- Size Guide
The Rawlings Velo wood baseball bat is built with a guaranteed minimum (-5) ounce weight drop and a 2 1/2" big barrel. One of the toughest transitions a hitter will face is making the switch from aluminum to wood bats. The weight drop in the bat is the key to offensive success. The Velo bat is designed for players getting an early start with wood at the Little League Ranks.
Balance generates bat speed. Rawlings’ Velo™ bats are best suited for players looking to maximize their swing speed while seeking a more balanced stick.

Baseball Bat Sizing Chart

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.
