Bat Coach Suggestion

* Please select an answer to continue.

or  Start Over
Using the information you provided the Bat Coach, we suggest you use a  inch bat. Most  inch bats will range in weight from  to  ounces. The heavier bats usually produce more power behind each hit, where the lighter bats create faster bat speed to catch up with the faster pitchers.

However, if you are a bigger or stronger player in your age group you may want to go up an inch to a  inch bat if a larger size is available.
If you are a smaller player for your age group, you may prefer to possibly move down an inch to a  inch to help generate more bat speed.

Aluminum Bats- These bats come in one piece or half and half. The half and half bats have aluminum barrels with composite handles while the one piece bats are made of only aluminum.

Wood Bats-There is several different kinds of wood slow pitch softball bats to choose from.

Which weight of bat are you looking for?

* Please select a weight to continue.

or  Start Over
The most popular weight for slow pitch softball bats sold weigh 28 ounces(35%). The second most popular weight is the 27 ounce, followed by 26 ounce, then 30 ounce. When deciding on a size, you can use the 28oz as a starting point. If you feel like you are average to above average strength the 28 ounce is your weight.

If you feel you would like greater bat speed or a little more control of where your hits are going, you should select a lighter bat. Typically the 26-28 ounce bats are for the line drive/gap hitters.

If you are a power hitter or a stronger player, the 30 ounce would be the bat of choice. Softball Bats greater than 30 ounces are for the strongest of players, or a great bat to use in practice.

What type of wood bat would you like?

* Please choose a wood type to continue.

or  Start Over
Maple - Maple bats are currently the most popular choice amongst Major League players, although choosing a bat is a lot of personal preference. Maple is a strong, stiff, and durable wood, making it ideal for power hitters and players that do not like much flex in their bat.

Ash - Ash is one of the most common woods used to make bats. Ash bats have a lightweight feel and provide more "give" than maple bats which makes them perfect for players looking for a wood bat with flex.

Bamboo - Since bamboo is naturally hollow, bamboo bats are constructed by compressing strips of bamboo together. This creates a very strong and durable, yet lightweight and elastic wood bat.

Birch - Birch is a relatively new wood for baseball bats. Birch offers players more flexibility than maple, with a lower breakage rate than ash.

Composite Wood - Composite wood bats are made from a combination of wood and various composite materials. These bats are extremely durable, but may not be legal for use in some leagues.
