2015 Marucci CAT 5^2 BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

The 33 and 34-inch versions of this bat were made illegal the year they came out. It is, in some measure, what put Marucci on the map. Those bats were crazy hot and over the limit. We've tested the 32-inch enough to know that it competes and even beats most of the new bats in the 2020's on exit speeds. It doesn't feel great and doesn't have the biggest barrel, for sure. But if the 32-inch world is where you want to be then we can't think of a better place to be than the CAT 5-squared.
