Please explain the reasons why players prefer maple vs birch vs ash wood bats? (My understanding is that this is the order of relative hardness, durable, and flight distance; but the reverse is true for softer feel and better control for place hitting.)
Maple is the hardest, most dense wood, and is typically the preferred wood of experienced hitters since it isn't very forgiving on off-center hits and swings a little heavier than the other two woods. Ash offers the most flex, and can handle more hits off the end or near the handle than maple before breaking, and is lighter to swing making ash a better choice for a player who is just beginning to swing wood. Birch offers hardness closer to that of maple, while having flex similar to ash making it a great option for intermediate wood bat hitters.
So I have a showcase tournament coming up and I'm looking for something cheap, but good enough just to get me through the weekend. Will this bat perform well in games?
This bat should perform fine, yes. Birch is a good, all around wood. Ash bats are the most flexible, maple is the most solid/stiff, and birch falls in the middle of both.
So is this bat good for use in a men's adult league?
Yes, this bat would be good for use in a men's adult wood bat league.
Has this gone through the ink dot test?
No, the Rawlings Professional Birch Wood Baseball Bat (BIRXXX) has not had the ink dot test done.
