As Rawlings continues to impress players of all ages with their gloves, it's their bats that are winning over new fans. This year, one of Rawlings' mainstays returns in BBCOR form! The Rawlings Plasma has garnered a loyal following over the years of players that love its performance. The Plasma features a one-piece construction and is made from Rawlings' high-strength Aerospace Plasma Alloy. This durable alloy allows for some of the thinnest walls in the game, giving the Plasma incredible trampoline effect! One of the most common complaints about many BBCOR bats is that the rings and inserts meant to dull the performance, break off inside the barrel and rattle around. They also add weight to the end of the barrel. That's why Rawlings has introduced Precision-Optimized Performance (pOp) Technology to the Plasma BBCOR. pOp Technology allows Rawlings to meet BBCOR standards without using rings or inserts in the barrel. This allows for more barrel flex, a much larger sweet spot, and ultimately more pop! This also gives the Plasma a reduced barrel weight for increased swing speed! There's a reason more than 100 top collegiate baseball teams are using Rawlings BBCOR bats... because they're the hottest BBCORs on the market! Rawlings: Maximum Performance Where It Matters Most on the Field! The Rawlings Plasma is BBCOR Certified and approved for high school and collegiate play. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

Pros: - Solid balanced bat, NOT end-weighted - Low Price - Good feel - Cool 'Tron-like' graphics and satin finish - decent 'ping' sound - gives the 5150 a run for its money

Cons: - Grip. Peeled off after one session of hitting. Re-wrapped and taped over it, nice now.

Pros: My 13 year old loves this bat! He used it at Triple Crown Sports Border Wars in NC, & hit 360-380 foot bombs-no embellishment! He reported that it has incredible pop, was evenly balanced, no sting, & was just an overall "beasty" bat!

Cons: After using it for 1 middle school game & 6 travel ball tournament games, the grip started to unwind at the top. We wrapped it back with some sports tape, & kept it moving.

Some Guy

Pros: A friend of mine got an Easton Typhoon for somewhere between $70-80. For just 30 bucks more, I got this bat, and the difference is insane. His Typhoon feels like it has much more weight even though it's also 32/29 due to its top-heaviness. The Rawlings Plasma feels brilliantly balanced. It feels light, but when you make contact? Watch out. For the price, I'd definitely recommend the Plasma. Hey, it's also a pretty good looking and less commonly used bat too, so that doesn't hurt!

Cons: None ... although I've seen plenty of people complain about the grip peeling. REMEMBER: Don't use this bat when it's colder than 60 degrees. Just a friendly tip.

Good bat for the price C22baseball player

Pros: It is legal for school ball. I was trying to find a cheap bat for school ball, it had to be a -3 BBCOR bat. I wanted a 30/27 and I came across this. It's really hot right out of the wrapper. Pretty good pop. Really low price, just as good as some $200 bats I've had.

Cons: It gets scraped easily, and if you hit it off the inside part of the bat it stings a little and the ball will only go a few feet.

Terrific bat Xpress12 parent

Pros: I was looking for an inexpensive BBCOR bat to transition into middle school baseball. This bat has a really nice sweet spot and is well-balanced. I suppose I might have been able to buy a little more 'pop' but this bat has performed beyond expectations. It has more to do with the kid swinging it than the bat itself. And I don't buy into the whiny "stinging" or "vibration." If you square it up, it doesn't hurt; if you get jammed or get it out on the end, it's going to sting a bit. That's baseball; it's not the bat's fault! BTW, my son liked the matte finish and the overall look of it...

Cons: None. This is a great bat and a screaming deal.

