Youth Baseball Bat Comparisons 2016

Finding the right bat for a young player can be difficult. In youth baseball, players are rapidly developing every year, making it difficult to find the right equipment. Because of this, there is a very broad range of sizes and weights when it comes to bats. We’ve already discussed the general criteria for choosing bats for young players, but it’s important to remember not to get too caught up in the metrics, but in the feel. Being comfortable and capable with your bat is paramount. If you’re not ready for a heavier/longer bat do yourself a favor and don’t hurt your chances at the plate by being stubborn.

Here’s a quick, general refresher on appropriate bat sizes.
