Questions and Answers for Louisville Slugger Assault Youth Baseball Bat: YBAS14-RR
My son is 4 feet tall and 47 lbs with a quick bat. I've always purchased a smaller / lighter bat because of his size. Would you recommend a 27" or 28" length? Any other recommendations other than the Louisville Slugger Assault?
For a player of his size, our bat coach recommends the Louisville Slugger Assault Youth Baseball Bat (YBAS14-RR) in a 27" length. Another model that you could definitely consider would be the 2015 Louisville Slugger Omaha 515 Youth Baseball Bat (YBO5153).
I can't read the label in the pictures provided. Does it have an "Approved for Pony League play" stamp on it?
Yes, the 2014 Louisville Slugger Assault Youth (YBAS14-RR) features the Approved for play in Pony League stamp on it.
Does this bat have an extended barrel? Please compare it to the Easton S500C. We are considering either this bat as a backup or upgrading to the Marucci Black 2.
The 2014 Louisville Slugger Assault: (YBAS14-RR) will not have an extended barrel. It will be a one- piece alloy, and if your game resembles a power player, I would suggest this model. The 2014 Easton S500C: (YB14S500C) will be a two-piece hybrid design incorporating an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The two-piece structure will provide a little bit more flex, and this is typically preferred by contact hitters. This model will also be very similar to the Marucci Black 2: (MYBB20).
How does this bat compare to the Easton Reflex? My son is a contact hitter, but not a power hitter. I was considering the Omaha as a possible replacement too.
The 2014 Louisville Slugger Assault Youth (YBAS14-RR) is very similar to the Easton Reflex. They are both one-piece alloy designs with a balanced swing weight and a -13 length to weight ratio.
Do you make a 2 5/8?
The 2014 Louisville Slugger Assault: SLAS14-RR Senior League is the 2 5/8" model. It has a drop 10 length to weight ratio.
Is this bat comparable to a 2013 Easton XL3 with regards to pop and general feel of the bat? I haven't been able to find many reviews and am intersted in this bat for my 7 year old. He tried an XL3 at practice and loved the pop he got with it, but the barrel is larger than 2 1/4 inches, which exceeds the barrel size for the league we play in.
The 2014 Louisville Slugger Assault Youth: YBAS14-RR will have a one-piece, fully alloy, very balanced design. It would be great for a contact/gap hitter. The Easton XL3 was also a one-piece all alloy design but with an extended barrel. Both really do have great swing feels. I see more power guys liking the Easton XL-Series.
