Product Description

The Youth -5 bat is designed with youth players between the ages of 12-15 who aren't ready for a -3 wood bat but still want to take their game up a notch. Coaches all over the country are preaching the benefits of incorporating a wooden bat into your training. Swinging with wood creates a more level swing path, better plate discipline, better barrel awareness, and a true understanding of bat feedback.

If you can learn to swing wood, you can swing anything - it doesn't work the other way around. And with our 6 month warranty, swinging with our wood bats will save you money versus metal and composite bats! To top things off, we use the same quality wood standards that we use for our pro bats. Most companies use their lower quality wood for youth bats - not us - we want you to have the mindset of a pro by using pro quality wood. Our Youth bats all come standard with our premium Storm finish. That means we finish the bat with 6 layers of paint and sanding to maximize the bat's density. If you're looking for the best drop 5 wooden bat in the market, this are THE bats to go with!

* Bats allowed for use in most leagues including USA Baseball, Perfect Game. Also allowed in 13-15 and 16-18 Cal Ripken & Babe Ruth divisions.

** Not allowed for use at USSSA Baseball events.

Son Prefers it to His Metal Bat
My 12 year old is loving this bat. He's driving it farther than his composite USA bat and prefers it to all of his metal bats. He has tried other wood bats, but this one is definitely different.

Frequently Asked Questions

Looking for answers? We've got them!
Why Beech?

We truly believe that European Beechwood is the best wood to make baseball bats out of. Beech has the best combination of density, dent resistance, bending strength, and stiffness of all wood species - including Maple, Birch, and Ash. In summary, it combines the density benefits of Maple with the stiffness qualities of Birch which results in a bat that can keep up with faster swing speeds and leave the bat hotter than you'll get from any other wood species. We have the option of using any wood species we like, but choose European Beechwood every time.

What Makes Your Bats Special?

1. Our bats are crafted exclusively from European Beech, which boasts the best combination of durability, energy transfer, and sweet spot among all woods, as confirmed by independent lab studies.

2. We use "Pro-Grade" billets for all bats, maintaining pro-level quality standards regardless of the bat type.

3. Our industry-leading 6-month bat break warranty boosts your confidence at the plate and ensures a replacement if needed.

4. State-of-the-art technology and robotics, including multiple 5-axis lathes, ensure precise and high-quality manufacturing.

5. We prioritize customer satisfaction, offering free shipping and returns if you're not satisfied with your bat's look or feel.

Does Beech Get Hotter With Use?

Beech, Birch, and Maple are diffuse-porous wood species (or closed grain woods). With use, their grains condense and harden, making the bat denser, harder, and less prone to breaks.

European Beech also gets hotter with use, similar to Birch. As you use the bat, you'll notice the grains/striations, which indicate grain compression.

Compressed grains result in a higher density bat, allowing the ball to travel further when hit.

Do you Offer a Bat Break Warranty?

Absolutely!

We're proud to provide an industry-leading 6-month warranty on all bat breaks.

No other company crafting single-piece wood bats offers a warranty like Mine Baseball.

If your bat breaks, email bats@minebaseball.com with:

1. Photos of the broken bat (close-up of the break and barrel from all four sides).

2. A brief description of the break's circumstances.

3. Your order number.

4. Whether you want the same bat as a replacement.

5. If the replacement bat should be shipped to the same address.

Once we receive this information, we'll promptly send you a replacement.

Our warranty covers one bat break.

Can I Customize My Bat?

Currently, we do not offer any customization to our bats apart from adding an engraving.

We maintain strict standards and criteria for crafting our bats, and altering any aspect (knob, taper, barrel, cup) would result in a different bat turn than the one we've perfected. We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing and optimizing the performance of each bat model.

Our belief is that we have created the best version of every bat model we offer, and allowing customization would reduce our control over the quality of the bat produced.

How Fast Does My Order Ship Out?

Our in-stock bats ship swiftly, aiming to be delivered within 3-5 business days!

If a bat is not in stock, you might see a "pre-order" option. When selecting this option, an estimated ship date will be provided next to the pre-order choice.

Excellent Service

My son has used these bats for around a year for his practice in the cages. He is at the cages 3 to 4 days a week and really likes how these bats feel. When we have had an issue with a bat, the customer service has been excellent .

Son Loves this Bat!

My Son loves the look and feel of the bat. No need for grip tape with the handle finish that is applied. He also loves the pop and sound!
