CAT8 -8

The CAT8 -8 is a USSSA certified, one-piece alloy bat built with AZ105 super strength aluminum alloy meaning thinner walls, higher response rate, and better durability. The precision-balanced barrel features a ring-free multi-variable wall design that creates an expanded sweet spot, while the patented AV2 Anti-Vibration knob produces a better feel and less negative feedback.

  • AZ105 alloy, the strongest aluminum on the Marucci bat line, allows for thinner barrel walls, a higher response rate and better durability
  • Multi-variable wall design creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are more forgiving after off-centered contact
  • 2nd Generation AV2 Anti-Vibration knob features an upgraded, finely tuned harmonic dampening system for better feel and less negative vibrational feedback
  • Ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel flex and increases performance with no "dead" spots
  • Precision-balanced barrel results in a lower M.O.I. and balanced feel for precision and control
  • One-piece alloy construction provides a clean, consistent, traditional swing
  • Professionally inspired handle features an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort
  • Micro-perforated soft-touch grip with extra tack improves feel and control
  • 2 3/4" barrel
  • USSSA 1.15 BPF certified
  • One-year warranty included

    Amazing Bat

    Posted by Bryce on Sep 15th 2019

    I was debating on getting a 2 piece composite or this bat and I sure made the right choice! Amazing pop right out the package. Grips feel great and very good looking bat.

    Cat 8

    Posted by Deidre Roberts on Jun 20th 2019

    We purchased the Cat 8 for my son. He loves everything about it, from the grip all the way to the sound it makes when the ball is coming off of the bat. I was a little nervous about going from a -10 to an -8 and how it might effect his batting stats in a negative way since we waited until the end of regular season and he was only going to be able to use it and get the feel of it once before using it in a game situation. Much to my surprise he picked it up used and it first try hit triple. We will only be purchasing Marucci bats in the future.

    Bought Cat 8 after using Cat 7 previously. Great balance and feel. Marucci got it right.

    Best on the market

    Posted by Joe on Dec 1st 2018

    Purchased new Cat8 -8 (31/23) for my 11 year old. Great sound / great pop. He had same size/weight in Cat7. Was hesitant to pick up new bat thinking just new paint job, however, the performance of this bat is unbelievably better. Bigger sweet spot, bigger barrel, and the ball flys off the bat much quicker and farther. I definitely recommend this bat as your kid moves up from the -10.

    Son plays 12U travel. Eight kids have the Cat8 and they all hit very well. Worth every penny.

    Great Bat

    Posted by David on Jul 28th 2018

    I got this bat for my 11U son to use in Tournament play. He's only used it in a cage so far but loves the feel and picked up 3-7MPH exit velo with it. He also LOVES the sound it makes!

    Cat 8 30" -8

    Posted by Ralph on Jul 28th 2018

    Early birthday present for my son's 12th birthday. Had his name and number engraved on it and he really liked that. Ball sounds awesome coming off the bat. I was a little disappointed when I seen the "Made in China", was under the impression it was manufactured in the USA.
