This youth bat's barrel diameter comes in 2.25" in order to comply with Little League and local baseball standards.
The TB-271LL wood baseball bat is perhaps the most consistently popular bat in the major leagues since its introduction in the early 1970s. For over three decades, the classic flared knob and balance has been preferred by power and poke hitters alike.
The TB-271 has a faster transitional from the taper to the barrel of the bat making it feel more balanced. Hitters swinging the TB-271 will definitely be able to feel the barrel more so than hitting swinging the TB-P72. The TB-271 is used by contact hitters and power hitters alike.
Maple is the most popular wood used to make bats. Maple is very hard and dense wood which many say helps the ball jump off the barrel of the maple bat. Maple bats are hard giving little to no flex. Maple is usually preferred to advanced hitters looking to add pop and distance to their swing.
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.
