Why Wood?

Why Wood?


  • If you can hit with wood you can hit with aluminum.
  • Many hitters are beginning to train with a wood bat instead of metal
  • Players are beginning to show great improvement especially in their bat speed.
  • Most hitting instructors prefer to train with wood.
  • Wood bats have a smaller sweet spot.
  • Using a wood bat makes players concentrate on pitch location and proper hitting technique.
  • Wood bats are not as forgiving as metal bats.

Players at all levels using wood bats will benefit with better pitch recognition, quicker/stronger hands and increased bat speed resulting in more hits.


Weight differential

  • Youth players are swinging -7 to -11 oz. metal bats up to age 13. At that poing they are expected to transition to a -3 oz. bat.
  • Training with a wood bat early in playing career makes the transition to the player's next progression easier and more successful.
