Have a question about the Marucci CAT 8 -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC88BG? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Will this come in a 29 inch?
Unfortunately Marucci will not make the Marucci CAT 8 -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC88BG in a 29 inch model.
What’s the difference in this bat compared to the white CAT 8?
There is no difference between the Marucci CAT 8 -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC88BG and the Marucci CAT 8 -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC88 minus the colorway.
Is there a break in routine that is best for this bat?
The Marucci CAT 8 -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC88BG is an alloy bat and thus does not require a break-in period.
Have you had any reports that this model lacks pop? We own a drop 10 Cat 8, the original white model and recently purchased the limited edition drop 8 from your company. The drop 8 sounds like a wood bat and lacks pop when compared to the drop 10. This drop 8 is a USSSA model but hits more like a USA bat. Any feedback would be appreciated.
The Marucci CAT 8 -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC88BG is made with the same features as all of the other CAT 8 bats minus the limited edition colorway design. At this time, we have not heard of any issues regarding this bat.
What's the life span of a aluminum bat like the Cat 8?
The lifespan of any bat will vary depending on how much you use it of course, but I would say you can easily get 1-2 years out of this model even if you are a year round player. We rarely get warranty claims from our customers on this model.
When will the Cat 8 drop 8 30/22 be back in stock for purchase? Will it be anytime soon?
Tara Willis
This Black and Gold model will most likely not be in stock again. It is a Limited Edition color design that Marucci was exclusively selling through us at JustBats.

Understanding this professional standard of perfection has allowed us to handcraft a performance product that will last consistently maximize your game.
