Questions and Answers for Louisville Slugger M9 Maple Wood Baseball Bat: M9C271BHC Adult
What's is the barrel size for this bat? My son is 13, 5'4" about 120-125 lbs. Entering into couple wood bat tournaments in couple of weeks. Wondering if I should go with youth models (2.25 " barrel ) such as Chase Utley Marucci 31" which has -5, or find a adult model with drop -3, which will have larger barrel (2.5") and maybe go to 30" length? He currently swings metal/composite 31" 26 oz. -5.

I bought this bat for my son,he's 16 . First time he used it for BP it broke in half.The break was approx 2.5 in down from where the bat changes to black. The break was clean and perpendicular to the bat.The bat appears to have a defect at the break point, my sons coach had freshly taped the sweet spot so its obvious no hits were outside of the tape. It still had the stickers from the store. Can it be replaced?Should have lasted more than 50 cuts..
