Just like most people start every year resolving to be better and do better than the past year, we at Rude American USA strive to consistently improve our products and continually evolve with changing standards, regulations, and technologies. We have invested our time this past year to develop durable, powerful baseball bats and are ecstatic to pre-release them before the new year is even here! Be sure to check out our full lineup of NEW 2020 baseball bats. New year, new bat!
The New Prerelease 2020 Speed and Power Engineered MOAB USA baseball bats are made from a proprietary scandium alloy blend with a unique moderately balanced or end loaded weight distribution. It is engineered to the edge of the performance standard and provides peak performance for youth baseball hitters. USA Baseball Bats conform to the new standard set forth for youth baseball bats to have more wood-like performance. The new standard was adopted January 1st, 2018 and could affect any player not playing in a USSSA Bats league. It is best to check with league officials to determine which bat standard applies.
USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport of baseball in the U.S., in conjunction with participating national member organizations has adopted a new method for measuring bat performance in the testing of youth bats. Informed by the research of leading scientists on the USA Baseball Bat Study Committee, and supported by its National Member Organizations, – including the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Babe Ruth Baseball/Cal Ripken Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball & Dixie Boys Baseball, Little League Baseball and PONY Baseball – USA Baseball has concluded that recent advancements in science, engineering, technology, and the materials available to fabricate non-wood bats, now allow the manufacturers to construct youth bats that can perform at a wood-like level through the entire range of lengths and weights of youth bats.
The new 2020 proprietary Power and Speed Engineered designs produce a moderately end-loaded bat. This moderate adjustment is engineered for quickness through the zone, the ability to square up more often, and increased swing and ball exit speeds providing dramatic results for the hitters. In hitting, even the most minor of adjustments can create dramatic results. And remember to keep an open mind as there are just as many lead-off hitters swinging the MOAB Power bat as there are power hitters.

They are available in the following sizes: 27 inch/ 17 ounce, 28 inch/18 ounce; 29 inch/19 ounce; 30 inch/20 ounce; and 31 inch/21 ounce. The barrel on these bats is 2 and 5/8 inches.
