2024 Bat Digest Award Winners

Mar 4th 2024

Each year, Bat Digest carefully selects the "Best Baseball Bats" through rigorous testing, player reviews, and industry expertise. These awards are widely acknowledged for their esteemed reputation in our realm. Bat Digest evaluated factors such as barrel performance, bat technology, player feedback, and more to determine the top bats of 2024. Marucci's bat lines secured five awards in total including Best BBCOR Bat 2024.

As a premiere destination for baseball and fastpitch bat information, Bat Digest’s reviews are some of the most trusted in the industry.

Marucci has been a part of the Bat Digest awards since the launch of CAT6 in 2015. Bat Digest's hands-on review process provides valuable insights for companies to assess the feel of their bats in the hands of athletes. Feedback directly from athletes is invaluable in this regard.

"We’re extremely proud to once again to be included in the Bat Digest awards. It’s a testament to our team and their commitment to leading the market with the best equipment in the game. Bat Digest plays a pivotal role in the baseball community, actively involving athletes to guarantee the highest quality reviews," stated Kurt Ainsworth, Co-Founder and CEO of Marucci Sports.

The CATX features the largest generational change within the CAT line. With a new barrel profile, custom-shaped tapered handle, and new liquid-gel anti-vibration technology, the CATX line is the most balanced CAT line to date. These modifications are a testament to the awards outlined below.
