NCAA decertifies a Marucci bat

Until further notice, the 33-inch Marucci 2011 Cat 5 Squared adult baseball bat has been decertified by both the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFSH). As a result, the 33-inch Marucci Cat 5 Squared is a non-compliant bat with leagues that adhere to NCAA or NFSH rules, which includes American Legion Baseball.

The elimination of this bat during competition is effective immediately as the NCAA has found, during testing, that it does not meet the BBCOR (Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution) Bat Standard.

Because the decertification only affects the 33-inch model of the Marucci Cat 5 Squared, customers can contact Marucci to return their decertified bat. For information on how to return the bat, visit  




  1. I think Commander Wong should address this accusation...that he did purposefully and knowingly cause injury to disabled veterans in siding with the administration in the matter of the co-pay increase. Also, I believe that the member, Jamesstephens, and all members should receive clarification on the matter of co-pay vs TFL, etc., and what it means to their paychecks, benefits, and expected out-of-pocket expenses. Too many of our vets are living paycheck to paycheck to not have this type of information to assist them in planning their budgets.
  2. Stephens. What did you expect from Obama? Read his books. Study his Czars. He is not your friend, unless you are one of his Party Komrades.
  3. I read on line where Commander Wong met with President Obama and discussed several topics including increases in Tricare for Retirees. Commander Wong "I hared with him that The American Legion supported the increase in TRICARE COPAY as long as they were tied into a (Cost of living adjustment) increase for retirement pay". Commander Wong just through rtirees under the bus. I along with thousands of my brothers and sister veterans are receiving TFL - that means that we are paying for Medicare and now we will be paying for TFL as well. And in some instance we still have to pay for items not covered by either Medicare or TFL. Another attack on our retirement benefits. As a retired combat veterans who is also disabled and I strongly object. I though the Legion was here to protect our benefits. After 26 years in the Legion I now am considering resigning my membership.
