YEAR IN REVIEW: The Top BBCOR Baseball Bats of 2020
Welcome to another installment of our Year In Review, where we are taking a look back at our most popular and best selling products of 2020. Today we are looking at our top selling BBCOR Baseball Bats of the year.
MARUCCI 2021 CAT9 -3 BBCOR BASEBALL BAT
The follow-up to the CAT8 was one of the most anticipated new releases of 2020 and was not only a huge hit this year, but will most likely be on this list again for 2021. 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.
PRICE: As low as $349.95

The newest addition to the Velo line, the Rawlings 2020 Velo ACP BBCOR bat was meticulously crafted to boost your swing speed at the plate. This re-imagined carbon fiber end cap, and perfectly balanced bat weight give you more time to choose your pitch and crank it to a gap.
Its drop-3 weight makes it perfect for high school and college players. As a result, this Velo ACP bat is perfect for hitters who need to maximize their exit velocity and on-base percentage, while staying within the BBCOR standards.
