With a larger hitting surface and increased sweet spot, Rawlings' big sticks were created for athletes who can swing a heavier barrel resulting in maximum power at the plate. Birch wood shares the favored characteristics of both maple and ash wood; making this bat choice the best of both worlds. Trust the process. Trust that the time you put in the cage, on the tee, and Hustle between the lines: it is all part of the journey to perfect the art of hitting. Like your game, we work on ours too: every log, every grain, every cut must be perfect or we don't stop working. We don't stop until we have provided you the performance you need to be your best.
