Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB

Pitcher's won't know what hit 'em when you step to the plate with this midnight black CAT8 BBCOR Bat! Be the talk of the town and make sure to get your own CAT8 today with fast, free shipping.

Bat Benefits:

One of the main differences from the CAT 7 is the new and improved AZ105 Alloy, the strongest aluminum on the Marucci bat line, allows for thinner barrel walls, a higher response rate, and better durability. Its 2 5/8-inch barrel provides an expanded sweet spot for more base hits. The 2nd Generation AV2 Anti-Vibration Knob features a harmonic dampening system for better feel and less negative vibrational feedback. The barrel is also precision-balanced for a lower M.O.I, resulting in a lighter feel as you swing and giving you better precision and control. Its one-piece alloy construction provides a clean, consistent swing, and the tapered handle with its soft-touch grip is topped with an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort while you're at the plate.

Warranty:

Marucci is backing this monster of a bat with a full twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty. Marucci: Honor The Game!

Amazing bat lg Player

Pros: The bat has an amazing balanced swing weight that is great for new BBCOR players. Even when you hit off the barrel or even on the tape there is little to no vibrations. As far as durability is concerned there is absolutely no cons. there is so much pop when you square the ball up the bat feels like you missed.

Cons: no Cons

First BBCOR bat Albert Aguilar Parent

Pros: My 13 year old son went from a -8 to -3 BBCOR Cat 8 bat. He enjoys the smoothness of the swing and the lack of vibration when making contact with the ball.

Cons: My son complained about the thickness of the grip. He feels it’s too thick for his small hands.

Have a question about the Marucci CAT8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

