I am 13 years old and I play baseball for a 13u Travel teams. Is this a good bat for me?

The Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior Youth Baseball Bat (YB12W) would be a great option for a contact hitter looking for a great option to work on bat speed and bat control. The alloy design means that it will be good to go right out of the wrapper, so a break in time will not be necessary. The one-piece design will provide a stiffer feel on contact as well.

My son is a beginner. He is 11 years old and weighs 92 lbs. Is this a good bat? What size?

Based on the player's age, I would probably suggest 30". As for the weight, this is harder to determine because ultimately it depends on the strength of the player. The Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior Youth Baseball Bat: (YB12W) would be a good bat to start with. It is very balanced, and features a one-piece alloy design. Therefore, this bat will be very hot right out of the wrapper and will provide players with instant pop.

What causes these bats to dent? This is my second Warrior bat. The first one dented in two locations. I decided to give it a second try since my son hits it so well.

The Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior (YB12W Youth) bat will be a fully alloy designed bat. Alloy bat's made from this lesser expensive material can sometimes dent slightly more easily. The manufacturer recommends hitting these bats at or above 60 degrees. Also, I would only hit true leather baseballs with this bat.

Will this bat be okay to use if the coach pitch league throws overhand? My son is 6 yrs old and weighs about 42 lbs, what bat size do you recommend? The little league rules are only regulated to 2 1/4" barrels.

Yes, the Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior (YB12W) would be an awesome model for you. The 2 1/4" barrel and the light weight design will be ideal for your son. Based on your son's age and weight, I would definitely recommend the 27" 14 oz.

My son is 4 (42in 42 lbs), this is his first year. All of the boys have bats except him because I wanted him to have a chance to try out others before we bought one. All of the others seem too heavy. Would this be good in a -12 and 27in?

Yes. A 27" 15 oz. model would be a good size.

Is this a good bat for an 11 year old who's previous bat is a 30 inch -12? He is not tall, but 120 lbs. Good swing.

We typically don't recommend going down in weight. The -13 Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior (YB12W) is better for a player that doesn't have good bat speed. We recommend a -11 or a -10 if he has a good swing.

The Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior (YB12W) Youth features the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp and is not approved for ASA play. If you are looking for a slow pitch softball bat, the 2014 Louisville Slugger Warrior Slow Pitch (SBWR14-RR) is approved for ASA.

Hello, my son is 7 years old 4'1" and weighs 70 lbs. What would be a good size bat for him? This is his 1st year I am looking at the Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior YB12W and Rawlings Plasma: YBPLA4 Youth. Which do you prefer? Thanks!

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 28" model. The Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior (YB12W) Youth and the 2013 Rawlings Plasma (YBPLA4) Youth are both one-piece alloy designs with balanced swing weights. The TPX Warrior is a drop 13 and the Rawlings Plasma is a drop 12. Since he is just starting to play, the TPX Warrior is lighter in weight and will be easier for him to swing.

My son is 6 1/2, 3'11" and around 45 lbs. playing Coach Pitch. What size barrel would you recommend for him?

Most Coach Pitch bats are generally 2 5/8" or 2 3/4" at length. If there isn't any league rules permitting a 2 3/4" barrel, then I would go with that. A bigger barrel will only give your son more room to hit and add confidence to his game.

My son is 5 feet tall and weighs 90 lbs. He is swinging a TPX Warrior 29/17 to help him get through the zone quicker. I see smaller players using larger bats. He likes this bat, is this appropriate size for him? Thoughts?

Based on his height and weight, a 30" 17 oz. model of the Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior: YB12W would be the most suitable option.

How would you compare this bat with the Rawlings Plasma? My son currently has an older model Warrior bat and I'm just curious as to the comparison.

The Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior: YB12W Youth bat will be a one-piece all alloy model. It is ultra light weight and will be very balanced in swing weight. It comes in a -13 size. The 2013 Rawlings Plasma: YBPLA4 Youth bat comes in -12 sizing. It is also one-piece all alloy material. This Plasma will feature an extended barrel with a massive sweet spot. It will have the soft touch grip and also have the new updated USSSA 1.15 stamp. This bat will be very balanced and easy to swing also.

How is this bat compared to Combat B1? Which is better in pop and more sweet spot? Looking for a 27/14.

If you are looking for a 27" 14oz. the Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior: YB12W Youth bat would be the choice. The COMBAT B1 Alloy: B1ALYB1 -12 Youth only would come in drop 12 sizing. It would be available in a 27" 15oz. Both bats would come in One-Piece designs made of all Alloy. Both bats would have barrel diameter's of 2 1/4". Also, both bats would come with a Full 12 Month Manufacturer's Warranty.

The Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior and the Worth Lithium AMP are both great one-piece fully aluminum designs that are available in 27" 14 oz. that would be great options for your son.

We got this bat for our granddaughter based on her height and weight (30 in 17 ounce). The Texas coach says it cannot be used in youth softball tournament play, yet she hits very well with it. It has a 2 1/4. What is wrong with it for softball?

The bat is intended for youth boys baseball. Some girls fastpitch leagues do allow this bat. But it sounds like your daughter's does not. This bat would come the closest to what she has and be legal: 2012 Louisville Slugger TPS Mystic: FP12Y Fastpitch.
