By now you have been playing ball for years and most of you know what size bat fits you the best, but it's always good to be reminded of some basics. Let's take a look. It is important to get a bat that fits you so that you can have complete control and maximum performance in every swing. All adult bats have a -3 drop weight and have a 2-5/8 inch barrel. These sizes vary from 29 inches to 35 inches in length. You want to make sure to get a bat that has the perfect size so you are squarely making contact every time up. Adult bats can either be wood or metal. Most players prefer using a metal bat because they tend to be lighter and they are easier to control. Some leagues along with professional baseball have to use wood bats. Wood bats are great training tools to improve your swing. If you miss-hit a ball you will know it. Wood gives you a great understanding of where to make contact with the ball and if you swing a wood bat consistently you can definitely swing a metal bat. High school and college players must use BBCOR certified bats. Just look for the BBCOR certification stamps on the bat to be sure that it is legal for play.
