Easton B5 Pro Big Barrel 2-5/8" BBCOR Bat -3oz (2021)
The Green Easton is back! First introduced in 1978, the original B5 Pro Big Barrel bat boasted the largest barrel aluminum bat ever made to that point in time for a larger sweet spot. And after 40 years in the making, all of Eastonís innovations have produced a new breakthrough worthy of the B5 Pro Big Barrel name.
The new B5 Pro features a ringless barrel with varying wall thicknesses. This premium Advanced Thermal Alloy Construction (ATAC) produces a bigger sweet spot and smoother feel for B5 Pro than any other bat of its kind. And, combining its construction with Eastonís Speed Cap, the B5 Pro also provides a more flexible and responsive barrel. Additionally, the batís Natural Pro Balance Swing Weight results in a balanced feel for both speed and power. Its Extra-Stiff ATAC Alloy Handle transfers maximum energy into the ball for a more professional feel and performance, while its VRS Handle Insert reinforces the handle to reduce vibration and create an even more solid feel.
The B5 Pro also has a premium grip, which provides the ultimate combination of cushion and tack. Not only is the 2021 B5 Pro the best performance, feel, and sound that Easton has ever engineered in a 1-piece aluminum BBCOR bat, the batís design is a modern remix of The Green Eastonís classic look.

BBCOR Certified Baseball Bat
The BBCOR formula provides a better measure of the bat's performance and therefore allows the rules committee and bat testing laboratories to better predict field performance based on lab tests. The goal is that non-wood bats that meet this new standard will perform similarly to wood bats. All BBCOR bats will incorporate a logo mark once certification approval is granted. This mark will be consistent across every approved bat design so umpires will easily identify approved bats.
