Elevate your game with the Marucci CATX2 Connect -5 USA Baseball Bat, engineered to provide young hitters with a balanced swing and explosive power.

Featuring a large 2 5/8" barrel diameter, the CATX2 Connect is a dream for launch angle hitters. Its balanced swing weight, achieved through a drop 5 length-to-weight ratio, ensures smooth bat control and effortless bat speed generation. Approved for play in various leagues, including AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, and Pony, this bat is a versatile option for young athletes.

Marucci's expertise shines through in the CATX2's two-piece, hybrid construction. The AZR Alloy barrel undergoes a revolutionary 3-stage thermal treatment process, resulting in a more responsive microstructure. This translates to 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 while incorporating thinner walls for a more forgiving feel on off-center swings.

For ultimate control, the CATX2 Connect features a ring-free barrel construction, eliminating dead zones and maximizing barrel flex for a trampoline effect. The custom-molded handle taper, tailored for each weight drop, provides a comfortable, locked-in feel. The removable micro-perforated soft-touch grip offers exceptional tack and a personalized feel for every hitter.

Backed by a full twelve-month manufacturer’s warranty, the Marucci CATX2 Connect -5 USA Baseball Bat is an investment in balanced power and swing control, helping young players become dominant forces at the plate.

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.
