The drop 11 Rawlings 5150 for 2021 is an entry-level bat with a good brand name, lots of durabilities, and a balanced swing. It comes in a 26 through 31 inch and uses a lighter end cap to help bring down the swing weight. We consider this an entry-level bat that will leave a lot to be desired from the elite and serious youth player. However, those looking for a decent to good entry-level rec type bat should be happy with this one.
