How to Buy a Baseball Bat


How to Buy a Baseball Bat. If you’re going
to play America’s pastime, you’re gonna need a bat. So go get one, slugger… You
will need Sporting goods store and batting glove. Step 1. If you’re in a league, look
up the restrictions for bats, both in material and size. Bats are usually made of wood or
metal. The sweet spots are the same, but metal bats are easier to swing—though they’re
often more expensive and banned from some leagues. Little League bats typically must
be under 2¼” in girth and less than 33” long. Step 2. Go to the store and pick out
a few bats within your budget and size restrictions. If you wear batting gloves, take them with
you to the store and put them on them while handling the bats. Step 3. Match your height
with the appropriate bat size. Though there’s no hard-and-fast rule for matching a batter
with his or her bat, there are some guidelines from which to start. Step 4. Kids 8 to 10
should bat with a 16- or 17-ounce bat if they’re under 50” tall, all the way up to a 20-ounce
bat if they’re over 60” tall. Step 5. For 11 and 12 year olds, bats should fall
between 18 to 23 ounces. Step 6. For high schoolers and up, bats range from 27 to 31
ounces. Step 7. Once you’ve selected the appropriate bat, pick it up and feel it. Take
a few swings, being careful not to hit anybody or anything. Take the bat with one hand and
move it around with your arm extended. If the bat is too heavy for you, you’ll try
and bend at your elbow—rather than your wrist—to move the bat around. Step 8. Purchase
the bat that feels the most comfortable. Take it to a batting cage and start swinging for
the fences. Did you know In 2007, New York City approved a ban on non-wood baseball bats
for all high school games, saying balls fly off the bats at faster, more dangerous speeds.
