Marucci CAT8 Baseball Bats

Cat got your tongue?

The ever-popular Marucci CAT baseball bat series is growing. That's because Marucci will release the much-anticipated Marucci CAT 8 bats. In June 2018, the vendor will officially release eleven (11) baseball bats two years after the launch of the CAT 7. JustBats.com received some exciting details about the bats, so we wanted to share.

Marucci has always done things differently in comparison to their bat industry counterparts, such as the Player Advisory Board and how they construct their metal bats. Additionally, they release their new models every two years rather than every year. Given how much players love the CAT 7 lineup, Marucci is expecting even bigger things for these new bats.

New Call-to-action

Here are details about each of the eleven new 2019 Marucci Cat 8 bats that fall into three (3) different categories -- CAT8 Connect, CAT8, and CAT Composite:
