Rawlings Maple Ace
Maple Ace utilizes the same high-grade maple as the pros and combines Adirondack® balanced timber with the player-preferred natural unfinished look.

Comments about Rawlings 243 Big Stick Maple Wood Baseball Bat:

Best when facing off speed pitchers with weaker fast balls. Can sit back and crush. Very durable wood. Lots of head to drive deep flys. Not yet able to get the same bat speed I have with the 271 maple Velo. Perfect power hitters bat. Get some muscle first then swinging top heavy bats isn't an issue. If you get jammed a lot then this isn't your bat. Very thin handle that feels awesome. Racking up doubles, ball jumps off. Bottom line, I can swing this bat since I'm 6' 230 lbs. I'd still use a Velo if a pitcher is throwing high 80's. WORD

Comments about Rawlings 243 Big Stick Maple Wood Baseball Bat:

guys, this bat is a little small, but when you think about it playing in a wood bat tourney you are going to want to get around on the bal fast. this bat is well balanced and has a good sweet spot. a tape job or some pine tar and this bat is on its way! also it has a good knob for grip which i think is important.

Softball Bat Sizing

To find the correct bat length for your softball-playing daughter, have her stand straight up with her arms to the side. Place a ruler to her side with the start of the ruler (the "0" mark) on the ground. Read the measurement at the end of her wrist, just where the hand meets the forearm. As a general rule, this measurement indicates the perfect bat length for her.

Another sizing method for Baseball and Softball

Another great means for determining bat size is what we'll call the wingspan method. Have your son or daughter stand up tall with their arms straight out (arms should be parallel to the ground as if they were trying to mimic an airplane). Measure from the very center of their chest out to the tip of their fingers. That measurement will give you the ideal bat length.

It's always best to try to size using a variety of methods to come up with their ideal. For youth which are still growing, we recommend that you go with the longest length obtained through the various sizing methods. We often use the break of the wrist method (described in the softball bat sizing above) along with this method and use the longer of the two.
