5 Best Players Weekend Bats - Blog-1.jpg

As a way to evoke baseball to its more youthful levels, Major League Baseball (MLB) launched their inaugural Players Weekend from August 25 - 27. The weekend games included players wearing MLB and MLBPA collaborated equipment, including batting gloves, socks, uniforms, cleats, tribute patches, and nicknames.

Of particular interest to JustBats.com were the Players Weekend baseball bats.

Through close relationships with our vendors, JustBats.com is thrilled to offer a limited supply of eleven (11) Players Weekend bats. Based on initial customer feedback, here are the five (5) best bats from Players Weekend:

2018 Players Weekend Custom Baseball Bats

Marucci Andrew McCutchen Players Weekend Maple Wood Baseball Bat (CUTCH22-MBKY)

Marucci bats are the most widely used wood bats in MLB, and Pittsburgh Pirates' All-Star Andrew McCutchen does well swinging Marucci. This bat is modeled after the one McCutchen used during Players Weekend. The black / yellow colorway is a nod to the team colors, while the Cutch22 on the bat's barrel is in reference to McCutchen's nickname and number. Other features of the CUTCH22-MBKY are:

  • Ideal for players with experience hitting wood bats.
  • Large barrel diameter and large tapered knob.
  • Balanced swing weight.

Rawlings Manny Machado Players Weekend Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MY13)

Currently, 28% of MLB players are Dominican. One of the brightest stars from the Dominican Republic is Baltimore Orioles third baseman, Manny Machado. While this Rawlings bat colorway is well done, the two call-outs to Machado's home country make the bat unique. On the barrel is the Dominican Republic's insignia, as well as 305 Born-N-Raised, in reference to Machado's DR area code. Other features of the MY13 are:
