Questions and Answers for 2014 Easton S1: SL14S110 Senior League
My son plays in a 12 and under league and will play 45-50 games this year. How long should this bat last for this age level? A few of the boys on his team also use his bat and he is concerned the bat will be 'dead' quickly.
There is no set time period or number of hits that are in a certain bat. Too many factors go into the durability of the bat to be able to estimate the lifespan.The 2014 Easton S1 (SL14S110) is an extremely durable composite bat but with extended use, all bats can see durability issues or a decline in performance. There are ways to help expand the lifespan of the bat. Having just your player use the bat rather than allowing teammates to use the bat as well will help limit the wear and tear it faces. Also, using the bat in only game situations and having a separate bat for batting practice will help prolong the lifespan. We also recommend not using the bat in weather below 55 degrees. The baseball can condense and become harder at this point and this could damage the bat. Lastly, we do not recommend using the bat to hit anything but approved baseballs. Training balls or yellow dimpled cage balls can cause damage to the bat that can shorten the lifespan.
