Description

Marucci CAT 9 -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC98

The Marucci CAT is the bat to use for lighting up USSSA fields this season. One-piece, all-alloy and a -8 size will make it a popular choice for batters looking to move from the -10 size of bat.

Bat Benefits

The CAT 9 is all about the new AZR aluminum material. It undergoes an intensive 3 stage thermal treatment process. And when the alloy material comes out on the other side of that process; it is equipped to deliver better feel, more forgiveness and high performance!

Don't forget that even though this is a one-piece bat, it swings nearly as comfortably as any 2-piece bat out there. This is because it is outfitted with the 2nd edition of the AV2 Anti-Vibration knob. This knob eliminates nearly all vibration that gets down to a player's hands (even if you don't get it on the sweet spot).

Warranty

Marucci is in the business of helping customers. Because of that, they offer a twelve (12) month warranty on this bat that extends from the date of the purchase. If you buy the bat from JustBats and experience a warranty issue within 12 months of the date it was bought, please reach out to our resident Bat Experts. They will assist in getting you the info to begin a warranty shipment to Marucci so your bat can be replaced.

Dented 2, broke 2 Scott Parent

Pros: When we had them, my son loved hitting his Cat8/9s. Great feel.

Cons: Dented the first time half way through the season. Marucci replaced it and it dented badly in 2 months of offseason work. Replacement broke in the handle. Marucci replaced with a Cat9. The barrel cracked right in the middle. Not sure what to do now. My oldest has 2 and loves them. My youngest can’t make it a season without issues (he takes care of them. No abuse)
