Get a great value on a wood bat with a Rawlings Performance bat
This line of bats offers quality wood and professional styles at affordable prices.
Performance wood bats have a cupped end, which takes weight out of the bat to make it lighter and move the balance point toward the hands.
In addition, the maple bats carry the Pro Ink Dot Test on the handle.
Major League Baseball requires this test because of the way maple bats shatter when they break. The ink dot bleeds in the direction of the wood grain, allowing the straightness of the grain to be measured. According to MLB, the straighter the grain, the stronger the bat. These bats should be hit on the face of grain.
New to the Performance series is model number 271MAR
, a performance-grade maple bat with a 2-½” barrel and a Pro cupped end. It features a flared knob with an unfinished pro handle.
Other models in the Performance series are: 350FMAP
(ash) and 182AP
ash wood bat is perfect for transitioning from a metal bat to a wood bat. It has a guaranteed -3 drop.
In addition, when you order through Rawlings Gear, you can have your name and number engraved on select wood bats.
