Is Birch the Right Wood for You?
Rawlings' latest entry in the wood bat market is the birch bat.

Birch is Rawlings' most durable wood. The closed grain structure prevents flaking and splintering.

Rawlings' 141 VELO Birch Bat (model number 141BIR) is made from yellow birch with a medium VELO barrel. A medium barrel is classified as 2.5” or smaller.

It has a 29/32” handle and a pro cupped end for great balance.

VELO bats are best suited for players looking to maximize their swing speed from a balanced stick.

This bat is available in 32”, 33” and 34” lengths.

According to Rawlings, birch wood is an ideal combination of maple and ash characteristics, with the flexibility of an ash bat and the hardness of a maple bat.

At Rawlings Gear, you can choose the wood bat that works best for you.
