Choosing the Right Baseball Bat
For a relatively simple piece of equipment, the variety of options when it comes to buying a baseball bat--wood or composite? what size is right for me? should I pay $30 or $300?--can be intimidating. The most important factor to keep in mind, from Little League to the pros, is that buying a bat is a personal decision. It's critical to select a bat properly tailored to your height, weight, skill, and strength levels, within your budget, but equally important is simply how the bat "feels" to you.

Improvements in technology have given today's players more options than ever. A few basic rules of thumb, however, can help narrow your search:

  • Weight: Heavier bats provide more power while lighter bats enable faster swing speeds. Are you strong and athletic, or smaller and more likely to benefit from greater swing speed? Practice-swing a number of differently weighted bats until you find one that's right for you.
  • Length: Longer bats provide greater reach and ability to connect with pitches on the other side of the plate, but the added weight can reduce swing speed and power. Once again, the best approach is to experiment with different lengths to find a bat that suits you.
  • Barrel Diameter: As a general rule of thumb, players age 12 and under should use a 2.25-inch barrel diameter to comply with the majority of youth league regulations. Older players, through high school and college, are typically restricted to a 2.625-inch barrel diameter.
  • League Rules: Most leagues have their own bat requirements, and it's a good idea to be clear on your league's specifications before shopping.
  • Feel: The most crucial factor ultimately comes down to whether a bat feels good to you. It should be comfortable in your hands, have a balanced and fluid swing, and seem like a natural extension of your arms.

Anatomy of a Bat
While bat terminology and technology can seem complex, all bats are made up of three basic components--grip, bat taper, and barrel size.

  • Grip: The bat handle covering, typically made of leather or synthetic leather for a solid grip, or rubber (sometimes with cushioning) to decrease sting when striking the ball.
  • Bat Taper: The diameter of a bat's handle, with a standard taper being 0.97-inches (which can vary based on weight). A larger taper reduces ball shock while adding weight, and smaller tapers enable faster wrist rotation while reducing weight.
  • Barrel Size: Includes the length and diameter of the barrel, or top part, of the bat. Longer barrels provide larger, more forgiving sweet spots, and several different diameters are available.

Worth the Weight
Bats are weighted in ounces with emphasis on balancing weight-to-length ratio, a measure called a bat's "drop" and shown as -6, -8, and so on. For example, a 34-inch bat with a -6 ratio weighs 28 ounces. Choosing the right weight depends on the type of player you are, as stronger players typically benefit from the power of a heavier bat, while smaller or younger players enjoy the increased swing speed and control of a lighter bat.

Different Materials for Different Players
The sheer number of bat materials available today can boggle the mind, but ultimately the options are grouped into three categories--wood, aluminum, and composite.

Wood
Although the sound of a wood bat hitting a baseball has become iconic, the number of players using wood bats is typically restricted to professionals and wood-bat-only leagues. Whether you're a Major Leaguer or simply a baseball purist, look for a bat with a long, wide grain, which indicates a dense, mature tree. Wood bats offer more choices in terms of shape and taper to customize to a player's swing. On the other hand, they have three significant disadvantages: tendency to crack or break, smaller sweet spot, and less hitting power than metal bats.

Composite
Advances in technology have allowed manufacturers to use lighter, stronger composite materials--typically a combination of graphite, fiberglass, and resin--to produce bats with a unique, satisfying feel and large, forgiving sweet spots. Composite bats are lighter than traditional aluminum bats, increasing swing speed and power. Composites also come in single- and double-layer configurations, and graphite and titanium materials added to the inner wall help reduce vibration and "ball sting" when a ball is mis-hit.

Aluminum
A majority of non-professional players today use aluminum bats, mostly due to their lighter weight (which increases swing speed and control) and better durability. Aluminum bats come in single- or double-layer construction, with double-layer bats offering greater durability, power, and rebound.

Aluminum bats are constructed from a variety of alloys. Lighter alloys are thinner and more durable, and the alloy used in an aluminum bat is typically the most significant cost factor. Nearly all aluminum bat alloys represent some combination of aluminum, copper, magnesium, and zinc. Here's a quick overview of today's most popular aluminum alloys:

  • 7046: This durable alloy has been a baseball industry standard for many years, and offers a good balance of price and performance.
  • CU31/7050: One of the first high-performance bat alloys, this proven option is more durable than 7046 as a result of greater levels of copper, magnesium, and zirconium.
  • C405/7055: A common alloy used in more expensive, high-end aluminum bats, this alloy includes greater zirconium content than CU31/7050 for added strength.
  • C555: The addition of scandium to this alloy results in up to 10% more strength than C405/7055.

Selecting the Right Bat Size
The optimal bat size varies based on height and weight for a given player, and can impact technique, swing speed, and other vital components of your game. Selecting the right size from the table below will help ensure you get the most out of your equipment.

The Louisville Slugger is the bench mark of traditional wooden bats. Through my 60 years I've owned 5 or six, and just love to have one around the house, to shag a few flys with new baseball fans. I LOVE the feel of this unfinished Ash, just like the first one I had in 1963!

I have buying wood bats for years and play in an adult baseball league. This is the first bat I have bought that didn't have any finish glaze/seal on it. No problem with the bat, it was the C271 model but I expect it was a blemish. I needed to use the bat due to having a practice game that day and I wrap the handles with tape and the unfinished wood doesn't bother me. What did was that the bat doesn't have a good sweet spot. Lots of vibration and no real crack. It's now in the team bat bag but doubt I ever use it in a game. It's the official "loaner" bat.
I would have never picked this bat off the rack. In my opinion it's not worth the savings. Better to feel it and touch it first if they are going to send out this quality.

Just what i was expecting. It is unfinished so i was able to stain it myself and a apply a thin lacquer finish to it...just to my liking. Haven't used it to swing at balls just yet but I imagine it will do its job until it doesnt. Not disappointed at all.

First off, I am not one to get on here and post a review good or bad on an item unless 1) It is unbelievably good or 2) Unbelievably bad. This bat arrived quickly to me and I was excited to take it out to take some cuts. After hitting around five or six pitches, it cracked about five inches up from the knob. Now before someone starts making accusations that I am some tool who doesn't know how to use a wood bat, I have a Mizuno BCC 2000 wooden bat that I used every day in high school my senior year for live arm batting practice as well as cage hitting. I also used it for BP during American Legion practices. I used that bad for over a year and a half solid and it is still one solid piece. In fact, after my Louisville Slugger failed me, I grabbed my Mizuno bat and continued to hit for the rest of the afternoon. This is my last purchase of a Louisville Product.

This bat is unfinished wood, but after receiving it, I sprayed it with 2 coats of a clear sealant. I like the balance of the bat and the sound of it hitting line drives! The price was right and I ordered a 2nd one for a back up.

This bat is tapered a little bit more, so it is a little lighter than your average wood bat. This of course makes the joy spot a bit smaller, and the cupped end shifts the balance to the handle a bit.

Good for a contact hitter like me, but not suited for power guys.

I play college baseball and use this bat for tee work, soft toss, and batting practice. It hits well, slightly above average pop, and the unfinished look pulls it together as a worthy instrument.
