A new recessed Comp-Lite end cap lowers moment of inertia (MOI) and increases swing speed.

Rawlings offers a 1-year warranty on its aluminum bats. The guarantee covers breakage or cracking that results from normal use. Abuse, such as hitting metal cleats, rocks or anything other than a ball, can damage the bat and will void the warranty. The warranty does not cover bats that have been used in commercial batting cages.
