We used the 2018 version of the 5150 bat for an extended season last year and found it to be one of the better performing USA bats. Aside from some cosmetic blemishes - the bat still has life in it...just a little too small now. So we picked up the 2019 version of the bat (slightly larger size) without hesitation. Unfortunately, the bat has dented (significantly) after just a couple practices and will not see any 2019 game action. By the time we file a warranty claim with Rawlings, send the bat to them at our expense, wait for approval of claim, etc., the season will be over.
