Bat Conditions

At pre-owned bats we inspect and grade every bat. Below are some examples of how they are graded. 

Like New

A new, unused bat with absolutely no signs of wear. The bat may be missing the original packaging, or in the original packaging but not sealed. The item may be a factory second or a new, unused item with defects. See the seller's listing for full details and description of any imperfections.

Very Good

An item that has been used previously.  A well-cared-for bat that has seen limited use with minor blemishes, ball marks or paint chipping.


Item shows wear from consistent use, but it remains in good condition. The item may be marked, identified, or show other signs of use. The item works perfectly and has no cracks, rattles or major denting.


A product with extensive external signs of wear, but is in solid working condition. The bat has no cracks or rattle. Alloy bats may have some denting.

Cage Bat

A bat that has signs of extended use with multiple cosmetic blemishes. These bats are functional for game use but are better suited to be used mainly in practice/batting cage.
