What contact bat can I get for my 11 year old for baseball?
The 2013 DeMarini M2M: DXM2L Youth bat would be a good selection. Also, DeMarini has another model called the 2014 Vexxum. It will provide a composite handle and an alloy barrel. Both will provide great bat speeds and help eliminate hand sting.

Both the DeMarini M2M and the DeMarini CF5 are great bats and will be good for both power and contact hitters.
Is this bat an option for 10 year old softball girls?
No. The 2013 DeMarini M2M: DXM2L is a baseball bat that is not certified for use in softball leagues or associations. You will want to look at "fastpitch softball" bats.
What bat would be better for a 10 year old who weighs 75 lbs? We a trying to decide between the M2M or the Easton S3?
The Easton S3 and the DeMarini M2M are both great bats. The M2M will flex because of the two-piece design making it perfect for a contact hitter, while the Easton S3 will be a stiff one-piece design usually preferred by a power hitter.
Is this bat ASA approved? I checked their website and it only lists bats up to 2011 models. You don't mention the ASA in your approval list just the USSSA. What is the difference in the two organizations?
ASA and USSSA are two governing bodies for softball. USSSA governs both baseball and softball. The 2013 DeMarini M2M is a baseball bat so it will not be ASA certified. Only softball bats will have the ASA certifications.
I am more of a contact hitter, but I bomb one every now and then. Last year I hit an inside the park grand slam with my 2011 Vexxum. I'm looking for a nice bat to add to my bat collection. Is this a good bat?
Yes. This is a two piece bat with a longer barrel to increase the sweet spot. It will have some flex and be great for line drives and bombs.
Will this bat make me a power hitter and maybe even hit homeruns?
The 2013 DeMarini M2M is a good choice for power hitters since it has a stiff flex and excellent pop. Hitting home runs has to do with a combination of swing speed and mechanics.
Do you think this is one of the best bats? If not please tell me which one is.
The 2013 DeMarini M2M is a high quality bat with a lot of pop. I would also recommend the DeMarini Voodoo and DeMarini Vexxum.
What weight to length would you recommend for a 8 yr old, average height and weight?
Depending on his strength and bat speed, most 8 year old players use a 28" 16oz or a 29" 17oz. For exact measurements, check our our bat coach;;http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/.
In colder weather (ie 50 degrees) would a one piece alloy be better than this two piece?
A one piece or a two piece will be fine for 50 degrees.
How is the swing weight on this model? How will it compare to the 2013 Voodoo?
The 2013 DeMarini M2M has a pretty balanced swing weight. The 2013 DeMarini Voodoo will have a slight end loaded feel to it. In terms of performance, these two bats will perform just about the same.
