Full Product Overview
Our Clearance Extra Bases/Gap Hitter wood bats are designed to have more of a balance between swing weight and barrel size. So even though the barrel is longer and sometimes bigger than a singles/contact hitter clearance bat, they tend to have the best weight distribution. That does come with these bats being usually a 1/2 ounce heavier than a singles/contact hitters bat. It's a great choice for hitters who are middle of the line-up guys or those who want a little more pop than a typical singles hitter bat...but without the burden of being top heavy that typically comes with a true power hitter's bat.

WHY IS THIS BAT A CLEARANCE BAT?
Clearance wood bats end up in clearance because the bat is out-of weigh or design spec, or is miss-engraved, or is the wrong color as ordered, or has some surface scuffing, a small ding or other finish issue. Rarely, it may have limited ball marks if used as a demo. Regardless of whether the baseball bat is finished or not, all clearance wood baseball bats, regardless of issue, use the same quality wood as our standard order wood baseball bats and all include a Phoenix logo. If the wood bat is not game worthy, it does not make it in to the clearance section. So, you get a solid bat at a great price.
NOTE ABOUT CLEARANCE BAT FINISHES:
Finishes will vary as we stop the process once we realize a bat will not meet specification. Sometimes this happens early in the process, before we even have had a chance to color the bat; sometimes the issue doesn't occur until the end of the process (such as an engraving error). Early rejections, that still can be a game worthy clearance bat, occur when the piece of wood we have chosen doesn't turn out in the weight we expected. We refuse to play the game we see some competitors do of painting a flawed wood bat black to hide any issues that they know will cause the bat to fail prematurely.
