2021 Rawlings 5150 USA Drop 5

The 5150 in a drop 5 for 2021 has a decent sized barrel and a good balance for the drop 5 class. We like this USA version of the bat better than any other. Kids who can get a drop 5 around and like the stiff feel of a single piece aluminum bat will do really well. As well, at under $100, we think the drop 5 5150 for 2021 is a great practice and cold-weather bat. It can also serve as an ultra-durable cage work bat that will last a life time and give good strength training opportunities for younger hitters.
