Our fast pitch youth softball bats come in 2 different models. Per ASA rules, all softball bats are identical from the transition through the 2 1/4" barrel. The differences are in the handle thicknesses and knob styles. The Youth Model 59 has a medium 15/16" handle with a traditional knob. The Youth Model 73 has a medium 15/16" handle that flares to a large knob for comfort, balance and a lighter swing feel.
The X Bat Girl's youth softball bat Model 59 is a long barreled bat with a long handle transitioning to a quick taper. Handle is a thin 7/8″, small knob, and the barrel is 2 1/4″. Weight range is from -7 to Even. All X Bat softball bats are made from the same hard maple that over 300 Major Leaguers say is the hardest wood bat made anywhere today.
The X Bat Girl's youth softball bat Model 73 is a long barreled bat with a long handle transitioning to a quick taper. We took the most popular handled baseball bat model and are the first to bring it to a softball bat. It has a tapered medium sized 15/16″ handle flaring to a very large knob, and the barrel is 2 1/4″. The large knob gives the bat exceptional balance and makes it feel lighter and easier to swing, especially for players accustomed to aluminum bats. All X Bat softball bats are made from the same hard maple that over 300 Major Leaguers say is the hardest wood bat made anywhere today.
