The R-2 model is what Babe Ruth used to swing with a handle of 1-1/8″ and a medium barrel, perfect for a vintage player or weekend warrior. Composite bats are one piece wood bats with a fiber glass sleeve infused into the handle, leaving the barrel all wood for that extra pop. The fiber glass strengthens the handle an additional 20%. The R-2 is currently available in natural with clear-coat finish (not pictured). Check out our custom bats for more options!
