Rawlings has introduced two new youth bats this season—the 5150 Exogrid with Ph.D -11
and the 5150 X-treme Performance –11
The Exogrid (model number YB51XO
) and the X-treme Performance (model number YB51XP
) bats, along with all of Rawlings’ youth bats, are approved for play in all youth leagues.
The Exogrid frame is a one-piece alloy reinforced with patented Ph.D technology, which reduces sting while expanding the sweet spot.
The X-treme Performance bat has a 100-percent composite frame.
When shopping for the right bat for your player, look for the one that is the heaviest he can swing without sacrificing bat speed.
Other popular Rawlings youth bats are the 5150 Alloy -12
(model number YB5150A) and the Plasma Youth Bat -13
(model number YBPLAS).
Rawlings youth bats have drops ranging from -13 to -10. Most Rawlings youth bats also carry a one-year warranty.
If you're shopping for a training bat, consider a youth wood bat
. Wood bats are good for training because they have a smaller sweet spot. Rawlings Gear carries a wide selection of youth wood bats
