With a barrel inspired by the XL5 and a unique U-Knob feature, this bat is tailored for those seeking a powerful swing, protection against common batting injuries, and an ergonomic design that supports intense practice sessions.
Designed for Enhanced Performance, Comfort, and Safety
  • U-Knob for Ultimate Protection: The Tater-U38's distinctive U-Knob is engineered to protect players from hamate bone issues, blisters, and bruises on the bottom palm area of their bottom hand.

This design is perfect for power and gap hitters looking for maximum whip and the ability to manipulate the barrel with ease.
  • Optimal Balance with Enhanced Power: The strategic design balances the bat's weight towards the barrel's end, amplifying power potential for each swing while maintaining a quick, controlled feel through the zone.

Types of Wood

Maple has been dominating the batters box for the last 20+ years. Maple is the most used wood species in the pros. It is the most dense of the three wood bats and strongest all around.

However, since maple doesn't have much give or flex - more energy is transferred upon impact at the plate.

The downside to using maple is that the "sweet spot" is smaller than other woods and it is not as forgiving as other wood species on a miss hit. Since there is little to no flex hitters who drive ball off end of the bat or hitters who don't like to crowd the plate may want to look towards Birch or Ash as a better option.

Birch is known to be the best of both worlds when compared to maple and ash. It has been becoming increasingly popular among players of all age groups.

It has similar density properties as maple yet has more flex and is more forgiving on miss hits.

This is especially a great option for new players to wood who do not want to pass up durability for performance and also suitable for players who are playing up a division or age.

Blog: Differences between Maple, Birch, and Ash Bats

Size and Drop Weight

Length: Any length from 30''-34''

Weight: Any weight from -3 to +2

Drop weight is the difference between bat length and weight. To determine a bat’s weight in ounces, take the drop weight number and subtract/add it from the bat length. For example, a -3 drop weight means that a 34" bat weighs 31 ounces (34 -3 = 31).

An integral part of the bat, a quality cup is essential. Our handcrafted cupping allows for cups of different depths, altering the weight and feel of the bat.

Our process allows the bat to be more durable and exponentially decrease the risk of chips and cracks.

Ink Dot

All of our maple and birch bats are ink dot tested to ensure the premier quality of our products.

The ink dot is proof that the piece of wood satisfies the ideal slope of the grain for MLB use; signifying that it is of the highest quality wood standard.
