2019 Rawlings Quatro Pro BBCOR

If the bat can hold up it's a rock star. We find this version a bit more durable than the 2018 version which had a real propensity for home runs and breaking. The Quatro Pro for 2019 strikes a great balance between a light feel, wonderful performance and decent durability.
