The 2017 Baum Bat comes with a wood composite construction. The material is also called engineered wood or man-made wood. The material is made by biding derivative wood products. Baum knows the versatility of the material as it is used in the aerospace industry. The material is modern but the bat itself is BBCOR certified and can be used in high schools and colleges. Baum uses this material to make bats which look the same as the wooden products. Because the material can be digitally engineered, Baum has received advice from Major League Baseball to create a similar braking point to wooden bats. Due to safety reasons, the wood composite bats need to be similar in breakability as regular wooden bats.
The AAA Pro-Model Baum Bat has been approved by the MLB for minor league games. This put Baum in the special position of having the only wood composite bat approved for minor leagues by the MLB. Its performance also recommends it for adult use. The bat comes at an attractive price which means it can be a good option for a large number of players. But the bat is not easily found in physical stores and you`ll be better suited to look for the best pricing online.

This means you`ll also save money. Coupled with the reduced buying price, the investment is lowered to a manageable level for most players. It may also be that the BBCOR regulations which allow it to be used even at youth level will propel the bat among the options or college players.
