What You Need to Know When Buying a Baseball Bat
Anyone who has some experience in baseball knows there are more than a few things that make up a good baseball bat. That is why when you decide to go out to buy one, you will require a few tips in your mind. Let’s look at a few basic components of a good baseball bat:
- Type of hitter
There are basically 3 types of hitters. Singles hitter, power hitter, and extra base hitter. If you want a singles hitter bat, a short one that maximizes swing speed is the best. If on the other hand, you are a power hitter, bats with long barrels are the best for optimal power swings. Extra base hitters work best with bats that are able to balance power and swing speeds.
You can choose a bat depending on how you mishit. If you are most likely to mishit along the barrel end of the bat, one made from ash will be best. If you do so on the lower end of the barrel, choose one made of maple. Baseball bats made of birch are suitable for people who are likely to mishit on all parts of the bat because of their ability to flex.
- Cupped baseball bats
Cupping refers to the area at the end of the baseball bat that is curved. Its function is to enable manufacturers to get close to the drop weight. It carries with it certain advantages including balancing out the wood bat.
