The CAT9 is a precision balanced, one-piece alloy design with a medium M.O.I. For athletes who favor a mid-balanced metal bat, the CAT9 is the right choice. Both power-hitters and contact-hitters will enjoy the feel and performance of the CAT9.
Designed with a thermally treated AZR alloy for a more responsive and forgiving feel, the balanced one-piece CAT9 features a massive sweet spot that is ready to damage right out of the wrapper. No break-in necessary.
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
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
2nd Generation AV2 Anti-Vibration knob features an upgraded, finely tuned harmonic dampening system for better feel and less negative vibrational feedback
Ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel flex and increases performance with no "dead" spots
Precision-balanced barrel results in a lower M.O.I. and balanced feel for precision and control
One-piece alloy construction provides a clean, consistent, traditional swing
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
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.
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!
