Description

Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9 Releases on August 31st! - 

The BBCOR CAT 9 is loaded with new innovation and is rocking the BBCOR world again. Get your one-piece, all-alloy CAT 9 bat today!

Bat Benefits

Marucci has outfitted this bat with some impressive advancements. First off, there is new AZR Alloy on the bat. This alloy has undergone a 3-stage thermal treatment process. Because of that process, the new alloy should deliver the trifecta of (1) Better Feel (2) More Forgiveness & (3) More Performance. In addition, the AZR material should still display that same impressive strength that we have come to expect from CAT bats. Next, you'll want to take notice of the Longitudinal Groove System (LGS) that removes extra weight from the thickest part of the barrel and then allows that barrel to flex a little bit. This LGS system ultimately bumps up the performance of the ball off the bat. 

Overall, these two new features are wrapped up in the one-piece, all-alloy design of the CAT bats that so many players have come to love. And don't forget about the sleek, black color.

Warranty

Marucci offers a twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty on the bat. If you purchase the bat from JustBats and sense that something is wrong with the bat within 12 months from the purchase, please reach out to our Bat Experts. They will be able to get you set up with the info and materials to send the bat to Marucci for a replacement bat!

Really good Joaquin Player

Pros: Using in fall ball and it has great pop, decent endload and huge sweet spot. Hopefully it is as durable as they say. No vibration on the hands, only on bad miss hits ofc

Cons: None just don’t out it in the balanced section of bats, it should be in the slightly end loaded section.

Here kitty - kitty... DD Parent

Pros: Very consistent for a good hitter, solid transfer if a batter has power... A little more rigid in the pop vs the Cat 8..., I believe Marucci speaks to that in their advertisement(s).

Cons: I'd like to be able to customize the bat with more options from the factory..., colors, graphics, etc.., that said, it's made to hit.., not model..!

Best Alloy BBCOR bat on the Market Paul D Parent

Pros: Honestly, I don't know why anyone would buy a different alloy BBCOR besides the Cat. Every year this is the best BBCOR. Biggest sweet spot I've found and no sting at all. Pop is top of the line.

Cons: None

My son loves it! Tamara Parent

Pros: So far it is a great bat!

Cons: It is rough to tell someone to pay more for the Cat 9 over the previous edition due to it being such a similar bat (unless they just want the latest bat out).

do you have a drop 3 32inch in this bat?
Ken
Yes this Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9 will be a -3 and will be available in the 32 inch option.
Ryan
Will the CAT 9 bbcor be as balanced as the Marucci MCBC7L Cat 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat 2 5/8" Black Limited Edition bat?
Marty
Yes this Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9 will feature the same balanced feel as past CAT models!
Ryan
How much of an improvement will this be over CAT 8 or is it more cosmetic change only?
Coach Brad
Since the Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9 has not been released yet, it is impossible to say how consumers will rate this bat in comparison to the CAT 8. With that being said, the major change to this bat is the AZR alloy - undergoes a 3-stage thermal treatment process. This creates a more responsive microstructure that results in a better feel, more forgiveness & more performance.
Cameron
You're saying more performance with the CAT 9. But how much performance can it have if it is restricted BBCOR standard? Would this bat be more balanced than the 2020 5150?
Gee
Marucci is marketing the Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9 has having a more responsive barrel but would not imagine the performance will change dramatically compared to what they have released in the past. As far as how the bat will rate, in terms of balanced swing weight, compared to the Rawlings 5150, it would be hard to say.
Cameron
Is it good to use and how long can the bat last without breaking?
Michael Gutierrez
The Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9 is a great BBCOR bat to consider. How long it might last a player before denting would be hard to say as there are too many factors that can play a part with regards to the longevity of a BBCOR bat.
Cameron
Do you make this bat in a 29/26?
Chad austin
The Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9 is not made in a 29 inch 26 ounce model.
Cameron
Is this bat end-loaded?
Shane
No, this Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC9) has a balanced swing weight.
Frank
Is this bat okay to be used in cold temps?
Kassey
Yes, the Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9 can be used in colder temperatures. Anything above 55 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal for any bat, regardless of whether the barrel is composite or alloy, like this CAT 9.
Cameron
What would you recommend from a size perspective for a 17 year old that is 5’7 and 165? Strong gap to gap hitter with solid pop.
MH
Based on your player's height and weight, we recommend a 32" bat!
Lauren
Should all BBCOR bats have the same exit velocity given all other variables being the same? Given this why are some bats $150 and others up to $500? Wouldn’t they all perform the same?
Mike Nickol
All BBCOR bats will have to meet the same certifications as far as exit velocity. However, their performance will not all be the same as this can change based on material, sweet spot and making sure you are choosing the best bat to fit the style of player. This is also why you will see a range in price. Two-piece bats tend to be a little more expensive and material plays a factor as well.
Tori
Would you give the edge to the CAT 9 or Omaha?
Tyson
Both the Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9 and the Omaha are great one-piece alloy bats. Both bats offer vibration control on miss hits but would give the edge there to the CAT 9.
Cameron
Can this bat get a USA Baseball sticker?
Caleb Thompson
No, one cannot get a USA Baseball sticker to put on this bat. With that being said, the Marucci CAT 9 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC9, since it is a BBCOR bat, can be used in USA leagues.
