How do I take care of a Tee Ball bat?
Temperatures For Tee Ball Bats
Regarding temperature and bats of different materials, many people believe that composite bats tend to be much more sensitive to temperature than alloy bats. However, a bat of any material will run a higher chance of becoming damaged when its used in lower temperatures. Many manufacturers have suggestions on minimum temperatures for when to use their bats. However, as a rule of thumb, we recommend that you avoid (or attempt to limit) using your bat in temperatures below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. There isn't a maximum temperature that you should avoid using your bat in; however composite bats tend to have slightly increased pop in hotter weather.
Additional Tee Ball Bat Tips
- Limit the use of your game bat in the batting cage. Save the wear and tear for when it matters: in the game.
- Do not practice with dimpled balls. These balls can have damaging effects on your bat.
- Limit the number of teammates that use the same bat. Bats DO break. The fewer hits on the bat, the better chance you have at lasting durability.
- Do not use your bat to knock the dirt off of your cleats. This can damage the bat.
- If using a wood bat, swing with the label facing toward you. This is a common mistake and often will lead to a prematurely broken bat.
