I purchased this bat (19-ounce/31-inch) through another retailer a little more than two weeks ago and am in the process of returning it to DeMarini for a replacement bat. During its first in-game use I removed the bat from play because of two dents in the barrel. My son is 11 and he was facing pitching of approximately 35-50 mph. I'm estimating here based on my coaching experience and knowledge of the players he was facing. Also, the night was warm. The only other time the bat was used was during a session at the batting cages at 54 mph. There were no dents after hitting at the cages.

Once I hear back from DeMarini I will update this post.

My 8 year old son absolutely loves this bat! His distance has improved along with his hitting. Great sweet spot, well balanced and an overall a great bat and value for this price! Every player on his AA team wants to use it when batting which is a big compliment.

Good price but you are getting nothing special here. The barrel is rather standard and by that I mean that there are many other options now with a much longer barrel in the same length bat. A larger sweetspot is the biggest difference maker for youths coming up in baseball as I have noticed in coaching youth baseball. If you don't want to break the bank and can't find a great deal on a 2 piece bat, this will suffice. However, you will not see any noticeable difference in your son's hitting. Baseball Equipment, like tools, do matter with regards to how well you get the job done.

This is a great baseball bat. It has owned up to the brand name and we have been very satisfied with this bat. This is the only one our player will use now.

I would not recommend this and I should have listened to the other ratings. We had it for one month, used it only at LL practice and games and it is now unusable because of a huge dent. I have had other DeMarini products with no issues but stay away from this one.

This isn't my son's favorite bat, but it is still a great bat. He used it before he fancier, more expensive bat and did well with hitting the ball with it.
