Questions and Answers for Marucci David Ortiz Ash Wood Baseball Bat: DO34 Adult
Are the DO34 and Papi34 turns identical?
The Marucci David Ortiz Ash Wood Baseball Bat (DO34 Adult) and the Marucci David Ortiz Maple Wood Baseball Bat (PAPI34) will be identical specs with the only real difference being the bat material.
Does David Ortiz use the DO34 or the PAPI34?
Both the Marucci David Ortiz Ash Wood Baseball Bat (DO34) Adult and the Marucci David Ortiz Maple Wood Baseball Bat (PAPI34) are modeled after the bat that David Ortiz uses on game days. Between the two, I would say he would be most likely to use the PAPI34 because of the maple design. Maple tends to be harder than ash and also runs a bit heavier as well. Both bats will feature the same specs, with the main difference being the material used in the construction of the bats (ash vs. maple).
Does a harder wood mean a faster ball exit speed? I'm trying to decide what type of wood I want my wood bat to be. I know the differences between ash/maple/birch.
