Rawlings has created its hottest bat yet.
Rawlings' 5150 Alloy -3 Baseball Bat (model number BBCA
) features a large sweet spot and a low swing weight, and, best of all, it is BBCOR and BESR approved.
“With the BBCOR, they have hit a home run with this bat, and I’m excited about getting our season started to use the technology they've put into this bat and put it into a great performance,” said Georgia Tech Head Coach Danny Hall.
Rawlings developed its own metal-forming process to create the 5150 BBCOR Bat. This process allows for precise wall thickness, resulting in maximum pop and the best trampoline effect available.
Precision-controlled wall thickness creates a maximum rebound zone that gives more flex and a greater sweet spot than other bats.
“This really feels balanced, but you feel that when you do get in the sweet spot, you’re really going to get optimum distance. I think the swing weight of this really feels comfortable and will appeal to the masses,” said Tulane University Head Coach Rick Jones.
“The last two seasons at the University of Virginia, we have had our best two offensive seasons in the school’s history where we have combined to have a .330 batting average and have 60 home runs in each season,” said University of Virginia Head Coach Brian O’Connor. “We’re capable of doing that because of the Rawlings bats and their ability to stay ahead of technology and develop the bats so our players can perform at their maximum level.”
All that new technology wasn't enough for Rawlings, though. To optimize the bat's swing weight, Rawlings created Precision-Optimized Performance Technology™, or POP, that isolates the weight in a small region, maximizing bat speed and control.
“The separation from Rawlings and their competitors is because of the balance. I think that they got it right the first time through,” said University of South Carolina Head Coach Ray Tanner.
