    The DR100 wood baseball bat is the perfect transition bat for the young player moving from a youth bat to a bat with a full size barrel. Normally, at age 12-13, a hitter outgrows his/her K455, K240, or K271 wood youth bat. This is a result of physical size, league requirements and/or the speed of pitching now faced. Stick with a youth bat and the chance of breaking the bat increases greatly. Go to a high-school weight bat too soon and your young hitter starts picking up bad habits (like dropping the shoulder and dragging the bat through the strike zone). Enter the DR100 to save the day! It features a full-size barrel, of same diameter as our pro series BB71 and JK5 wood bats. This gets the hitter used to swinging a bigger barrel wood bat like they will have to swing no later than high school age. And, because it is designed specifically as a transition bat and made from the same quality wood we use for all our pro series wood bats, it comes in at only 2-3 ounces heavier than our youth bats, but still at least 2 ounces lighter than a pro series bat.

    Per Little League rule 1.10, bats for Little League (majors) and below, shall be a smooth, rounded stick and made of wood or of material tested and proved acceptable to Little League standards. It shall not be more than 33 inches in length, not be more than two and one-quarter inches in diameter, and if wood, not less than fifteen-sixteenth inches in diameter (7/8 inch for bats less than 30 inches) at its smallest part. In regard to the new USA Baseball bat standard: solid, one-piece wood bats that adhere to Little League's regulations will be allowed for play with or without the USA Baseball mark (see Rule 27). So, if you have a Phoenix wood youth bat and play in Little League, AABC, Babe Ruth / Cal Ripken, Dixie or PONY league, you are all set! All Phoenix Bats youth wood bats meet or exceed USABat and Little League standards.

    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.

     

    Swing Like A Pro.
