Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great bat Great bat, Dicks retail markup is just too high... February 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by know how to use a wood bat this bat is awesome. if you swing at about 80-90% and square the ball up on the sweet-spot the ball just jumps. for those saying it breaks too easily. either you hit the ball off the handle, the end, or you had the Rawlings logo facing forward or back. the logo should be facing up or down at all times. hold the bat as if in mid swing just in front of the plate where you would make contact and rotate the bat in your hands until the logo is facing up or down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite bat I have used every bat from chandler to Louisville. This bat will always be my favorite January 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rawlings R243 Big Stick Pro Maple Bat This bat seems to hold up. This is the second one I have bought for my son. The first one lasted a year. He's a freshman in high school and plays on a select team also. So he hits a lot off of it. Good bat for the price. January 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Big League bat Nicely balanced. A quality bat for the price. Always nice to hear the crack of a wooden bat in the cage. January 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by this bat has good features Good solid bat, its light and can be handled very easily. November 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broke The bat broke first time it was used. Very disappointing. September 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bat Great qualities very good bat, smooth and sleek with a really nice pop, I use it over my marucci I highly recommend this bat especially for high school players ,considering the description mentioned above and the past 3 Louisville sluggers have broke in games. I used this bat previous summer ball and will use it in high school ball next . Also a pretty decent price, considering how much better it is then other brands. September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bat This bat is extremely durable and is a great bat with excellent pop September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bat Compared to the Louisville Slugger bat the Rawlings Pro Maple Bat has a slimmer handle. As soon as you pick the bat up and grab it with both hands, it just feels right. Great bat, price was a little high. Found it at Academy Sports and Outdoors for $20 cheaper and that was after Dick's $10 discount. Wish I would've looked around more before I bought, since you can't return a wood bat once you have used it. Great bat, not a great price, even when it was, "on sale". Academy Sports and Outdoors will definitely be my first stop next time. Same great products, that are cheaper when they are NOT on sale. September 16, 2014