What is the removable taper and how does it remove? Do you have to re-wrap the bat?
Steven
The removable taper on the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is found under the bat grip. You would need to re-wrap the bat to remove this.
Cameron
Is the weight evenly distributed throughout the bat or is the barrel weighted more?
Cooper Wade
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR (MCBC8CB) is considered a balanced model.
Kyle
What is the difference between the black and white CAT 8?
Mike
The only difference between the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC8CB) and the Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC8) will be the colorway and cosmetic design.
Taylor
When will Marucci release the CAT 9 BBCOR?
Darren Jones
Marucci releases their bats on a two year cycle. At this time, we do not know when Marucci may replace the current Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB.
Cameron
Just curious if there is any difference between the Marucci Cat 8 Black and White?
Jeff
This Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC8CB) and the original Cat 8 are the same item, just with different paint. This black bat was made to be in line for collegiate baseball rules that will not permit predominantly white bats to be used.
Ben
Does it dent easily?
Kudter Stucki
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB has not shown issues with regards to denting. This should be a very durable bat.
Cameron
Does it come in an end loaded version?
Ken Hodges
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is only featured in a balanced model.
Cameron
Is the white CAT 8 the same exact bat material as the new 2020 black CAT 8?
Colbstereeno
Yes, the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is the same bat as the white barrel CAT 8. Marucci released the new colorway as the NCAA will not allow a white BBCOR bat this season.
Cameron
Marucci Cat 8 BBCOR MCBC8CB and/or Marucci Connect BBCOR. How thick is the bat handle? My son is 14 yrs old and prefers a skinny handle.
Chubby Carson
The handle diameter would be slightly thinner on the Marucci Cat 8 Connect Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8CB when compared to the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB. With that being said, one can always re-grip a bat so a player has a handle thickness that suits them better.
Cameron
Is this bat made in the USA?
Michael
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is manufactured outside of the USA.
Cameron
I bought my son the Cat 7 BBCOR, used for his transition between USSSA and BBCOR. He was super happy with his bat. He loves his balanced bats, not end-loaded. For his birthday I gave him the Cat 8 BBCOR Black, of the same size (31/28) and says that the difference is very felt, it looks like an end-loaded bat, is completely dissatisfied by that change of bat that I made.
José Sanchez
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB features a balanced swing weight just like the previous CAT 7 BBCOR models. At this time, we have not heard anything regarding this bat not feeling as though it has a balanced swing weight.
Cameron
Is this bat USSSA and okay for high school use?
Marie Buffington
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is BBCOR approved for high school play. It is not USSSA approved.
Logan
IS THIS A DROP 3
KIMBERLY
Yes the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is a -3
Jack
As a contact hitter with medium power, would you say this is the best bat to buy for the upcoming high school season?
Carter Jury
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is an excellent bat for both contact and power hitters alike.
Cameron
My son is on the smaller side and more of a contact hitter. What is the difference between the CAT 7 and CAT 8? Which would suit him better?
Michelle
Structurally both bats are basically the same. They are both one-piece, alloy models with a balanced swing weight. The major differences are the updated alloy material that the Cat 8 is made of, plus some manufacturing improvements to help create a larger and more consistent sweet spot in the Cat 8.
Kyle
What are the best one piece bats?
Harold
Based on customer feedback, the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB would be one of the best one-piece BBCOR bats on the market.
Cameron
are the Cat 8 and posey the same bat?
Calvin
Yes. The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB and the Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28S will be the same bat. The only difference will be the paint job.
Jack
Some listings / sites have "LE" in the description - As in "Marucci Cat 8 LE BBCOR Baseball Bat MCBC8CB" Other listings / sites do not. What does the LE mean and is there a difference?
Chris Powell
Typically "LE" will mean Limited Edition, so I'm guessing other sites you have seen have this black model marked "LE" since it is not the traditional white color design. That would be the only plausible explanation, as this is the same model and structure as the Cat 8, just a different color than the white model.
Kyle
Is this black Cat 8 ever listed/called as an LE model? Limited Edition?
Marcus
No, the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is not a limited edition model. This colorway was designed and released due to the college ban on white barrel bats.
Cameron
Is the bat balanced ? End loaded at all?
Clark
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is a balanced bat.
Tori
Is this a drop 3 bat?
Calabe
Yes, this is a BBCOR model and all BBCOR models will be -3 drops.
Kyle
What is the difference between this bat and the 2019 Marucco CAT8 BBCOR Baseball Bat MCBC8?
Carlos
There is going to be no difference in this Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB and the Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 other than the different color.
Ryan
What size should I get with me being 5’4" and 105?
Rakim Ali
For someone of your height and weight, we would recommend getting the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB in a 30 inch.
Cameron
What type of hitter is this bat for?
Rakim
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is not designed for one type of hitter. This is a great bat for both contact and power hitters alike.
Cameron
Difference between cat 8 and cat 8 connect besides composite and alloy
David
The Cat 8 Connect will also be a two-piece instead of a one-piece, and the Connect will also be slightly end-loaded while the regular Cat 8 is a balanced swing weight.
Ryan
Is this legal for 12U travel ball and Jr High School ball for a 7th grader?
Micah
Yes, the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB would be legal for both.
Cameron
What is a removable taper and what are the pros and cons of removing it?
Joe K
The removable taper on the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is found under the bat grip. The main advantage is that it allows for more top-hand control and comfort.
Frank
Are there any differences between this bat and the white MCBCB, other than color? I see that the white bat has some restrictions due to its color.
Chris
There is no difference between the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB and the Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 minus the colorway. Due to the NCAA's new white barrel ban, the Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8, and any other BBCOR bat with a predominantly white barrel, can no longer be used; high school has not adopted the same rule at this time.
Cameron
Where are Marucci bats made?
Nick P.
To the best of our knowledge, the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is manufactured in China.
Cameron
How does the weight of the bat compare to Louisville Solo and Easton Maxim BBCOR bats as I’m hearing the Cat 8 is more end loaded
Matt
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB will be slightly end loaded. It will also have a much heavier swing weight than the 2021 Louisville Slugger Solo BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBS621B3 and 2021 Easton MAXUM ULTRA -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB21MX
Lauren
Is a 31 28oz a drop -8? I am looking for a drop 8 and I don’t know like what the ounce is.
Cameron
No, the 31'' 28 oz Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is a -3. The drop (-) is the difference in the length and the weight of the bat. A 31'' -8 would be 23 oz.
Tori
I'm looking for a Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR drop 5.
Keith Jordan
BBCOR bats will always be -3. You will not find the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB in anything other than -3. The Marucci CAT 9 Connect -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCC95 would be the -5 option within the USSSA standard.
Cameron
What model year is this bat?
george brackins
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is considered a 2018 model year bat.
Cameron
My son has used the bat for 1 month and the grip is already coming off. Is this covered under the warranty?
Steve
Unfortunately, the 12-month manufacturer warranty only covers performance defects. Such as crack, dents, or low performance.
Lauren
Is this bat a USSSA bat?
David Chaffee
No this is a BBCOR bat which all BBCOR bats will be drop 3.
