Our Summary Of The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat:

Known for perennially developing baseball bats that produce high volumes of outstanding performance, Marucci has delivered the most outstanding CAT model since the BBCOR adoption. The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect features all the essential innovations required to optimize pop and power for the older levels of baseball. Coming as a two-piece construction, this BBCOR bat houses Marucci’s AZ105 alloy material within a 2 5/8 end loaded barrel that encompasses a ring-free multi- variable wall architecture. This tandem combination gives a batter Marucci’s most reinforced aluminum ever and increased barrel flex that inversely decreases dead spots along the barrel allowing the ball to sail further after contact. As a hitter sees more power in his swing, the lower half of the baseball bat will provide superior comfort and control. Locking the carbon composite handle with the durable alloy barrel is Marucci’s SDX EXT connection technology. This addition will reduce shock vibration, elevate energy transfer, and increase overall stiffness.  The handle features a slight taper with a super soft grip and a newly formed ergonomic anti-vibration knob. These elements allow will give hitters more confidence by offering more hand control and maximizing a lighter feel despite the end loaded top. The 2019 Marucci CAT Connect 8 BBCOR baseball bat is a solid and very reliable option for those players looking to hit dingers.
