Before Bat Digest was Bat Digest, it used to be called JustBatReviews. Although uncommon, we sometimes get emails about bats people think they purchased on our site. Roughly once a quarter, we get an email or Facebook message thanking us for the bat they bought—an honest and understandable mistake on their part. We usually laugh it off with a quick response explaining we aren’t JustBats.com.
Once, we even received a warranty request for a broken bat. The buyer asked to be compensated for the lost time their 11-year-old experienced without the bat. Seriously? As if there was some express indemnity clause in little league bat purchases. Can you imagine dealing with people like this all day? Hence, we are not, and never will be, in retail.
JustBats makes that a breeze too. They cover all shipping costs to return any defective bat to the manufacturer. While the process must still go through the likes of Easton, Marucci, DeMarini, etc., JustBats ensures that you are taken care of along the way.
Let the official record state that despite our previously similar names, JustBats.com is not affiliated with our site. We have, however, spent several hours perusing bat details and model numbers on their site. We often link to their places in our reviews as the information on their product pages is accurate and informative. We have exchanged emails with their customer service and marketing teams. But, again, we are not them, and they are not us.
In a world centered around consumers and availability, there isn’t a better online shopping experience than the one you’ll receive at JustBats. Whether you are shopping for a brand-new baseball bat for your kid or a softball bat for your slowpitch league, JustBats has the largest selection of bats available on the market. Big brands like Easton, DeMarini, Louisville Slugger, and more are all available at JustBats. Beyond the availability of the game’s top bats, JustBats takes the entire experience a step further. In my eyes, three things separate them from the pack:
Not only can you order your next bat with Lizard Skins pre-applied, but JustBats offers an option to add a custom knob sticker to any bat, or you can even engrave the barrel on most wood bats. You would think this might delay the order, but it doesn’t. Whether you add personalization to your bat or not, all orders placed on JustBats will ship the same business day as long as it was placed before 8 pm CST.
Led by the moniker Buy. Try. Apply. Bat Assurance allows parents and players to shop for the perfect bat comfortably. Here’s how it works:
Buy: Choose your favorite bat(s) and put them into your shopping cart. Then at checkout, you can select to add Bat Assurance to any/all of your bats.
Try: You will have 30 days (from the day your bat arrives) to swing, hit, and even use it in a game to determine if it is the right bat for you. If not, send it back to JustBats and receive a FULL REFUND for the bat’s price.
Apply: If your bat is exactly what you’re looking for, JustBats will provide you with a credit equal to what you paid for Bat Assurance. You can use this credit any way you want over the next year.
Think about your everyday experience when shopping online. You’re drawn in by a low price offer, only to get to the checkout and see additional fees and a shipping estimation of 5-10 days. Sometimes you’re even required to pay an additional charge for the standard shipping option. It’s not the most welcoming experience. Shopping at JustBats is entirely different and a refreshing experience. Every order placed through JustBats (and JustGloves) comes standard with free, fast shipping. And while you can pay to expedite the shipping process, we recommend you take advantage of the free shipping. This is two-fold. First, if you are paying for a new baseball bat, you’re likely already spending a couple of hundred dollars. Second, and most importantly, JustBats delivers via UPS within three (!) days to most locations in the United States.

f you’re interested, I had him on the podcast a while back, where we talked about everything from bats during a pandemic to why you can only find brands like COMBAT and Brett Bros on their website.
Yes. Just Bats does Gloves too at JustBallGloves.com. These two companies are under the umbrella of a company named Pro Athlete which actually dabbles in a lot of sporting goods.
