Looking for a wood bat that is not much more than a wood bat?

If so, then it’s likely you found your match. The Rawlings Ash Professional Ash Wood bat is a basic wood bat made to overstock in Rawling’s mill. They take their extra pieces of wood that don’t quite pass the grade as an official pro model (but still very much usable) and lathe them down into a wood bat. Throw on a Rawling’s logo, no finish, and they out the door. Cheap too.

Most think of Ash as a beginner or entry type model although there are at least a few pro guys that use ash and like it.

Expect a 33, 33.5 and 34 inch bat size. We’ve yet to see a 32-inch, but we haven’t been looking for too long. Quite possible Rawlings only makes this bat in a 33+ inch.
