Marucci takes pride in turning top quality wooden baseball bats in the same tradition and precise technique of the earliest bat companies. Every Marucci bat is cut, calibrated, balanced, buffed and lacquered by hand. Marucci uses top grade Maple billets cut from selected, naturally grown trees in Pennsylvania forests. This selection process insures the highest possible grade of wood for each bat. Marucci bats are 100 percent handmade or turned in small batches from an original design, then finished and detailed by hand. Each model is made to exacting specifications maximizing balance and ease of handling. Marucci uses an Ultra Penetrating Stain that provides the best possible finish for your next Marucci Bat. Most impressive is the Bone Rubbing technique that they use. "Boning" bats began in the earliest days of baseball with players like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. These Hall-of-Famers would spend hours in their dugouts rubbing their bats with old cow femur bones. Bone Rubbing closes the wood`s pores, compressing it and making it harder. Marucci uses the same technique on their bats, rubbing before the finish is applied to seal and harden the wood. Just another example of how Marucci takes the same pride in their bats as our baseball heroes once did. Experience the excellence of a Marucci Bat and try their newest custom wood bat designed for Anthony Rizzo. The RIZZ44 Pro Model is ideal for players who have experience hitting with wood bats. The medium-tapered handle distributes the weight of the powerful barrel evenly throughout the bat so hitters have complete control of their swing from the load all the way through the zone.

add_circle_outlinePros: I wanted to try a new model that was similar to my CU26, so I gave this one a try. The balance is excellent...lots of control. I like the unique knob that sit perfectly between my ring finger and pinky which I wrap around the bottom. Finish is solid and I like the metallic gold sticker and engraving color.
Is this bat end loaded or balanced? Does it have a thick or thin handle?

Why do Marucci Bats not have a ink dot?
That is a very good question. We would recommend reaching out to Marucci with regards to this. Their number is 225-291-2552.
Is this bat a -3 or -5 because I got it and it is very light to swing and has kind of a small barrel.
The 2016 Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat: RIZZ44 features an approximate -3 length to weight ratio.
I have this bat and love the way it feels when I swing. What BBCOR bat would have the most similar balance/swing weight to this bat (regardless of brand)?
This 2016 Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RIZZ44) comes with a decent barrel length, but still manages to feature a pretty balanced swing weight as well. Although it is hard to really compare wood bats to metal bats, I would have to compare this bat most closely to a bat like the Marucci ONE BBCOR Bat (MCB1 Black) which is modeled specifically after Marucci wood bat designs.
How much does the 31" model weigh?
Since the density of the wood can vary wood bats like the 2016 Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RIZZ44) will not have their weights listed. It will be approximately a drop of -3.
Could you explain the differences between the Marucci RIZZ44 and the Marucci JB19?
This 2016 Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RIZZ44) will feature a decently long barrel length on the bat, but it will still display a decently balanced swing weight. The JB19 will differ as the taper from the barrel to the handle will be very gradual and will result in a smaller barrel length, but that design will also lead to a more balanced swing weight when compared to this RIZZ44.
Will this handle compare to the JB19 handle?
The 2016 Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat: RIZZ44 has a Medium-Tapered Handle and the JB19 will feature a Long-Tapered Handle. So they will be a little bit different. The JB19 will be a little bit more balanced of a bat than the RIZZ44.

Does the Anthony Rizzo model have a barrel diameter that is smaller than 2 1/2"? If not, what wood bat does?

Do you guys offer this bat in a youth model and, if so, is it offered in different makes of wood? I have been looking at the Andrew McCutchen youth bat and was wondering what the difference is between both besides just the wood. I am buying this for my 10 year old son.

The Rizzo model has a Medium-Tapered Handle while the AP5 is going to have a little bit more taper in the handle and a little bit longer of a barrel.
I didn't see the mark in the picture, but it's recommended on several other sites as a certified BBCOR bat. Is this bat BBCOR certified?
This Marucci Anthony Rizzo Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat (RIZZ44) is built of a one-piece, all-maple design. Typically, if a high school player is playing in a game that allows players to use wood bats, then any adult wood bat comprised of one wood type (maple, ash, hickory, birch, etc.) would be allowed for play (regardless of bearing the BBCOR certification mark).
