cons: for some reason, my bat is a little crooked...
Pros: These bats are the best conposite type bats available. I love it
Pros: Well balanced, very strong and forgiving. I have never had a bat last a full season. I jammed myself a few times this year and the Baum bat stayed true. Well worth the investment.
Cons: Slightly less "pop" than a maple bat.
Pros: Most balanced bat I have used. Great pop. It has a very good sound coming off the bat.
Cons: Absolutely none.
Pros: Best wood bat I've ever hit with. It gets better as you use it.
Cons: none, except it's pricey.
Pros: Great weight! Great pop! Very very durable! Love this bat!
Pros: Second Baum bat. First one lasted for over two years. Had thousands of cuts with it. Used it for batting practice and games.
Cons: Some could say the price, but if it lasts as long as the first one did, then it's probably the best value.
Pros: This is the best wood bat I have ever own.it has more pop than my marucci AP05, and my demarini 271, it is also great for some one who just started playing in wood lieges.
Cons: For the price it could look nicer.However, you buy the bat for performance and durability not the looks.
Pros: I love this bat it is nice mean when it comes to the plate.
Cons: almost every one wants to use it incluoeding the other team.
Pros: Quick shipping. Bat has great pop and is well balanced compared to other wood that are usually barrel heavy. Will buy another if and when needed.
Cons: Minor blemish on end but needed it for a tournament so could not return. Should not affect performance just a little disappointing in the quality control.
Pros: this bat has great pop
Pros: its very light and it has a the best pop ever .the ball just jump from the bat asap..works great with tape ..
Cons: it hurts your hands when u dont hit the ball well..trust mee it will hurt
Pros: i have had this for a year and it has never broken or cracked as every other bamboo bat has.
Pros: i used this bat in a 32 1/2 and it felt lighter than my 31. this bat has serious power especially for a wood bat. plus the thin handle feels great
Cons: absolutely none at all. BUY THIS BAT NOW
Pros: Very durable, good pop, very balanced swing.... Recommend to anyone who is serious about baseball and needs a wood bat.
Cons: The bat is very plain, but it preforms which is much more important than the looks.
Pros: Bought this bat for my son two years ago before he broke it this year at age 16. He loved the feel of the bat. Well balanced and great pop. He's going to try the Brett Bros Deraptor next.
Cons: The Price.
Pros: Best wood out there. I like the new DeMarini, but nothing will beat this 35" 32 oz. feels like a 33 oz. Perfect bat for a guy that's 6' 1".
Cons: None. My friend swings it and he should be getting drafted next year.
Pros: Son loves the feel, sound and swing better than metal/composites.
Cons: Not as durable I we where leadto believe. My son whois15 broke two this year one at the handle and one at the barrel.
Pros: My kid loves it, uses it over the metal bats even.
Cons: None at this time, as we have only used it for two weeks.
Pros: best bat out there!
Pros: Feels really solid! Jam shots and off the end of the bat does not sting as bad as normal wooden bats.
Cons: A little high on price but we will see how long it will last.
Pros: I've been using this bat for 3 years now. I take BP with it in the cage and at practice. I hit grounders to our infielders with it. I use it in games. This bat has been abused and it still hasn't broken. It has amazing pop. When you hit the sweet spot you don't feel a thing. The handle may be thick for some but it doesn't bother me. As far as durability is concerned I play in 2 rec leagues here in VA that are 20-25 games per league not including playoffs. I've seen guys on my teams buy Louisville, Rawlings, even Marucci. They go through 6-10 bats per season and I've been using the same bat for 3 seasons. If anyone is skeptical, don't be. This is the best composite bat on the market. PERIOD. Nothing else compares. Not even those DeMarini bats.
Cons: Absolutely NONE.
Pros: Fantastic bat! I will use this over my 5150 and i love that bat alot to but definately using this bat!
Cons: The handle should he a bit thicker but not a huge deal
Pros: I'd rather use this than my XL1. You can even hit with it in the cold and it will still stroke. Using this in games a lot for sure.
Cons: Plain design but so is the Marucci Blacks.
Pros: The bat has a great swing feel. is balanced the way i like and had get pop. i am consisering another.
Cons: The bat snapped at the handle after 8 months. I believe they only provide 4 month guarantee. Havent decided if I will buy another but but don't know a good alternative.
Pros: Best pop of any bat I've ever used, extremely light and durable best bat on the market hands down.
Cons: NONE what so ever
Pros: The pop this bat provides is awesome, first live pitch I saw in 2011 went over the fence. Its 3 full seasons later and my Baum has the same pop. I can hit the ball "wrong" and the ball will still fly. Amazing!
