Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB153

This 5150 is the bat that brought Rawlings into the BBCOR scene when the certification was first implemented. It is still kicking today as a high performing and reputable BBCOR bat.

Bat Benefits

This 5150 BBCOR bat is a one-piece, all-alloy deisgned bat. It will feature a balanced feel, but when compared alongside the Quatro BBCOR or Velo ACP BBCOR bats, it will probably feel a little heavier towards the barrel. Because of that, it would probably be an excellent choice of bat for a power hitter who likes the stiff feel of a one-piece bat, but isn't quite ready for a truly end loaded bat just yet.

One last note to mention is that Rawlings introduced a new barrel profile for this year's release of the 5150 that should increase the sweet spot of the bat (and even help the bat be controlled easier too).

Warranty

Rawlings knows that they are in the business of making customers happy and loyal. Because of that, they offer a twelve (12) month warranty on this bat. If you buy this bat from JustBats and have a warranty issue with it within 12 months of the purchase date, be sure and reach out to the Bat Experts from JustBats. The Bat Experts understand the warranty process for these bats and will get you all the info and directions needed to begin the warranty replacement process with Rawlings.

Pros: As a 8th grader making the transition to bbcor I was nervous getting this bat because it was endloaded but honestly if you have a semi strong guy this bat is PERFECT I love it. Last night I hit a 320 finger over the fence I will never buy a bat that is not a 5150 again.

Cons: It’s endloaded but you get used to it.

Good start for this bat Mike Coach

Pros: My son noticed a bigger sweet spot than his previous Rawlings Quattro and its definitely more end loaded, which we expected coming from a two piece. So far its met our expectations based on previous reviews.

Cons: Our experience with Alloys compared to composite is the vibration when you miss that sweet spot.

Would you recommend this 33 inch 5150 or a Velo 33 inch for an 8th grader, 6'1" 160 lbs and gaining weight and height?
Matthew martin
It all comes down to the player's preference and what they prefer. Both the Velo and 5150 are one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights but the Velo, due to its composite end cap design, will be more balanced than the Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB153.
Cameron
What’s the difference between the 2020 and the 2021 version of the 5150?
James
The 2021 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB153 will have a slightly end-loaded swing while the 2020 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBZ53 is balanced. The 2021 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB153 also features a redesigned barrel with an increased sweet spot and improved control.

Rawlings is a major manufacturer of competitive team sports equipment and apparel for baseball, basketball, and football, as well as licensed MLB, NFL, and NCAA retail products. Rawlings is a major supplier to professional, collegiate, interscholastic, and amateur organizations worldwide, including the Official Baseball Supplier to Major League Baseball.

The first real innovation in glove making occurred in 1912 when Rawlings Sporting Goods Company introduced the "Sure Catch" glove, which was "endorsed by leading players all over the country." The Sure Catch was a one-piece glove with sewn-in finger channels and looked better suited for a duck's foot than a man's hand. Catchers' mitts used at the time were large and bulky with a single leather thong passing for a web.

In 1920, Bill Doak, a journeyman pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, approached Rawlings with an idea for improving the baseball glove from a mere protective device to a genuine aid in fielding. The "Bill Doak" model was so revolutionary that it stayed in Rawlings' line until 1953. Its key feature was a multi-thong web laced into the first finger and thumb, which created for the first time in baseball's young life, a natural pocket.

In 1925, Rawlings unveiled a three-fingered fielder's glove, and ten years later improved the Bill Doak model with a two-piece leather web. At the same time, the "T" web became a rage for first basemen's mitts. The pocket underwent a pronounced change in 1941 when the Trapper Mitt, also known as the Claw, appeared. The "Deep Well" pocket was so unique that Rawlings quickly patented it. The design was improved in 1950 by adding a leather piece across the top. Another significant creation occurred in 1948 with the three-fingered Playmaker. A five-fingered fielder's model, with all fingers laced together, provided greater pocket control.

The six-fingered Trap-Eze evolved in the 1960's. In more recent years, Rawlings produced the Fastback design, which gives a glove a snugger fit, greater extension, and overall control. The Holdster is a slot through which a finger can be extended for additional protection from impacts on the pocket. Then, there is the Edge-U-Cated Heel with its extended U-shaped lacing and the Pro H Web and much-copied Basket Web.

Some of Rawlings's more recent glove innovations also include the unique Spin-Stopper design which reduces ball spin when the ball hits the glove, and the Cantilever glove design feature that provides a cushioned area between the hand and the glove's palm area. In all, Rawlings has produced and patented more functionally innovative glove features and designs than that of any other glove manufacturer. The result is that the modern baseball glove is much larger, more comfortable, better padded, and made to last far longer than its ancestors. It is not uncommon to see today's Major League players wearing the same Rawlings glove they wore during their college playing days. In fact, Rawlings is the #1 glove in the major leagues. Rawlings maintains about 65 models of baseball and softball mitts and gloves in its line. The prototypes of virtually all of them have been field-tested by professionals before entering a sporting goods dealer's inventory.
