aluminum bats
Aluminum Bats
  • Aluminum is lighter in weight which increases control and bat speed. Balls travel farther with aluminum over other metals.
  • Despite generally higher costs than other materials, aluminum is durable and not prone to crack or break
  • Lighter weight bats also increase the "sweet spot," the hitting zone on the bat's barrel that gives the maximum place to put metal to ball
  • Double-layer bats offer more durability and power, since the ball rebounds off the bat with more authority
  • Aluminum--Alloy is frozen and reheated to provide greater durability, less vibration and 2-4% greater distance
  • Wood bats are used in Major League Baseball, due to making the game more interesting with today’s professionals.
  • Wood bats offer more choices in shape and taper that can be customized to a player's swing
  • Wood has three big disadvantages:
  • Bats crack and break
  • Reduced sweet spots on the barrel
  • Far less hitting power than metal bats
  • Ash provides just the proper amount of tensile strength and resiliency, as well as hard wood maple.

Additional Bat Technology
  • Technology has enabled bat makers to use lighter, stronger materials. Graphite and titanium are just two of these.
  • Both are usually added to thinner-wall aluminum bats, enabling bats to be lighter and increasing a player's swing speed
  • These materials also increase durability and the batter's sweet spot
  • This is one of the reasons why MLB players are only allowed to used wooden bats.
