Benefits of weighted bats
Both baseball and softball players of all levels are fully familiar with using weighted bats just before a game hoping that it will increase swinging velocity. But is this really a founded hypothesis? Bat-swinging speed is among the most important factors to be considered by players right next to accuracy.
From a purely scientific point of view, it is believed that activating certain motor units in the muscles using a heavier weight is passed on as muscle memory when you switch on to a lighter weight. This leads to more velocity which ultimately results in a more power packed ball hit. This power hit is what players are aiming to maximize.
Batters are also aware of the need to develop a proper swing pattern. When using a lightweight bat, your swing pattern is not really well developed due to the fact that the body tends to maintain its own motion. Using a heavy bat develops the swing mechanics necessary to make a high speed hit. It then registers in muscle memory helping you perfect your swings over time.
And then there is the psychological part. When warming up before a game with a heavier bat, the player already believes that when he steps up to the plate, the standard bat will feel considerably lighter. This type of thinking by itself gives the batter a competitive advantage helping him to self-motivate and entering the game in the right winning attitude. This could be the difference between winning and losing the game.
There is a reason batting weights have become popular over the years. Players report more improved and enhanced performance as a result to using heavier bats.
