Marucci CAT9 Connect Pastime 2-5/8" BBCOR Bat -3oz (2022)
Crafted for ultimate power and end-loaded feel, the two-piece CAT9 Connect bat combines a carbon composite handle with the strengthened, thermally treated AZR alloy barrel. Marucci's one-of-a-kind Outer Locking System creates the stiffest connection available while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact for your strongest, smoothest swing yet.
Utilizing a three-stage thermal treatment process, Marucci's new AZR alloy offers a more responsive microstructure for better feel, more forgiveness, and more performance while maintaining the same strength as its predecessor
One-of-a-kind, Outer-Locking System (OLS) attaches the barrel to the handle from the outside in, creating the stiffest connection available while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact for the strongest, smoothest swing yet
Using a Longitudinal Groove System (LGS) across the thickest section of the barrel wall allows for excess weight reduction while also increasing flexibility for an increased performance zone
Multi-variable wall design creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are more forgiving after off-centered contact
Ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel flex and increases performance with no "dead" spots
Power-loaded barrel results in a higher M.O.I. and end-loaded feel for effortless power
Two-piece hybrid design combines a carbon composite handle with the AZR alloy barrel designed for power
Professionally inspired handle features a removable taper and an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort
Micro-perforated soft-touch grip with extra tack improves feel and control

Marucci CAT9 Connect Pastime 2-5/8" BBCOR Bat MCBCC9A -3oz (2022)
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.
IN STOCK. PLEASE ORDER YOURS NOW IF YOU NEED IT SOON. Supply chain issues have been affecting almost every manufacturer. We will completely sell out of many items this season.
At Closeout Bats we stock what we sell! We have a huge warehouse and are NOT drop shipping bats like many web sites. We update inventory and availability on the Web site several times a day as inventory positions change shipping hundreds and hundeds of bats. We also sell bats out of our physical store, so sometimes things sell out before we can get them off the Web site.
Limited quantities available. Prices subject to change without notice. Like we say, if it's on the site, it's in the warehouse -- just SOMETIMES it might have some other player's name on it! If you snooze, you lose, so ORDER YOURS NOW!
