Versatile hitter Edub player

Pros: Nice balance. I like the thicker handle for the size of my hands. I also like the tapered handle.

Cons: The cup is too deep. It negates 5-6 inches at the end of the bat. The cupping is cut in a way that it leaves a hollow hole. There isn't any gradation to how the cup is cut. Also, the grain of the wood looks very loose. In the end, the sweet spot is the smallest I've handled in a wood bat. You can hear how hollow the end is. I would be afraid to use it to hit tennis balls. This does not look like or feel like top grade timber!

Great Bat Zav player

Pros: I loved this bat! It has so much pop. This bat has a huge sweet-spot on it. It is a bit end-loaded for me (coming from a guy who's 5'6/130), but whenever I made contact with this bat, the ball flies off. I've been jammed a couple of times with this bat, but it didn't even chip, check swings and I was still driving the ball. Great sound off the bat, too! The bat is really comfortable to grip, (I put tape on the handle where my bottom hand goes with tar to increase grip) especially with the flared knob. The bat looks really nice too! I'm not the strongest guy, but I was still able to swing this bat. Recommend this bat to players who weigh more than me.

Cons: Only lasted me 4 months, but other than that it's a great bat!

D
This Sam Bat Miguel Cabrera Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RMC1 Natural/Black Adult) will feature an approximate -2 to -3 length to weight ratio. Because of that, the number of the weight in ounces of a model of this bat will be approximately 2-3 numbers less than the number of the length in inches.
Ben
I used mine and got a lot of vibration in the handle. Is there any way to limit that?
Guac
The only way to limit vibration on the Sam Bat Miguel Cabrera Maple Wood Baseball Bat: RMC1 Natural/Black Adult, or any other wood bat for that matter, is to limit off centered hits. Wood bats are not forgiving on usually on the first non-barrel hit the bat will break (depending on velocity of pitch and/or bat speed generated).
Cameron
Is Miguel's name imprinted on this bat? What weight is this bat, and is it the weight he uses?
Greg Drazkowski
The Sam Bat Miguel Cabrera Maple Wood Baseball Bat: RMC1 Natural/Black Adult will not feature the name of Miguel Cabrera on the bat. As for the weight of the bat, it will feature a -2 to -3 length to weight ratio so a 33 inch bat could weigh 30 or 31 ounces. As for the weight of the bat that Miggy uses, we are not sure on this. This bat is essentially a close "replica" to his actual game model as the MLB players will have their bats turned to their exact specs (weight, handle diameter, taper, etc.).
Cameron
What Marucci model is this bat comparable to?
MW20
The Sam Bat Miguel Cabrera Maple Wood Baseball Bat: RMC1 Natural/Black Adult would be comparable to the Marucci David Ortiz Maple Wood Baseball Bat: PAPI34.
Cameron
How easily does this model bat break and what velocity or other factors would cause this bat to break?
Jordan
The Sam Bat Miguel Cabrera Maple Wood Baseball Bat: RMC1 Natural/Black Adult is no more nor any less durable than any other maple wood baseball bat that is constructed from one solid piece of maple wood. This bat will hold well as long as the ball is hit on the sweet spot of the barrel. If the ball is hit off the end of the bat or down towards the label of the bat, regardless of speed, then there is a good chance this bat will break like any other.
Cameron
Is there a pro ink dot on this bat?
kyle
The Sam Bat Miguel Cabrera Maple Wood Baseball Bat: RMC1 Natural/Black Adult does not feature the pro ink dot test.

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.
