Choosing the Right Wood Bat Model

Choosing the Right Wood Bat Model

Today, most players using wood bats have previously used aluminum bats. When transitioning to wood there are several factors to consider and as a new use of wood education is key. 

Weight Distribution

First you must keep in mind that aluminum bats are hollow and wood bats are solid. This means that even if your wood bat is a minus 3 (length to weight ratio) it will feel heavier than an aluminum bat that is also a minus 3. For this reason most players choosing a wood bat will need to select a model that is balanced.

An evenly balanced bat will feel lighter and be easier to control than an end loaded bat.

Balance

The balance of a wood bat is determined by two factors: barrel size and handle diameter.

Most large barrel wood bats tend to be very end loaded as most of the weight is out in the barrel. This causes the bat to feel heavy/end-loaded. Medium to smaller barrel wood bats tend to be more balanced.

Handle diameter will also play a big part in the balance of a wood bat. Bats with thicker handle diameters have more weight displaced throughout the handle of the bat. Taking this weight out of the barrel and shifting it toward the handle will make the bat feel lighter and more balanced. 

Barrel Control

Large barrel bats typically have thin handles and therefore requires experienced bat control with using wood. These models are more likely to break on a miss hit than on a balanced model or a model with a thicker handle.
