DeMarini CF Glitch -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB5GL

Trip the system when you take the CF Glitch to the plate and start rocking baseballs into the gaps!

Bat Benefits

This CF Glitch has the same bones as a regular DeMarini CF USSSA rated bat. However, the bat is painted with the special "Glitch" colorway to distinguish it from a regular CF bat. It has a 2-piece, all-composite design and it will be quite end-loaded when compared to lighter sizes of the CF Glitch. That loaded feel will make it a popular selection for power hitters.

The barrel's composite is made with the high-performing Paraflex Plus material. In addition, the bat's barrel and handle are fused together with the 3 Fusion Connection that should promote top energy transfer from the batter's hands to the barrel of the bat at contact with a baseball. As well, little-to-no vibration should get down to a player's hands on a miss-hit due to the presence of the 3 Fusion Connection.

This specific CF Glitch will have the drop 5 sizing to it and it will be very popular for 13 and 14-year-old players who may be making their final USSSA bat purchase before moving on to high school in the near future.

Warranty

If you notice something wrong with your bat within less than twelve (12) months from the purchase date, please reach out to the JustBats Bat Experts. DeMarini has a 1-year warranty on this bat that extends from the purchase date. Our Bat Experts are educated in warranty knowledge and will be able to get you the information needed to reach out to DeMarini and get the warranty replacement process started with them!

Great Drop 5 Bat, Maybe the Best in The Business!! Bobby Lo castro Coach

Pros: Though marketed as an "end loaded bat" very balanced which my son prefers. The power of an "end loaded bat" but with the speed to get around as if "balanced". Would highly recommend. Bobby Lo.

Cons: None

Have a question about the DeMarini CF Glitch -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB5GL? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Is this a balanced bat or end loaded?
Mark Haggerty
The DeMarini CF Glitch -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB5GL is more of an end-loaded bat.
Cameron
Does shaving a bat make the warranty void and is it legal?
candice
Shaving the barrel on the DeMarini CF Glitch -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB5GL, or any other bat, is an illegal modification and voids a bat's warranty. Shaved bats, if used in a game and causing bodily harm, can also result in legal action.
Cameron
I am 5' 9'' 145 lbs. and I used the bat coach and it says I should be using a 32'' bat but my dad says I should get one size smaller and get a 31'' bat. what size should I get?
landon
Based on your height and weight, I would recommend a 32'' bat.
Ryan
So this replaces the zen?
Randy Burkey
No, this is the same exact bat as the CF Zen it is just a different colorway.
Ryan
This is not a BBCOR bat? Whats the difference usssa & bbcor
Cp21
BBCOR is a certification for high school and college level hitters. It will be a -3 instead of a -5. The USSSA is a certification for any USSSA league or tournament.

Is the DeMarini CF -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXC8Z21 and the DeMarini CF Glitch -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB5GL the same, other than drop and color? Do you have the Glitch in drop 8?
Nick Santoro
The DeMarini CF Glitch -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB5GL is the same as the DeMarini CF -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXC8Z21 minus the colorway and drop. Unfortunately, we do not have a drop 8 model.

For the 50/70 Intermediate league, a player would need to use a USA stamped bat. This DeMarini CF Glitch -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB5GL cannot be used.

In 1992, DeMarini Sports had something to celebrate. The three-year-old company had climbed a rung on the proverbial ladder of success, moving its world headquarters from a dirt-floored barn to a slightly larger metal shack. "It was a big move for us," recalled Ray DeMarini from the batting cage of DeMarini Sport’s present-day Bat Industrial Complex. "The new shop was larger, more storm resistant, and -best of all- it had a heater."

In the early days, DeMarini Sports hardly made a blip on the radar screen of softball. With no retailers and virtually no advertising budget, DeMarini grew steadily by selling high-performance bats directly to customers. While established companies made "juiced" bats for the pros and ordinary bats for the public, DeMarini focused on making one line of high-performance bats for pros and amateurs alike. This approach, combined with a passion for the sport, led to the greatest innovation in softball history - the world’s first multi-wall bat: the DeMarini Doublewall.

Released in 1993, the DeMarini Doublewall was the world’s first multi-wall bat. Like a modern golf driver or oversized tennis racket, the Doublewall had a giant "sweetspot," which allowed average players to hit like pros. DeMarini’s sales exploded, and before long opposing bat manufacturers to notice. DeMarini - a homegrown company led by a softball fanatic - had shaken the establishment silly.

To understand the rise of the DeMarini Dynasty, you need to know Ray DeMarini. A cult hero among avid players, Ray DeMarini emerged on the professional softball scene at the age of 40, a veritable geriatric among younger players. With a scientific approach to training, a batting speed of 96 miles-per-hour and a bombastic attitude, DeMarini fast earned a reputation as a savage competitor.

In June of 1987, ESPN launched a nationwide search for a hardcore player to advise on a series of instructional softball videos. When approached by producer Erich Lytle, the biggest boys in softball repeatedly spoke of a five-foot-seven softball giant—Ray DeMarini. DeMarini had mastered reflex hitting, a technique that drops the ball squarely between the infield and outfield. Impressed with DeMarini's knowledge and scientific approach to training, Lytle not only hired Ray as an advisor—he hired him as the host. Together, they produced Ray DeMarini's Reflex Hitting System, ESPN's most successful home video to date.

Having garnered national recognition through ESPN, Ray turned his efforts toward designing a high-performance bat for the masses. To accomplish this, he needed an engineer. "Not just an engineer," he said, "but a boot-strapping rocket scientist who could build an empire with pocket change." Ray's call was answered by Mike Eggiman. Having grown up on a farm, Eggiman was adept at making the most of a situation. Case in point: the company's first piece of automated bat-making equipment had the heart of an abandoned washing machine.

With Eggiman as Chief Engineer, DeMarini Sports delivered a series of industry firsts: the first multi-wall bat (Doublewall Distance), the first high-performance bat for massive players (Fatboy) and the first high-performance youth bat (Black Coyote).

In 2000, DeMarini joined forces with Wilson Sporting Goods to develop the next generation of hitting technology. Ray believed it was a perfect fit, as both companies shared a vision of developing game-enhancing equipment for avid players. What’s more, the companies had complimentary products: Wilson was the leader in gloves, balls and protective gear, while DeMarini made the world’s finest bats. According to Chris Considine, Vice President/General Manager of Wilson Sporting Goods: "The thing that struck me most about DeMarini was their passion for sports and their true competitiveness.

Within a year, DeMarini unveiled the industry’s first concept bat, the $35,000 F1. Secured under lock and key at the DeMarini Bat Industrial Complex in Hillsboro, Oregon, the F1 served as a technological storehouse for future products, including DeMarini’s landmark Half & Half system.

In December 2001, 12 years after the genesis of DeMarini Sports, Ray DeMarini died of cancer in his Northwest Portland home. He was 55. The next summer, the Portland Metro Softball Association paid homage to the “King of Softball” with the dedication of Ray DeMarini Field. Formerly known as Delta #1, the field was DeMarini’s favorite place to test bats during the early days of business. Ray DeMarini—bat maker and player extraordinaire—was remembered for his high-performance softball bats and unwavering encouragement of everyday players. Today, a 40-foot sign announcing RAY DEMARINI FIELD graces the outfield, and an interpretive display chronicling Ray’s life greets players as they register for games.

More "Insane Dedication to Performance" is in store for tomorrow.
