The CAT8 BBCOR is a 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 a removable taper and an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort
  • Micro-perforated soft-touch grip with extra tack improves feel and control
  • 2 5/8" barrel diameter
  • BBCOR certified
  • One-year warranty included

    This bat is super hot. Lots of pop right out of the wrapper. This one does not disappoint.

    Excellent bat, my 14 year old son loves it. Strongly recommend the lizard skin grip as well.

    Marucci Cat8

    Posted by Ryan Jaros on Jun 16th 2018

    This is my sons third Marucci bat and by far his favorite. He previously used a -5 Cat7 and BBCOR Special Edition Cat7. The jump the ball gets off this bat is tremendous and quality and craftsmanship are one of a kind. There are more expensive bars out there, but dollar for dollar this is the best bat money can buy. I’ve asked him if he wants to try a differnt bat on occasion and the answer is always the same, a resounding “No”.

    I can't say enough about the bat and more importantly about the service. The bat is fantastic; my son loves the swing feel, the loud ping, and the handle (went with the 1.75mm grip). More to the point, we ordered the bat and Marucci went above and beyond to ensure that the bat would get to us for our tournament this weekend. Great company, great product.
