The DR100 wood baseball bat is the perfect transition bat for the young player moving from a youth bat to a bat with a full size barrel.
Normally, at age 12-13, a hitter outgrows his/her K455, K240, or K271 wood youth bat. This is a result of physical size, league requirements and/or the speed of pitching now faced. Stick with a youth bat and the chance of breaking the bat increases greatly. Go to a full-size barrel too soon and your young hitter starts picking up bad habits (like dropping the shoulder and dragging the bat through the strike zone).
Enter the DR100 to save the day! It features a full-size barrel, of same diameter as our pro series BB71 and JK5 wood bats. This gets the hitter used to swinging a bigger barrel wood bat like they will have to swing no later than high school age. And, because it is designed specifically as a transition bat and made from the same quality wood we use for all our pro series wood bats, it comes in at only 2-3 ounces heavier than our youth bats, but still at least 2 ounces lighter than a pro series bat.
