Questions and Answers for Marucci Team: MSBT10 Blue Senior League
Other than the obvious barrel size difference between a 2 3/4 and 2 5/8 bat with this Marucci bat, what are you giving up or gaining?
The 2013 Marucci Team: MSBT10 Senior League will have the same weight distribution and performance as the 2013 Marucci Team: MSB210 Senior League. The only difference between the two bats will be the barrel diameter.
Would this be good for playing in Juniors league?
The 2013 Marucci Team: MSBT10 Blue Senior League bat is a balanced, one-piece alloy that is approved for play in the Junior League of Little League baseball.
Does the bat really get a lot cracks and dents?
The 2013 Marucci Team: MSBT10 Blue Senior League bat can dent as can any other all alloy bat on the market. The best way to not have this happen is to use the bat only against real baseballs and not the dimpled cage balls.
How does this bat compare to the 2013 XL3? Similarly balanced, "pop", swing weights, performance, etc.? My son is 10 years old, 95 lbs and almost 5' tall...size recommendation? Thanks!
The 2013 Marucci Team: MSBT10 Blue Senior League and 2013 Easton XL3 are both one-piece alloy designs that will perform at comparable levels. The Team comes in a -5 and a -10 and is well balanced than the end loaded XL3, which comes in a -5 and -9. We'd 'recommend a 30" for a player your son's size.
My son is 8 years old. He is 54" tall and 70 lbs. He has slightly above average swing speed and pretty good pop with his small diameter Nike bat. The pitching machine league we just joined allows big barrel bats and I'm looking to upgrade. I got him an Easton Senior League Reflex (SL13RX9) at 29/20 but his swing speed is noticeably slower. I was thinking of getting a bat pack with 29/19 and 28/18 versions of this bat. Would that be a good fit or would you recommend a different bat. Thanks!
Based on his age, size, and described hitting mechanics, a 19 or 18 oz. model would suit him well. The 2013 Marucci Team: MSBT10 is a balanced bat that he should be more comfortable swinging compared to his 20 oz. Easton Reflex.
What would be the best Senior League bat for a 12 year old, this bat or any other bat?
The 2013 Marucci Team: MSBT10 Blue Senior League is a one-piece bat, better suited for a power hitter. If you are a contact hitter the 2013 Marucci Black 2: MSBB28 Senior League would be a better choice.
I am concerned about the bat from the reviews I have read about how the bat breaks and the end cap comes off. What do you think also? How will the bat compare the the 2013 CF5?
Marucci makes quality bats and the 2013 Marucci Team is no exception. There is a 12 month manufacturer's warranty to cover any defects associated with this bat. This bat is very different from the 2013 CF5. This is a one-piece alloy bat. The CF5 is a two-piece fully composite bat.
Which bat has more pop? The Marucci Team or the Rawlings Velo? Which bat has a lighter swing weight?
Both the 2013 Marucci Team: MSBT10 Blue Senior League and the Rawlings VELO: SLVELO Senior League bat will have similar pop and performance. I have heard through customer feedback that the Rawlings VELO will have a lighter swing weight. The bat is designed to increase swing velocity. Both bats will be one-piece all alloy models.
Is this a good bat to switch a kid to that currently uses a Easton S3 27'17' 2 5/8?
The 2013 Marucci Team: MSBT10 Blue Senior League and the Easton S3 are both one-piece alloy bats. They will be similar in performance and feel.
