YEAR IN REVIEW: The Top USA Baseball Bats Of 2021
Welcome to another installment of Baseball Express’ Year in Review, where we take a look back at some of our top selling and most popular products from 2021. Today we take a look at our top selling USA Baseball Bats of 2021, where three classic brands make up the entire list, with two names in particular separating themselves from everyone else.
One of the most highly acclaimed bats of 2019 and 2020, the ADV 360 returned in 2021 with similar fanfare.
Designed with the perfect balance of power and speed, the Easton ADV 360 -11 is the most advanced and highest performing two-piece USA bat in the game, built for the highest performing players on the field. Ultra-Lite Launch Comp™ composite barrel technology designed with the combination of hot out of the wrapper performance and a huge sweet spot. iSo 2-piece CXN™ isolates the handle from the barrel, using Nitrocell™ foam to reduce vibration, and creates a more stiff feel to transfer more energy back in to the ball at contact. Power Boost™ “Soft Knob” technology provides hitters more leverage, while reducing vibration and improving comfort for the bottom hand. DFS™ Carbon Handle Dynamic Feel System™ is a stiff composite design, to give a more solid feel at contact with zero vibration. Speed Cap™ provides a more flexible and responsive barrel. Premium grip provides the ultimate combination of cushion and tack for pure performance. It is approved for play in leagues and associations that follow the USA Baseball standard.
The Solo line of baseball bats is one of Louisville Slugger’s most popular bat lines across all certifications, so it should not come as a surprise that the 2020 Solo Speed was one of our top-selling USA bats this year.
The one-piece, superlight SL Hyper alloy construction on the 2020 Solo SPD USA Baseball bat gives hitters an ultra-balanced bat designed for one thing: bat speed through the zone. The Solo SPD, the lightest-swinging bat in the 2020 Louisville Slugger lineup, features an (SBC) Speed Ballistic Composite end cap, helping hitters get through the zone quicker than ever with improved control. A Louisville Slugger PRO Comfort Grip gives you the perfect mix of tack and cushion.
Easton breaks into this list yet again with it’s affordable and dependable one-piece 2022 Quantum Big Barrel
Easton incorporates the ALX100 Alloy material into this bat's one-piece, all-alloy design. Due to the bat having a drop 11 sizing, be sure to consider it for a beginning player. Along with the drop 11 size, this bat's weighting should allow for a very balanced-feel. Go for this bargain priced bat from Easton and I think you will be extremely satisfied with the performance that is displayed when you barrel up a baseball on its big 2 5/8" barrel diameter!
Rawlings trademark two-piece is a hit with young players year after year. Featuring an updated metallic color, the 2021 Quatro Pro also sports a re-engineered composite layering for enhanced trampoline across the length of the barrel. The 2021 model also brings back Rawlings’ F2 collar, which limits vibration for a smooth, great feeling swing at contact.
This flagship one-piece from Rawlings was so popular that it also claimed the number one spot on our list of most popular USSSA bats for the year!
If you are developing into a clean-up type of hitter you have to check out the new 2021 5150 USA bat. This bat was engineered from aerospace-grade alloy to give you the best in performance and durability. It was also crafted to give you raw power at the plate.
The longer, flat barrel and updated pOp system give you a larger sweet spot so you can hit bombs deep. As a result, you'll be able to get on base more and help your team drive home more runs too.