Have a question about the Rawlings Plasma BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBCPLA? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Where is the BBCOR label on this bat? In other words when an umpire inspects it how would he know?
jpe
The BBCOR stamp is on the side of the barrel.
Mark
How does the Plasma BBCOR compare to the 5150 BBCOR?
etch
They are similar in performance. The 5150 may have a little bit more pop.
Mark
How is it's balance, and would you say this is more for a contact hitter or a power hitter?
Murph
This bat has a balanced weight. Since this bat is a one piece design this is more for contact hitters.
Kris
how easy does this bat break
Arod
Good question...one I do not know the answer to yet. I have yet to hear any negative feedback regarding the durability of this bat. So far, this has proven to be pretty durable.
John
i have the plasma and i wanted to know why this bat performs better then the 5150 from what ive seen
mrl
That's good to hear. We have not heard much feedback on the Plasma. Both bats will be very good bats will solid pop.
Kris
Im more of a contact hitter but I do every few at bats get a big hit. Looking at both the 5150 and this bat, in your opinion, which bat would be better suited for me?
tburns
Contact hitters usually use a two piece bat as there will be more flex. A one piece bat will give the player more power. The 5150 and Plasma would be good bats for you.
Kris
is the bat top heavy?
tom
It is fairly balanced.
Mark
Does this bat have good pop? Should i get the Rawlings Plasma or the Easton XL3? Which has more pop?
Uh... OK
Based on customer feedback and personal experience, I would give the XL3 an edge in performance. However, the XL3 will be more end-loaded than the Plasma. If you have never hit with an end-loaded bat before, it may be a little different from what you're used to. I would recommend finding one in a store somewhere so you can see how it feels.
John
I'm a power hitter if i hit the ball its big, do you think this bat would be good for someone like me if not any recomendations?
big G
Yes, the plasma is going to be a stiff bat with lots of pop. It should be a good fit for a power hitter
Sean
Based on customer feedback or your own experience, is the Rawlings 5150 better than the Rawlings Plasma on pop? Weight distribution?
OK
The 5150 is going to have a higher quality alloy and the weight is evenly distributed.
Kara
i'm 4'9 85 lbs but need a -3, what size bat should i use?
matt
I would go as light as you can with either a 29 or 30 inch bat.
Derek
I am a HS Freshman and I am looking for a good BBCOR with good pop and feel without having to spend hundreds of dollars. Does this bat have good pop and give good performance? Is this bat better than the Anderson Ignite or Marucci Cat 5?
uh..ok
If your not looking to spend too much, this will be a good option. This bat has very good pop and will be a durable choice.
KG
My son wants the 5150 because he thinks its better, but I dont that is worth the extra $150.00 over the Plasma, which from my research seems to be very close to equal. What do you think?
Rupe
Actually, they are similar, mostly cosmetic differences. But the basic design and materials are the same.
Linda
how is this bat compared to the rawlings 5150?
tank
Both bats are quality bats, but the 5150 will be slightly higher performing.
Eddie
I am looking for a solid mid-range bat for my 14 year old, since we play a lot of games in cold weather here I think aluminum is better than composite. Seems like the Plasma matches up, any other similar bat you would recommend?
NE Portland Guy
This is a good bat, but I would also suggest looking at the Cat5, the Black, the Rip-it or the 5150. All of these bats will have an alloy barrel and will have very good pop.
KG
What is a better bat: the 2012 Rawlings Plasma or the 2012 Louisville Warrior?
bucks23
Both are good options, I personally like the balanced feel of the Warrior
Sean
Which bat is the most balanced (least end loaded)...Rawlings Plasma or Easton S3?
Lax dad too
The S3 will be more balanced
Sean
would a 30in/28oz bat be ok for a middle chool ballplayer?
bob
If he is looking at a BBCOR bat, the 30 inch bat would be 27 ounces. If he is a strong kid, he would definitely benefit in the long run to get used to it now.
Linda
I am in Australia and we don't yet have BBCOR regulations. Is this bat as good as Fuel -5 or Plasma -8 non BBCOR? I have a 15 yo and want to buy a bat for him. This seems good on paper, but is it harder to hit? I don't want to dent his confidence with the wrong choice.
brf
It will be as good as the Fuel and Plasma -8. However, we don't ship out of the United States.
Kara
I'm a power hitter. Would you recommend Rawlings Plasma, Marucci Cat 5, or Rawlings 5150?
AJA
This is a very good bat that is balanced and has good pop. The Cat 5 and the 5150 have been very good bats also and have been getting great reviews. I would go with either one of these bats.
KT
i love the sound of the bat but it cost sooooo little is it a good bat or just a cheap one????
chilidog15
The Plasma is a pretty good bat and you definitely get a lot of bang for your buck compared to other bats around $100. It has an above average sweetspot and is great for all types of hitters. It may not be as high performing as some of the more expensive bats out there, but under $150, it's hard to beat.
TJ
Is the BBCOR actually stamped on it or stickered
Widefield 15
It is going to be stamped BBCOR on the bat
Sean
Which bat is easier to swing the Cat 5 or the Plasma?
Dragon
Both bats are going to be a one piece aluminum alloy. They are both going to have a equall swing weight. It comes down to what brand you prefer
Ryan
How is the pop on this bat compared to the 5150?
derekjames
The 5150 is made of a little better quality of alloy than the Plasma. I would give the edge to the 5150.
Kara
Is this bat 2 5/8" barrel and is it good for 7th grader?
devon
This bat does have a 2 5/8" barrel. This bat is BBCOR certified, will have an alloy barrel and a balanced feel. This is a good BBCOR bat and good for a 7th grader needing a BBCOR bat.
