My 12 y.o. daughter uses the Catalyst FP12C2 (31") as her "good" bat (and loves it). I need a similar length & weight & feel (& much cheaper) practice bat for use with pitching machines -- would this be a reasonable bat to consider for that purpose?
The Louisville Slugger TPS Catalyst Youth: FP12CY -11.5 Fastpitch bat would be a decent choice. The biggest difference is that the FP12CY is going to be a youth model and it is also an alloy design versus the composite design of the FP12C2. With that being said, you are only paying $29.99 for a practice bat and you are saving the life span of her game bat.
Is this a composite?
No, the Louisville Slugger TPS Catalyst Youth: FP12CY -11.5 Fastpitch bat is a one-piece alloy design. The TPS Catalyst is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF.
Would this bat be a good bat for a 7 year old starting coach pitch softball? Do you suggest a different bat?

The TPS Catalyst has a nice balanced swing weight, so it won't swing as heavy as some of the other bats on the market.
