Description

Sam Bat Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: LLCD1 Cherry/Black

Pick up a wood bat for your young player. This bat is made of a single piece of maple wood and should be allowed for use in just about any league!

Bat Benefits

The 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter keeps this bat light enough for young players to use (when compared to adult style wood bats). However, be sure to note that it will have an approximate -4 to -5 length-to-weight ratio. This will make it heavier than a lot of the composite or aluminum bats out there. However, wood bats are excellent training tools for young kids as they promote strength in a player's swing and they encourage players to hit the ball on the sweet spot of the bat.

If you have further questions about selecting a wood bat, reach out to the Bat Experts from JustBats. Give them a CALL at 1-866-321-2287, an EMAIL at support@justbats.com or do a quick CHAT by selecting the chat box in the bottom right corner of this page.

Big Maple Difference Wally Gator parent

Pros: My 10u slugger plays in a yearly wood bat tourney. In years past I'd get him ash bats because it's lighter to get it closer to his Easton bats, but he'd break'em all within 6 months. I decided this past winter to get him this SamBat for cage work and a custom model for his tournament. He loves them both! The black cage bat is a workhorse and the game bat is almost too beautiful to hit with. The maple is rock hard and extremely durable. He looks forward to practice sessions knowing they'll be sting-free and sounding like the pros.

Cons: Yellow cage balls leave marks on the black barrel. Not dents, but impressions from the balls, almost 3D like. Tough to remove and looks strange, but doesn't appear to effect performance.

Robert
How does this compare with adult version in terms of quality? I understand it's lighter, but are the blanks the same? Or is the youth model made of an inferior wood? I wouldn't mind using a 32" in 16U wood tourneys, if the only difference is weight.
BabsRuth

Kara

This bat doesn't need to be BBCOR certified since it is a wood bat, correct?
brian
Correct, the Sam Bat Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (LLCD1 Walker/Black) does not need a BBCOR certification stamp on the bat. Only composite wood bats or wood bats that combine two or more wood types need a BBCOR stamp. However, this is a Youth bat with a 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter and wood bat leagues may still require certain length to weight ratios and barrel diameters.
Tom
What is he weight of the 31 inch bat?

Which bat would you recommend for an 11 year old kid who is 5 feet tall and 96 pounds? He has been using the Cutch 30 in -5 but will like to try Sam bat.
Deme
Based upon your player's height and weight, I would recommend using a 30" Sam Bat Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: LLCD1 Walker/Black. This particular model is made from the top 5% of hard maple prime grade timber and would be an excellent option to consider.
John P.
Will this bag be legal for play in Dixie Youth under the new USABat standard fkr 2018?
Josh
I would advise you to check with your league but from what we have been hearing I think any bat used in the Dixie Youth League must have the USABat standard on the bat.
Cade
Bought a Viper Ultralight Birch Wood Youth bat in the 31" length. Looking to purchase a Maple wood bat. Is this bat comparable?
MA
In regard to being light in weight, this Sam Bat Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat (LLCD1 Walker/Black) will not be the same as the Viper Ultrlight Birch bat. That birch bat has around a -8 to -10 length-to-weight ratio where this Sam Bat has an approximate -4 to -5 length-to-weight ratio. Typically, your maple wood bats will always be the heaviest models out there.
Ben

My son's coach recommends a drop 5 bat. It's a 15u competitive travel team. Should the barrel be 2 1/2 inches in diameter? Is there that diameter at drop 5?
siggy
A -5 youth baseball bat, such as the Sam Bat Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: LLCD1 Walker/Black, will feature a 2 1/4" barrel diameter. Adult wood baseball bats (-3) would feature the 2 1/2" barrel diameter.

Is this bat USA approved for Little League use?
cc baseball
The Sam Bat Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: LLCD1 Walker/Black does not feature the USA Baseball stamp but can be used in Little League since this bat is a one-piece maple model.
Cameron
Is this bat USA approved for Little League?
Yong

About the Brand

Sam Bat grew out of careful research and a thorough knowledge of eastern hardwoods. It also developed from a simple question by Bill MacKenzie, then of the Colorado Rockies: "We're just breaking too many bats. Do you think you could come up with an answer to that?"  The solution was fairly obvious. But the answer led to a pile of work and a crash course on bats. The reading list ranged from "The Physics of Baseball", "The Rules of Major League Baseball", "219 Patents on Baseball Bats" to "The Trees of Canada, Standard Handbook for Civil Engineers". There was also the search for wood which, for carvers and lovers of wood is never ending..

Living in and near Ottawa was a huge advantage in developing the Sam Bat concept. It's a researcher's dream centre: home of the Canadian patent library, two first rate universities, the Wood Council, the Canadian Forest Research Centre, the National and other extensive Libraries - all in the centre of the richest deciduous forest of North America.

However, sifting through the mountains of information - especially reading 219 U.S. patents - was painfully tedious. Perhaps Sam Bat hadn't been invented because no one had ever had the heart to turn one after this task. In fact, simply going by patent law, ash would be the only choice.

Developing the business end was also time-consuming. Then there was the task of translating maple (a much more dense wood than ash) into a workable model with the accepted range of bat lengths and weights.  One thing was sure: Sam Bat were determined to come up with a line of bats that would be more than adequate to deal with the needs of major league baseball.

Designed and Produced in Canada
The Original Maple Bat Corporation began operations in February 1997, and is located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Our corporate purpose is to introduce a new wooden baseball bat to Major League Baseball. Since our first year we have come a long way to achieving this goal. Since prototype testing in 1996 we realized that we had a bat that was tougher and will last longer than the ash bat traditionally in use. It is our goal to provide the best maple we can buy for use in our Sam Bats.

Canadian Maple
We make our bats from sap and better Canadian maple, the best grade available. It is kiln dried to a moisture content of 7% - 9%. The specific gravity is 63%. The selection of sugar maple allows us to model our bats extremely close to other wood bats. We are familiar with most models of wooden bats that are commonly in use.

Sam Bat: The Logo  
You don't fool around with the word bat – baseball or otherwise – without a fair amount of fun. It was kitchen table nonsense talk of the first order: about a natural sense of radar and, of course, about the idea itself: "It flies!"  It led to the need for a symbol.  If the name was to be Sam Bat, there seemed only one conclusion: it had to be a picture of the "little devil" itself.
Artist Nathan Holman, Sam's brother, came up with the bat design over the phone one evening to Sam. He said he'd put it on paper right away. It was a good design: clean and simple. Nathan's bat picture (with wonkey eyes cut out by Nathan's daughter, Laura) remained the same. Its strong, unique design should be visible from the furthest bleachers – or the smallest living room TV. More than attractive, it gives Sam Bat its new and youthful identity as what will undoubtedly be dubbed the best baseball bat in the world.

The Challenge...
From the beginning, there was no question about their market. They knew they would come up with a standard that would be universal to baseball, starting with the big leagues. The result is one of the prettiest and yet meanest baseball bats in the world. We suggest to the professional player that they provide us with a profile of a bat he is currently using. Yes, it can have a crack. We will turn a Sam Bat that he will use and enjoy.

We dare anyone to challenge this the only way that really counts: by putting Sam Bat to the test.
