Questions and Answers for Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBB14

109961

I bought this bat not knowing it was kind of top heavy. What is one way I can adjust to the bat being top heavy?

Like anything else in sports, getting used to the weight of a bat like the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) will be about developing muscle memory. I usually recommend regularly swinging the bat in hitting situations. Going outside and swinging the bat about 50 times with good form once a day or every other day can help build up your muscle memory to be used to the feel of that bat.

Is it true that the BBCOR decertification process has been implemented for this bat in the Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth division? I am specifically looking at the 33 inch -3 for my son.

BBCOR certification is a process that takes place outside of league specific rules. It would not be that the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) can just be removed of its BBCOR certification but rather that a league can restrict its use. We have not gotten any specific information on this bat facing bans of any kind.

What is the difference between this bat and the Marucci Black 2?

The Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) and the Marucci Black 2 are the same bat. The only difference is the release date and the cosmetic appearance. The MCBB14 was released in 2014 and the Black 2 was released in 2013.

I am looking for more speed in my swing, and a large sweet spot. Would this be a good bat for me?

The Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) will have an extended barrel that will give it a larger sweet spot while having an evenly balanced swing weight to increase swing speed.

I ordered this bat and got it in today. I'm going to have to return it, because I'm not allowed to use it in my league. However, there is no receipt.

We would be happy to provide you with an e-mailed copy of your receipt. Give us a call at 1-866-321-2287.

I know that the BBCOR specification requires the bat to be -3 without the grip. When I received my son's 32/29 bat, it weighed 31.5 ounces. Is it normal for a grip to add 2.5 ounces to the overall weight?

The weight the grip would add would vary based on the material used and how much of it is used on the specific bat you got. The industry standard allows for around a 2-2.5 ounce variance in the listed weight versus the actual weight of bats like the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14). If you feel that your bat is an unacceptable weight, the manufacturer may be able to work with you on swapping that out. Of course, if it is unused, we can also take it back for you. If you have used it to hit with though, the manufacturer would be your best bet to get that corrected.

I am 5' tall and 95 lbs. What bat size would you suggest in BBCOR?

Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 31" model in the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14).

I'm 5'10" and 115 pounds freshman in high school. I'm a contact hitter. What length do you recommend, a 32"?

Based on your size, we recommend the 31" 28 oz. model in the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14).

Tom Expert ·Mar 08, 2015

I'm 5'6" 120 lbs. and a contact hitter. Is this Black better than the Cat 6?

Typically we would recommend a two piece model such as the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) for a contact hitter such as yourself. The two piece models allow for additional flex through the zone, and also eliminate shock and vibration. One piece models such as the Cat 6 will be far more stiff through the zone.

My son is 5'8" and 110 pounds. What is a good size bat for him?

I would recommend a 31" for your son in the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14).

I am a 5'9", 145 lb. contact hitter. What size should I get? What is the difference between the Black and the Black 2?

For a player of your size, our bat coach would recommend the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) in a 32" 29 oz. model. The Black and the Black 2 are the same bat from different years. The Black is the newer model and priced a little bit lower.

Joe Expert ·Mar 02, 2015

106887

Would this bat be like the 2015 VELO? I swung that bat and I really like it. If not, what would be a bat like the 2015 VELO?

The Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) features a composite handle and alloy barrel and will feel slightly end loaded compared to the Rawlings VELO. A model comparable to the VELO is the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614).

Jason Expert ·Mar 01, 2015

I am almost 5'7" and 131 lbs. I have a 31" wood bat, but I think I am going to grow soon. Do you think I should get a 31" or 32"?

Based on your current height and weight, we suggest a 31" model of the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) . If you are confident in your strength and swing speed though, you could certainly move up to a 32" model. You are not too far away from a 32" model being the suggested size.

Jason Expert ·Mar 01, 2015

106789

I am 5'9" and weigh 145 lbs. I am a contact hitter. Would you recommend this bat or the Rawlings 5150?

The Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) is a two piece hybrid with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The two piece design will offer more flex through the hitting zone. The Rawlings 5150 bat is a one piece alloy bat that will have a stiffer flex than the Black.

Is this bat illegal? I heard the 33 inch model is not allowed.

We have not received any notification of any of the sizes of the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) being made illegal. They would still be certified for play. The 2012 version of the bat in a 33 inch or 34 inch model were banned in the NCAA but not high school. This model is different and is legal.

