Questions and Answers for 2014 Easton MAKO Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: JBB14MK

97428

Why is is the JBB14MK discontinued?

Easton has moved on to the 2015 line of bats so 2014 models like the 2014 Easton MAKO Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (JBB14MK) were discontinued to make room for manufacturing the 2015 line.

How long does it take to break-in?

For a composite bat like the 2014 Easton MAKO Junior Big Barrel (JBB14MK) we recommend a break-in period of approximately 100 swings off of a tee or soft toss with real baseballs. Most Junior Big Barrel models won't take nearly as long to break-in. The barrel should be rotated a ¼” after each swing to assure complete barrel coverage.

2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth. Is this the same bat; just lighter? My son is swinging a 28/16 really well and I'm not sure I want to go up an ounce. What are your thoughts?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel and 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth bats are actually two different categories of bats, and are designed for different leagues. The Junior Big Barrel model is intended for Coach Pitch leagues and features the largest barrel diameter available (2 3/4"). The Youth MAKO model features the smaller 2 1/4" barrel diameter. Going from a -12 to a -11 in one season is a very manageable transition for most players. The MAKO Youth (YB14MK) still offers a very balanced swing weight, so the -11 length to weight ratio might not feel too heavy to your son. If you need a Youth model, the Easton S1 (YB14S1) would be a -12 model that is very light-swinging as well.

I see you say it isn't legal for Cal Ripken or Babe Ruth leagues. What makes it illegal?

Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth do not allow 2 3/4" barrel bats such as the 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK)

My son is 8 year old and is playing kid pitch hard ball. He uses a 27" 15 oz. bat. Is this bat good for kid pitch hard ball?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) has thinner walls and is not designed for machine or kid pitch. We recommend the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB).

Kara Expert ·May 06, 2014

Is this 28" 16 oz. suitable for a 60" tall eleven year old?

No, the 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK Junior Big Barrel) would be created for a younger player playing in a Coach Pitch league. A player at the 11 year old age should probably be looking at Youth or Senior League bats. These would be better suited to be more durable for kid pitch.

Brandon Expert ·May 03, 2014

89283

Is this bat legal for Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth district play?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: JBB14MK has a 2 3/4", composite barrel and is not legal in Cal Ripken or Babe Ruth.

Does the MAKO: JBB14MK come in a 2 5/8 inch Barrel?

No. The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel bat currently only comes in a 2 3/4 inch design.

Patrick Expert ·Apr 25, 2014

87446

What are the performance differences in the Easton Mako junior big barrel and the Easton Mako youth big barrel?

The Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) is designed for use in coach pitch leagues. If it were to be used for kid pitch play it would crack because of the harder ball. The youth big barrel models are designed to be used in kid pitch with the harder balls.

Does this bat pass Little League standards? Is the barrel size of 2 3/4" too large?

The Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) is not approved for Little League play. The model that you are looking for is the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK).

My son is 7 years old. He weighs 52 pounds and is 3'10" tall. He is on machine pitch this year. What size and weight do you recommend?

Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 27" 15 oz model in the 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel.

Jason Expert ·Mar 23, 2014

Can you use this bat with the total control weighted balls or would that be bad for the bat?

We do not recommend hitting a weighted ball with the 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) or any of our bats. The walls of the bat are not designed to hit heavier balls so it can actually damage the bat.

Kelby Expert ·Mar 15, 2014

my son is 48" tall and 58 lbs what size bat should he get

Based off of his approximate height and weight, the suggested length would be 27 inches.

Is the Mako bat ok to use with pitching machines throwing 38 miles per hour?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel bat is designed to hit baseballs pitched under 40 miles per hour. This speed would be close to the limits of what the barrel walls are made to withstand. It is also important that actual baseballs are used rather than the yellow dimpled balls used with some pitching machines. These yellow dimpled balls can cause damage to the bat and cause durability issues.

My son is 7 years old. He is 52 inches tall and weighs 65 lbs. He plays machine pitch. Can you tell me the proper size? He has been using a 27" 10 oz Easton S3.

Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 28" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel. However, Junior Big Barrel bats are better suited for players in Coach Pitch. For more sizing information please check our bat coach at http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

My son is playing tee ball in Georgia. The coach also pitches to the guys. Is this bat approved for tee ball in Georgia? My son is 54" tall and weights 80 lbs. He is currently using the Worth Copperhead 26" 14 oz. bat.

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK Junior Big Barrel) would be a fine choice for tee ball or coach pitch.

Hello. My 6 year old son is 47.5" tall and weighs 51 pounds. Your chart says his ideal bat length is 28", is this correct? Also, can this bat be damaged while using the "Rif 5" soft baseballs in coach pitch competition? Thanks :)

Your son can certainly use the 28" if he is comfortable with it. He could also use an inch or two smaller depending on his comfort level. The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel would be a great choice. You should not see any problem hitting the "Rif 5" balls with this bat.

My son is 7 years old and about 49 inches and 53 pounds. He is playing in coach pitch so I would like to know if I got him the correct size.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) is designed for coach pitch. Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 26'' bat. For more information on sizing please visit our Bat Coach at http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/.

My son is 4 years old and 46" what size do you recommend for him?

Based on his height, I would recommend a 26" bat in the 2014 Easton MAKO: JBB14MK Junior Big Barrel. Based on his age, he may need to go with a tee ball bat.

Justin R. Expert ·Feb 17, 2014

Is this bat legal in USSSA kid pitch? Forget about the denting. I just want to know if it is legal.

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO Junior Big Barrel meets all of USSSA's requirements for play. This bat is advised for coach pitch play but can be used for play in USSSA.

My son is 5 years old, weighs 40 lbs, and plays Tee Ball. What size would he need? Would this be a good bat for him?

Based on his age, we recommend a 26" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel, but this model is more ideal for coach pitch. The 2014 Easton MAKO (TB14MK) Tee Ball is better suited for a player in Tee Ball.

Jason Expert ·Feb 09, 2014

83136

Can this bat be used in tee ball?

It totally depends on what your particular league allows. This 2014 Easton MAKO: (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel bat features the newest USSSA BPF 1.15 performance certification mark like new Tee Ball models, but the barrel diameter is much larger. Most Tee Ball divisions will require the smaller 2 1/4" barrel diameter. Concerning your league's rules, it's always best to contact a league director or coach.

My son just turned 6. He is about 47" and 47 lbs. What size would you recommend? I think the bat he has been using is 15 oz. I would like to get a good amount of use out of this bat.

Based on his height and weight, we recommend the 27" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel.

My Son will be 9 in 2 months, he is on the smaller side but plays in a kid pitch league, is the easton mako big barrel, 28\16 little league approved if he used it? If not what is the most comparable bat with a similar or same size \weight i can get for him?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel is approved for coach pitch only. It has thin walls and will dent easily. The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth is approved for Little League with a 2 1/4 inch barrel and 28'' 17 oz length to weight ratio.

Aaron Expert ·Feb 09, 2014

My son is machine pitch. It throws about 43 mph. Do you think this bat would be able to handle the machine?

We do not recommend using the 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) or any tee ball bat against machine or kid pitch. They are not designed to be strong enough to hold up to the faster and harder pitches.

Tori Expert ·Feb 05, 2014

My son is 8 1/2, weighs 105 lbs and is 56" tall. He is starting his first year of kid pitch after 2 years in coach pitch. He can use a 2 3/4" barrel and any material bat. Which size and model would be best?

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 30" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League. The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel is best used in coach pitch and will not be able to handle the speeds in kid pitch.

Jason Expert ·Jan 26, 2014

82165

Why is this for coach pitch only? Will it dent or fail if used against 8 year old pitching?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) Junior Big Barrel is a coach pitch bat. Coach pitch bats are made for younger players and have thinner walls which is why they would dent if used against kid pitching.

My son is small for his age . 52" tall but weight of 60 lbs. He uses a 28" 16 oz. TPX now . I bought this bat due to it's size 28" 16 oz , but it says Junior, not Youth. Will this Easton work?
