About The X12 Youth Wood Baseball Bat

Our most popular X model based off its comfort at the handle and compact barrel. The X12 experiences a lot of barrel whip through the zone and features one of the most popular handles our Pros use.

  • This youth bat's barrel diameter comes in 2.35" in order to comply with Little League and local baseball standards.
  • Maple is the most popular wood used to make bats.
  • Maple is very hard and dense wood which many say helps the ball jump off the barrel of the maple bat.

Personalize and make the bat custom. Custom wood bats feature any name engraving of your choosing as well as colors!

Rule 1.10 – Baseball

The bat must be a baseball bat which meets the USA Baseball Bat standard (USABat) as adopted by Little League. It shall be a smooth, rounded stick, and made of wood or of material and color tested and proved acceptable to the USA Baseball Bat standard (USABat).

In regard to the new USA Baseball bat standard:

Solid, one-piece wood bats that adhere to Little League’s regulations will be allowed for play with or without the USA Baseball mark (see Rule 27).

Other Details

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

Length: Any length from 30''-34.5''

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).

Blog: How to Choose the Right Sized Bat

All wood bats include a seamless Tater logo that blends right into the bat.

The decal is our final seal of approval that the bat has passed our strict quality measures.

The Tater logo is not only our signature brand, but a mark of premium high-quality craftsmanship within the game of baseball.

Get creative with a custom engraving. Put your stamp on your bat with an engraving up to 40 characters

Our engravings include the length and weight of the bat as well as the model and a unique serial number.

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.
