Rawlings Ash Wood Baseball Bat: PA243 Adult review by Big Tuna
Pros: Great balance and value. I have not had a problem yet, playing six games with the first of the three and there are absolutely no breaks, splits or cracks. One of my teammates who uses the same bat 34'' coated his in clear outdoor polyurethane and he has been using his from mid last season, says it keeps in the moisture. I might try that. Cons:some bats are lighter than others and the grain can be wavy in parts.

Rawlings Ash Wood Baseball Bat: PA243 Adult review by Kangfirmed
Pros: So far so good! Great balance and seems like decent wood for the price. Nothing flashy, just a solid wood bat and a great value. Cons:Being less than $50, I have no idea how long it will hold up, but after a month of use I'd say I've already gotten my money's worth!

Ask A Question

What quality of billet is used for this bat? Is it pro or minor league grade or a lesser quality?

The northern white ash on the Rawlings Ash Wood Baseball Bat (PA243) is high quality timber and it is shaped into a pro style turn model. I would say that professional players may use a slightly higher grade of timber but the difference would not be readily noticeable to the average player, though.

I'm looking for a heavy wooden bat for my son to practice his swing. Would this bat be right for this? If not, what would you recommend?

The Rawlings Ash Wood Baseball Bat (PA243 Adult) will feature a larger barrel and an end-loaded swing weight that would be ideal for a power hitter, or for usage as a training tool as well.

I'd like to find the Rawlings 243 in a 34" size.

The Rawlings Ash Wood Baseball Bat (PA243) is not offered in the 34" size. The PA243 is only offered in the 32" and 33" size.

I would like to let your company know that for three years I have been ordering bats from you and I have always had a young man named Clint help me and put my orders in through him. I just wanted to let you know how nice, helpful and sweet he is. He has always treated me with the utmost respect, always called me back if needed, and always given me a lot of helpful information on my orders. He is just a wonderful representative of your company. I will continue to order for your company as long as he is working for you. Thanks you.
