The Velo is your top of the lineup hitter, your table setter, equipped with a ton of speed and great bat control. With a stiffer handle, and the lightest swing weight thanks to our Comp-Lite™ Endcap, this bat is a constant favorite for those looking to catch up to faster pitch speeds. Effective January 1, 2018, USA Baseball® will enforce a wood-like performance standard for all of their participating national member organizations: American Amateur Baseball Congress® (AABC), Babe Ruth Baseball® / Cal Ripken Baseball®, Dixie Youth Baseball®, Little League Baseball®, and Pony Baseball®. In addition, the use of 2 5/8" big barrel bats will be permitted at all levels. Approved bats receive a USA Baseball® stamp above the grip.
