Is there a difference between this bat and the new 715 Select bat that will be coming out later for the Youth/SL big barrel?

Yes. While the 2014 Louisville Slugger Vertex XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SLVT14-RX) is a seamless hybrid design, the 2015 Louisville Slugger Select 715 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLS715X) will feature a clear transition point in the form of the TRU3 connection piece. This piece will allow for more flex and better sting and vibration protection.

My son loves his 2013 Omaha. It is all worn out. What bat could I get that would be real similar, without buying another Omaha? I would like as similar as possible. Thanks.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Vertex XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SLVT14-RX) will not feel like the Omaha. The closest bat comparison from Louisville Slugger to the Omaha bat is the 2014 Assault bat. They will both feature the same one-piece fully alloy design. They both will also feel very balanced in swing weight.
