2023 Black Friday and Cyber Monday Baseball Bats Deals

Quick: 8 Best Deals

We think the MLB Hat shop is where it’s at this BF. Bat Deals are good, although not as good as in the past or on Bat Day, but there are some to be had. A Glove at Wilson would be a great idea too.

  1. MLB Shop is 30% off with the code BIGDEAL
  2. Evoshield protection gear up to 50% off
  3. JustBats has a great selection at good to great prices.
  4. Wilson Glove Selection is GREAT
  5. Closeout with the $50 VELO is crazy dumb.
  6. Need Practice Baseballs? Here’s the deal.
  7. Better Baseball with the -10 CF at $199.
  8. DSG has $50 off the CATX; (as do a lot of places) that’s real.

Amazon Deals

These change so quickly it’s often better to look through the baseball section of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday Amazon deals.

Also, there’s always a bat bag or two that’s as good a deal as you will see. These bags are great. It is simple but has everything you need at pretty much any level. If you want a quality bat bag on Friday, this is it.

Some favorites we’ve found are a hitting net and a tee. The brand appears to have changed, although it looks the same as last year but has a different name. It’s always a great deal and hard to pass up if needed. The same company also has a hitting tee that isn’t the best, but it’s cheap, so if you have a younger kid or want something super portable, this is a good pickup. Our favorite tees are here.

Closeout Bats

Closeoutbats has so many deals it’s almost hard to keep track of. Expect more on Cyber Monday, too. Here’s two of probably a dozen worth checking out. The VELO at $50 is just plain dumb.

DeMarini

DeMarini’s BF/CM deals are plentiful. A few bats in specific sizes caught our eye that, if that’s the bat you need, this is the time to pull the trigger. The Goods is a FANTASTIC bat that people will pay extra for come season time. These only come in a 32-inch, but if that’s the bat you are looking for, then a $250 is a great deal, and we’d be all over it.

We also like the drop 9 CF. We wouldn’t buy the wrong bat at the right price, so only dive in if a drop 9 is right for you. See our bat size chart to better understand where you should be.

Dicks Sporting Goods

We are struggling to get excited about any bat deals Dick’s Sporting Goods currently has (check for yourself). Maybe we’ll be more excited come the weekend. In any case, we did find these smooth Trout 8 Metal Cleats that, if you’re in the right size, can be as low as $25. Seems like a great pick up for some smooth looks here.

Easton

Easton direct is going hard on 2023 stuff. The Hype in BBCOR for $125 is a head shaker–it’s crazy to us that this fantastic bat that people legitimately paid $400 for just a few short weeks ago could pick it up for $125 right now. A good-shaped used version on eBay could sell for $200 but here we are, brand new, with a warranty for almost half that. Crazy times, and we love Black Friday.

Just Bats

Just Bats has a ridiculous amount of bats discounted over the last few days and we expect more as the weekend progresses. Below are a few that we found interesting, but you might do better jumping directly to their Black Friday or Cyber Monday page and just poking around yourself.

Just Ball Gloves

Just Ball Gloves (Just Bat’s sister company) always has legit deals on gloves, too. There are so many deals in their clearance section that it’s hard to put them all here, but here are two we like: Rawlings and Wilson. $180 for an HOH or A2000. But if you have a minute, it’s fun to click through, too.

Marucci

Marucci has $50 off the CAT X. That’s a legit deal, as we’ve never seen them do that before the end of the season. If you’re in the market for one, this is the time. You can see them directly on Marucci and it looks like CloseoutBats has matched that.

Rawlings

Rawlings has some gloves and bats that might work, but we found them cheaper on other sites (see JustBats and CloseoutBats). In any case, it’s always a fun site to check out the Rawlings site on BF/CM because the brand has serious appeal. Maybe there’s a hat or shirt you want?

Slugger

Sort of a weak showing from Slugger this year so far (maybe they’ll surprise us), but we only see a Select PWR in USSSA that’s worth a look or two. Otherwise, no fastpitch bats or much of anything else worth getting too jacked over.

Wilson Gloves

Probably our favorite thing to shop for on Black Friday and Cyber Monday are Wilson Gloves. They never seem to disappoint. This year, you can find a huge selection of A2000’s for under $200 (that’s a legit deal). They also have 9 different A2K’s under $260. You really can’t go wrong here (as long as you get the right size).

Axe never disappoints in pushing a pretty new and pretty good bat out the door on BF/CM. Here’s a 50% discount on the USSSA Avenge Pro, a bat we liked.

Is Black Friday a good time to buy a bat?

Sincerely, yes. But you need to make sure you buy the right kind. Newly released bats are rarely on sale. The 2023 versions will be priced as they are until at least the late spring of 2023.

But the real deals are in overstocked bats that, for whatever reason, didn’t get the play they should have for 2022. Don’t expect to see a hyped bat for a deep discount. (The Voodoo One in BBCOR, for example, will be the total price). But a bat like the 2022 Meta that is fantastic but didn’t sell very well should be a deal.

If you are happy with a bat that isn’t the most hyped and a ‘last year’ model, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are great times to buy a bat.


2022 Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

For your reference, here are the deals we found last year.

  1. MLB Hats These are a bit hit and miss, but at some point today they were up to 65% off. We’ll see what the weekend holds, but an official MLB hat at 65% off retail is rarely seen.
  2. Rawlings pushing hard on some sweet Heart of the Hide gloves. Big fans. In the low $200’s probably worth a close look if you’re in the market for a glove.
  3. Slugger’s 2022 META for $150 off directly on their site in all models is a legit deal. Cheapest we’ve seen that bat. The drop 8 for $199. Get it.
  4. Just Bats is selling the BBCOR Axe Avenge Pro for $149 in some sizes. If you’ve yet to try an Axe Handle, this is the time.
  5. DeMarini’s D-Lab Zoa (the same as the normal ZOA that’s $500) is $300. That’s a great deal.
  6. At Dicks: the CAT 9 Connect Pastime in a drop 10 for $199 is a legit deal. We’ve only seen it as low as $250
  7. Just Bats deal on the Easton Hype USSSA is legit. Lowest we’ve ever seen that bat.
  8. Easton’s deal on the Hype BBCOR is also legit.
  9. This Rawlings bat bag is as cheap as ever (and then some), and it might be the best-made bag on the market.
  10. The Rawlings Quatro Pro is not that bad of a bat. It’s good. And it’s for $189.
  11. DeMarini’s D243 Maple Wood Composite at $99? Yeesh. Great deal. And this is a great wood option for many.
  12. True Temper is dealing some gear for cheap. Bat grips for $5, batting gloves for $20, and a few bats for less than $50.
