Marucci 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. Marucci 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. Marucci 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. Marucci uses an Ultra Penetrating Stain that provides the best possible finish for your next Marucci Bat. Most impressive is the Bone Rubbing technique that they use. "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!

add_circle_outlinePros: The 29' is a couple ounces heavier than the 28' Chase Utley model, but my smaller 10 year old son can get it through the zone jut fine. The barrel has a bigger sweet spot so he gets more pop with it. Marucci makes great, durable bats for younger players to use to make the BBCOR transition much easier.
add_circle_outlinePros: My 11 y/o son got this bat earlier this year and immediately fell in love with it. Took only a few cage sessions to get used to the weight difference and the feel but once he figured it out he started doubles.
add_circle_outlinePros: This bat has a very balanced swing weight added to the giant sweet spot that allows for loads of pop. The tapered knob really makes this bat very comfortable to swing. This bat does chip relatively easily, but not that much chipping. The paint finish is great I really like these colors more than the CU26. Over all this is the best youth wood bat you could get
add_circle_outlinePros: Son used it in his first wood bat tournament of the year. He had no issues with the weight. He had some nice line drives with it, despite being a little heavier and an inch longer than his usual bat. Marucci makes great wood bat products! Shipping was fast as usual with justbats.com
remove_circle_outlineCons: None--looks and feels great!
Owned 2 months 11 yr old kid broke bat in half
add_circle_outlinePros: All in all good bat just poorly made
remove_circle_outlineCons: Its a great bat all in all but seems weak if a 11yr old kid can hit a ball and brake the bat in half by the handle doesn't say much. Since we are over 30 days they will not warranty the bat
used 16 times
add_circle_outlinePros: Wanted a wood bat for offseason hitting. My 10yr old son has about 500 swings with the bat 30/25. Feels great in his hands, he loves the feeling and sound off the bat when a ball is squared up.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Grip: We didn't want to use pine tar so we purchased a lizard skin grip and installed it. Problem solved
add_circle_outlinePros: My sons had the 28 inch model, which I found the handle to be a tad thin. So, when it was time to move up to a 29 inch, I bought him a JB model, because of the thicker handle, which he likes, but without the tapered knob, which he wished for. The 30 inch model had the best of both world, tapered knob, and surprisingly, thick handle like a JB. Not sure if this is by design, or just a variability in the bat making process. I ordered 2 bats, one was a minus 7, the other a minus 6. The -7 would be his game bat, and I am encouraging him to train with the -6. Five Stars in all categories, beautiful, hard bats, that produces a lovely contact that an MLB player would approve.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Wish no cup is an option
I never write reviews but...
add_circle_outlinePros: This bat was a big step up from my son's Mizuno. Two hard hits at his first at bats with this new "weapon of choice." He likes the light weight, hard maple, and most importantly the sound of the ball cracking off the bat.

Do maple or ash bats have more "pop"?
I wouldn't say that a maple wood bat like this Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (AP5YB) will inherently be higher performing than an ash wood bat. Most players make a preference on wood type based off the feel that they prefer at contact. This maple bat would produce more of a stiff feel at contact while an ash bat would produce more of a flex feel at contact. As well, ash bats generally feel lighter than maple bats. Based upon these factors, most players are able to make a determination for a material of wood that they prefer.
My son is 10 next month and currently swings a COMBAT MAXUM 30 inch -12. He's 4'5" and 85 lbs. What is a good size wood bat for him for bp?

Are Marucci Wood Youth Baseball bats with a 2 1/4 barrel diameter legal for senior league play, ages 15-16?
One would need to check and make sure that the bat would need to be a drop 3 length to weight ratio.

The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: AP5YB and the Marucci Andrew McCutchen Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CUTCH22YB are going to feel very similar in swing weight design. The AP5YB will have a slightly more balanced swing weight to some due to the taper design of the bat.
