Marucci 2014 Black BBCOR Baseball Bat
The Marrucci Black makes the list for the second straight year with its 2014 model. This is a rare 2 piece bat that touts handle stiffness, something that draws me to this model. Typically, a 2-piece bat is constructed for optimal swing speed. The downside is a bat that has an uneven swing weight, which could cost a hitter that has a tendency to hit the ball inside on the hands. The upside, however is unparalleled bat speed through the zone due to optimized bat construction, which could lead to enormous pop if you hit the ball right - out in front, and central on the barrel. This bat is recommended for expert hitters who are confident in their hands.
