Sports Guide: How to Buy a Baseball Bat?

  • Posted by: admin
  • Category: Blog

There are numerous bats to choose from when buying a new baseball bat or softball bat on our website, but it could be challenging to pick just one because it turns out that these ball bashers can be very complicated. So if you find yourself scratching your brain, here is your cheat sheet: a baseball bat buying guide that reduces shopping anxiety and enables you to hold the ideal baseball or softball bat.

Baseball bats are easy to buy only if you know what to look for. There are certain factors to consider to make the right purchase. In this blog we have covered these factors you must look out for. 

Factors to Consider When Choosing Baseball Bats

Length or Drop 

The length you should choose for any bat depends on your height and weight. See our Bat Sizing Chart below for guidance. Once you have the length, you must choose whether to drop. The term “drop” describes the length of the bat less its weight. The weight decreases as the drop height increases. The greatest bat for a young player just getting started is one with a high drop (-10,-12). You should gradually reduce the drop as the child ages because you need to swing a -3 bat in high school. It is intended to be a simple transition.

It is intended to be a simple transition. As the player develops, keep in mind the following general rules:

  • Ages 4 to 6: Employ a tee ball bat.
  • Use a Senior League bat in the age range of seven to ten.
  • Use a Senior League bat in the age range of 11 to 13 which is between -8 and -5.
  • Use a -3 BBCOR bat if you are at least 14 years old.

Barrel 

A BBCOR bat’s barrel measures 2 5/8″. The barrel size of USSSA bats is either 2 5/8″ or 2 3/4″. Either 2 1/4′′ or 2 5/8′′ barrels are used on USA bats.

Materials 

While hybrid bats do exist, composite or alloy are the most common choices. Composite bats require more break-in time but offer a bigger sweet spot and greater pop. Alloy bats feature a smaller sweet spot and less pop, but are less expensive and last longer.

Construction 

You’ll typically have a choice between one- and two-piece bats. One-piece bats have more feedback throughout the swing and are firmer, offering less flex. Due to the handle’s separation from the barrel, two-piece bats have greater flex and produce less feedback and vibration when in contact.

End-Loaded Vs. Balanced

The weight is equally distributed throughout the entire length of the barrel with balanced bats as opposed to end-loaded bats, resulting in a faster swing speed. End-loaded bats are better for power-hungry batters who want to launch the ball over the fence because they are heavier toward the end of the barrel.

Baseball Bats Stamps and Certification to Consider

When hunting for a new baseball bat, you will undoubtedly come across many markings and certifications. This is what they signify:

  • ISA: Independent Softball Association
  • ISF: International Softball Federation
  • NSA: National Softball Association
  • SSUSA: Senior Softball USA
  • ISA: Independent Softball Association
  • BBCOR: Batted Ball Coefficient Of Restitution. BBCOR measures the trampoline effect of the bat.
  • USSSA: United States Specialty Sports Association
  • USSSA BPF 1.15: Bat Performance Factor measures how fast the ball comes off the bat. 1.15 is the standard for youth baseball bats.
  • USA BASEBALL: Bat is approved for the following youth baseball organizations: AABC, Babe Ruth & Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth Baseball & Dixie Boys Baseball, Little League Baseball, PONY Baseball
  • ASA: Amateur Softball Association

 Our buyers have the chance to get hold of any of the following baseball bats. All you need is to place an order. 

BBCOR

The current regulation for adult baseball bats is BBCOR. To ensure that non-wood bats behave more like wood, it measures and manages the trampoline effect, or how much energy is wasted during bat/ball impact. The 2 5/8′′ barrel and -3 length-to-weight ratio are shared by all BBCOR bats. All bats used in high school and college must have BBCOR certification.

USSSA

Ages 14 and under USSSA members are permitted to use 2 1/4″ youth bats and 2 5/8″ or 2 3/4″ big barrel bats, provided that they are USSSA-certified. The term “Senior League” is also frequently used to refer to USSSA bats.

USA

You must use a USA bat if you are a Little League® player (age 14 and under), which can be recognized by the USA bat mark that is visible just above the grip. USA bats are made to perform more like wood than BBCOR bats do. Which one you choose depends on your particular preferences and whether you like swinging a larger barrel through the zone. They will be offered in 2 1/4″ and 2 5/8″ barrel diameters.
