We live in Ohio and play a lot of cold weather games. I'm looking at the Marucci Elite MSBE14 and the Easton Mako. What are the pros and cons of each in Ohio weather?
Both the 2014 Marucci Elite (MSBE14) and the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) Senior League bats are top of the line, high performance models. Unfortunately, durability issues that arise in cold weather situations, generally, have more to do with the baseball than the bat. In weather below 55 degrees, the core of the baseball can condense and the ball can become harder. At that point, the ball becomes more like something the bat is not intended to hit and this can cause durability problems with all bats. Given the higher price point of these bats, it would be advisable to use a different bat in colder weather situations. Often, players will use a wood bat or a bat at a lower price point in these situations that would not be has expensive to replace. Both bats do feature a warranty from the manufacturer.
