Marucci POSEY28 Pro
The POSEY28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball bat is made by Marucci sports, and it is a great bat for serious players.
The bat is made out of the AZ4X alloy, which is incredibly strong but surprisingly light. The baseball bat is designed to luck like Buster Posey’s in-game bat, with maple wood grain effect to make it appear to be a traditional wooden bat – even though it’s a light, one-piece alloy bat that offers explosive power.
The extended barrel means that it has a big, responsive sweet spot. The one-piece construction ensures that the bat is smooth and has a great traditional feel, and since there’s no ring, the barrel feels even longer, and you can swing confident that even if you’re slightly off you’ll still probably hit the sweet spot. This means that you’ve got better balance and more control – you’ll be in command of the bat and ball for every swing.
The AZ4X alloy is strong but light. It’s durable, and the bat can withstand use throughout a whole season without becoming warped or dead. Like most bats, it comes with a one year warranty – but if you’re using it casually it should last much longer – and it’ll last ages if you store it properly.
At this price point, you’re going to want a great bat, and that’s exactly what this is. The alloy construction means that every single one has the same perfect balance, and there’s a satisfying sound and feel to it when it’s in use too. You’ll bat hard, long and accurately with it, and not have to worry about fatigue.
There are plenty of metal bats on the market, but the wooden effect of this one is something that sets it apart from the rest. Traditionalists will love the appearance – which looks more homely than the shiny metal of some of the more modern models, and players will appreciate the durability.
This bat is for the power hitters of the team. If you like a heavier bat to get a little more power behind the ball, then this one is for you. Anyone can be a power hitter, even I was. You have to be great at timing the ball and know your bat. With the alloy construction, this bat has a nice ping to it, and some nice pop to it.
If you’re in the market for a bat for the next season, then it’s hard to go wrong with anything made by Marucci, but the POSEY28 is definitely a sign of what the future holds. It’s a popular choice at all levels of baseball, so why not talk to your coach today and see if a teammate has one that you can try. It will be a great investment.
