The Rawlings VELO is one of the longest-running bat lines in the baseball space. Its origins are pre-BBCOR days, and it’s never really left its roots as a single piece of aluminum with a light swing.
They’ve added technology to extend a composite end cap into the barrel, and, occasionally, some refer to more recent versions of the Velo as a hybrid. Traditionally speaking, though, the bat is a single-piece aluminum. We’ve hit this bat since its BBCOR inception and have our reviews below.
Although the bat hasn’t changed much over the years, its demand has. It has gone in and out of favor for any number of factors. Since demand is a small portion of our grading system, you’ll see some variations in the ratings below.
