Bat Personalization. What is it? What can I personalize? Is my bat eligible?
On August 7, 2015, the Little League International Board of Directors formally adopted the USA Baseball's new standard for bat performance testing, but this new ruling would not be implemented til January 1, 2018.
Now that we're in the second year of USA Baseball approved baseball bats being available and a requirement for a large number of youth players, we need to break down some of the best options for 2019. It's still early in the year so keep in mind that these bats are based off the reviews we've received thus far, coaches feedback, and discussions with our customers. BONUS: below you will find a recording of Tyler's Facebook Live!
“Shop small”. Those two words are the battle cry of the little guys and girls in the business world. It is the mantra of companies that wage a daily battle to find unique ways to pit their services and products against those of the big chain and box stores.
The efforts of these smaller competitors seem to be working. As consumers, it seems more and more, we have that pang of guilt within us when we knowingly bypass the local start-up or long standing Mom n’ Pop location in favor of the large grocer or department store.
The months between fall ball and spring ball is what baseball players call "the offseason". It's a time to get better in ways you typically can't during the season. The offseason is great because you can lift weights without worrying about having a game the next day. With the right amount of discipline and proper workout plan, you can see massive gains during the months you're off.
As the calendar has flipped into 2019, it’s time to release JustBats’ 2019 7 Most Popular BBCOR Bat list. A major focus among all of the manufacturers was to perfect the end caps on each model and provide a more refined swing weight for each player. The team here at JustBats.com has received feedback directly from players and coaches to comprise the following list. Did your favorite model make it?
Keep in mind, every player has a personal preference when it comes to the bat they choose to bring up to the plate with them. These baseball bats are in no particular order and include aluminum, composite, and hybrid BBCOR bats.

Black Friday Spotlight: The JustBats Bundle Pack!
Let’s rewind to a more simple time. In the early days of baseball, there wasn’t innovation or any bat regulations. Players grabbed anything that was made of wood; wagon wheel spokes, ax handles, broomsticks, etc. Little did we know, Axe Handles would come full circle in the 2000’s. Players would reshape these pieces of wood on one end to form a better grip and the other end into a barrel. We have come A LONG way since then. Right now, we have over 450 wood bat options with a variety of over 8 different wood types.
As the popularity and advancements in metal bats continue to grow, the importance of hitting with wood bats cannot be overstated. If you have dreams of going pro one day, or simply hitting like one, then you should definitely consider having one of these best wood bats in your arsenal.
