Lifetime .311 hitter Jose Altuve swung the Tucci JA27 33 inch, 31 ounce Maple bat earlier in his career, and he’s back with it in 2021 with slight modifications. Altuve, back before he was a household name, swung a 238 from Tucci. Altuve fused it with a 271 handle, which is what the JA27, Altuve’s namesake model, is based off today.
Tucci’s website now offers the JA27 at their highest wood quality tier, a Pro Select Limited custom or stock bat. Customs are $170 and stock bats are $150. Academy Sports also has a few options. Altuve uses a smaller barrel to allow for denser wood than the stock model, but his dimensions are the same: 33 inches in length, 31 ounces in weight.
IMPORTANT NOTE: ASK FOR THE “TL” LOGO IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE “TUCCI” WORD LOGO. ALTUVE’S GOT THE “TL.”