Kris
I'm stuck between the Plasma and the TPX Warrior. If I need a balanced bat that is not top heavy and has a lot of pop, which one should I go with?
goyanks
Since both of these bats are similar in design (a one piece alloy bat), they will perform pretty similarly. Both of these bats are pretty balanced and neither one really has a "top heavy" feel. They are both pretty durable bats and will have good pop. You can't really go wrong with either bat!
Jennifer
Which bat is better? The Rawlings Plasma or the Demarini Versus (both BBCOR)
John
Both of these bats are good choices and will work great for different types of hitters. The Versus is a two piece design which will usually be better suited for contact hitters, while the Plasma is a one piece that is usually better suited for power hitters.
Jennifer
Is this bat legal for 13year old baseball babe ruth league or cal ripken league?
Chris
Yes. This bat is 100% legal in the Babe Ruth League.
Tyler
What's the difference between the Plasma and the 5150?
d-man
The 5150 uses a higher quality alloy than the 2012 Rawlings Plasma BBCOR. The 5150 will be more durable.
Kara
Which bat is better this or the rip-it protocol II
hunter
Both the Rawlings Plasma and Rip-It are great bats. They will be very comparable in performance, however the Rip-it is made of a stronger Alloy that will help with durability.
Ryan
Is this a big barrel?
big z
The 2012 Rawlings Plasma BBCOR has a 2 5/8 in. barrel diameter. The Plasma is a big barrel bat.
Nick
Which bat would be better for a power hitter going into High School the Rawlings Plasma BBCOR or the TPX Omaha BBCOR?
Cool Guy
Both bats are one piece alloy and balanced with large sweet spots, so both would be good for a power hitter.
Damon
We are searching for a -3 BBCOR for my son who will have to swing one for the first time in the fall. He is about 5'3"- 5'4" and about 120 lbs. but I am sure he will grow some by next spring season and looking at 31" 28 oz. I have narrowed down to Rawlings Plasma, Louisville Warrior and Easton Surge. My son is a good contact hitter, beginning to drive the ball regularly but not a power hitter. I want a bat that he will be able to swing effectively considering he has used a -8 for the last 2 years. Which of these 3 would serve him well for the next year or two? Thanks.
MPH
Based on the information you provided, I would suggest the Easton Surge because it is a two-piece bat. Two-piece bats are going to have some flex to it when it is swung, which will help with bat whip and bat speed.
Nick K.
my son is 12 5'5 170.would this bat be good for him when he plays babe ruth league next year.if not what bat would you suggest
jim bats
The 2012 Rawlings Plasma BBCOR: BBCPLA Adult bat may be a little too big for a 12 year old. Rawlings makes great bats, and the 2012 Rawlings 5150 Alloy: SL51A5 Senior League would be a great choice.
Tyler
I'm starting baseball soon and was wondering which bat is better the Worth Copperhead or the Plasma?
Bigbatta
The Rawlings Plasma BBCOR is one of the best alloy bats for the price.
Kara
Bought this bat but I have now noticed that it does not have BBCOR stamped on it. I'm skeptical that umpires will accept that it is BBCOR just becuase I read it on the website. Am I missing something here? The bat model is BBCPLA.
Tim
All the Rawlings Plasma BBCOR: BBCPLA Adult bats we have in stock feature the BBCOR stamp. I recommend contacting our customer service department at 1-866-321-2287.
John
Can this bat be compared to the Marucci Black 2?
REABBA12
It is tough to compare the Rawlings Plasma BBCOR (BBCPLA) and the Marucci Black 2 BBCOR (MCBB20) because they are so different by design. The Plasma is a one piece alloy and the Black 2 is a two-piece hybrid design that has a composite handle and alloy barrel. The Black 2 will have more flex and sting prevention while the Plasma will be stiffer which can be preferred for some power hitters.
Patrick
I am 5'3 and weigh 95 pounds. I'm a contact hitter that is looking for a balanced bat with good pop. What bats do you recommend that aren't too pricey?
patrick
The Rawlings Plasma BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBCPLA) would be a great choice for you. It features a balanced swing weight, which will be great to work on bat speed and bat control. It would be an awesome addition for a player looking for a high performance bat at a great price.
Tessa
When I watched the video, I saw the USSSA 1.15 logo on it. I am wondering if it is BBCOR certified?

The Rawlings Plasma BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBCPLA) features the BBCOR stamp and is BBCOR certified.

I am a junior in high school. I am usually batting cleanup spot for my team. I'm 6'1" and 260 lbs. I want this bat, but its only available in a 34/31. Would a 34/31 be good for me or should I get a different bat in a different size?
homerun hitter
Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 33" bat. However, a 34" model in the Rawlings Plasma BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBCPLA) will work for you as well because of the balanced swing weight.
Jason
I am 6'1" and 250 lbs. I usually bat cleanup. Would the 34" be a good option for me?
bunny
Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 33" model in the Rawlings Plasma BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBCPLA). However, if you think you can handle the bigger size, the 34" will work for you as well.
Jason
I'm 5'7" and 120 lbs. I hit lead-off and some 2-spot. Would you recommend this bat for me?
jeremiah#23
For a lead-off and 2-spot hitter, I would recommend a two-piece balanced bat. This would allow for a little more bat speed. The Rawlings Plasma BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBCPLA) is a one-piece full-alloy bat featuring a balanced swing weight. The BBCPLA will be a little more stiff through the zone than a two-piece model.

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 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.
