Marucci CAT 9 Composite Pastime -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCCP98A

Pick up a Cat 9 Composite Pastime bat in the drop 8 size! Help celebrate our nation and the great game of baseball!

Bat Benefits

Marucci has committed to building a high-quality composite baseball bat! It all starts with their MDX Composite barrel material that is composed of composite fibers laid in many different directions. By laying the fibers in multiple directions, Marucci is able to make the MDX composite extremely responsive. 

For this two-piece bat, they attach the MDX composite barrel to the composite handle by way of the Outer Locking System (OLS) connector piece. This OLS piece creates a bigger and more pronounced connection point on this Cat 9 Composite bat, but it should allow for a stiffer feel at contact due to it locking the handle and barrel together from the outside in. As well, this connector piece will prevent most vibrations from getting down to a player's hands.

Drop 8 bats are a great selection for players aged 11-13 years old. Once a player starts feeling like a drop 10 bat is a little too light, the drop 8 size is usually the next best move!

Warranty

Marucci is a true industry leader in the baseball bat realm. And they understand that when you’re a leader, you have to help out customers. Because of that, they extend a twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty period on this bat. If you get the bat from us and notice a warranty issue with it during the first year from the purchase date, please contact the JustBats Bat Experts. They are trained in warranty knowledge and will make sure that you are able to do a successful warranty return with Marucci.

Massive homer C D Parent

Pros: Absolutely amazing bat, first time he used it in a game he hit a massive homer (after the breakin of course). Kid loves the flex, the feel, the slight endload, basically everything. Just as much pop as the CF zen.

Cons: Price. But you know you have to pay big bucks for a good bat.

Have a question about the Marucci CAT9 Composite Pastime -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCCP98A? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Is there a break-in period on this bat? If so, what is recommended?
Brian DeSoto
Yes this Marucci CAT9 Composite Pastime -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCCP98A is a composite barrel bat so it will require a break in period. We typically recommend 100-200 swings.
Ryan
How long till it is broke in?
Bob
To break in the Marucci CAT9 Composite Pastime -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCCP98A, we recommend about 50 swings either off of a tee or by soft toss with a rotation of the barrel after each swing.
Cameron
Is the composite or the regular hotter? Is there a difference in the regular CAT9 Connect and the Pastime other than appearance?
Oliver smith
Within the Marucci lineup, their one-piece alloy bat tends to sell better than the Marucci CAT9 Composite Pastime -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCCP98A and their Connect bat. Unfortunately, there is no data to suggest which one would offer a higher performance. As for the Pastime models, this was a limited production colorway design. There is no difference when comparing the regular CAT9 Composite -8 to the Marucci CAT9 Composite Pastime -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCCP98A, other than colorway.
Cameron
Would this bay be good for a 9 yr old he felt the 27 -10 was to light
Edwin
Yes, If he thought the 27 -10 bat was to light then the Marucci CAT9 Composite Pastime -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCCP98A would be a good option to try and see if its right for him. The -8 age recommendations are (10-13) year olds. Since he's 9; if you think he's ready for a -8 I would recommend this bat.

My son has a CAT8 right now Allloy. My question is will hitting with a composite bat give him more feet. He's got a bunch of stand up doubles. If he had 20 more feet to the hits it would be over the fence. Will this do that?
Aaron F
Great question, so ultimatly, the compression of the bat is limited by the leagues. So, the composite bat will not give off any higher exit velos. The composite does have a different feel to it, larger sweet spot, and it typically nicer to hit (stings your hands less), but aside from that the composite and the alloy should provide the same results when solid contact is made.
