Since 2004, the team at B45 has understood the awesome characteristics that a bat made from Yellow Birch wood can offer a hitter. With Maple-like harness combined with Ash-like flexibility and forgiveness, B45s Yellow Birch wood bats are finding their way into the hands of some of the game's best players including All Star Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. After adopting B45 Yellow Birch wood bats during the '15 season, CarGo went on to crush 30 homeruns while seeing his bat breakage rate plummet over 80%. Now you can take the same Pro Select Yellow Birch wood to the plate with the CarGo5 modeled after his game spec bats. This CarGo5 features a long barrel design with a 2 1/2 inch diameter that gradually tapers into a thicker 0.94 inch handle. Overall, this bat has a top heavy feel which leads to increased power potential, but the large tapered knob also allows hitters to better control this bat through every inch of the hitting zone.
