When it comes to baseball, we think of bat and ball.
I regularly watch baseball matches and also learn about it.
I think I am knowledgeable about the sport but it is hard for me to choose a baseball bat for my son.
I have done quite a bit of research on the professional baseball sites and lists of the best youth baseball bats. I have a few to share with everyone when choosing a bat:
1. The first, type of baseball bat: wood, Composite or Alloy. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Wood Bats: This is the oldest bat, it tends to be heavier and less durable than other materials. Wood Bats are suitable for slow and safe matches.
Composite Bats: Has the best durability of all types, composite Bats is light and good power, but the price is the most expensive in the market.
Aluminum Bats: with light advantages, good durability and reasonable price, this is a very suitable choice for ordinary players.
To learn more, you can refer to the article: how to choose baseball bats with Composite or Alloy.
2. Next, the feeling of using, weight, and length appropriate:
Feeling of using: this to me is the most important. You will be more interested in practicing and playing better when you hold the baseball bat comfortably.
Weight: depending on the condition you choose the baseball bat that suits you. If you choose a baseball bat that is too heavy, you will feel tired after a few strokes. The stronger players often choose baseball bats with a greater weight to increase strength. Smaller players usually choose lighter bats to speed up.
Size and length: you can refer to the size chart on the baseball pages. But I recommend you take the bat and try it out by:
When you upright, the knop of the bat should reach the center of your palm.
3. Requirements of the tournament (if you participate):
Each tournament will have its own rules, usually, bat standards will set according to the age of the participants
4. Of course, the price of the bat is mentioned.
It is great to choose a bat that meets all your requirements at an affordable price. However, sometimes you have to ignore brands and some new technologies for better prices.
The choice is yours,
I am really happy to choose a suitable baseball bat for my son and have a lot of knowledge to share with everyone.
