Here Is An Easy To Use Baseball Bats Buying Guide

When choosing a baseball bat it helps to have some kind of rough baseball bats buying guide to help you find you way through the maze of products that are available on the market these days. When buying a baseball bat there are a number of factors that you should take into consideration, before you make your purchase. These factors include level of play and whether you are playing with friends, in an amateur league or in competitive tournament, size of the batter, the price you are prepared to pay and naturally, the comfort factor. Aluminum baseball bats tend to be the bats that are preferred by players, over the wooden bat options.

This tends to be because aluminum bats are lighter in weight and have extra strength. Lighter bats allow the hitter to generate enough speed to put some extra energy into their swing, and they can provide more "pop" of the baseball off the bat, and are much more durable than wooden bats. The comfort level a player feels while holding and swinging the baseball bat, is by far the most important factor for a potential bat buyer. Just as is the case when buying any piece of sports equipment, the more comfortable you are the better. When choosing a baseball bat you should take a few swings with the bat and try to picture yourself in a game. If you are choosing a bat for someone else - say, a child - then take this piece of advice from our baseball bats buying guide - make sure they can swing the bat without struggling.

If it is too big or too heavy it will make it hard for them to score and this can quickly mean they lose interest in the game. Of course having the right size bat is also vital to having a great game. In general, taller players should use longer bats. Here is a table to help you work out which bat is right for you according to your height. Age Bat Length 5-7 24" - 26" 8-9 26"-28" 10-11 28"-30" 11-12 30"-32" 13-14 31"-32" 15-16 32"-33" 17+ 34" Weight also has an influence on the size of the bat that is optimal for each player. This table offers the recommended bat weight to correspond with your weight.
