Experience unrivaled performance at the plate with the Marucci CATX2 Connect Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat. Meticulously engineered to maximize energy transfer, performance, and feel, this bat represents the pinnacle of Marucci's commitment to excellence.

The CATX2 Connect features a two-piece hybrid construction with a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter and a drop 3 length to weight ratio, delivering a power-loaded swing feel designed to generate effortless power. The S-series composite handle and AZR alloy barrel combine to create a perfect balance of stiffness and flexibility, optimizing performance across the entire hitting surface.

One of the standout features of the CATX2 Connect is its patented anti-vibration technology, which is integrated into the knob, connection, and endcap. This technology absorbs virtually all vibrations from both ends of the bat, resulting in an exceptionally smooth feel during contact. The OLS connection design further enhances stiffness, minimizing vibrations on contact and ensuring a strong, smooth swing.

The CATX2 Connect also features a wider sweet spot and increased barrel length and mass, thanks to its advanced internal wall design. This design distributes mass more evenly across the barrel, resulting in improved performance and forgiveness on off-centered hits.

Engineered with Marucci's AZR Aluminum, the CATX2 Connect offers superior responsiveness, durability, and performance. The multi-variable wall design further expands the sweet spot and produces thinner walls for more forgiving off-centered performance. The ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel flex and increased performance without any "dead" spots.

The bat's custom-molded handle taper is ergonomically designed for each weight drop, offering a better fit, improved bat control, and a superior overall feel. The enhanced soft-touch grip provides improved feel and control, ensuring a comfortable and secure grip during play.

Backed by a one-year warranty, the Marucci CATX2 Connect Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat is a testament to Marucci's commitment to quality and performance. With its advanced features and exceptional engineering, this bat is designed to take 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, increases consistency, improves durability 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.
