Wood Baseball Bats
Wood Baseball Bats have a wide variety of different models and use different types of woods. The most common types of wood used in making wood bats are going to be Maple, Ash, Birch, Bamboo, and composite wood. Maple is a very dense wood, so a bat crafted from it will have a very responsive barrel. Also, because of its density, maple wood bats often have a heavier feel to them. Maple is by far the most common type of wood used in Major League Baseball. Ash is the lightest of the common wood types used in bats. Contact hitters often choose Ash bats for increased bat speed because of this lighter feel. Ash has a wider grain structure than other woods, so that it will have a “softer” feel and flexes during the swing. Birch wood bats are going to feel like a mixture of the hard surface of Maple and the flexible feel of ash. Bamboo and Composite wood bats are more durable than these other types of woods, but they are not legal in all leagues because they do not come from a single piece of wood.
