Senior League Baseball Bats

Baseball bats are available in both wood and a variety of metal versions; purists often prefer the wood bat, but aluminum or other alloy bats are usually standard at non-professional levels. Wood bats still have their own beauty as well as technical advantages; for example, the baseball player who practices with a wood bat can get more oomph from an aluminum bat, due to differences in weight and a more precise "sweet spot."
Senior League baseball bats are designed for kids 13-15 years old. Most senior baseball leagues opt for aluminum bats as the standard. Quality Senior League baseball bats generally cost around $200 and up. The more expensive bats boast a tough, hard aluminum alloy or other high-tech composite designed to weigh less and punch more. Usually, the thinner the bat's walls are, the more expensive the bat. This is because it requires a more advanced shell. However, there are plenty of used bats available that can cost as little as $25.
When purchasing Senior League baseball bats, consider the player's height and weight. Select


a bat that gives you the most length for the least amount of weight. Baseball bats are given ratings based on their length (inches) and weight (ounces). So, if a bat with a rating of (-10) is 33 inches long, it weighs 23 ounces. The higher the negative number, the lighter the bat is for its length.
Picking the wrong baseball bat can hinder a potentially good hitter. In fact, when choosing a bat, you should give it the ultimate test by actually hitting pitched balls. This allows the batter to get a true feel for the grip, length, weight, and sweet spot. Go to a local batting cage and try out a multitude of bats, or borrow bats at a local Senior League practice before you make one of the most important investments in baseball.
