Get more pop for the price with Rawlings' Pro Preferred Ash Wood Baseball Bat (model number P288RJ).

Rawlings' P288RJ ash bat features the popular PRO288RJ profile with a 31/32" handle and 2-9/16" barrel. It has a pro cupped end for a great swing weight balance and a flared knob for added comfort for the bottom hand.

"This is a nice lightweight bat that has a lot of power; the price is a little high but it is worth spending the money. My friends all wanted to use it when I got it." wrote shortstopper in an online review at

The bat's two-tone finish with high-gloss, ultra-protective clear coat creates a sharp look.

The bat comes in the following lengths: 32”, 33” and 34”.

Only the best 5 percent of ash makes the cut for bats labeled “Pro Preferred.”

Pro Preferred ash bats have a U-shaped cupped end that takes weight out of the bat, making it lighter and moving the balance point toward the hands. Pro Preferred ash bats are individually inspected, with the length, weight and balance point (-2 average) written in the cupped end.

When you order through, you can have your number engraved on any Pro Preferred wood bat.
