Warstic 2022 Gunner USSSA Metal Baseball Bat -5
This versatile weapon is for contact hitters. Updated with a longer barrel to maximize the sweet spot, the Gunner is a tool that will command the respect of your adversaries when you step into the box. Hitters that swing the Gunner are always in attack mode at the plate. They are in the lineup to hit the ball hard, and often. The Gunner is great at gap to gap, but possesses the power to go deep when it’s time. It has the right combo of power and control for adaptable, contact hitters who like two-piece feel technology, but with a more classic baseball bat swing. The Gunner is balanced, but not so much that you lose the feel of the barrel. If you can really hit, you don't want an overly balanced bat.

The Story of the Gunner.
Following a trip to Pearl Harbor, Warstic© Founder Ben Jenkins was inspired to design the Gunner Metal Bat Series. He was moved by the story of sacrifice and influenced by the clean, matte gray look of battleships like USS Arizona. He was further inspired by the font work he saw on the Navy fighter planes and gunships in creating the Gunner's logo.
