This bat is the best baseball bat for cold weather, and it’s a killer one for warmth as well! The alloy construction gives better durability against cold than a composite bat. You can find this bat in 5 lengths with a drop weight of -3.
Speaking of construction, Marucci CAT9 BBCOR Bat is thermally treated, meaning that it has better overall performance, durability, and a forgiving feel! Thanks to a multi-variable wall design, this bat also has a massive sweet spot and no dead spots. The multi-variable wall and anti-vibration knob also decrease post-impact vibrations from missed hits which is good as they tend to be more stinging in the cold.
The swing balance is balanced, although some people report a slight end-load that only increases power. You will get to hold the bat from an ergonomic handle covered with a micro-perforated soft-touch grip geared toward feel and control.
I love this bat because it has all the building blocks for great use in the chill, yet it’s so versatile that it will perform well in any other situation. I’m a fan of overall performance bats, and this is one of those with a touch of power.
