What a year it’s been in the bat world.

We’ve seen new bats come in, and we’ve seen old bats say goodbye. Bats have been banned, unbanned, approved for new certifications, created with new technologies, barrel sizes, materials, and everything in between.

It’s been such a great year that we decided to recap 2018 with an employee pick-em! This time, bats won’t be judged off of customer popularity, reviews, or performance. Instead, we will have JustBats employees from each department select their favorite bat and why they made their selection.

Bats released from 1/1/2018 to 12/31/2018 are applicable.
