Flared Knob | Medium Handle | Quick Transition | Big Barrel
33"(-2) - End Loaded
With the AP5 being one of the most demanded and hottest bats in baseball, Chandler has replicated its design into the AP5A model. This wood baseball bat is known for being a bigger barrel model, its pinched transition increases whip through the zone. This model was designed for combination of balance and barrel incorporating a flare with a smooth transition into the knob.
Chandler Bats was founded in 2009 in East Norriton, Pennsylvania as a response to the need to improve safety in the game of baseball. In 2008, the rate of broken bats in Major League Baseball was at an all-time high. With a passion to improve safety as well as quality, Chandler Bats sought to provide a revolutionary wood product for big league players. We've also made it our mission to offer the same high-end product to players at any level of the game.
Chandler Bats’ commitment to accuracy and quality can be seen in the detail on every bat.
Chandler Bats is committed to constructing the most finely engineered baseball bat in the world. In an industry that is over a century and a half old, Chandler Bats is a leading innovator.
In 2019 Chandler Bats was acquired by YC52, LLC and relocated to Port St. Lucie, Florida in 2021 with the goal of helping Chandler Bats expand past Major League Baseball to college play and beyond. New ownership's knowledge and passion for baseball will help Chandler Bats produce products unlike anything else on the market. This acquisition landed Yoenis Céspedes on an elite list of professional athlete entrepreneurs.
With Céspedes spearheading this growth and change in leadership, Chandler Bats has been actively recruiting players who value and want to play with the best, and want to propel the brand to the next level. Our focus and mission remains clear providing the undisputed best product in baseball!
The 22k Real Gold Chandler logo is not only our signature brand, but a mark of premium high-quality craftsmanship within the game of baseball. The Chandler 22k Real Gold logo contains real 22k gold flakes. Just like the players whose bats sport our gold, it represents innate desire to separate from the competition. For us, it symbolizes the determination each player holds toward his or her own success – and ours.
Whether it's BBCOR, USA Baseball, or USSSA Certification - all one-piece wood bats (except bamboo) are allowed for use - with or without the certification markings. This means every bat in our lineup is considered certified, or rather certification not required. Because every one of the above mentioned standards are designed to make a metal bat respond more like a wood bat.
If the standard is make metal bats respond like wood bats - meaning they take away all the benefits of metal bats(ie: exit velocity), but don't give you back any of the benefits of wood (immediate feedback)... Then why would any serious player use anything but wood? Nothing can provide you the immediate feedback that a wood bat gives, both in terms of sound and feel. Miss the sweet spot? Those stinging hands will tell you so! Plus wood bats don't have a trampolining effect, because they aren't hollow. Wood is the only option for players who want to be their best. No matter who your favorite pro player is, there's one thing that's for sure - he swings a wood bat. You should too.
The Chandler bat arrived quickly and exactly as described, waiting for feedback from my son once he starts playing in his summer collegiate league!
