Ask A Question

I am looking to try my first wooden bat, would this be a good starting bat?

The Rawlings Ash Wood Bat (242JAP) Youth is an excellent bat to start using wood with. The 242JAP has a balanced swing weight and an approximate -7 to -9 length to weight ratio.

Jason Expert ·Jan 26, 2014


Which material would have more pop, ash or maple?

Ash wood is a lighter wood that offers faster swing speeds and a little more flex. Maple is a harder wood that is slightly heavier and would offer more "pop" than ash.

I am a contact hitter with a little drop of power, and I'm looking to improve my bat speed. Would this be a good bat for me?

The Rawlings Ash Wood Bat: 242J Youth has one of the biggest drops for a youth wood bat at -7 to -9. So for a wood bat this would be one of your best bets to improve bat speed.

Product Description

Looking for the best value on a youth wood bat? Look no further. The Rawlings 242J youth wood bat is made from strong and durable Northern White Ash. This bat features the 242 youth profile that gives it a new, thinner 7/8 inch handle and a 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter. The 242J comes with a natural, flame tempered finish to give it a classic, yet trendy look. This bat features a balanced and lightweight design, despite the non-cupped end, which actually gives the 242J a little added durability. With an approximate -7 to -9 length to weight ratio, this is one of the lighter-swinging wood bats you'll find on fields today. This bat is great for practice or games, and the benefits of using wood at an early age have been well documented. Inexpensive wood bats make great practice bats so that players can save their high dollar metal bat from unnecessary wear and tear. Team discounts are also available for this product when placing a bulk order. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro! This bat is approved for play in all major youth leagues. Free Shipping!

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.
