“DeMarini offers an exceptional warranty to secure your investment. If under warranty, our policy is to provide you with repair or one time replacement of your bat within one year from the date of purchase. The DeMarini Factory Warranty covers the following three items- there are no other warranties.
1-A severely dented bat for one year from the date of purchase.
2-The end-plug and knob may be repaired or replaced if found defective for one year from the date of purchase.
3-Cracked from normal use for one year from the date of purchase.
No warranty without receipt. Please keep your receipt. This is a manufacturers warranty. Do not return your bat to the authorized dealer. Your original dated receipt from an authorized dealer is required. Bats not purchased from an authorized dealer do not carry a warranty of any kind. PayPal, eBay or any other auction site receipts will not be considered. “
Bat Care Low Down
This bat requires special care, as it is constructed with precision-thin walls designed to enhance performance. Be aware that your bat is susceptible to damage in cold weather (under 60 degrees F), which significantly increases ball hardness.
DeMarini bats come with a numbered rotation index, rotate the bat one number after each swing, doing this will spread the hit load around the circumference of the barrel, significantly increasing the bat's lifespan.
Team usage will shorten the life of your bat.
Do not hit your bat against metal cleats.
Avoid hitting anything other than regulation game balls with your bat - this will cause damage and void your warranty.
Use only mild dish soap & water. DO NOT use solvents or ammonia based products!

BBCOR stands for Bat-Ball Coefficient of Restitution. This new bat standard replaces the previous BESR standard and is designed to achieve wood-like performance in non-wood bats. Beginning January 1, 2011 for college play and January 1, 2012 for high school play, all bats must be BBCOR certified.
A qualified BBCOR bat is a Big Barrel bat (2⅝") that is made by an approved bat licensee, has a BBCOR mark permanently attached to the bat that is recognized by NFHS or NCAA as a legal bat for NFHS or NCAA sanctioned play and has no more than a minus 3 ounces difference from the length of the bat. Minimum bat length is 29 inches.
All BBCOR bats will incorporate a logo mark, once certification approval is granted. This mark will be consistent across every approved bat design so umpires will easily identify approved bats. The logo is below:
BPF stands for Bat Performance Factor, which limits how fast a ball can come off a bat. Several major organizations have adopted the BPF standard to determine whether a bat is legal for play. These associations create their own bat safety standard to determine whether a bat is legal for use in tournament play.
Slowpitch is requiring the new BPF 1.20 stamp starting 1/1/13
Fastpitch is requiring the new BPF 1.20 stamp starting 8/1/13
Senior Youth (2 5/8 barrel) is requiring the new BPF 1.15 stamp starting 1/1/12
Youth (2 ¼ barrel) is requiring the new BPF 1.15 stamp starting 1/1/14
All DeMarini youth bats are certified by youth associations including Little League, Babe Ruth Baseball, Dixie Youth Baseball, Pony Baseball and AABC.
No. In fact, balls actually come off of singlewall bats slightly faster. The walls of a doublewall take time to flex, while a singlewall bat is tighter and more rigid, thereby popping the ball off at a slightly greater speed. All DeMarini bats meet BPF and other association standards. The outstanding results associated with DeMarini Doublewall bats are due to the bats' increased sweetspots and, of course, good batting.
No. We don't recommend using a mallet, vice, baking or beating your high-performance bat against a tree. This will void your warranty and will not increase the performance. Warranty applies when the bat is used under normal conditions for which the bat is designed, and does not apply to altered bats or damage related to accident, misuse, improper care, overuse, or negligence. If DeMarini agrees that your bat is defective it will be either repaired or replaced.
Cold weather affects the ball, not the bat. A ball's core becomes harder in cold weather, causing the ball to dent the bat. Some players think that keeping a bat warm before hitting will prevent denting, but what they actually want to do is keep the ball above 60°F. High-compression balls may also shorten the life of your bat, as well as team usage situations.
This is your Rotation Index. As you use your bat, take notice of which number is facing you when you hit. After every hit, rotate your bat to the next number. This technique evens out the load and will reduce any ''flat'' spots that may occur and will help extend the life of your bat.
No, batting cages can be especially hard on any bat. Extended periods of use with your bat are not advisable and will reduce the life of your high-performance equipment.
Yes - It's best to use soap, water and elbow grease - they won't harm the surface coating or graphics. Steel and composite barrels are coated with hybrid powder-coatings, paints, special inks and clear coatings. Do not use acetone or other heavy-duty cleaners, as they will damage the surface.

Occasionally a carrier will scan a package as delivered before it arrives at the final destination. When this happens, the package is usually delivered within the next few business days.
If you've waited a couple of days and you still don't have the package:
- See if someone else accepted delivery. Check with household members, neighbors, building managers, the mail room, front desk, and anyone else who may have accepted the delivery.
- Look around the delivery location. Carriers sometimes leave packages in a safe, hidden place like on a side porch, in/around your garage, or behind bushes.
- Look for a notice of attempted delivery. You may find an attempted delivery notice in your mailbox or on your door. Follow the instructions on that notice to request redelivery or pick up the package.
- Contact the carrier. Ask if they have additional information about the package's location. (Have your tracking or delivery confirmation number handy.) If your package was shipped via UPS, they may be able to hold the package at their local hub for you to pick up. You can call UPS and see if this is possible.
