How do I select a Youth baseball bat?

When selecting a youth bat, make sure you're comfortable with the size of the bat you're swinging. Personal preference plays a key part in selecting a baseball bat, especially for youth players beginning their baseball journey. Heavier baseball bats provide more power, while lighter baseball bats will give a player more bat control and increased bat speed.

Effective January 1, 2018, USA Baseball will adopt a new method for measuring bat performance for testing youth baseball bats.
