Coach Pitch Bats: Alloy vs. Composite
Alloy bats are generally constructed with a one-piece design out of aluminum or aluminum that is mixed with other metals to make a stronger product. The advantage to this strength is that it allows alloy bats can have thinner, more responsive barrel walls.
Composite bats, on the other hand, are made out of a mixture of carbon fiber, graphite, fiberglass, and sometimes Kevlar. Check your league rules before buying a composite-barreled bat, as some leagues restrict their use.
Hybrid bats feature a two-piece design in which an alloy barrel is bonded to a composite handle. This makes the handle lighter and allows the alloy barrel to be made longer than on a traditional alloy bat.