Patrick Expert ·Feb 22, 2015

What is the difference between the MCBB14 and the MCBB20?

The Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) is the newer variation of the Marucci Black 2 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB20). The prices for older model are somewhat dependent upon our stock as well as the sizes.

Son is 6'0" and weighs 140-145 lbs. He is in the 8th grade. What bats do you suggest?

Some of the most popular bats for your son other than the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) will be the Easton MAKO, DeMarini CF7, RIP-IT Helium, and the Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR bats. We would highly suggest any and all of these!

I am 6' 1" and 215 lbs. What type and size bat should I use?

For a player of your size, our bat coach would recommend the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) in a 33" 30 oz. model. You could also consider a one-piece model such as the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614).

Joe Expert ·Feb 02, 2015

I am a 6 foot 1 sophomore and I weigh 145 pounds. Should I use a 32/29 or 33/30?

For your size we would recommend a 33" bat in the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14).

Allison Expert ·Jan 29, 2015

My son is a contact hitter and prefers a bat that can help produce more swing speed. Would the Black (two piece) or Cat 5 or 6 (one piece) better suit him? He is 5 foot 10 and weighs 135 pounds.

The two-piece design of the Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) provide a bit more flex which can create a whipping motion that will increase bat speed that would not be featured in the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614). So for bat speed, I would lean more toward the Black.

Patrick Expert ·Jan 19, 2015

104285

What is the difference between the Marucci Black and the CAT 5?

The Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) features a two-piece hybrid bat with a composite handle and an alloy barrel. The CAT 5 is a one-piece alloy bat. The CAT 5 has an extremely balanced swing weight and the Marucci Black has a slightly end loaded swing weight.

I am 5'10 180 lbs and mostly a power hitter. Will this model or the old Marucci Black 2 be better for me? Which one has more pop causing a greater drive?

The Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) and the Marucci Black 2 are the same bat. The only difference is updated cosmetic appearance. They both have an AZ3000 Aerospace Alloy Barrel and a Carbon Composite Handle and feature a slightly end loaded design. Both bats will provide you with equal pop and drive. Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 33" model.

How balanced is this bat? Is it top heavy?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) is a well balanced model that would not feel top heavy to most players. Some players that are new to BBCOR certified models may feel that it is slightly heavy due to the difference in drop weight from their previous bat.

Patrick Expert ·Dec 21, 2014

Do you recommend this over the marucci cat 6 because i am trying to choose between the two.

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) is a two-piece hybrid bat that is made for contact hitters. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is a one piece alloy which is typically recommended for power hitters. Either bat would be a great choice.

my 13 year old has a mako 29/20 drop 9 and I need to get a bbcor bat as he will be in high school this year what bat do you recommend under $200.00? He isn't really big so a lightweight balanced feel is important

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBB14 would be a excellent option. The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBB14 features an extended barrel, a massive sweet spot and a evenly balanced swing weight.

Should I get this or the Voodoo OVERLORD? I used the Voodoo Paradox last year, but I don't know if I should switch.

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) has a slight end loaded design, but it will feel more balanced than the Voodoo OVERLORD. If you are looking for more of an end loaded feel, and like the the Voodoo you currently have, then switching to the Voodoo OVERLORD is the best option for you. It is typically best to stick with the manufacturer you have had the most success with in the past.

I have heard good things about this bat and want to give it a shot. I am hesitant to buy it because I owned a cat 5 and a marucci team bat and i hated the feel of both those. I also ended up breaking both, which almost never happens to me. So I guess I am asking how durable is this bat compared to Rawlings or Easton bbcors? Also how similar is this bat to the team marucci and cat 5?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) is a seamless two-piece alloy bat. It features an extended barrel and enhanced sweet spot as well as a ring-free barrel. In terms of durability, this bat is comparable to the Rawlings 5150 BBCOR. The Cat 5 is a one-piece alloy bat with a slightly lower grade alloy than the Marucci Black.

Joe Expert ·Dec 01, 2014

What bat would you most recommend around/under $250 for a power hitter?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) would be a great choice for a power hitter. Marucci has designed this hybrid bat (composite handle/alloy barrel) with a seamless connection point, which won't allow a power hitter to lose anything due to bat flex. Also, the extended barrel is attractive for any power hitter, as the longer barrel will make up for swings that could have produced miss-hits in the past. Certainly consider the Marucci Black!

