DeMarini Dale Brungardt Juggy DB44 Slo-Pitch Bat
Dale “Bubba” Brungardt has been named Male Slo-Pitch Athlete of the Year in the past and for good reason – he hits like a champ.

The Mizuno Crush is a 2-piece composite bat barrel and handle featuring an elastomer material that eliminates vibrations.
