The 2024 Rawlings Threat -12 USA baseball bat features a one-piece fine-tuned composite design with an extended barrel that allows for lower compression, increased trampoline effect, and overall pop. The -12 length-to-weight ratio and ultra-lightweight construction are perfect for hitters looking for quicker bat speed. The large 2-5/8" barrel size provides a massive sweet spot for squaring up the ball. The lightweight endcap helps to reduce vibration, which can help to improve control and accuracy. The Threat -12 is approved for play in USA Baseball sanctioned leagues.
