The Marucci Bat Company™ takes pride in turning top quality wooden baseball bats in the same tradition and precise technique of the earliest bat companies. Every Marucci Bat™ is cut, calibrated, balanced, buffed and lacquered by hand. The Marucci Bat Company™ uses top grade Maple billets cut from selected, naturally grown trees in Pennsylvania forests. This selection process insures the highest possible grade of wood for each bat. The Marucci Bat Company™ bats are 100 percent handmade or turned in small batches from an original design, then finished and detailed by hand. Each model is made to exacting specifications maximizing balance and ease of handling. The Marucci Bat Company™ uses an Ultra Penetrating Stain that provides the best possible finish for your next Marucci Bat. Most impressive is the Bone Rubbing technique that The Marucci Bat Company™ uses. "Boning" bats began in the earliest days of baseball with players like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. These Hall-of-Famers would spend hours in their dugouts rubbing their bats with old cow femur bones. Bone Rubbing closes the wood`s pores, compressing it and making it harder. Marucci uses the same technique on their bats, rubbing before the finish is applied to seal and harden the wood. Just another example of how Marucci takes the same pride in their bats as our baseball heroes once did. Experience the excellence of a Marucci Bat with the CU26YB. Free Shipping!

add_circle_outlinePros: Great feel and balance. Solid feedback at contact. Confidence at the plate with this in my hands, I feel like I can hit as well with this as I do with my Nike Aero CX2! I know I could go yard with this bat from either side of the plate! Thanks Marucci for making a sweet bat!
add_circle_outlinePros: Great bat, good pop, good balance. Used athletic tape to make a cool criss cross grip.
remove_circle_outlineCons: I did break my first one in the first month because I hit off a 70mph cage and hit high up on the neck. Called Just Bats told them what happened and they overn nighted me a replacement. Had my new bat before my next game! AMAMZING!!
add_circle_outlinePros: Exceptional bat! Very well balanced top to bottom with solid feel and a generous sweet spot. Feels true to a drop 5 weight. Used by my 12 year old for pre-season BP and wood bat tournaments. Impressive pop and consistency game after game compared to other bats he has used. Could not be happier with this choice of bats. Highly recommended.
add_circle_outlinePros: Our 12 year old grandson uses wooden bats for practice on travel team. He came out of the cage smiling from ear to ear and had great hits first time. Very well balanced for wood. Definitely recommend.
add_circle_outlinePros: Great bat. I ordered a 27 for my 8u player last season, bats still in great shape. I ordered a 28 this season and the marucci sricker was peeling off out of the box. Sent it bad and I was sent a replacement bat over night in time for my sons 9u wood bat tourney.
remove_circle_outlineCons: None, I think I just got a bat sticker job. Bat was great.
add_circle_outlinePros: Very impressed with this bat. My son is only 7 and I was worried it would be heavy. This bat is very balanced and he has no difficulty swinging this bat. He loves this bat and it has great pop. Really surprised how well this bat performs. We will see how long it lasts. If it continues to perform I will buy another.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Petty but cosmetic. Wish we could have gotten it engraved for him or get a natural wood color.
Marucci Won't disappoint!
add_circle_outlinePros: Bat helped me bat .320+, and it was used by several kids on my team. I used this throughout a travel baseball season, and it didn't disappoint. It felt pretty good in my hands, every game in a 20+ game season. The black paint job looked slick out of the box.
remove_circle_outlineCons: The bat's paint job got a little chipped over the season, but that's really it.
add_circle_outlinePros: Good balance, nice finish. Pretty decent pop for wood bat
remove_circle_outlineCons: I know its a wood bat and basically can brake at any time. But man only lasted around 10 games total. Was originally bought for BP for which it served its purpose. But had to use it in a wood bat game over weekend, and first jam job bat cracked. Finish is pretty but gets dinged up quick and often. Bat only lasted 3 months total with BP and about 10 actual games, expect more for 70$. Bamboo wood purchased still going strong approaching 2 years of hard use, and was only 50$
add_circle_outlinePros: Being new to the whole "wood bat" leagues for the kids as they do here in New York, i saw a couple of kids use this bat so i figured that i would buy one for my son (12) and my daughter (9). The first couple of games both kids consistently hit line drives all over the field. Very nice pop (if you want to say a wood bat has pop anyway).
remove_circle_outlineCons: After a week or so, my daughter gets up to bat and cracks the bat in half and she is only 9. Later that day, i go to my sons game and the same thing happens, he cracks his bat in half. Now, i would semi expect for him to break a bat or two, but my daughter??? Maybe it was a bat batch of wood.
add_circle_outlinePros: i got this bat for christmas and took about 1000 cuts off the tee a week for a couple of months. when it started to get warm i went in the back and had my pitching machine throw real balls and it sounds like a pro bat and has great pop.
add_circle_outlinePros: Kids loved it. First wood bad so not a lot to go on other that it felt great and had pretty good pop!
remove_circle_outlineCons: Broke after 2nd game on what seemed to be a solid hit snapped it between his hands. I believe there was a genuine defect with the particular bat as my boys are ages 10 and 11. However Justbats replaced it free of charge due to it being so new. They were extremely helpful and nice about it.
30" Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Bat
Dickens K. Malave
add_circle_outlinePros: The Marucci bats have a great solid feel when you hit the baseball. The 30" Marucci bat is better handled by the bigger/stronger 12 year olds.
remove_circle_outlineCons: My son is a small 12 year old and the 30" bat seems to be a bit too long and heavy for him. He's sticking with the 29" Marucci for now until he grows a little bigger and stronger in the near future.
add_circle_outlinePros: Good pop..looked great....
remove_circle_outlineCons: ......while it lasted.....through one Little League season. My son is 9 years old and it broke in the first at bat in the season opener. Not sure it is Maple because maple doesn't break like that.
add_circle_outlinePros: Very smooth finish and well balanced. First time using a wood bat and my grandson felt comfortable swinging the bat . He hit the ball very well. Since this was his first wooden bat, I ordered the CU26 in a 28 length vs the 29. The drop 5 was not an issue due to the bat being well balanced. Shipping was quick too.
remove_circle_outlineCons: So far I do not have any cons about the bat.
add_circle_outlinePros: Very good pop. Swings very balanced. My son brags about how good the bat feels in his hands and how good the feedback is. He says its the best bat he's ever swung and he has used several other brands of wood bats.
add_circle_outlinePros: Looks pretty as an ornament in the corner of your kids room.
remove_circle_outlineCons: 2 Broken! This is the second of these Maple Maruccis that my 10 year old son broke in batting practice. We were conscious of bat orientation and it wasn't abused. The first one was broken in the first few weeks of the Fall '17 season and the second was broken in the first practice!! By a skinny little kid, which should never happen! This is a very poor product with inferior material. Marucci should refund!
add_circle_outlinePros: My 12yr old son has been using this bat in his Little League Baseball games for more than a month now. It seems very strong, durable, and well balanced. He loves the way it feels in his hands, the handle is the perfect thickness for his hands. He has chosen this bat over the new sanctioned composite bats. He feels that there is more pop in this bat and it has a true feel to it. We just purchased another one in the next size up.
add_circle_outlinePros: This is a sturdy, balanced and light weight bat for a kid 12 and up, as well as an adult. I am very glad I purchased it.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Unfortunately, I bought this for my 8 year-old-grandson who was not quite ready for it. He needed a smaller bat. (I'm a novice at this!) His dad loves the bat, though, and I know my grandson will be using it in years to come.
add_circle_outlinePros: This is a solid bat for kids who are swinging wood for the first time. The cupped end helps balance the heavier weight the younger crowd is not used to. Bat is being used by several members of the team during BP and games and is holding up well. Keep in mind, drop 5 or 6, not 10-11
remove_circle_outlineCons: Finish does not last long but that is OK....means they are hitting it!
add_circle_outlinePros: This bat has more pop then "USABat" bats. If your son/daughter can weild the -5 to -7 weight, then this is the ticket. Plus the sound just clicks off the barrel. The wood is dense, the weight is ideal and very balanced. Remember, contacdt with the label up!
remove_circle_outlineCons: Your player should have a decent set of swing mechanics in order to square one up wiht this (or any wood bat). They aren't forgiving and if a kid mis-hits it - he'll get a stinger..
add_circle_outlinePros: My son loves this bat!!! he is 12 yrs old with a small frame and I thought he might have trouble swinging it and I was wrong. The bat seems like it is a little bit lighter than -5 and has NO vibration to it. He has a Easton Hyperlight ghost 31 -11 that he has been using (Vibrates like crazy if you don't hit the sweet spot) and I believe that this bat has a better pop to it!! These new USA bats are GARBAGE.. $300 for a bat that hits balls barely out of the infield is a joke!!! he has been using it for practice and is hitting solid line drives with it (most to the fence at 225). My son will be using this bat for fall travel ball, so well shall see how it goes... I think wood is the way to go right now and I will be sticking with Marucci maple!
Thank you for the fast delivery!!!!
add_circle_outlinePros: Nice all around bat. Haven't tried to many wood bats, but my 11yr old hits alot better with this than he does with the USA junk. Good pop. Hit about 500 balls in 2 weeks. Holding up great.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Too light in weight. I know wood bats vary but it ended up being a -7. One of the reasons I wanted a wood bat for my 9-year old was to get one that was heavier than his -8 aluminum USAbat. It's hard to find a youth wood bat that's heavier than the aluminum ones.
add_circle_outlinePros: Good training tool and helps with learning about the feel of Mis hits versus sweet hits. Durability is good thus far and feels really solid. Did not check weight but feels like a true drop -5. Finish is amazing. Looks so good my son was hesitant to use it. He says the pop is not as much as his mako beast but thinks it will get better with time.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Not hot out of the wrapper but it is not a composite bat so not expected.

