YEAR IN REVIEW: The Top USSSA 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 USSSA Baseball Bats of the year. Marucci once again runs away with this list, claiming four of the top five spots.
EASTON BEAST SPEED -10 USSSA BASEBALL BAT
This one-piece ATAC Alloy bat provides a light, yet powerful barrel, and the addition of Easton’s trademarked Speed Cap helps create a more flexible and responsive barrel, while also enhancing the sound of the bat. The -10 speed design provides a lighter swing weight for more speed at contact. The Beast Speed model has a 2-5/8” barrel and features a custom Lizard Skins DSP bat grip for optimal feel, cushion, and tack.
PRICE: As low as $55.98
MARUCCI CAT8 -10 USSSA BASEBALL BAT
It is not a surprise to see one of the most popular bats ever made once again on our best sellers list. The CAT8 -10 is a USSSA certified, one-piece alloy bat built with AZ105 super strength aluminum alloy, meaning thinner walls, a higher response rate, and better durability. The precision-balanced barrel features a ring-free multi-variable wall design that creates an expanded sweet spot, while the patented AV@ Anti-Vibration know produces a better feel and less negative feedback. The professionally inspired handle features a removable taper and an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort, while the classic one-piece design provides a clean, consistent, and traditional swing.
PRICE: As low as $209.95
MARUCCI 2021 CAT9 -10 USSSA 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.
MARUCCI 2020 F5 -10 USSSA BASEBALL BAT
Designed with a traditional feel, precise balance, and multi-variable walls, the F5’s one-piece alloy design gives you the balance, speed, and control to do some heavy damage at the plate. The ring-free barrel offers greater performance with no dead spots and the custom micro-perforated soft-touch grip allows for a better grip and more comfortable feel.
PRICE: As low as $94.95
MARUCCI 2020 POSEY28 -10 USSSA BASEBALL BAT
Rounding out this year’s list is The Marucci 2020 POSEY28 Pro Metal Baseball Bat. This bat combines all of the pop of the high-strength AZ105 alloy with the look of Marucci partner Buster Posey’s in-game model. The smoke-colored wood grain cosmetics are the only thing “wood” about this one-piece alloy masher which delivers explosive performance with an extended barrel and more responsive sweet spot.
2020 was certainly an interesting year and we can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store. Be sure to check out not just our most popular bats of the last year, but the USSSA bats that we think will be must-haves for 2021, including the Rawlings 2021 5150, The Easton ADV 360, The Louisville Slugger Prime, and The DeMarini 2021 The Goods One Piece.
