Baseball Bats

Baseball Bat Advice

We offer a range of bats, both wood and aluminium / composite models to suit every need, from beginners up to the seasoned players.

Wood bats

There is nothing like the sound of the crack that fills the air when your wood bat makes contact. That sound is what ball players spend their lives training for. These days, most players prefer maple bats - but ash and birch remain pillars of the wood bat world. Each type of wooden baseball bats has a unique characteristic and it is up to hitters to decide which one suits their approach at the plate.

Why Maple? - maple provides the ultimate surface hardness and an unrivalled sound and feel

Why Ash? ash provides a unique grain structure that allows increase flexibility

Why Birch? birch provides a consistent moderate flexibility

All wood bats have a turning model within the code of the model; C271, M110 for example. These codes indicate the turning model of the bat providing the barrel size, taper length, handle thickness and knob size. Once you have got your model number this is replicated across the entire range of bats. This mainly affects the weighting of the bat, with some bats being balanced and other end loaded.

Aluminium / Composite Bats

Aluminium and Composite bats offer an alternative to wood baseball bats - meaning players can get a bat with different weighting and length to suit their game. This is particularly important to younger players.

Why Composite? Composite bats are made with a layered material that is easy to distribute in strategic positions. This means the weight of the fibres can be positioned to distribute the weight differently over the overall length of the bat. The positioning of the fibres can also help to create a larger and more forgiving sweet spot. Composite bats are more forgiving than their aluminium counterparts and reduce vibration on miss-hit balls - reducing hand sting.

Why Aluminium? Aluminium bats are made of a mixture of metals and have been used in baseball for years. They often provide a stiffer feel and are more durable than composite models

Most aluminium and composite bats carry additional certification whereby the bats are tested to a performance level. These are either BBCOR, USA Baseball or USSSA Baseball. Please check with your league to ensure you are purchasing the required bat standard.