I know when swinging my Easton Mako in colder weather it does not perform as well. When I looked into it, it turns out that Easton does not recommend swinging their better two piece bats in temps below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Would this be a good bat to replace my Mako in those colder temperatures?

Really all bats can see issues in cold weather because the ball can condense in temperatures below 55 degrees and it can become harder. While alloy barrel bats like the 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) do stand up in cold weather better than composite barrel bats like the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK), they still can have issues when hitting these harder balls.

im about to start high school ball and im not sure if i should get the marucci black, the cat 5, marucci one, or marucci team. i am more of a contact hitter, which would you recommend?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) is specifically designed for contact hitters with a two-piece hybrid design featuring a composite handle and the AZ3000 Aerospace-grade alloy. The 2014 Marucci ONE BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCB1) is going to be very similar to the MCBB14 with the same AZ3000 Aerospace-grade alloy, except it is a one-piece design. The Marucci CAT 5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCB2) is going to be very similar to the MCB1, as it is a well-balanced one-piece design, except it will be manufactured from a slightly lesser grade alloy.

I am excited to play my first year of college baseball this year but I am looking for the right bat. Which bat is recommended for a more of a contact hitter than power surge. I'm looking between the 2014 Marucci Black and the 2014 Rawlings 5150, please help.

Both the Rawlings 5150 and the 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) can be swung by power or contact guys. The Black BBCOR may feel slightly less barrel heavy which will feel better during your swing. It will make your bat speed faster.

By the looks of the bat, it seems like it has a one-piece feel, does it?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) will have an internal two-piece, half and half construction. But as you said, the outside feel of the handle to the barrel will feel not have a connection piece. It would seem like a one-piece bat to the naked eye.

Is the MCBB14 listed as certified anywhere? Is it for use in any level of play? Little League web page has the Marucci Black decertified, period!

Both the 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) and the Easton XL1 are equally great bats depending on the type of hitter you are. The Marucci Black has a more balanced swing weight and is typically better for contact hitters. The Easton XL1 has a more end loaded swing weight and is usually better for power hitters.

I heard that the 2013 Marucci Black 33/30 BBCOR bat was decertified for NCAA and HS play (Illegal). Is this true and what about the 2014 Marucci 33/30 BBCOR bat?

The 2012 Marucci Black (MCB11) was banned in the 33" and 34". The 2013 Marucci Black 2 (MCBB20) was not decertified by NCAA or High School play and neither is the 2014 Marucci Black (MCBB14).

Which is better the Marucci Black or the Rawlings VELO?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14) and the Rawlings VELO would be awesome bat choices. The Black would eliminate more hand sting and vibration. The VELO would swing slightly lighter. Both bats have a very high performance and great durability.

I cannot decide between this bat and the Rawlings Trio. Could you help? I hit for a high average with some power here and there.

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14) would be a very high performing bat. The handle technology will help eliminate much of the hand sting felt on mishits. The Rawlings Trio and its composite end cap technology will provide a very light weight and balanced feel. The performance and pop will also be very high.

Brandon Expert ·Jun 09, 2014

Is there a chance the 2014 Black or the 2013 Black 2 will be decertified? I see the price has come down, and I was wondering if that was why.

There is always a chance that any bat could be decertified, but the price drop on the 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14) and 2013 Black 2 is not related to any ruling on these bats. The only reason the price has dropped, is that these models are no longer being produced. Marucci will release a 2015 product line closer to the Fall, and they have allowed us to drop the listed price on previous years' models.

How does this bat compare to the MAKO? Also, will there be a Marucci Black 3?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR: (MCBB14) and the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: (BB14MK) will both be high performing balanced bats. The biggest difference will be the overall structure. The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14) will be a hybrid design incorporating an alloy barrel and composite handle. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) will consist of a two-piece composite design, but both models will provide similar flex. As for Marucci, I am not entirely sure if they will come out with a Marucci Black 3 at this time. However, some of their new products are estimated to come out around October of this year.

Is this model of the Marucci Black more balanced than the Marucci Black 2? If so, does it have less pop than the last model?

We have a Marucci Black in a 30" 25 oz and love it. We have to go to BBCOR. What is the difference between these bats?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14) has the exact same design as the Senior League Black. The main differences is the length to weight ratio is a -3 on the BBCOR and the restrictions are higher. The BBCOR Black might not perform quite as well as the Senior League bat because it has higher restrictions on the bat for safety.

