Latest in technology: EASTON PROJECT 3 ALPHA BBCORStaff Pick
The Easton bats have always been known to be innovative, and Project 3 Alpha is the latest of the pack. It's incredibly well balanced and produces a smooth swing. Using ATAC alloy to construct the bat and reinforcing with Carbon-Core technology produces the thinnest walls of any bat, and pushes the limits of performance. The carbon handle provides an outstanding power-balance feel, and the custom lizard-skin bar grip gives the ultimate feel and cushion in the hands. With the added mass in the barrel, you will get more hitting power in addition to the balanced feel and smooth swing. What a combination.

Best wooden bat: Louisville Slugger 2020 MLB Prime Wood Bat Series
Pick the wood from Ash, Birch or Maple and feel the excellent balance of this Louisville Slugger MLB Prime baseball bat. A radical EXOPRO finish makes the bat shiny and twice as hard as the previous finish, and you'll enjoy that crack as the bat hits the ball for a home run. The decals on the center, end, and back blend into the bat almost as intricately as the wood grain itself, making Prime the finest in the Louisville Slugger wood baseball bats range.
Powerful strokes: Marucci MCBC7 Cat7 BBCOR Baseball Bat
The Az4x alloy construction of the Marucci MCBC7 Cat7 bat gives increased strength and a quicker response rate. The one-piece alloy feels consistent and traditional in the hands while the barrel is designed to double the sweet spot from its predecessor. A sweet swing is accompanied by the Av2 anti-vibration knob feature that radically dampens feedback of any negative vibrations. Meticulous engineering of the barrel end promotes faster swing speeds, which, added to the ridiculous bat strength, makes this a monster hitter.

The barrel design is specially designed for optimal bat control and maximum launch angle to give you outstanding power and balance.
