Power hitters love the end-loaded feel and ultra-responsive barrel of the CAT8 Connect BBCOR, a two-piece hybrid bat featuring a power-loaded barrel built with AZ105 super-strength aluminum alloy. The patented SDX EXT connection (US Patent No. 10,016,667) increases stiffness to maintain energy transfer to the ball, while also dismissing negative vibrations to the hands, resulting in maximum power and minimum sting.
Its multi-variable wall design creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are more forgiving after off-centered contact and features a ring-free barrel construction which allows for more barrel flex and increases performance with no "dead" spots. Additionally, you'll notice the two-piece hybrid design combines a carbon composite handle with the AZ105 alloy barrel for maximum power.
Marucci included a professionally inspired handle which features a removable taper and an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort and added a micro-perforated soft-touch grip with extra tack to improve feel and control.
Featuring a 2 5/8-inch barrel design and drop 3 length to weight ratio, the 2019 Marucci CAT8 Connect (-3) BBCOR Baseball Bat - Black is the perfect size bat for any elite-level player. This bat includes the BBCOR certified stamp.
