Looking for a bat for my son in machine pitch. I like the drop on this to go with the big barrel. Will this work ok for machine pitch?
Junior Big Barrel bats really aren't meant to withstand live pitching at speeds greater than 40 mph. If the machines in your machine pitch league are under 40mph, then you should be good with the JBB11S1. If greater, you'll have to look at a Youth Big Barrel bat.

If the bat has the USSSA 1.15 stamp, it can be used in kid-pitch USSSA travel tournaments, right? Why does JustBats suggest this bat is for coach pitch only play?
This is a coach pitch bat. This bat is not built or designed to withstand high velocity pitches and hits. The walls are thinner and not as durable as they need to be to withstand kid and/or machine pitch. You could use it for kid pitch, but you will more than likely run into durability issues with the bat since is not designed for that kind of play.
Our coach pitch league uses real baseballs will this be ok with this bat. If it is ok will this have more pop than the aluminum big barrel Easton bat?
Junior Big Barrel bats are designed for Coach Pitch baseball, and can be used with real baseballs. As long as the coaches aren't hurling the ball in there at speeds greater than 40 mph or so, this will be a great bat. Junior Big Barrel bats should not be used in kid pitch leagues though.

My son (7 years old)will move up and down between 8u and 9u both kid pitch. He is on the small size and uses his speed to get on base. Would you recomend this bat (28/16) or the S1 in the 2 5/8 (27/17)?
The JBB11S1 should only be used in coach pitch because of the thinner walls. The Easton S1: SL11S110 Senior League would be a better choice for kid pitch.
