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.
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!
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.
What is the removable taper and how does it remove? Do you have to re-wrap the bat?
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.
Is the weight evenly distributed throughout the bat or is the barrel weighted more?

When will Marucci release the CAT 9 BBCOR?
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.
Just curious if there is any difference between the Marucci Cat 8 Black and White?
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.
Does it dent easily?
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB has not shown issues with regards to denting. This should be a very durable bat.
Does it come in an end loaded version?
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is only featured in a balanced model.
Is the white CAT 8 the same exact bat material as the new 2020 black CAT 8?
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.
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.
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.
Is this bat made in the USA?
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is manufactured outside of the USA.
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.
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.
Is this bat USSSA and okay for high school use?
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is BBCOR approved for high school play. It is not USSSA approved.
IS THIS A DROP 3

As a contact hitter with medium power, would you say this is the best bat to buy for the upcoming high school season?
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is an excellent bat for both contact and power hitters alike.
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?
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.
What are the best one piece bats?
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.
are the Cat 8 and posey the same bat?
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.
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?
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.
Is this black Cat 8 ever listed/called as an LE model? Limited Edition?
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.
Is the bat balanced ? End loaded at all?
The Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB is a balanced bat.
Is this a drop 3 bat?
Yes, this is a BBCOR model and all BBCOR models will be -3 drops.
What is the difference between this bat and the 2019 Marucco CAT8 BBCOR Baseball Bat MCBC8?
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.
What size should I get with me being 5’4" and 105?
For someone of your height and weight, we would recommend getting the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB in a 30 inch.
What type of hitter is this bat for?
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.
Difference between cat 8 and cat 8 connect besides composite and alloy
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.
Is this legal for 12U travel ball and Jr High School ball for a 7th grader?
Yes, the Marucci Cat 8 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8CB would be legal for both.
What is a removable taper and what are the pros and cons of removing it?
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.
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.
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.
