Why use a wood bat?
Using a wood bat allows young hitters to develop their swing the right way and prepare for the game as well as the next level. Aluminum and composite bats allow hitters to get away with poor mechanics that will ultimately be exposed at the next level. There is a lot of pressure when transitioning to a wood bat and it’s important to not ignore this pressure. With education of the wood bat lifestyle, guidance in finding the right model for each individual hitter and the development of disciplined hitting mechanics, a wood bat can create confidence for a young hitter and make this transition much easier.
How does a wood bat enhance performance? Doesn’t a wood bat decrease performance in comparison to aluminum?
Because wood bats force hitters to maintain a compact swing and stay short to the ball, the mechanics stressed by a wood bat allow for a consistent, disciplined swing and better strike zone judgment. With aluminum you can create and get away with bad habits as well as develop poor strike zone discipline.
Why not use a composite bat? It’s cheaper and more sustainable. I can buy 1 or 2 composites and be set for a while vs. continuing to purchase new wood bats.
Composite bats generate poor results and lack pop, ultimately impacting on-field performance. Pro-quality wood bats maintain high performance, a hard-hitting surface and sustainability while allowing the hitter to feel natural connections vital to learning about the details in their swing. Whether it’s performing in front of an M.L.B. scout/cross-checker, playing in a premier showcase or for your local team, wood bats are a part of the next level and it’s important for young hitter’s to be prepared and develop confidence earlier rather than later. It’s not just a bat…it’s an investment for the future!

What is a cup and what does cupping a bat do?
Cupping is the process of taking some weight out of the end of the barrel. Typically it is about half an ounce. Although it won't impact the overall weight, cupping your bat is a way to give you improved distribution of weight. It will make your bat a little less end-loaded and improve your total bat control. Cupping a bat is a good option for young hitter's who are still growing. Although distribution of weight is important.