Cons: Top of the Bat chipping away...then again my bat is 3 years old.
Pros: Insane durability, yet has tremendous pop. I've hit bombs left and right with this.
Cons: Composite, so check if its legal in your league first.
Pros: Great (tremendous) pop to the bat and the weighting felt very balanced.
Cons: The bat sheered off at the handle after about 50 games over a 6 month time frame.
Pros: Used this bat for 2 years so far. Absolutely zero problems. Feels like wood and sounds like wood. No dull noise, just a solid crack when you hit the ball. Expensive purchase but you'll never have to buy another bat. So it's worth the investment.
Cons: Finish isn't as pretty as most bats out there. But I'll take function over form. It's just going to get marked up anyways.
Pros: Great balance yet still get the top heaviness of a wood bat when driving into the zone! Contact is good and feels great! Moving up to a 34 is much easier with this bat.
Cons: Handel is smooth but nothing pine tar and/or tape can't fix
Pros: shouldve broke but didnt. im 6'4" 260 lbs and got jammed real bad on a fastball , any other bat would have broke but the baum didnt, my hand did turn green for about a day though . also this bat hit in the sweet spot is very hot and seems to keep getting better with time. well worth the money instead of a new bat every couple of weeks or game. another plus is you can hit the bat on anyside.
Cons: wish it had a bigger knob.
Pros: Lasts forever, great feel!
Cons: none really.
Pros: Lots of pop
Cons: Chipping after one game, did not treat it poorly.
Pros: Put 3000+ swings in an 80 batting cage. Love the stiffness and pop of this bat. Hits the ball very well. Balanced which I prefer. The bat snapped in half just above the grip. I sent pics and the explanation of how it happened. I got a replacement from Baum in less than a week. Wonderful customer service. I swing hard and am not selective of pitches. This bat took a beating and was hammering the ball right up until it snapped in half. I had a cheap ash bat that didn't last 3 rounds in that same batting cage. That's should say a lot for the durability of this bat.
Cons: None at all. It's a great bat for me.
Pros: Good pop. Resound able sound. A little expensive for composite wood.
Cons: The end broke off after a few months of intense usuage. 2 months in season and just gearing up for next season and it breaks. My son kept it in his room every night. He is 16.
Pros: THIS BAT IS MY BABY IT HITS BOMBS FOR YOU
Pros: Very nice has great overall pop.
Cons: The end of the bat chips and falls apart. I have already sent three bats back to baum because of this reason. Good game bat not cage bat.
Pros: Durable. The times I've been jammed inside that bat has not shattered. I've used this bat for the last 4 weeks and it has good balance.
Cons: I am underwhelmed by the pop. For the last 4 weeks I've only used this bat. I'm not feeling it. After about 20 cuts this weekend with the Baum, I decided to try my friends Maple DeMarini. OMG, a dramatic difference in pop. I felt way more pop. The ball was jumping off the bat and I was getting the sound I wasn't able to get from the Baum. Sound isn't as important to me as the pop, but it helped validate that I was using the wrong bat. Perhaps I bought a defective Baum. I'm just glad to know I have a better option.
Pros: I was second guessing buying this bat because i wasnt sure if it was worth the 220 dollars but it hits great and feels great.
Cons: When i pulled it out of the box the knob looked like someone hit it on the ground and flattened nearly half of the knob.
Pros: I have always used a metal bat but I would choose this one over my metal bat any day. The feel of it is amazing
Pros: This bat is a great buy! First at bat was a double off the wall. Ever since then the hits keep coming and coming!
Pros: This bat has a great balance and pop, and my son played with it for almost 1 year
Cons: End Cap disintegrated hitting a fast ball off the end during practice
Pros: very comparable to bbcor bats didn't miss a swing going to this bat from my bbcor lasts forever. no more spending $100 on a wood bat that only lasts a few weeks.
Cons: price, but the performance makes it worth it. very slippery, but add a quality bat grip and you'll be fine.
Pros: Felt like i was swinging aluminum with the pop and balance this bat provided
Pros: my son loves this bat this is going to be his game. The ball further than any aluminum or composite bat
Cons: nothing yet
Pros: My son loves it! Good pop and handles really well.
Cons: Two weeks thru...the end started chipping. For the money you pay, it should not happen, right? We're sending back. We will stick to it though.
Pros: It does have a great pop! It handles really well! This is a really good bat if not for cracking so early... see below.
Cons: I got this bat about three weeks ago and last week it started to crack at the end of the barrel. It still on warranty, though it's a pain in the neck going thru the whole return process! Btw, per others' review, it appears (cracking at the end) is a common issue that, I hope, the company will take a hard look at. It's pricy, but it's not supposed to break that fast as other bats!