Both the 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14) and the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR (DXVXC) are both going to be very similar. They both are two-piece hybrid design's. I would go with the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR (DXVXC).

I bat 6th for my high school team as a freshman, and I'm more of a contact hitter, but show flashes of power sometimes. I currently have the Demarini Vexxum. Should I go with the marucci Black, or stay with the Demarini bats with the new overlord?

The 2014 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD BBCOR (DXVDC) is end loaded and designed for a power hitter. The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14) is not as end loaded and is better suited for a contact hitter with some power.

kid is a number four or five hitter good contact hitter with power. Height 6'2 weight 190 what brand do you recommend. Likes a well balanced bat with 32 or 33 in length?

The 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR: (DXCFC) would be a great option to check out, and would fit his playing style extremely well. The two-piece composite design will allow some good flex, and the paradox composite used will also provide excellent power. This model is extremely balanced and will be very easy to generate fast bat speed. DeMarini uses very high quality materials, and has received some excellent reviews as well.

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14 Adult) would be a great model for you as a 2 hole hitter. Another good, balanced option would be the 2014 Marucci ONE BBCOR.

Whats the difference between this model and last years model?

The 2014 Marucci Black and the 2013 Marucci Black2 are both comprised of the same carbon composite handle seamlessly transitioned into the extended AZ3000 aerospace alloy barrel, but Marucci has refined the profile and lowered the balance point on the new 2014 Black to make this power-hitters dream bat even more balanced and better feeling than ever before.

I am starting high school and don't know if i should get the 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR or the 2014 Marucci Elite BBCOR. I am 5'6" 115 lbs. What should I get?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14) and the 2014 Marucci Elite BBCOR (MCBE14) are both two-piece bats with a composite handle and alloy barrel. Both bats are very high performing. The Marucci Elite is more balanced due to the composite material at the end of the bat.

I am 5' 9", 235 pounds, and a power hitter. Would the Marucci Black 2014 or the Marucci Elite 2014 be a better bat? And is this bat a two-piece?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR: (MCBB14) Adult offers a larger barrel length than the Elite which makes it a bit less balanced. As a power hitter, you can most likely swing the Black efficiently even though it may feel a bit heavier. In the end, it comes down to your preference toward the swing weight. The Elite is the most balanced bat in the Marucci product line, but both of these bats are two-piece seamless hybrids that offer a stiff flex on contact. The stiff flex is another characteristic that a power hitter would benefit from.

Which bat feels more like a wood bat? The Marucci Black or the Easton XL1? I prefer wood bats. But have to use a metal bat for high school.

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR: MCBB14 Adult bat would have more of a one-piece feel. The seamless hybrid design would feel stiffer like a wood bat. The XL1 will be a two-piece design.

Okay, I am looking for a slightly end loaded bat but not too much. I am a contact and power hitter both. I hit gaps a lot. Would the 2014 Marucci Black be better for me or the 2014 Demarini Voodoo Paradox? Thank you.

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR: MCBB14 Adult is slightly end loaded and would be a great fit. The 2014 Voodoo is stiffer, and more end loaded, better for a power hitter.

Which bat has a longer barrel, the 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR or the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR? Which bat is better, the Marucci Black or the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR?

Both are good bats. The 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR will have a longer barrel than the 2014 Marucci Black. The Easton XL1 will have a composite barrel, so after it is broken in it will have more of a trampoline effect than the Marucci Black.

I'm a power gap hitter and am undecided between this bat and the 2014 Marucci Elite. Which would suit me better?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR: MCBB14 Adult and Elite are both well balanced two-piece hybrid designs with an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The Elite goes one step further and replaces the seamlessly transitions the last few inches of the barrel to composite to remove some "dead weight," resulting in a more balanced model. This added technology would be more beneficial to a contact hitter more than a power hitter, such as yourself, but both are great options.

I need help on deciding on if I should by this bat or 2014 Marucci One Can you post a video on each bat, or let me know which is better for a gap hitter with pop?

The 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR: MCBB14 Adult bat would be my pick. I like the AZ3000 Aerospace alloy barrel and Carbon composite handle. The swing weight and silencer grip are also great for your type of hitter.
