We find the best bats under $100 here.
If you are looking for a non-wood bat, then the best place to buy the best bat under $100 is on eBay. We know that might sound frustrating, but the truth is that most performance bats under $100 aren’t very attractive, and most, if not every single one, are made in the same factory overseas, sold in bulk to manufacturers here who put their own sticker. If you want a new bat under $100 then the truth is you are going to get what you get.
All that said, we do have some recommendations under $100 (or really close to it) in our list below. At the time of this writing, you can get a steal of the 2021 Rawlings VELO for under $100 at Closeoutbats Amazon link. You have to follow that link for the promo code to work. Other than that, we think the Marucci F5, as a shining example, is a great bat that you can often find for less than $100 in all types of leagues as you’ll see below. We are also fans of the Brett Bros Maple in the composite wood world and the Slugger Quest if you want a brand new fastpitch bat for under $100.
This article was updated with a new wood and BBCOR selection in July of 2022.
