I'm in high school and I'm 5'5'' and weigh 120 lbs. What bat should I use?
I would suggest a 30" 27 oz Marucci Team BBCOR (MCBT Red).
I'm in high school and I am 5'2" 110 lbs. What brand and size bat should I be using? I'm pretty strong for my size, and I am not sure what to use.
Based on your approximate height and weight, the suggested length we would recommend would be 29 inches. If you are a power hitter, I would probably recommend a one-piece alloy design. The Rawlings VELO BBCOR: (BBVELO) would be a great choice to take a look at it. It will be very balanced and fairly easy to generate a fast bat swing with. It will also be extremely powerful, and has a great trampoline effect. If your playing style resembles a contact hitter, I would suggest taking a look at the 2014 Easton S2 BBCOR: (BB14S2). This model will be a two-piece hybrid design and will provide a little bit more flex. It will also have a great sweet spot, and has been highly reviewed as well.
167 pounds and 5' 10". What size Marucci bat would you suggest?
Based on the information you gave, I recommend a 33" 30 oz. size bat in the Marucci Team BBCOR (MCBT Red).

We would suggest using a 32" in the Marucci Team BBCOR (MCBT) Red at your height and weight.
I'm a high school ball player. I'm 5'7", 135 lbs. My summer coach continues to tell my dad that I should swing a 30 inch bat. I feel I have trouble covering the outside edge. Is a 32" Marucci Team BBCOR a good choice?
Based on your height and weight we recommend a 32" bat. This should help you cover the outside of the plate.
What's the difference between Marucci Team and Marucci One other than "balanced swing weight" ?
The 2014 Marucci One features an entirely new profile inspired by Marucciâ€™s Big League Board of Directors and was designed to be even more balanced than the 2013 Marucci Team. The improved balance is the result of the Oneâ€™s new shape and wall thickness profiles. Players will also notice new professionally-inspired knob taper shapes, which many have said offers even better feel and control.
How does this bat feature such a low pricepoint compared to other BBCOR bat?
This Marucci Team BBCOR (MCBT) Red Adult bat is a 2013 model and is on Closeout, so we are able to drop the price from the Manufacturer's Advertised Price. This is still a great choice, and it's a new bat that's backed by Marucci's manufacturer's warranty.

The Marucci Team BBCOR is only certified for BBCOR and not USSSA. We do have other bats on our website that would have the USSSA stamp.

The Marucci Team BBCOR (MCBT) uses top of the line alloy materials. It will be very durable and high performing.
Would the Marucci Team and Rawlings 5150 have similar performance (pop) and durability?
Given their single piece alloy designs and the fact that they both conform to the BBCOR standards of performance; the Marucci Team BBCOR (MCBT) and the 2014 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BB513) will have similar characteristics in performance and durability.
I am 5' 8" and 135 lbs. I am playing 14 years old AAA. Do you make this bat as a -5, 33"? I am a power hitter and I like to pull the ball to left field. It needs to be a BBCOR bat.
The Marucci Team BBCOR: MCBT Red Adult is a BBCOR model and would meet the requirements for your league. All BBCOR bats are going to be a -3 length to weight ratio. If you have to have a BBCOR model, you would not be allowed to swing a 33" -5. They do make a Senior League model of the Marucci Team, but they do not have a 33" -5, and it would not be legal for your league.

Based on your height and weight you should be using a 31" 28 oz.

The Marucci Team BBCOR: MCBT Red Adult is a one-piece alloy, the Marucci Black is a two-piece hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Elite is a two-piece hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle, but the last few inches of the barrel are replaced with composite. This takes "dead weight" out of the Elite, making it the most balanced of the three.

Which bat would you recommend for more of a contact hitter, this bat or the Easton XL3? Thanks.
The Marucci Team BBCOR: MCBT Red Adult is a one-piece alloy design with a balanced swing weight and generally more preferred by a contact hitter. The Easton XL3 has an extended barrel and slight end loaded feel and therefore preferred by a power hitter.
I am 12 years old and I am a contact hitter. I need a 31 inch BBCOR bat. Should I get the 2013 Marucci Team or the 2013 Rip-It Prototype?
The Marucci Team and the RIP-IT Prototype will both use some of the highest performing alloy on the market. They will have similar weight distribution as well. Here is a link to further compare the two bats. http://www.justbats.com/compare/
I am currently swinging an easton s3, how would this bat feel in comparison and would it be an easy transition?
The Marucci Team MCBT is a one-piece balanced bat just like the Easton BB11S3 so the weight distributions will be comparable. The transition from one of these bats to the other should be an easy one.
Is this end loaded or balanced?
The Marucci Team BBCOR is a one piece allow with a balanced swing weight.
I'm an 8th grader and about 5'4" and 125 lbs. and wanting to upgrade from a 31 in. 28 oz. Easton Hammer. Would this be a good upgrade?
The Marucci Team would definitely be a great bat to upgrade to. The Team is a full alloy bat like the Hammer and you shouldn't have any problems switching to this bat!
Would it be too heavy, in your opinion, for a 13 year old who is 5'3" and 100 pounds?
Based on that height and weight, a 29" bat is recommended. Since the smallest size we currently have available is a 31" 28oz, these sizes will probably be too large for you. However, if you feel like you can swing a 31" bat, then I say go for it! It shouldn't hurt anything.
Where is it made?
Marucciâ€™s headquarters is located in Baton Rouge, LA. However, the Marucci Team model is manufactured overseas.

Do you think this bat will get banned like the CAT 5?

Marucci has since done a great job of testing their bats to make sure they are legal for play at the different levels. If the Marucci Team does lose its BBCOR certification, the NCAA and NFHS will be the governing bodies that make this ruling.

What is better, the Marucci Team or the Marucci Black?
Both, the Marucci Black and the Marucci Team are great bats. Determining which one is better is difficult and is really dependent on the type of hitter you are. If you are more of a power hitter, the Team would probably be the best option for you because it is a one-piece ally. However, if you are more of a contact hitter, then the two-piece hybrid design of the Black would probably better suit your needs.

I am a sophomore in high school who hits for power. What should I get, the Marucci Team or the Marucci Black?

How does this compare to the Marucci Black?
The Marucci Team BBCOR will be stiffer than the Marucci Black because it is a one-piece bat. Both are very high performing.
Would you recommend the Cat 5, Marucci Black, or Marucci Team based on pop? I am a power hitter.
All are great bats with very good pop. The CAT 5 and Team models are one-piece bats that often benefit power hitters. The CAT 5 was one of the highest performing BBCOR bats on the market, but it has been discontinued and we no longer have any in stock. I think the Team bat is comparable to the CAT 5, but it will be hard to match the CAT 5's performance. If you prefer a one-piece bat, go with the Team, if you have traditionally used two-piece bats with success, go with the Marucci Black.
For the money is the Marucci Team series just as good as the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo?
That depends on who you ask. The Marucci Team bats are stiff, one-piece bats. The DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece bat with more flex. Both are high performing bats, just depends on whether you prefer a two-piece or one-piece bat.
