Is this bat end loaded?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SLCT14-RX) features a balanced swing weight.

My son is 8 years old and has this bat is a 29/17. He had an Easton S3 before this and his swing seemed to be faster and hit harder. He seems to pop up a lot with this bat. Is the size bat and weight I have for him correct - or what would you recommend? He is 48" tall and about 60 lbs.

Based on your son's height and weight I would advise using the 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) in either the 28" 16 oz. or 29" 17 oz. Since it sounds like your son is having a little trouble with swing speed, I would advise using the 28" 16 oz. size.

Is the 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL: SLCT14-RX Senior League 27" 15 oz. bat suitable for competitive 9U travel baseball? My son plays very competitive 9U baseball and he is a real solid contact hitter but he is a small guy (4'1" and 50 pounds). He is currently using a 27" 15 oz. Combat Portent and it sounds dead and has no "pop" and I am looking to make a switch. Any other recommendations? How does this bat (LS Catalyst XL SLCT14-RX Senior League) compare to the Easton MAKO Junior Big Barrel 27" 15 oz. bat?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) is designed for coach pitch only should not be used in machine or kid pitch. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) is a high performing bat and is a great option for a smaller player. The SLCT14-RX and the COMBAT Portent are the only -12 big barrel bats available for machine and kid pitch.

My son is 10, 63 inches tall and weighs 115 lbs. and can launch the ball when he makes connection. He currently has a TPX 30 drop 10 and his swing is slow, so a lot of strike outs. We're thinking a 30 drop 12 would be better fit for him. He's borrowed a 28 inch 18 oz. bat from another kid and hit well, but it's too short. Looking at the 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL: SLCT14-RX Senior League bat 30 drop 12. Thoughts on the size, weight, etc? Thanks so much, Kim

According to your son's height and weight I would recommend a 31" Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX). If he is more comfortable with a 30" length he can swing it. The Catalyst (SLCT14-RX) in a 30" 18 oz. would be a nice choice if he wants a fast swing speed which would help him generate more power on the ball.

My son is 10 years old, weighs 65lbs and is about 4' 2". What size should I get him? Thanks.

We would recommend a 28" for your son in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX).

My son is playing 8U coach pitch this year and moves to kid pitch this fall. He is big for his size, 55" tall and 103 pounds. He hits best right now with his Louisville Slugger Lazer which is a 29" 16 oz. bat. I bought him a DeMarini Distance last year which is a 30" 18 oz. bat, but he doesn't have the "pop" I'd like to see. Would this be a good bat for him moving forward? If so, what weight and length would you recommend?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) is a very high performing composite bat. It is a great option for him. We recommend a 30" 18 oz. bat for his height and weight.

My son is 10 yrs old, 57" tall and weighs 70 lbs. He is looking for the 30/18 to give him plate coverage and a light weight bat. Is the 30/18 too long for him?

Based on his approximate height and weight the suggested size we would recommend would be 29 inches. However, moving up to 30 inches would also be an option as well. Ultimately, it will come down to what the player feels most comfortable swinging. However, I don't think the 30 inches would be too long.

My son is 8 and small for his age (4'0", 51 lbs). He plays machine pitch this year and will move to kid pitch next year. I am trying to choose the right length/weight for him. What are your thoughts?

Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 28" 16 oz model in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) Senior League.

My son is 8 years old and is in kid pitch baseball this year. He is 48 inches tall and weighs 44 pounds. Would you recommend this bat for him?

As long as the league you are playing in allows the XL barrel this bat would be a great choice for your player. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) has a nice light swing weight with a -12 length to weight ratio. For a player of your son's size we would suggest the 27 or 28 inch model of the Catalyst XL.

My 9 yr. old son is in kid pitch baseball this year. He is 51 inches tall and weighs about 60 lbs. Would this be a good bat and what size would you recommend?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) is a great option for a nine year old. It is very high performing. Based on his height and weight we recommend a 29" bat.

What does the XL on the barrel stand for? I have seen the same bat without the XL.

The XL on the barrel for the 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) Senior League means that it will be a 2 3/4" barrel.

I'm looking for a new bat for my 8 year old. Is the 28" 16 oz. version of this bat suitable a machine pitch league?

This 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) Senior League bat would be a good choice for a machine pitch league. The fact that this is a Senior League model means that it should hold up better to higher pitch speeds than a Junior Big Barrel bat that is meant for coach pitch play. And it's one of the lighter Senior League options out there with the -12 length to weight ratio.

Does this bat come in a bat pack?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) Senior League does not come in a bat pack. Bat packs consist of older and discontinued models. Last years Catalyst XL, the Louisville Slugger TPX Catalyst XL (SL13CXL) Senior League, is available in a few bat packs.

My son is 11 years old, 5'1" and 115 lbs. He is not upper body strong. What size bat do you suggest?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX Senior League) would be recommended in a 31" 19 oz. at his current size and age.

Is the 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL: SLCT14-RX Senior League bat the newer model of the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Catalyst XL SL13CXL bat? What are the differences between the two?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL: SLCT14-RX Senior League is the newer model of the 2013 Catalyst XL Senior League. They will both feature the same composite material and the same balanced swing weight. The major difference is the color scheme on the bat.

My son weighs 60 pounds and stands 4 and half feet tall. He is 8 years old and is starting to play 9u travel baseball, would the 27" 15 oz be a good choice for bat speed and extra pop?

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 28" 2014 Louisville Slugger Catalyst XL (SLCT14-RX) Senior League. However, dropping down to a 27" model will help increase his bat speed, because of the lighter weight.
