Description

Marucci CAT 9 -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC95

This CAT 9 drop 5 bat continues the excellence that was started by the original Marucci CAT 5 so many years back! It still features the classic one-piece, all-alloy design!

Bat Benefits

The big advancement from the CAT bats of the past to this CAT 9 is the new AZR Alloy Material. What makes the AZR alloy unique is that it goes through a 3-stage thermal treatment process. After that process is completed, Marucci is left with an aluminum material that (1) has more feel (2) has more forgiveness and (3) performs better. 

That new alloy material is part of the one-piece, all-alloy design that is painted in a black colorway with red & silver graphics!

Warranty

Marucci covers this bat for twelve (12) months from the purchase date. If you buy the bat from JustBats and the bat breaks down or is not performing, please reach out to the Bat Experts. They will be able to assist in getting you set up with the directions and info for sending the bat to Marucci for a replacement.

What is the main difference between this bat and the Cat 8? Charles C.
This Marucci CAT 9 -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC95 will feature a new AZR Alloy, it goes through a 3-stage thermal treatment process which makes this material create better feel, better forgiveness and better performance while maintaining the same strength of material seen in past Cat bats.
Ryan
I would like to know why this bat has 2 3/4 barrel diameter? My son has always used Marucci and he is waiting for this one, other brands have the same specifications bat in 2 5/8, is this going to be a disadvantage to my son? Graney
USSSA allows bat manufacturers to make bats with a max barrel diameter of 2 3/4 inches and so that is what Marucci chose to do with the Marucci CAT 9 -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC95. Having the larger 2 3/4" barrel diameter, compared to the slightly smaller 2 5/8", gives the hitter a greater chance of squaring the ball up. Getting a bat with the smaller 2 5/8" though would help the hitter get use to what will be used in high school and the BBCOR bats.
Cameron
Does this bat have a lot of end-load? Or is it a light swinging drop 5? m
The Marucci CAT 9 -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC95 features a balanced swing weight. How this bat relates to other USSSA -5 models in terms of swing weight feel would be hard to say but it will certainly not feel end-loaded.
Cameron
Is this the same as the cat 9 connect? CJ Miller
No this Marucci CAT 9 -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC95 is a one-piece aluminum bat, while the CAT Connect is a two-piece hybrid (Aluminum barrel, composite handle).
Ryan
My son is 10 but is 5’3” 130# and is swinging a Marucci Hex Alloy 30”, -10. Given his strength I’m considering going to a -8 or -5. Any reason or benefit in going to a heavier bat? Dan
We recommend using the heaviest bat that does not take away from the players swing speed as extra weight can help put more power behind on the bat. A -8 is probably the best option for moving up as jumping up too much in weight can slow down the swing speed. However, if you feel he is able to handle the additional weight, the Marucci CAT 9 -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC95 is a great choice.
Tori
I’m purchasing this bat. I am wondering how long it would take to break in the bat, and what would be the routine to break in the CAT 9? Mikey
This Marucci CAT 9 -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC95 features an alloy barrel and thus does not require a break-in period.
Cameron
Would it be a good idea to heat roll this bat? Mark
We do not recommend heat rolling any bat, especially those like the Marucci CAT 9 -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC95 that feature an alloy barrel.
Cameron
How long does it take to break in? Darren Rodgers
The Marucci CAT 9 -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC95 does not require a break-in period.
Cameron
Trying to decide between drop 5 and 8. My son is 13 and 110 pounds 5 foot 3 inches. Tom
I would recommend a drop 5, since he will be required to swing a BBCOR drop 3 bat as a high schooler.
Ryan
