Choosing the Right Youth Baseball Bat - JustBats.com Buying Guide
A guide to help you choose the right youth baseball bat.
When searching for the perfect youth bat, size totally matters. In fact, it’s probably the most important factor because it allows players to work on their hitting mechanics, batting stance, and swing speed. So, let’s begin by checking out this awesome bat sizing chart. As you can see, it’s very handy and easy to use. All you have to do is match your height and weight to figure out what length is recommended for you. If you’re still not sure which length is best for you, no need to worry -- just call our experts. They’re available 24/7 for your convenience. In terms of weight, most youth bats feature a length to weight ratio, or drop, between minus 10 and minus 13.5. So what does that mean exactly? Good question. Length to weight ratio represents how many ounces a bat weighs compared to its length. The higher the number, the lighter it is. So a minus 13 bat is going to be easier to swing than a minus 8 length to weight ratio bat. So which drop is right for you? Another good question - it’s hard to know when you’re first starting out, but I’ll let you in on a little secret - it really comes down to your size and strength, so I recommend trying several out. Once you do, pick the one that’s easiest to control and swing. But remember, the greater mass a bat has, the easier it is to drive the ball with some power behind it.
