        I recommen this bat but in my experience a aluminum bbcor is a little better then a wood bbcor bat but this is the best bbcor wood composite. and Yes YOU CAN USE THIS BAT IN HIGH SCHOOL. but it has to have bbcor on it and if you order it in baseball express it will be bbcor.

            This is a durable, end loaded bat with BBCOR pop. Larger sweet spot for a wood bat due to longer barrel of the 243 model but still much smaller than any aluminum bat. Excellent practice bat for a stronger high school or college player. You will need to tape up the handle or use pine tar.

                  This bat is awesome. It's much more durable than any other bat I've used. I use it for games and to hit pop flies to our outfielders. I've hit balls off the hands and it hasn't even flinched. Other bats would've broken but not this one.
