The Big Stick Composite Pro Wood baseball bat features the popular 243 pro shape. This bat also has a pro cupped end for a great balance and a 15/16" handle for comfort and control. With a larger hitting surface and increased sweetspot, Rawlings' Big Sticks were created for athletes who can swing with a heavier barrel resulting in maximum power at the plate. Rawlings' Composite Wood bats are constructed from eco-friendly bamboo and the strongest maple wood available, and feature a balanced weight distribution for a improved swing speed. Designed to last, these new bats are 2X more durable than previous models! Rawlings utilizes the most durable portion of the bamboo located at the base of the plant to construct the bat's handle and middle taper area.
