Why does any aluminum bat require a "breakin" period? How does an aluminum bat lose it's "pop" after a while?
Alloy barrel bats do not, generally, require a break-in period at all. Composite barrel bats are the bats that a break in period is suggested for. Alloy bats can lose pop over time just through general use. The nature of the game where the bat is being used to hit a solid object with a good amount of swing speed can wear down the materials and cause them to react differently over time.