Pros: Very light bat and lots of pop.
Cons: Very slippery and the end of the bat starts to chip if you hit it off the end of the bat.
Pros: Great pop and lasts a long time
Cons: Nothing yet
Pros: Nice feel
Cons: Not worth the money. Breaks easily off pitching machines
Pros: Great if want the wood feel without the breaking associated with wood bats. Beautiful sound when squared up.
Cons: Awful durability, the end cap started to chip after 1 month. The pop is just okay, with a swing speed in the mid 80's, I wasn't too impressed with the balls flight off the barrel. Speaking of barrels lets thank about the bats undersized barrel coming in at 2.5" (versus 2.65" on your standard 2 5/8 BBC or bat). This bat will sting your hands very bad if you get sawed-off. I do not recommend this product...
Pros: Our sons first Baum bat lasted 2 1/2 years between travel ball and college ball and finally broke a few weeks ago. That's impressive for a wood bat! Lots of pop and very durable! Was spending lots of money on cheaper wood bats that he would break in a month! Well worth the money to get the Baum bat!
Pros: No pros whatsoever.
Cons: Do not buy these bats. Period. End of story.
Pros: Pros? none
Cons: Bat crumbles at the top. Baum will not honor warranty. You are better off buying a wiffle ball bat, much more durable.
Cons: End of bat crumbles immediately upon use. Baum will not honor warranty. Stay away from this company.
Pros: Durability was a key issue for me. I have been playing senior baseball for since 1989 and bought a Baum composite bat in the Rocket model which lasted almost twenty years before finally breaking. It still had pop and I absolutely loved that bat. It was also a team bat at one time. I highly recommend Baum bats.
Cons: I prefer a flat finish but did not want to pay extra. I think it should be the same price. Wish Baum would resurrect the Rocket model.
Pros: durable, get jammed, Baum bat fights it off, lasting another AB, with this bat.
Cons: None that I can find...

In regard to performance, I would have to say that this Baum Bat Composite Wood Baseball Bat (AAA Pro Adult) will not be as high performing as a metal BBCOR baseball bat. BBCOR certification for alloy metal and composite metal baseball bats does bring down the allowable performance on the bats (in comparison to the bats being made before BBCOR was started), but I would still say that the metal options will be higher performing than this Baum Bat (which is a composite wood baseball bat).
The top of my baum bat came off and I wanted to know if it is common. Also, my friend told me it happened to him and it ended up being better after the top popped off.
The Baum Bat Composite Wood Baseball Bat: AAA Pro Adult features a four month manufacturer's warranty so if you purchased your Baum Bat within the last four months you are eligible for a free replacement. I have not heard of the top falling off and I would not say that it would improve the performance of your bat.

The MM110 Adult has an all-maple build with a fiberglass handle to promote durability, but no warranty period will be provided for this bat. To get the most warranty protection, I would recommend Baum Bat.
I am 5'9-5'10 and I'm 165 pounds. What size should I use?
For someone with your height and weight, I would recommend using a 32" Baum Bat Composite Wood Baseball Bat: AAA Pro Adult.
How come the bat chipped after one game in the cap section?
It is tough to say why the Baum Bat Composite Wood Baseball Bat (AAA Pro) would have had issues. Like most wood bats, if hit consistently off the end, the bat can see damage as the end is less durable than the sweet spot. The Baum Bat does come with a 4 month warranty that would cover any significant damage to the bat.
I am 5'6" tall and 140 pounds. What size should I get?
We would recommend the 32" in the Baum Bat Composite Wood Baseball Bat (AAA) Pro Adult model for a player with your height and weight.
I use a 32.5 inch Baum bat. It is by far the best bat I ever used. I have to use metal BBCOR now for college. Which Easton BBCOR bat do you recommend me purchasing? I like a balanced feel with a lot of pop.
Most BBCOR certified models will have a slightly different feel than the Baum Bat Composite Wood Baseball Bat (AAA Pro Adult) but the 2015 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503A) may be a somewhat close comparison and comes in that 32.5 inch size.
We are playing a Perfect Game tournament in 3 weeks. Two players use Baum AAA-Pro. It is BBCOR stamped and I believe it is legal. Can you affirm?

Is the Easton MAKO Composite Wood Baseball Bat better then the Baum bat? Will the Baum bat be made in a 35" model in 2015?
The Baum Bat Composite Wood Baseball Bat (AAA Pro Adult) is manufactured in a 35" model, however they only manufacture a small quantity of this length, and we do not currently have any in stock. The Baum bat features a foam plastic core with an ash shell that results in longer durability.
