I didn't see the mark in the picture, but it's recommended on several other sites as a certified BBCOR bat. Is this bat BBCOR certified?
This Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RIZZ44) is built of a one-piece, all-maple design. Typically, if a high school player is playing in a game that allows players to use wood bats, then any adult wood bat comprised of one wood type (maple, ash, hickory, birch, etc.) would be allowed for play (regardless of bearing the BBCOR certification mark).
How does this bat compare to the AP5NB?
The Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB) Adult is going to be a little bit more balanced than the Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RIZZ44). The Rizzo model has a Medium-Tapered Handle while the AP5 is going to have a little bit more taper in the handle and a little bit longer of a barrel.
Do you guys offer this bat in a youth model and, if so, is it offered in different makes of wood? I have been looking at the Andrew McCutchen youth bat and was wondering what the difference is between both besides just the wood. I am buying this for my 10 year old son.

Does the Anthony Rizzo model have a barrel diameter that is smaller than 2 1/2"? If not, what wood bat does?
This 2016 Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RIZZ44) will feature a barrel diameter of 2 1/2" or just slightly over 2 1/2". If you wanted a bat that had a barrel diameter smaller than 2 1/2", then you may have to look to a Youth style of wood bat.
I am right-handed, 6'2" and weigh 235 lbs. What bat length and weight do you recommend?
Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 34" model in the 2016 Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat: RIZZ44. Wood bats have an approximate weight on them, so the 34" model will be about 31 oz.

Will this handle compare to the JB19 handle?

Could you explain the differences between the Marucci RIZZ44 and the Marucci JB19?
This 2016 Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RIZZ44) will feature a decently long barrel length on the bat, but it will still display a decently balanced swing weight.

This 2016 Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RIZZ44) comes with a decent barrel length, but still manages to feature a pretty balanced swing weight as well.
