BBCOR Baseball Bats We Love For 2021
There is nothing better than the feel of a new bat in your hand as you step into the batter’s box for your first at-bat of a new season. When you find the right bat, it forms an instant connection and is the start of a new relationship between a player and his favorite piece of equipment. Here are the BBCOR bats we have fallen in love with for the 2021 season.
DEMARINI 2021 THE GOODS
There’s no power wasted with the DeMarini 2021 The Goods One Piece. This bat showcases a massive X14 Alloy Barrel with additional mass near the end cap. Combined with the one-piece design you get the feel of a wooden bat and the ability to deliver even more power on every swing.
EASTON 2021 MAXUM ULTRA
The Easton Maxum made its long-awaited return in 2020 with the release of the Easton Maxum 360, and the follow-up is even better. Still featuring a larger barrel and sweet spot as its defining features, the Maxum Ultra improved on its predecessors with direct input from D1 college players. These insights lead to re-balancing the Maxum Ultra, adding more mass to the barrel. Combined with its composite design, huge barrel, and massive sweet spot, the Maxum Ultra is able to provide players with even more speed and power than ever before.
PRICE: As Low As $399.95
MARUCCI 2021 CAT9 CONNECT BBCOR BASEBALL BAT
We have gushed about this bat previously, but we just can’t help ourselves.
The follow-up to the CAT8 was one of the most anticipated new releases of all-time. The new Marucci CAT9 is fabricated using Marucci’s newest AZR aluminum. The AZR aluminum has the same strength as the AZ105 featured in the CAT*, but has a more responsive microstructure for better performance across the entire barrel, making for a very large sweet spot. The CAT9 also features the same ring-free, multi-variable wall barrel designs as the CAT8 and features the popular AV2 Anti-Vibration knob.
If you prefer a traditional one-piece or are looking for the CAT9 experience at a lower price point, Marucci has you covered with the 2021 CAT9 -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat.
RAWLINGS 2021 QUATRO PRO
The Quatro Pro returns this year featuring a new, sleek black color scheme while still showing off the trademark Rawlings red. The Q4 suspended inner-barrel technology gives you a larger sweet spot, a longer barrel, and a more balanced swing. As a result you’ll see more consistent swings, and you’ll find more gaps than ever before.
The composite design and Rawlings’ F2 Collar allows for a smooth and comfortable feel at contact, reducing barrel drag and vibration.
EASTON 2021 B5 PRO BIG BARREL
THE GREEN EASTON IS BACK! First introduced in 1978, the original B5 Pro Big Barrel bat boasted the largest barrel aluminum bat ever made to that point in time for a larger sweet spot. And after 40 years in the making, all of Easton’s innovations have produced a new breakthrough worthy of the B5 Pro Big Barrel name. The new B5 Pro features a ringless barrel with varying wall thicknesses. This premium Advanced Thermal Alloy Construction (ATAC) produces a bigger sweet spot and smoother feel for B5 Pro than any other bat of its kind. And, combining its construction with Easton’s Speed Cap™, the B5 Pro also provides a more flexible and responsive barrel. Additionally, the bat’s Natural Pro Balance Swing Weight results in a balanced feel for both speed and power. Its Extra-Stiff ATAC Alloy Handle transfers maximum energy into the ball for a more professional feel and performance, while its VRS™ Handle Insert reinforces the handle to reduce vibration and create an even more solid feel. The B5 Pro also has a premium grip, which provides the ultimate combination of cushion and tack. Not only is the 2021 B5 Pro the best performance, feel and sound that Easton has ever engineered in a 1-piece aluminum BBCOR bat, the bat’s design is a modern remix of The Green Easton’s classic look. THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING. AGAIN.
