Marucci Sports has grown from a small-time garage-based operation to the number one baseball bat manufacturer in the Big Leagues, but their attention to detail and strict quality standards have been a fixed aspect of their work since Day 1. Because of their meticulous production and quality assurance process, some bats don't make the cut due to various blemishes and won't be lucky enough to call the dugouts of professional stadiums all around the country their home. These blemishes can range from Tiger Striping in the wood, uneven grain, light/heavy billets, and many other minor cosmetic flaws. Because Marucci wood is sourced from only the highest quality Pennsylvania maple timber, you're still left with a durable bat that offers reliable and consistent performance from the first swing. Like the very same models Marucci crafts for the best players in the game, these bats have been Bone-Rubbed for an extremely hard finish. This age-old technique, which dates back to the days of legends Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, consists of applying pressure to the barrel of the bat with a simple cow bone. By pressing and sliding the bone across the full length of the barrel and around its circumference, the wood grains are sealed and compressed; creating a harder hitting surface for optimum durability and amplified performance.

add_circle_outlinePros: This bat used to be the MCMBBCULL before that bat changed its look. I am assuming that these are just the leftovers and they changed the model number. Great, great bats and such a good value for a quality Marucci wood bat.
remove_circle_outlineCons: I've had many of these and haven't been able to identify the "blem" in most of them. The latest one was just a small nick in the end of the barrel. Doesn't bother me!
add_circle_outlinePros: Love the durability of these especially for blems.
I run an adult baseball team and use this as my bat/the team bat. Always have at least one leftover at the end of the season and there will be five or more players using them.
Ball jumps off the bats
remove_circle_outlineCons: Ordered blems 5 times now. Got a model I liked everytime but once. The risk of getting a model I dont like is worth the reward.
If you care about the look black isnt the most exciting thing in the world
add_circle_outlinePros: With a 13 y.o. who loves to swing wood in the cage and at practice, these bats are a great deal. As far as blemishes go, I can't find any. Bats are well balanced and high quality. Can't go wrong at this price point.
remove_circle_outlineCons: The "Blem" decal is kind of tacky, but you're paying for a bat not eye candy. Just hit it.
add_circle_outlinePros: I really love the feel of the bat, I wish every bat I have held felt like this.
remove_circle_outlineCons: NO POP. by the price you can tell that these two bats aren't really top notch, but i prefer getting a pro model like the AP5 or big papi. Own both right now and they are phenomenal.
If you like gambling, this might be for you.
add_circle_outlinePros: Shipping to me in Japan was as quick as can be expected and the box that the bats arrived in was in great condition condition. After unboxing the bats I have to say that I was very impressed, aside from the lame and cheesy "BLEM" that covers the Marucci "M". The finish was top-notch and looked beautiful. I could not see any visual defects with the bats (I got the "bat pack" ). So I was thinking, "great! I basically just got 2 Marucci bats for the price of 1!" Well, thats where the excitement stops for me...
remove_circle_outlineCons: As you cannot select the style of turn when you buy blemished bats, I was slightly disappointed when both of mine turned out what seemed to be a 110 style bat. But having only swung mostly 271 style bats I figured "eh, I'll make these work for me." First BP session: Swung the bat a good 50 or so times and while the feel of the bat was great, I feel like the distance I got off of it was worse than my 17 year old ash bat. I thought maybe I was doing something wrong and just decided to stick with it. A few more BP sessions later and I still feel like it just doesn't have the pop that it should. Well, in it's 2nd game of use I hit a ball square on the barrel. The bat absolutely exploded in my hands. It split into 3 big pieces and the biggest piece, the barrel, had several more cracks running the length of it. This was all on 1 of the 2 bats I received. The 2nd bat feels similar in pop so I'm sure its a matter of time before that one explodes as well.
add_circle_outlinePros: flawless for a maple bat, impeccable finish. I picked this up for a my kid when he was 13.. year and a half later this bat has been used and abused. Did a hitting session yesterday and he hit 3 out with the Maruch, and only 1 with his 917 Prime. Ordering another in a bigger size. The bone rub makes this bat very hard, and the finish is like a piano.
remove_circle_outlineCons: None so far, its a steel for MLB quality maple. Hope the second is as good as the first.
add_circle_outlinePros: The pop on this bat is very good and the durability is great. Of course with any wooden bat it only takes one pitch hit in the wrong place and that will break the bat. I have had one for 2+ years and it is still going strong. I have 3 of them with 2 different sizes.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Just remember you can swing any bat one time and if hit in the wrong place it will break. It is wood so you have to expect that to happen.
Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat: MCMBLEM Black Adu
add_circle_outlinePros: This bat was purchased as a gift for my grandson and therefore I have no opinion on it as his birthday is next week and that's when he'll get it. That being said, I did inspect this "BLEM" and found nothing wrong with it except a very small scratch in the paint. excellent deal!

PR All Stars

How is this Marucci blem different than the "pro cuts" that cost $40 more? Aren't they all blems?
During Marucci's strict Quality Control process, they separate the bats that do not meet their high standards (Culls/Blems) into different grades. Those specific grades are not shared with us, but they are based on factors such as weight of the wood billet, straightness of the grain, and cosmetic blemishes such as Tiger Striping. The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM) Black Adult bats do receive a slightly lower grade than the (MCMBBCULL) models. Because of that, the price is lower; but their integrity is not compromised.
What is the barrel size on this bat?
Because the turn model can vary, the barrel diameter of the Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM) Black Adult bat that you receive can range between 2 1/2" to 2 5/8". When these bats are finished, their intended turn model is not engraved or printed on the bat. Because of that, we are unfortunately unable to guarantee specs such as barrel diameter or handle thickness.
What is the weight drop on this bat? -2 or -3?
The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM) will be an approximate -2 to -3 length to weight ratio.
