Go after a Rawlings Velo if you want a bat that can achieve top bat speeds and flummox opposing pitchers and defenders!
Most of today's youth players are demanding bats that are lightweight to allow for top barrel control and high swing velocities. The Rawlings Velo baseball bat delivers on that desire as it is a one-piece and all-aluminum baseball bat with a 2-inch composite end cap. Rawlings calls the 2-inch end cap their ACP (Accelerated Composite Performance) technology. The presence of that end cap lightens up the entire feel of the bat and can allow for an enjoyable swinging experience for both a power hitter and a contact hitter.
The drop 8 size will make this bat an excellent consideration for an advanced USSSA baseball player at the ages of 11 and 12-years-old. Also, a drop 8 is a prime pick for a player within the 13U division of USSSA baseball. In that 13U division, you must at least have a drop 8 size baseball bat for use (the only other size options allowed are a drop 5 USSSA bat or a drop 3 BBCOR bat).
