The Marucci CATX2 Alloy USA Youth Baseball Bat in the -8 drop configuration is a powerhouse designed to offer both power and control to serious hitters. With its massive 2 5/8" barrel, this bat delivers explosive performance, while its drop 8 swing weight ensures a balanced feel for exceptional bat control. Approved for play in various leagues including AABC, Babe Ruth, and more, the CATX2 is a versatile option for advanced hitters looking to dominate the competition.

Crafted with Marucci's innovative AZR Alloy barrel, the CATX2 undergoes a revolutionary 3-stage thermal treatment process, resulting in a more responsive microstructure. This enhancement creates a "hotter" bat with a larger sweet spot, offering more forgiveness on off-center hits and overall better performance at the plate. The multi-variable wall design expands the sweet spot and incorporates thinner walls for a more forgiving feel on off-center swings.

For unparalleled control, the CATX2 features a ring-free barrel construction that eliminates dead zones and maximizes barrel flex, resulting in a coveted trampoline effect. The precision-balanced barrel lowers the Moment of Inertia (MOI), providing a more balanced feel and greater swing control.

Marucci goes the extra mile with the CATX2 by including a patent-pending liquid-gel dampening knob that absorbs vibrations on contact, ensuring a smoother and more solid feel. The professionally inspired, custom-sized handle taper offers an ergonomic fit, enhancing comfort and bat control. Additionally, the micro-perforated soft-touch grip with extra tack improves feel and control, allowing hitters to confidently lock in and crush pitches.

Backed by a full twelve-month manufacturer's warranty, the Marucci CATX2 -8 USA Baseball Bat is a solid investment in power, precision, and confidence, destined to elevate your game to the next level.

OPTION GUIDE: Should I order this bat stock/untouched or Heat Rolled with Progressive Pressure?
If you order your new bat Heat Rolled with Progressive Pressure, it will be delivered to you completely and evenly broken in. This process adds 20-40ft of distance to your solid hits and adds 2-3 business days of lead time to your order. If you plan to use the bat in an official game or event, please verify the legality of our process with your league or sanctioning body before use. We (LongballBats.com) do not encourage the use of a Heat Rolled bat in any game or event where it is against the rules. Click here for details about our process!
