Baseball Bat Benefits
Featuring the anti-vibration AV2 knob, this bat reduces the sting in the hands once the ball connects with the barrel, and the thin walls provide a lightweight feel, which makes it easy to follow through over the plate. Ideal for power hitters, this Marucci Cat8 BBCOR bat has a large sweet spot to make it easier to connect with the pitch.

Long time Marucci fan-this is the one! Trey Player

Pros: Best pop, feel, balanced and quite a difference from Cat7. We’ve been Marucci fan for years but this is their best bat by far. Feel is a step up from 7 and I’ve swung my teammates Eastons and LS’s. They don’t compare if you want a balanced bat for high school baseball.

Cons: None

When was this product released and is there a connect version of this?
Jhaeden Bowers
The Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG was released on 10/25/2019 and at this time there is not a Connect model of this colorway.
Max
Is there a 33.5 or 34 inch model for this?
Jake Haruki
Unfortunately there is not either of the two sizes you seek in the Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG.
Cameron
What is the difference between this bat and the other black Cat 8 MCBC8BC (other than the red and black versus black and gold color scheme)?
Courtney Stange-Tregear
There is no difference between the Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG and the other CAT 8 MCBC8CB other than the color.
Tori
The NCAA has a new rule about there no white bats white bats are permitted is this color safe
Ron G
Yes the Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG is okay. The rule is for bats that have the primary color white.
Jack
Will you have any 34 in models available in the future?
Sebastian Mitchell
Unfortunately we will not be receiving 34 inch models of the Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG.
Cameron
I live in the midwest and the springs are cooler than many parts of the country. Is this bat safe to use in weather that is below 55 degrees?
Mike
Yes, the Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG is an alloy bat which is what we recommend for colder temperatures.
Tori
Can you use this bat for USSSA?
Jose Cruz Porras
Yes, the Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG could be used in USSSA but these bats are lower performing. Would only recommend 13U or 14U players potentially using this bat.
Cameron
What’s the difference of the first gen cat6 and this Cat 8. Very important question as college doesn’t allow white bats anymore
Bodie parker
The differences between these two bats are small. The Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG is going to have better vibration technology as well as upgraded alloy compared to the Marucci Cat 6 GEN 2 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC62.
Jack
Is this considered a "big barrel"?
Brent
A few years ago this would have been considered a "big barrel" bat, as that term used to reference anything larger than the smaller, 2 1/4" barrel size. Those bats are not in production anymore, so "big barrel" mostly refers to the 2 3/4" barrel diameter that is used for USSSA play. This bat has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, like all BBCOR models are required to have, not a 2 3/4" barrel.
Kyle
From a previous reply it appears that the Cat 8 bat would not be recommended for 15 to 16 year old players.
Ron Turkett
The Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG is one of the more popular bats for high school and college players that we offer. We strongly recommend this bat for all baseball players at that age, especially if you prefer a more balanced bat.
Ben C
Which bat has a bigger sweet spot, the Marucci Cat 8 or the Easton Ghost X?
Jeremy
Both bats should have a similarly sized sweet spot in my opinion.
Kyle
Is this bat approved by the NCAA for the 2020 season? There is a little white in the bat. Was just wondering if I can use it for my collegiate season or if it would be banned for having a little white.
Aaron
The Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG will be approved for NCAA baseball.
Jack
What is the difference between the MCBC8BG and the MCBC8CB? The price is different.
Calvin
The Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG only differs from the MCBC8CB in terms of colorway. The higher price of the Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG is the result of the bat being an exclusive colorway. As a result, Justbats.com pays Marucci a higher unit cost per bat due to the limited production run.
Cameron
Why is this Cat 8 59 dollars more than the black and red version? I also can't find it on Marucci website so I'm confused. Thanks.
Peter Gleason
This is an exclusive Black and Gold color that is only being sold through us at JustBats. The limited edition design is the reason for the higher price.
Kyle
Does this bat have more pop or less then the connect.
Mark O'Mary
The Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG will have the same amount of pop as the Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8.
Jack
I am interested in purchasing one of the Marucci Cat 8 bats, but I do not know which one to buy? I saw that there was another Cat 8 listing, but it was only $300... I am just curious on what the difference is between them.
Jaden Vassallo
This Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC8BG) and any other regular Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR bat will be the same beside the color way (even if a regular Cat 8 is being priced at a different rate).
Bri
Just want to make sure this Marucci Cat BBCOR Baseball Bat is in fact a -3 (Drop 3).
Eddie
Yes, the Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG is a BBCOR/drop 3 bat.
Cameron
So there's no difference between the MCBC8BG and MCBC8CB models except for color.....and $100 in price?
Jeff
Correct, the only difference is the color. The Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC8BG) is exclusive to our website and Marucci has given us freedom to change the price.
Bri
Is this bat end loaded or balanced?
Brandon
The Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC8BG) has a balanced swing weight.
Bri
What size, thickness, is the grip that comes on this bat?
Ron
Unfortunately, we are not aware of the exact thickness of the grip tape on the Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8BG. Our best guess would be 1.1 mm thickness.
Cameron
The CAT 7 BBCOR was generally recognized as end or more power loaded. Is the CAT 8 BBCOR a new design and now considered "balanced"?
Ron
The Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat ( MCBC8BG) is considered "slightly end-loaded".
