"This is the first time that I have purchased any goods from Marucci on-line. We live in Australia and have not been able to get to the USA due to COVID-19. This bat was no longer available in Australia. I bought it from the factory and every step of the process was amazing. I felt like I was part of the journey in its production. It arrived on time and the first 5 people to use it all got hits. Obviously we all love it now. However, of my 40+ bats that I have owned, this is my favourite of all time - and I am nearly 60.
