How to Select

How to Select a Custom Wood Bat doesn’t have to be difficult. We have a link below that describes The Lumber you have to chose from, and another section that describes the different models and what they are used for.

Weight: Bigger, stronger players tend to prefer a heavier bat for maximum power.

Smaller players usually benefit from a lighter bat that allows greater bat speed. To determine the right weight for you, swing a variety of bats and see how much weight feels comfortable.

 

Length: A longer bat gives you greater reach, allowing you to hit balls on the other side of the plate. However, longer bats tend to be heavier and the extra weight could slow you down. Much like checking the weight, you need to swing bats of different lengths to decide what length best suits you. The perfect combination of length and weight will help you reach your peak performance.

 

Barrel diameter: Most players 12 and under should use a 2 1/4” barrel. This is the standard barrel size for Dixie Youth and Little League baseball, although some leagues and travel teams are using larger 2 3/4” barrels. High school and college players are restricted to a maximum barrel diameter of 2 5/8”.

League requirements: Virtually all leagues have their own bat requirements and restrictions. For example, high school and college requirements call for BBCOR-certified bats. To avoid costly surprises, make sure you know all league requirements before you go bat shopping.

 

If you still aren’t sure give us a call or send us an email.

All of our Bats come with a sticker on them. Sticker side up, so you know which side of the bat to hit!!
