NOW AVAILABLE – Come and swing the new 2013 CF5, Voodoo, Vendetta, M2M, Vexxum, or Pro-Maple wood bats at North AL’s "ONLY" DeMarini Demo House.

The demo time in the cage is free and the bats are waiting. Just stop by and start hitting.

You can swing the latest in the DeMarini arsenal – including our newest 2013 BBCOR models.  See how they feel in your hands, pounding a real baseball.  Find the one that’s perfect for your size and hitting style.  Your time in the cage is on us.

If you are playing College/High School/Middle School sanctioned ball in 2013, you will have to have a BBCOR certified bat.  We have a good selection of "drop 3's" on the demo rack for you to try out.

So, come by and check out all the new 2013 DeMarini basts and take a few swings with them before you buy one.