If you are looking to get the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB then we would recommend getting a 26 inch model as it will be 21 ounces.
How many ounces is the 26 inch?
The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB in a 26 inch model will weigh 21 ounces.
My son is 13 use mako big barrel 30inch what size should he use with this bat
I would suggest swinging the same 30" length in the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB, and would be an approximate 25 ounce weight.
My son is 10 and uses a 30/18. What would be the best size for him? Also, what is the barrel size on this?
The barrel size on the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB is 2 1/4". As for the right size to get a player that is currently using a 30/18, we would recommend getting this bat in a 28 inch model as this bat will be much heavier than his current bat (-5 length to weight ratio).
How durable is this bat?
The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB is a maple bat. These bats are less prone to flaking as is common with a maple bat compared to an ash. Unfortunately, there is no way of telling how long a wood bat can last. It can last as little as one swing or an infinite amount essentially; it all comes down to a player's ability to consistently hit the ball on the barrel. This bat does come with a 30 day warranty, which most youth players will break their wood bats within that time frame, so if/when the bat breaks one could potentially get it replaced by contacting Marucci.
Is this Bat USSSA Legal and if so where can i find this information?
The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB does not feature a USSSA stamp, but since it is made of one piece of wood and no composite materials, it would be legal in most youth leagues.
What size bat for a 13 year old, 75 lbs? Uses a QUATTRO 30'' 20 right now. Thanks.
I would suggest a 30'' or 29'' in the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB. At first the weight difference could be a little heavy, but I suggest using the 30'' because he will get used to that size.
A 13 year old that is 115 lbs and 5'6" tall. What size do you recommend?
Based on the players height and weight, we suggest a 31" model of the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB.
My player is 72 lbs, 4'8" tall, and just turned 10-years old. He is new to a wood bat, what is the appropriate size? His regular bat is a 29/17.
Based on your players height and weight, we suggest a 29" model of the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB. However, players moving to wood for the first time tend to drop down an inch, so a 28" is probably the way to go.
My son is 14 years old (5'7" and 140 lbs). What size wood bat do you recommend?
For a 14 year old player, I would not actually recommend this Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (CU26YB). Since your player is close to high school age, I would recommend an adult wood bat with an approximate -3 length-to-weight ratio. Based on his height and weight, my suggestion would be to look at the 32" option of the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (CU26YB).
My 13 year old son is playing in a wood bat tournament. He is currently using a 31"/23 oz Marucci Cat 7. What size wood bat should he use?
It is had to say what size would be best to get the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB in as he will have to adjust to slightly more weight in the wood bat. Based on his metal bat, it might be best to get a 30 inch Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB as this will be 2 ounce heavier.
My son is 13 years old and just switching from aluminum to wood or BBCOR bats. He is about 5'4" and 100 lbs. What size bat would you recommend?
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat: CU26B Adult in a 31 inch model. The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB is actually a youth wood bat.
What us your recommended size for a 9 year old this is 4"4' 60 lbs?
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 27" Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB.
How heavy would a 30" bat weigh?
A 30" model of this Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (CU26YB) would weigh approximately 25 oz.
What do you recommend for a 5'4" 130 lb 9 yr old boy?
I would recommend the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB in a 31 inch.
Can this bat be used in place of the new USA bat?
It is always best to double check with a league official for your specific league, but technically the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB should be allowed in USA certified leagues. It features a one-piece all maple wood design which makes it legal.
My son is 11 yrs old, 5'1" tall and weighs 81 lbs. What size would fit him better, the 29" or 30" bat?
I would recommend going with the 29'' if getting the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB.
My 11 year old is 5' and 91 lbs. What size do you recommend? Also, how heavy is it?
Based on your players height and weight, we suggest a 30" model of the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB. The bat has an approximate -5 length to weight ratio, so a 30" bat is about 25 oz. Some players using wood for the first time drop down an inch to assist in the transition to a wood bat, so a 29" model would work as well.
My son just turned 12 & has used the composite Mako up to this coming spring season. I bought him a bamboo bat 31' off here (blue one) and he seems to swing it okay! Of course it"s a transition from his Mako in a 30 inch -11 drop weight that he used last season. So what wood should he use? He is 5"3' & just around 100lbs.
Player preference will vary when dealing with types of wood bats. Typically, we see maple wood being the more popular option due to its strength. I would recommend the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB in a 31 inch length for your player.
