Marucci Elite – Best Bat You’ve Never Swung

Marucci EliteThe Marucci Elite name is not one that is as known or popular on baseball benches around the country, but it is one of those bats that once used, will make you a lifer. The 2014 line of Marucci Elite bats features baseball bats for senior league players and BBCOR leagues. The senior league comes in two sizes, while the BBCOR model comes in four different weights.

Senior League -5oz.

This bat is a half and half model featuring their patented technology molding together different materials. This technology fused together aluminum and carbon, which helps you swing faster while also getting a massive sweet spot to get the best contact. The bat was also constructed with another patented technology, this time the Unequal method which is their  Kevlar-grip that helps to eliminate sting on those colder nights. The technology Marucci Elite used to put together this bat is like none other and seamlessly combines the carbon fiber handle with the multi material barrel.

Senior League -10oz.

For those needing to swing a bat with a little less weight, the -10oz. model is the perfect tool to add to your bat bag. This bat was constructed with the same materials and technologies as the -5oz. model. This bat, like its heavier model is USSSA certified with a 1.15 BPF a 12 month warranty protecting you against cracks, dents and more.

Marucci Elite BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz.

The Marucci Elite 2 BBCOR baseball bat is one of the best baseball bats released for the 2014 season. What the company did with this model was get rid of the extra weight that added no value to your swing and turned it into something that now has an extended sweet spot and an overall improved feel. The company even improved the end cap, replacing the last few inches of the barrel with material fused together with improved technology.

The Marucci Elite name is one that is just that, elite. Once you use one of these BBCOR bats and experience the difference during batting practice or in a game, you won’t want to go back to swinging any bat purchased from a chain and will be hooked forever.

Marucci Sports – Manufacturer Spotlight

Marucci Sports Baseball BatsMarucci Sports was founded in 2002 in Baton Rouge and has made a notable dent on the baseball bat market. This American company was founded by Louisiana State University Athletic Director Jack Marucci. The company’s co-founders are former Major League Baseball players Kurt Ainsworth and Joe Lawrence.

Jack Marucci first thought of making replica baseball bats after his son Gino wanted a bat of his own so he can copy his favorite stars. Marucci found it difficult to find the perfect bat for his son so he made his own. The initial bat made for his son was done with Amish wood and Gino ended up using the bat in his games, which in turn led to Marucci making more bats for Gino’s friends.

Marucci Sports eventually made a baseball bat for then-MLB first baseman, Eduardo Perez. Through Perez, now the bench coach for the Houston Astros, Marucci found a home for his products in the hands of several MLB stars. Among the MLB superstars that swing these premier wood bats are Jose Bautista, Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes, David Wright, Ryan Howard, Albert Pujols and Shin-Soo Choo.

While Marucci Sports began by making only wood bats, the company has since evolved to include BBCOR baseball bats, helmets, bags, batting gloves and a limited edition series of softball bats. Their one softball bat offered comes in two weight drop ratios of -8 and -9. Only 500 of each bat were made for 2013 and each comes etched with the serial number. Their bats are constructed with Marucci Sports’ two piece construction that provides you the ultimate power with each swing.

Marucci Elite BBCOR Bat – The New King of BBCOR Baseball Bats

The newest Marucci BBCOR bats is about to hit the baseball diamonds of America. A mass launch scheduled for January, 2013. The Marucci Elite BBCOR baseball bat is the latest BBCOR bat to come out of Marucci’s Baton Rouge, LA headquarters. The Elite BBCOR uses  and “aerospace grade composite material” in the handle and a combination of this same composite material and Marucci’s exclusive AZ3000 alloy in the bat barrel.

So, what we have here is a composite bat with mix of aluminum alloy and composite in the barrel of the baseball bat. That is essentially what the TPX Exogrid is from Louisville Slugger, except the Exogrid is almost entirely aluminum with a very small amount of composite inserts, where the Marucci Elite BBCOR is almost all composite with a little bit of aluminum.

Our initial hits on the Marucci Elite produced very good results. We very much liked the balance of the Elite, along with the pop, and the sound. While we did not get as much time with the Elite BBCOR as we wanted, we are sure this will be one of the best BBCOR bats for 2013.