My son is 8. Uses a 28 and 29 drop 10. New USA rules, we want to go wood. Any suggestions? We are thinking the Chase Utley Marucci.
The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB is a great bat that will offer a balance swing weight feel. With regards to an 8 year old player that is accustomed to swinging a -10 metal bat, this wood bat may not be a good fit due to the -5 length to weight ratio. As well, wood bats will break especially a youth model that has more weight taken out of the wood. When you factor in the inconsistent swing of a youth player then it can become expensive using wood bats exclusively. Would recommend the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB more for training purposes and use a USA approved metal bat for games and practices.
What is the difference between the Marucci Youth Chase Utley wood bat and the Andrew McCutchen bat? Maple vs Cherry? How do they differ? Thank you.
The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB features a 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter. The Marucci Limited Edition Andrew McCutchen Maple Wood Baseball Bat: CUTCH22CG Grey/Cherry Adult features a 2 5/8 barrel diameter and is comparable to the i73 turn model. If you are looking for a bat for a younger player, the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB might be the better option.
My son is going to be 11, is 77 lbs. and 5 feet tall. He used a 31 inch Mako last year, and it was hard for him to get around with although he's growing quickly. I am worried that with the new bat standards many bats will be too heavy and was hoping if he practiced with a wooden bat it would be helpful. What do you think of this? And what size?
Practicing with a wood bat definitely wouldn't hurt. Since it will be heavier, it will build swing strength, and wood isn't all that forgiving, so it will help teach him where to hit the ball properly. Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 30" Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB.
My son is 10 yrs old and 65 lbs. He currently swings a Louisville catalyst 29 inch drop -11. Do you recommend a 28 or 29 inch?
Based on he age and weight and the face he currently swings a 17 ounce bat I would recommend the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB in a 28".
With the C. Utley bat - what is the weight of a 29inch bat?
The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB has an approximate -5 length to weight ratio. Therefore a 29" bat would be roughly 24oz. Wood bats do tend to vary by an ounce or two because the wood will vary from bat to bat.
What would the weight of a 31 inch bat be in this bat model?
This bat is roughly a -5 drop, so a 31" would weigh about 26 oz. It won't be exact due to varying densities of the wood however.
What"s a bat would you recommend for a 10U big barrel? My son is 9 & swings a 29 inch 19 oz or 29' 20oz.
If he was swinging a 29"/20 ounce bat I would think he would be good with a 29" Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB. To make a more accurate recommendation through we would need his height and weight.
What do you recommend for a 4"9' 81 lbs. player? Seeking large barrel wood bat for Little League. He has a aluminum USA stamped 29' 19 oz
Most youth wood bats, like the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB, will feature a small barrel at 2 1/4" in diameter. Based on your player's height and weight, we would recommend getting the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB in a 30 inch. This bat will weigh 25 ounces so it all comes down to whether or not you feel he can handle the additional 6 ounces.
Do wood bats see a decline in performance with use like an aluminum bat or does performance stay relatively the same until it breaks?
Wood bats will have the same level of performance until they break.
Is this bat Little League approved for the 2018 season?
This bat will not have the USA Baseball stamp that most leagues require, but they way we understand the rules in regards to wooden bats is that any solid maple, ash, or birch bat does not require the certification stamp to be legal, so this bat would be allowed. For further clarification I would check with your coach or league commissioner.
What would be the best size for my 8-9 year old who plays on a coach pitch team?
At that age, I would recommend getting the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB in a 26 or 27 inch. However, it may still be a little too heavy for him as the 26 inch would be approximately 21 ounces.
My son is 11, 4 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 80 pounds. Based on his height and weight, what size will be best for him?
Based on your son's height and weight, I would recommend getting the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB in 29''.
Will this bat be allowed in a wood bat tournament for travel ball?
The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB will be legal if it is a youth wood bat tournament, if it is an adult wood bat tournament (14 or above) I would go with a -3 adult model.
Is the 28 inch CU26 allowed by new USABat rules even though there are no stamps on bat, specifically in 8U Dizzy Dean tournament?
Yes, the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB will be allowed in all USA play because it is a one piece wood bat.
My grandson is 5' tall, 130lbs and he is 12 1/2 yrs old going into Juniors this fall. What size would be best for him? He was using a 31" metal bat. Should I get an adult or a youth?
Given your player's specifications, I would still recommend a 31" bat. Choosing between either this Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB or an adult model will determine the drop weight of the bat. This bat is a (-5) which will provide a lighter option than an adult model which would be a (-3.)
My son is 13yrs old, about 95lbs. What size would you suggest?
The length of a bat is generally going to hinge more directly on the height of a player as opposed to age and weight. However, I would recommend something around the likes of a 31" Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: CU26YB bat given those specifications.
What is the weight of the 28in?
The 28" version of this Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (CU26YB) will have an approximate weight of 23 oz.
